  • Is the first page and has preloader.swf embedded in it.
  • Also include the following TAG in your index.html page:
    <%lt%>_____ http-equiv="REFRESH" content="10; url=need_f.html"<%gt%>
    NOTE: Replace ____ with the word meta above.
  • If your browser stays on the 'index.html' page for more than 10sec, it will automatically move the user to the need_f.html page.


  • Checks to see if what version of FLASH is being used by the client.

    FLASH 1, 2, 3: Will freeze on the index.html page until the meta tag will refresh the page and prompt the client to update.
    FLASH 4: When adding String objects in Flash 4 the syntax is different. Therefore (test = "4" + "4" = "8") which will freeze the user on this page(see below), and the meta tag will refresh the page and prompt the client to update.
    FLASH 5: When adding String objects in Flash 5, the syntax (test = "4" + "4" = "44") and this will pass the test and go to the FRAME Label "Passed" (see below). It will then get your main page's URL (currently index1.html).

  • Your main page should be called 'index1.html'

    NOTE: If you decide to change it from 'index.html' change the page name in the frame Labeled "PASSED".

» 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.
