I've received the question, what is a MC multiple times now so I'd just like to add that an MC is a Movie Clip.

Good Teaching

This is a great way to learn about great gamemaking. In my opinion, even though the preloader is not a big part of the game, it sets the bar for the game. More screenshots would be nice but this is good.

Thanks for the review, I'll consider than in future tutorials if I make them.

Not very practical.

That background was immensely annoying and just lowered the usefulness of this tutorial, in my opinion. You didn't explain much of the script, and the framerate for "animating" it relies entirely on the connection speed of the user, meaning that people with broadband might view it at the intended FPS, but someone on dial-up will see it in uber-slow-motion. This could easily be fixed if you tried. Although this tutorial does teach one to make an animated preloader, it is very simple and limited in terms of compatibility with different connection rates.
Although, I still think it deserves a place on NG, so you get a 2/5.
