I need help making a preloader for my main movie that uses components. Because components must be loaded in the first frame, if I use a standard preload approach the preloader won't show until 20% of the movie is loaded. So I found this work around here:

Everthing works great but only one problem. My movie loads a sound swf into level 1 and then the movie starts at the same time. When i use the above preloader it can't load the sound. You can see it at http://www.upfieldmedia.com/2ndpreload.html and if you go here http://www.upfieldmedia.com you will see what it does with a standard preloader. The page apprears after about 20% loaded and the sound loads correctly. ( need to clear your cache before you check each page)

My problem is how do I combine this preloader with my current movie? my files are here http://www.upfieldmedia.com/files.htm
