My game needs to load a few TexturePacks, such as
packA = TexturePack.new("virusA/virusA.txt", "virusA/virusA.png",true)
and it can take up to about ~30 seconds on slower phones, so I want to add a "loading..." splash screen to appear during this time.
I tried the most obvious, adding a stage:addChild( bitmap ) before loading the packs, but it does not appear, i.e. the screen is black for 30 seconds and then the game starts.
Please suggest, how do I show a splash screen? Thanks.
