Make Bar Preloaders

This is, without a doubt, the hardest way to make a preloader, however I use it in my everyday games and tutorials. It's kind of vague, so do the best you can and bear with me.

I know there are flaws, because I was sitting up until 12 at night making this. my brain is fried, and I am too lazy to fix it. So if you see any major things, point them out please.

And I used flash 8, so if you are using a different version and you seem to be having troubles, maybe that's why. :)

Thank you for viewing my tutorial, and please don't rate it just because you had nothing better to do. I want you to really consider the time and effort I put into this. (Not really.)

An amazing Tutorial

I like that this is about a preloader bar a good one at that Nice game type here The visual of the front end is nice but could see it having more depth there, but for the mostpart this was a good and decent tutorial you bring on some nice ideas and a good concept of tools


Nice little tut:D

The musics VERY bad and gets annoying really fast. You should've made a mute button and a wider variety of songs.
As many people are starting to use AS3, I'd recommend you to do so too. Anyways, it's a good tutorial for anyone wanting to create their own preloader.

But next time, remember to write wether it's AS2 or AS3 (as I've some experience using AS2-3, I know that it's AS2).
