As I understand it, flash only allows two pipes for loading external data at a time. Is that true? Also, according to what I was told at Max, flash automatically adds items to a queue when you load more than two things at a time. If that is true, I'm confused because I'm loading an audio file. It starts loading, then I load various gifs right after that. I loop through an array and just start loading all of them. What is strange is even though the audio is started loading first, the other files finish before the audio. I guess if Flash does only open two pipes at a time, it adds items to a stack instead of a queue.
I've also heard that opening more than two pipes at a time hits download performance hard in Flash. What I'm really trying to figure out is, should I handle trying to load only two items at a time for better performance? Or does Flash handle that and I don't need to worry about it?
