Preloader of dynamic swf not working. Please help!

Hi all,

Thanks for checking my post out.

I have an external swf in a containerMC in my main movie…the external swf has a preloader…

The preloader is a movieclip with a dynamic text box in it (instance name on the text box is ‘status’).

The movieclip has these actions on it:

onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
	loaded = _parent.getBytesLoaded();
	total = _parent.getBytesTotal();
	framesLoaded = Math.ceil((loaded/total)*200);
	status.text = framesLoaded+"";
	// Text that will appear in loading bar
	if (framesLoaded>=200) {

The movieclip doesn’t load the movie! It does show the preloader briefy for about a frame before just playing the rest of the movie which then stops mid-way through animation to do some more loading!!!

I’d really appreciate anyone’s thoughts on my this isn’t working as it should.

Thank you very much and I hope to hear from you.
