Re: [Flashcoders] Smart Preloading

2009-04-17 Thread Dennis - I Sioux

Hey Allandt,

Thanks for your reply.

I already found that one.. it was linked to from the earlier mentioned 
Greensock.

Seems like that one can't load mc's from the library aswell..

I actually want to switch of the load before 1st .. and when entering a 
new level.. load the level clips..(if not already loaded).


The UILoader mentions that it can load mc's aswell (at the source 
property).. but there isn't any example on how to do it.. and the logical 
ways aren't working.


Thanks

  It's possible that you can use these preload a list of movie clips in

Actually, there is a crude way to do it which is uncheck the export on
first frame and then place each level on a subsequent keyframe in the main
timeline (frames you'll never actually reach during playback). Flash will
load the keyframes in order so essentially, it will do what you're seeking
to do.

Hey Jonathan,

Thanks for the reply.
I was already trying the same solution now.

Only bad thing is.. that if the level wasn't laoded yet.. there will be a 
freeze moment.. not animated loading or percentage.

Re: [Flashcoders] Smart Preloading

2009-04-16 Thread Dennis - I Sioux

Hey Glen,

Greensock isn't for preloading movieclips right?
The swf's own movieclips in his library..

Or has it got an option for that?

Hi,

   There are a couple of sequential preloaders out there on the web - I 
think greensock did on, but not 100% sure.


   It's possible that you can use these preload a list of movie clips in 
the background.  I wrote my own before finding queuing loader before 
seeing the others, so I don't know if they implement the same 
functionality: to interrupt the preloading queue when a specific level 
is requested and put the loading of that to the front of the queue.  If 
you are not stopping the things caching in the browser, you might take a 
small hit re-loading the required level if it has not reloaded, but that 
is all.


   HTH a bit

Hey,

Tried to use a UILoader to check the bytes loaded of a single

Has anyone got a suggestion to check the loaded bytes of an mc?

Thought the LoaderInfo only reffers to the mc's owner.

Goal is to preload each game level seperately when it is needed.(if it 
hasn't loaded while playing the previous level yet).


With kind regards,

Sorry, it's a SWF preloader.  As for preloading clips in the library, 
that's not what it's for..
