I read a few articals on preload, I tried cuple of different
methods, but the same problem kips not letting it work:
The first 2 frames contains ONLY the preload stuff. the rest
of the movie from frame 3 contains heavy stuff (700 KB).
When I check the movie in the bandwidth profile it shoes me
that the first frame contains all the 700 KB.
What happends is that the preload movie is not working until
all the movie is loaded - and then I dont need it any more...
Did I do anything wrong?
Do you have any symbols with linkage identifiers in the
library? If you assign a linkage identifier and select "Export for
ActionScript" then "Export in first frame" is checked by default.
This means that Flash will load all these symbols before displaying
the first frame.
use uamg's advise and uncheck "export in first frame". also
go to publish settings of flash and click on the button next to
actionscript version - ie, settings and just enter frame 2 or 3 in
the box that pops up = "Export frame for classes". it will then
show less kbs in first frame.
