Loading multiple files with AssetLoader and acessing json file


Recommended Posts

Hi all 


I am using the AssetLoader to load in multiple files which includes the json file. My question is how do i access the json data? This is because i want to use it to make an animation/spritesheet/movieclip.


Here is an example code:


var assetsLoader = ["star.json","star.png","bg.png"];
loader = new PIXI.AssetLoader(assetsLoader );
loader.onComplete = onAssetsLoadComplete;
When I tried this code to add an animation:
var star= new PIXI.Spine("star.json");
I get this error message:
Spine data must be preloaded using PIXI.SpineLoader or PIXI.AssetLoader:star.json
I am not sure what is wrong there, so i gave up and thought and try adding a movie clip animation using the movieclip example from http://www.goodboydigital.com/pixijs/examples/3/.
For you to get the frames you have to do a loop like this:
for (var i = 0; i < 26; i ++){
          var texture = PIXI.Texture.fromFrame("Explosion_Sequence_A " + (i+1) + ".png");
Because i want to use the json to loop around and add the frame name: (example)
var jsonData = star.json
for(var i =0; i < jsonData.length; i ++){
         var texture = PIXI.Texture.fromFrame(jsonData.frameName + ".png");
Any help would be great Thank you. p.s  I am using ShoeBox and not texture packer to create my spritesheet not sure if that has anything to do with the spine problem.

Hi Enpu,


Thank you for responding. I have tried that and it gave me the same result:

Spine data must be preloaded using PIXI.SpineLoader or PIXI.AssetLoader:star.anim.


So I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I wonder if PIXI have a getJSON function in the assetLoader. It would actually be nice to have a getJson or getXml function.
