    Hello!

    Guys, I made a game and already uploaded the web version. But when it comes to load the game, it just shows a static image from Loading Screen image that I have made.

    It keeps like that until the game starts, maybe?

    So the question is, how do I make it like... Has percentage and loading bar in there, maybe? Just like generic web games.
    Is there any plugins I can use?

    Thanks.

    Do you know that most of those download screens are faked?

    Nothing can tell how much of a single download is completed without downloading that file.
    So eithernyou limit that percentage to a count of files (that results in those loading Screenshot where the percentages jumps) or you need tell the file loader how large a file is to calculate the percentages, and even then the screen itself is mostly fake.

    That said, you can use a preloader Plugin to tell the engine what to load, then use a mathematical counter to display a guessed percentage on your loading screen.

    So basically it is a lot of testing on your side and will slow downloading for the files, just to give the player a guess on where his download is.

    That is why most people don't bother. And if they know that there is a lot to download they just give a static warning that down loading might take a while.

    Alright. Thank you. So I'll just have to give them a static warning then ;). I have been tricked by fake loading for years:kaoangry:
