Creating Preloader (Cont.)

Now we move to the action layer. It's time to make the loading process run by adding some action scripts. At first keyframe put the action:

	total = _root.getBytesTotal();
	loaded = _root.getBytesLoaded();
	if (loaded>=total) {

Go to keyframe 23, add action as follows:


At keyframe 24 (last keyframe) add action:


Action Analysis

Action at the first keyframe tells the preloader to check if the last frame of movie has loaded, and if it's loaded then play the movie. Action at the last keyframe (24) allows to keep looping in preloader scene to the first keyframe until movie has loaded. Action at keyframe 23 tells the dynamic text to display the next message. This dynamic text will be explained more later.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
