Session 3: Preloaders

9/18 Update: Just fixed a bug.
It's been a long time since I did one of these, I finally switched to Flash MX. I've mega compressed it to 100+ KB for all you dial-ups. Hope you learn something.
What would you like to see next?

If you're wondering why you get this error:

Target not found: Target="undefined" Base="_level0"

It's because the loader bar could not be found. This is okay, because when you open the .swf the file will load immediately, leaving no time to control the loader bar. It will work fine when you upload it to a website.

Any questions? Hate/Love mail?

delivers exactly what it promises. Simple and informative. Really great. Tho i recommend actionscripting a preloader more like the newgrounds one for a smoother animation but still great and simple for people who want to make images like you say in your tutorial hearts or whatever. Really gd and i bet most newground users will take this and learn from it however simple it is. Like to see ya next tutorial to see what other ideas you have.
