    Static text is anti-aliased by Flash, whereas dynamic and input fields are not. Anti-aliasing blurs the edges of the font, making the edges smoother. For some fonts this works very well, but for many...

    It sounds to me like the preloader is somehow taking up a pretty large percentage of the whole swf. If it is, there's not much you can do except trim the code and simplify the preloader.

    You can just call to the root. In this case, I would just put a code bit on the last frame of 'who':

    _root.whoplaceholder.loadMovie("next.swf");

    I think that should do what you want.

    No, it's still good. Use your AS dictionary.

    Why do it that way? Why not just put "on (release) {getURL(blahblah);}" on the button itself?

    and, regarding your signature: what actually signifies "need" of a gun?

    on main timeline:

    Obviously, set your own frame label.

    Use a frame loop with a counter to check for the final state. Increment the scale by a few percent every iteration.
    Stop the loop when you've reached 50.
