This is my first post here, and will most probably not be the last...
The project I'm currently working on needs to preload several external files. I know how to make a preloader and how to load external files. And what I want to do now is give the user feedback on every single file that loads, in shape of text or a progress bar (haven't been decided yet). But when i test the movie in Flash (5, if it makes a differense) with the show streaming option, I can see the loading process on the main file, but the external one just loads instatly from my HD, which mean I have no idea if the preloader actually works properly or not. I know that I could upload it on the internet and test the loading from there, but I don't want to do that EVERY time I test the movie.
Is it just me doing something wrong or is this a bug/problem in flash? (that it doesn't slow down the loading of external files)
Any kind of help would be very appreciated!
