Master Loader - Accurate Progress

Recommended Posts



I'm using loadermax to all the site assets.


Problem: I don't get accurate progress since I have nested loadermaxs in the loaded swf as well.


Here's the sequence:


1) Load application.swf

2) application.swf has a require with root and loads several other video and sound files


The content won't be changing and I know the exact byte size of the full load. Is there a solution to have more accurate feedback during load?


I see the "estimatedBytes" prop in the docs, but I still get progress bar jumping due to new info coming in. Can I somehow force the master loader to use the estimatedBytes?


Thanks for any help

Have you checked out the LoaderMax "Tips & Tricks" page? Specifically, #9:



You definitely can accomplish what you're asking about. Make sure that when you define the estimatedBytes of your SWFLoader that you include the size of the subloading stuff too. Same for XMLLoaders (if you have any).

Thanks for the response. So I add the estimatedBytes prop but I still get the jump back. Really not sure. I ended up just hardcoding it myself. Using a custom progress value rather than the LoaderMax progress.


Just so I'm clear on where that need to go I want to show you the code:


_applicationLoader = new LoaderMax({ onProgress:onProgressHandler, onComplete:masterOnCompleteHandler});
_applicationLoader.append(new SWFLoader("application.swf", {container:contentContainer, name:"Application", onInit:mainSWFInitHandler, estimatedBytes:6625455}));


And just to note again: application.swf in turn loads video and sound. Has its includeWithRoot set to true. I've also tried placing "estimatedBytes:6625455" in the LoaderMax params
