Hi ppl.

A colleague of mine is experiencing some wierd problems, he's got hundreds of lines of code (he refuses to rewrite it) -  but it seems that there's a limit to the number of lines of code he can have on a frame, before it goes wonky.

Any one experience something similar?

Is there such a limit?

I've been developing in Flash since version 4 and I have never experienced a problem because of too many line of code in 1 frame.

We came across something similar to that with flash mx 2004 where there is a limit to an as file.  I would assume that is similar to just scripting in a frame.   But as to a problem with "hundreds" of lines of code,  hmmm that sounds fishy.  I had to creat a game written all in one frame published for flash 5 with over 3000 lines of code, and didn't have a problem.  I don't see why hundreds would be.  What version of Flash?  If MX 2004 does he have the 7.2 update (highly recommended).  And if all else failes... I suggest a cut and paste rebuild.  I have had a couple of Fla's go bad for some reason, but that is rare.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

maybe the processor can't handle all the instructions?

i suspect the code isin't great, but he refuses to rewrite it. He's using a number of case statements.
Oh well, you can take a horse to the water and all that!
