I'm almost ready to publish a game that ive made, but when bandwidth profiling, I noticed that the preloader was taking a very long time to load, considering it was only 4kbs. (see attachment, frame 1 is a black screen that either opens frame 2 (the preloader) if the whole movie isnt already loaded, or frame 3 (intro animation) if the movie is already completely loaded).
Then I realised, ah, all my movieclips and sounds are set to 'export in first frame'... so I found all of the sounds, turned off the setting, and placed them all into a movieclip with a stop action in the timeline, and put it in the third frame of the movie.
I also placed all the 'first frame' exporting movie clips, and placed them off the stage in frame 3... so that flash realises that all of the data is requested in frame three. (also can be seen in the attachment).
After this, I thought my problems would be over. But when I opened the movie and did a download test, the second frame preloader wont even start until 100kb's are downloaded, even though it is only 4kbs in size.
What else is loading in the first (or prehaps second) frame other then 'export in first frame' sounds and clips?
