    Hi,
    I'm not very experienced in flash, but have a lot of fun with Flash MX for win XP. I've been making a slide show with a lot of 1024*728 jpegs and some animated text. Everything is pretty basic and just running along the timeline. It seemed to work pretty well, but now that I'm finished, the result is a really large file and my computer tends to hang up (the program that runs the swf is shut down by Windows) in the middle of my presentation. I've been considering trying to divide it into several swfs or something to ease the demands on my computer. A simple slideshow shouldn't be that much of a problem for a 1,5 GHz as I consider it. Why doesn't it work and what should I do?

    I would appreciate quick help, as the deadline for my little project is closing in :-)

    well just load in the slides as you need them (jpg's or swf's)..

    make a new array , fill the array

    ->then make a load function and put it in root

    -> put on you're buttons to increase or decrease

    Code:
    slideArray= new Array();
    
    slideArray[0] = "image1.jpg"
    slideArray[1] = "image1.jpg"
    slideArray[2] = "image1.jpg"
    
    // function in _root
    
    container = null;
    num = 0;
    
    function loadSlideNum(){
    // if num is larger/ smaller as the array num!
    
    if(num > slideArray.length) num = 0;
    else if(num<0) num = slideArray.length;
    
    if(container==null) createEmptyMovieClip ("container", 1)
      container.loadMovie(slideArray[num]) 
    }

    on the button + & -


    Code:
    on (release) {
    num = num+1
    _root.loadSlideNum()
    }
    
    on (release) {
    num = num-1
    _root.loadSlideNum()
    }
    Okeey this would fairly do the job .. goodluck !!

    Smile Thank you - I made it

    Thanks for your help, nyls! I guess this script would do the trick, I've saved it for future reference... This time, however, interactivity was only barely included in the file (start/stop movie), so I just dropped it and exported it as a .mov file and got a nice and stable thing. Pretty unorthodox and not compatible with the intentions of the flash format, but good enough for me, though

    Have a nice time,
