How to make Loading Screen?

For questions about using Classic.

Post » Fri Aug 22, 2008 3:20 am

I have this scene that is pretty big, and takes forever to load. I thought it would be cool to have a loading screen, but I am at loss at how to do this. I guess it would have to load a bunch of stuff, while displaying a progress bar or something. Thanks! :mrgreen:

If you mean it takes a long time to set up the layout, but is still running at a good framerate, then you could just make your own bar with the length tied to number of objects.

Could still do this with a poor framerate, but it will be very jumpy hehe. Perhaps a simple "Now Loading" would suffice.

There's currently no way to make an animated progress screen - what you can do is have a layout just before it which says "Loading" on it and straight away goes to the next layout. While the next layout is loading, it'll be frozen on the last image displayed, which will be the loading layout.

Out of curiosity, how big is your .cap file?
