Placeholder ext images messed up when i added a preloader?

Hi all. I had this animation which was working perfect until I had to add a preloader, now that I have added the preloader the placeholder does not load the external images.
The code I used for my placeholder is like this:

[AS]//Active Menu Disabled.
Stage.showMenu = false;
// This is relative to the gfx folder. Any additional images must be placed inside the gfx folder. Trevor Saint
randpic = pics[random(pics.length)];

But this now appears to be missed for some reason. I had to add a new KFrame making two in total for the preloader. Can anyone help me fix this problem?
