    I noticed some bb games have the loading screen with a live percentage of the load. How is this done? On some older devices the loading is taking a while so I do't want a possible rejection due to that. It would be nice to have the loading data there.

    1. Go to Start screen
    2. Add a Label to Start screen
    3. Change the Action dropdown menu to Loading Counter

    I think the game gets rejected when the loading time is longer than 15 seconds. So nothing changes with the percentage appearing.

    To add the percentage you just have to add a text label and chose in the action field: Loading Counter. If you want to appear the word loading... you can do it with a graphic or another simple text label.

    Start UI does not support animations at this time, these just become the launch images. I suppose it's possible to create a second UI that displays immediately after that could contain some animation. Though the screen would remain static (aside from the load counter) through the game loading.

    I wondered how this was done for so long.. this is so simple, just not intuitive. I always thought this should be a property of the loading bar. So glad you guys posted this!
