    Loading many external SWF's and images over a single HTTP connection

    rturknett
      Hello all,

      I am currently working on a fairly complex AS2 project where I am loading 100-200 external SWF's and images, each with a separate call to MovieClipLoader.loadClip()

      For a number of reasons, I would like to package these assets into one file that could be loaded over a single HTTP connection. Unfortunately, AS2 does not support ZIP archives, so I am looking for some clever way to do this.

      My current plan is to package all the assets in a single SWF, and load that SWF into my movie. My question is this: Is it possible to reference items in the library of an external SWF loaded using loadMovie or loadClip? So far I can't find a way to do this.

      How have others solved this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks,
      Rob
