It seems as though I have been too optimistic about my results and offline testing using Flash MX
I had trouble getting the preloader working at all. Then I had trouble getting it to show before it reaches 90%. I have all my mc's exported to the first frame through linkage and they do not "exist" on the main timeline. I have gone about this problem by creating a ghost (skipped, never played) scene which exists of frames including those mc and I took the export to first frame option off.
I tested the preloader and it worked beautifully. Smooth and from 0 to 100%. But when I upload my site it starts loading and stops at 4%. Nothing happens after that. How can this be that the test works in flash and not online? Does the problem lay on the side of the provider or browser? I am really lost on this one and would appreciate any help. If any code is required pls let me know.
