Slide show preloader

Hi there -

i have built an xml-driven image slide show that works exactly like this :

However i want to achieve something slightly different: as opposite as having each image preloading during the slide show, i want all the images to be preloaded and then the slideshow to start (something a’ la’ Josh Davis, he does exactly that in his image gallery)

I have tried to tweak that tutorial with no success. The images seem to load, but when the slide show starts is quite clear that each image has not fully loaded, only after a few iterations the animation is smooth.

Anybody has some knowledge to spare on this pls?

Cheers :ne:
