I have created a Flash site with animations at startup as
well as a preloader.
During delopment, testing works fine (ctrl+Enter or F12).
However, when uploading and testing it from the server, the initial
load of the site shows no animation - no pre-loader or initial
animation. Then, if the browser is refreshed, the site works fine.
I am sure that this is something simple, so I apologize for
the dumb question, but any help would be appreciated.
It sounds like scripting problem. . you are most likely
jumping ahead in the
movie to frames that are not yet loaded. probably a problem
preloader code. After you refresh, the SWF is coming fully
loaded form the
cache, so you don't get the problem.
