are you using components? make sure you didn't miss any of the export in first frame.
I have used a combo box and button components but have definitely unchecked the export in first frame option.
There is also a video play back in there but the linkage property is grayed out. Any way as far as I am aware this is not stirctly a component and even so would not be a couple of hundred kb right?
Its very strange, I did think it may have something to do with the audio I am using but this is imported from an external source using the loadSound method on frame 3. Its getting to the point where I have totally run out of ideas, so thanks for any suggestions even if they just get me thinking along a different line.
components are all set to export in first frame. Yes, you are correct, that it probably won't be a couple hundred kilobytes, probably around a hundred or so. Post your Size report.
I just tested this using CS3. I dragged a FLVPlayback to frame 4. Set its property in the library not to export. ANd set the publish settings for classes to export to frame 3.
Nothing else just the FLVPlayback. Size report showed frame 3 got 35.5K when publishing as2/ versions 8 or 9. But it did require both the publish settings and the removal of export checkbox in the library.
Still not sure what is causing flash to give me a first frame size of 577kb, but I just uploaded it to a live server and it works fine. The perloader kicks in almost straght away and we're not on a particularly fast connection.
Seems like flash was fibbin. Not sure how/why it would but the swf loaded alot faster than a 577kb file usually would on our connection, so although its not Fixed, it works OK so i'm not goin to waste any more time tryin to fix it.
Thanks to all for your help any way.
