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) {
		_root.gotoAndPlay(30)
	}
	

Go to keyframe 23, add action as follows:

	_root.text.nextFrame();
	

At keyframe 24 (last keyframe) add action:

	gotoAndPlay(1);
	

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:

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
