Play button not appearing May. 23rd, 2012 @ 06:41 PM Reply

Hello, I'm completely new at this site. I uploaded my first animation, and got suggestions to add a preloader and play button. I've never had to do this before, having only put videos on youtube, so I kind of an going at it blind. It's a very small clip, so there's really nothing to load, but I do think a play button would be nice. I downloaded the basic Newgounds preloader, and put it in the first frame of a new layer, but for some reason it isn't appearing on my video, which is continuing to just automatically play. However when I play the SWF in Flash, it works.

Here's the animation:

Any suggestions? I'm sure it's something stupidly easy I'm missing.

Yeah, a few times actually. I have re-uploaded the renewed file, and in the video there is a brief white flash which I believe is the preloader and button being skipped over. I checked the code, and it says to stop before playing, so I'm stuck.

your animation seems to work fine on my end. NG preloader with a play button.

Huh! Well look at that. I guess it fixed itself, or maybe the new video needed time to replace the old one. Thanks for helping me out.
