Hello Wheels,

For some strange reason flash loads everything before even showing the loading bar. I have checked that there are no movieclips set on 'export on first frame'.

But I got it working. I inserted an emtpy frame before all other frames and moved the preloader to frame number one. Now it works.

good luck and greetz,
