I see preloader tutorials that are too hard to follow. Once i figured it out, i made an easy to use tutorial.

Uhmm help me

ok so like I tried this and it was the first one where I got the preloader to actually WORK. SO yeah I got numbers moving WOO.

But then I made a scene two and it's not..working. It's like paused and won't play--I have to right click and tell it to play. Is there any way to fix this? Like adding a button or something or what...

I'm really confused and would appreciate any help you can give me :(

I'm trying to make a video for my boyfriend and I want a preloader in it..

I saw every tut on preloader and still i have a Q

You know... i saw every tutorial and tried them all... but none of them work!!!! grr. makes me mad!
And then i saw your tutorial, i tought: "Oh god! let this one help me!" And i see it is the same...
And i pop up with the question: Do i really HAVE to add a scene? or can i adjust the script alittle tiny bit? that it only skips to frame 1? coz if i add a scene... my whole movie is ****** up! and you know thats not good!
So i ask: Please... Do i REALLY HAVE to add a scene?.
Bdw the tutorial outlook looks good! i like the background!
