Why did my movie shrink?

I modified the preloader from the kirupa tutorial for the load bar and percentage to allow the preloading of an external swf. My only problem is that the external swf file that is loaded in the createEmptyMovieClip shrinks and is not the same size as main frame.


this.onEnterFrame = function () {
 bytes_loaded = Math.round(this.tutorial.getBytesLoaded());
 bytes_total = Math.round(this.tutorial.getBytesTotal());
 getPercent = bytes_loaded/bytes_total;
 _root.loadBar._width = getPercent*100;
 _root.loadText = "Preloading " + Math.round(getPercent*100)+"%";
 if (bytes_loaded == bytes_total) {


Anyone know what’s up?

Have you tried:

this.createEmptyMovieClip("tutorial", 1);
**this.tutorial._width = [recruiter2.swf width];
this.tutorial._height = [recruiter2.swf height];**

Well the size of it should be 800 x 600 everytime I seem to set it to that size the screen goes totally white but I can still hear sound so I know it’s playing. It’s just not on the root frame.

Ok I just started over and put it in a new fla document and it works fine. That’s really weird.
