Well, u can make a mc with the graphs (number and running thingie) with stops on them, using the getBytesTotal and divide that by the number of numbers u have (like 10 when u loop from 9 to 0)

Then use if statements to check wether or not a certain percentage has been reached and if so to send the clock mc to the next frame.
