1. Use a 'mother' swf to load your movie.
2. If you need to have one file:
Create a layer 'assets'. Create a keyframe - for instance on frame 5. Drag all assets that have a linkage identifier from the library to the stage on that frame/layer. Now create a keyframe in one of your other (existing) layers - for instance on frame 10 and set a label 'start'. Instruct the preloader to go to frame 10 when loading is done.
Or don't use attachMovie(). Instead put the clips in your timeline and use duplicateMovieClip();
Not as elegant or maybe…
i've considered using the "mother" movie before... just wanted it to be compiled as one movie this time, but I was unsure wether it's my mistake or else...
so this means that's a defect of flash and that there's no 'straight' solution?
2 LuigiL: I liked your second solution... a tricky move )
Well defect if you mean, "That is the way it is."
I come from the world of print design. When you are dealing with paper it always has two sides and if you fold it then there are suddenly 4 pages. Not really a defect, It is just the way it is. You design for it and do what you can.
You want things in the first frame they will be there. If you don't then they won't.
