I had originally started to ponder on how to make a smoother loadbar then what the framesloaded function could provide, so that bar wouldn't jolt accross the screen when it was loading data.

This is fairly simple and I cannot take credit for this at all, I have taken snippits of code and put them together to make a preloading bar.

By using the original ifFrameloaded code and another snippit of code I found in a tutorial on here I slapped together a loadbar that relied on frames loaded and bytes loaded.

First layer named Actionscipt with 3 frames.

Frame 1:
if (_framesloaded>=_totalframes) {
gotoAndPlay(3);
} else {
_root.loader._xscale = (getBytesLoaded()/getBytesTotal()*100);
}

Frame 2:
gotoAndPlay(1);

Frame 3:
I left blank to let it continue on to the next scene without interupption.

Second layer named loadbar. In this I put a movie clip that had a bar in it. And giving the loadbar the instance name loader it all works properly.

I'm sure the (_framesloaded>=_totalframes) could be substituted with getbytes but for what it is worth this is a functional loadbar and has worked effectively for me, so I am content with it.
