I have a rather large and complex director movie. As I'm going through the final bug fixing stage, making tiny corrections to the code, (changing one line here and there), I have noticed something disturbing. The exe that it creates changes sizes dramatically from one build to the next with NO reason. (not adding any cast members, adding content, etc..) It was around 30MB, then it jumped up to 90+ MB, then it was down to 70MB, now it's back up to 96MB. I need as small an exe as possible but feel I have no control over it's size.
What would cause the published exe to change sizes so dramatically?
When saving, use Save and Compact instead of Save. Also, use a stub projector - then you'll only have to make it once.
Yes, I do use save and compact every single time. It still fluctuates wildly. Any known causes for that?
