Preloader

Although 183K might not take long to download on a high-bandwidth connection, it takes at least 40 seconds to pass through a 56K modem. An indicator can be created that will display the progress as the movie is loading.

In older versions of Flash, the only way to show a preloader’s progress was by comparing the _framesloaded and _totalframes properties of the movie or a movie clip. Unfortunately, this method was accurate only if the data was spread fairly evenly among the frames of the movie or movie clip. It wouldn’t even be possible to create a progress indicator for this game with this method because the entire movie fits into one frame on the main timeline.
