i'm busy trying to rework and old AS2 file to optimise for loading for web.
i stripped it down to check what's going on.
i have a whole bunch of symbols that are made up of high res images - client does not want to sacrifice image quality for speed, anyway, although the publish settings are set to export in frame 2, as soon as i add those symbols to the library, my first frame in bandwidth profiler goes up from 200 odd kB to 2MB.
It's currently taking to long to process frame 0 so to speak to display any kind of sensible loading message.
I'm hoping someone has some tricks that work to share.
have a look at the attached file. see how while i'm exporting the images in frame 2. check it out in the bandwidth profiler. size.fla
