don't put any code on frame 1 and you swf will start to play as soon as frame 1 completely loads.
ok, I moved everythign to frame 2, so frame 1 has a blank keyframe on all my layers. No code or assets.
I then set the publish settings to export on frame 6 (after the preloader prog bar and such)
problem is the embedded fonts are still set to export on frame 1 (while all the other classes are now frame 6 as set by the publish settings)
I can uncheck the export in frame 1, but then none of the embedded fonts show up.
is there a way around that?
Figured it out after reading a little more and searching...
I unchecked the export on frame 1 for all my embedded fonts, then on frame 6, where the rest of my classes load, I put a text field with that embedded font on the stage, just off screen and not visible forcing the classes to load.
