Hello Carl and eveybody ...

but unfortunately I faced a big problem :

problem 1 :

as I want to load huge and multiple swfs one after another I should be aware of memory that loaded swfs take ,so I tried to unload last swf when new swf is loading but each time I failed ...


problem 2 : how can I fade in each swf that is loading using loadeMax ?


please somebody tell me am I such stupid or it's hard to ...

can you help ?

Wow. That's a demo I made 5 years ago.


We really don't support our Flash tools much anymore unless you find a bug.

to fade in the swfs you would just create a TweenLite tween on the content of the loader instead of just setting its visibile to true.


To unload() the previous swf is a little more involved but this should work:


import com.greensock.*;
import com.greensock.loading.*;
import com.greensock.events.LoaderEvent;
import flash.display.MovieClip;
import flash.events.Event;
import flash.events.MouseEvent;

progress_mc.scaleX = 0;

var loaderIndex:Number = -1;
var currentLoader:SWFLoader;

var swfs:LoaderMax = new LoaderMax({onComplete:completeHandler,onProgress:progressHandler,onChildComplete:childCompleteHandler});

swfs.append(new SWFLoader("part1.swf", {container:container_mc, autoPlay:false}));
swfs.append(new SWFLoader("part2.swf", {container:container_mc, autoPlay:false}));
swfs.append(new SWFLoader("part3.swf", {container:container_mc, autoPlay:false}));
swfs.append(new SWFLoader("part4.swf", {container:container_mc, autoPlay:false}));

function progressHandler(e:LoaderEvent):void {
progress_mc.scaleX = e.target.progress;

function childCompleteHandler(e:LoaderEvent):void {
trace(e.target + " loaded");
e.target.content.visible = false;


function completeHandler(e:LoaderEvent):void {
trace("all swfs loaded");

progress_mc.visible = false;

addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, trackSWFPlayback);


function initCurrentLoader() {


if (loaderIndex == swfs.numChildren) {
//reset back to 0 if the last swf has already played
//loaderIndex  =  0;

        //can't show stuff that was unloaded so lets stop 

trace("all done everyone gone");
removeEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, trackSWFPlayback);

} else {
//dynamically reference current loader based on value of loaderIndex

currentLoader = swfs.getChildAt(loaderIndex);

//make the content of the current loader visible

currentLoader.content.visible = true;

    //fade it in 

TweenLite.from(currentLoader.content, 2, {alpha:0});

//tell the current loader's swf to to play



function trackSWFPlayback(e:Event):void {

//detect if the loaded swf is on the last frame

if (currentLoader.rawContent.currentFrame == currentLoader.rawContent.totalFrames) {

trace("swf done");

//hide and stop current swf
currentLoader.content.visible = false;

//unload the swf that just played 
//set up and play the next swf



load_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, loadSWFs)

function loadSWFs(e:MouseEvent):void{
load_btn.visible = false;

So that code will play through a swf, unload it, fade in the next one. When all swfs are done playing the whole things stops.


Hopefully that helps. Unfortunately that's about all I can do.
