Would should or could there be performance difference of a flash file between computer and cd?

Mar 20, 2012 3:28 PM

Hi team,

I am working on this cd-rom and have just reached testing stage for part 1 (of 5).  There are lots of interactive activities, video and animations.  For the activities, I dont know if I am just too tired but there seems to be items which are visible on my .swf on my computer that sometimes are visible and sometimes are not visible on the cd-rom, also in testing yesterday there sere some activities that seemed to not be working correctly (Althought they perform fine on the desktop version, on a reset of the cd-rom they then seemed to work.  Is there anything that I need to take into account for the code being read off a CD to make it more bullet proof?  I am stressing out a bit at the Unknown factor- I cannot continue to produce this resource if I cannot guarantee how it will perform in real life?

Any advice?

Cheers

    there may (and probably are) different flash player versions in your browser and the stand-alone player.  otherwise, there should be no significant differences in performance.

    it would be unusual to need preloaders for local files (unless you're using a goto in frame 1 of a movieclip with a large number of frames).

    if there's an objectionable delay, then you're correct:  preloading will definitely help.
