First off, thanks in advance for any assistance!
I am currently using FlashMX2004 and am attempting to create a preloader for a movie banner. My movie only has two key frames with a number of layers...the first keyframe, houses a layer with the preloader movie, and the second keyframes, hold movie clips of a number of other things.
So, I went and tried to study a tutorial at Sitepoint.....
and created my flash preloader using all the info there. His code, has a ' in it that is wrong, so don't try and cut and paste it. If you check it out, you'll see what I mean. But even after realizing that, the preloader, just causes a strobe effect on my screen. preloader/movie snapshot/preloader/movie snapshot....and that continues super fast.
The preloader doesn't extend, the numbers don't show up, all i see is the bar i created, and then instantaneously, i see a quick movie blurb.
So, that didn't work. So I went and purchased a book on it. Russel Chun's Visual QuickPro Guide FlashMX2004. Needless to say, everything I have done in here is not working either. I am desperate, please help me. I have a banner, that needs a preloader, and I have spent 50 hours trying to figure it out. If you could even just direct me to a quality tutorial, I would be exstatic!
Here is the file if anyone wants to download and check it out, with the AS put in from the SitePoint Tutorial:
Thanks in advance!
