Wow... 128 meg FLA file. You ever uncompressed a 128 meg zip file? That's why it's slow as it is. A FLA is somewhat similar to a zip. Try cutting down the number of assets in the library. I have no idea what's in there that would be that big.. probably video. If so export it get it externalized then delete the assets from the library, same with sound try to as well with images if you can. That's about all I can suggest any computer would have a rough time with that just because it's flash. I have a ridiculous i7 machine I can guarantee it would run slow there too. Anyway sorry I don't have a better answer
Yes there is many high quality photos and couple videos as well. I will try to cut it. I just wonder how author put all data inside? Is that poor coded template if you can "maybe" edit it on hi end PC without great slowdowns? Not everyone have hi end PCs to put there little portfolio website with great professional feel that flash can offer. I hope it will work, thanks! Any other ideas? What's the maximum Fla size for comfortable work on medium PC? Or what fla size i should aim for?
Honestly I can't really say for sure what good file sizes are. All I can suggest is to avoid issues like this, try to keep large images (pictures etc) external as well as video and sound. What bogs down the IDE is that, like I said the FLA acts like a zip. So working with the files inside the zip is kind of like constantly compressing/uncompressing all that data. So just try to keep the internal files down to basic user interface elements and try to dynamically load in everything else.
