learn how to make possibly the simplest and most easiest preloaders in flash.



Rated 2 / 5 stars

Not the worst I’ve seen.

Most people will choose the NG preloader to spare themselves of the time and effort a preloader takes, though the people who do not like branded preloaders will enjoy the independent preloader like the one you suggested. N

Now for your technical brief and recommendations.

Graphics: 4, A very simple background and the screen shots from flash seemed very choppy and not exactly contributed as you wanted them to.

Style: 2, Very basic, a couple of buttons, text and choppy screen shots. I recommend a bit more class, nicer looking buttons, perhaps with a sound effect added to them.

Sound: 0, There was no sound, a simple loop of audio from the audio portal would have been nice to entertain us during the read.

Violence: 0, There was none, but as with any good film, you can insert violence. Make a preloader in the shape of an arm, moving towards someone’s head and it will load just as the fist reaches the face. Thus representing some violence. Try it, who knows, you might be fond of it.

Interactivity: 2, no play button, just the switching buttons, it’s just not enough… We are arrogant people who enjoy big flashes with plenty of buttons, make a play button, a quality button, a sound button ( with sound to make sure the button isn’t for nothing )

Humor: 1, It’s a tutorial, it’s not meant to be of humor, but a couple funny gestures never killed any one have they? As much as funny example of what you made in the tutorial would do.

Overall: 4, It’s just not that good, and it needs work, I sure hope you follow my suggestions, and know that I admire your work as I too am trying hopelessly with Flash.

P.S: as the last review was in 04, you will probably not see this, but if you do, I hope it helps.
