To create a loading scene, you need to create a seperate scene which will load the movie.

To do this create a scene in the bigining.

Create four blank frames in this scene.

Label the first frame as startmovie
Label the second movie as ifframeloaded
Label the fourth frame as start movie.

Then give the action to these frames as below

In the second frame give the action
If Frame Is Loaded (last scene, lastframe)
End Frame Loaded
Go to and Play ("startmovie")

In the third frame give this action
Go to and Stop ("startframe")

In the fourth frame give this action
Go to and Play (Scene 2, 1)

Where your Scene 2 is to be replace by which ever scene is going to preceed.

Now create another layer and add the loading movie clip in this layer.

That's all you need to create a preloader

no man not expecting this,i have made a preloader somewhat similar to this.while online testing process i see that there is a time delay of 15 secs to see the loading status itself.
*by default do the flash run immediately as the first frame downloads?or do i have to make any settings.(thats not working that way)
even without the preloader i see my org movie in 15-20 secs itself.

You need to understand the preloader functioning in detail.

By default the flash movie starts playing as soon as the first frame is loaded. So if you don't give a preloader then you will see the movie with jerks. So the practice is to create a preloader.

Another thing that you need to take care while making a preloader is that do not put heavy graphics in the preloader movie otherwise your preloader will also take some time to load, which i feel is the problem in your case.

So remove any heavy graphics from your preloader movie clip and make it light so that it appears as soon as the user types in the URl.

IF this also doesn't solve the problem then i would appreciate if you could either allow me to see your .fla file or describe in detail with the actions you have assigned to the frame that load your movie.

i again saw your site but could not understand how have you made the preloader.
You dont seem to have used proper preloader action script, thats why its not working.

Can you send me your .fla or describe here in detail what actions you have used to create this preloader.

I think i can see what must be wrong but i need to have some more details from you regarding this.

Normally the movie should immediately start playing once the preloader has finished loading the movie.

that's where the problem is, the preloader should not be a seperate movie. It has to be a first scene of your main movie.

Do it that way and if you still have problem then send me an .fla
