"If you want to include a preloader (a separate SWF file that loads your primary SWF) with your screen-based document, one way to do this is to create the preloader as a separate SWF file (non-screen-based), and load the SWF file for the screen-based document from within the preloader SWF.

You cannot create a preloader within a screen-based document, because all screens in a document are located on the first frame of the root Timeline, so you cannot call or load other frames."

1st Q. what is a non screen based swf?
2nd Q. what is a screen based swf?
3rd Q. where can i possibly get a preloader code that i can modify?
4th Q. how about the code to load the final movie?
5th Q. can someone explain this to me and the step by step process?

HELP PLEASE!! HELP PLEASE!! HELP PLEASE!! HELP PLEASE!! HELP PLEASE!!

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE GUYS

what i would sugest is to have a preloader in each of your seperate SWF files. When your main movie calls your seperate files the preloader will appear first
