    I load variables from text files, but it's probably similar.

    Thanks,

    I thought it was a timing issue, but I suspected Flash, rather than the download time to the PC.

    I'll delay it - thanks for the advice!

    Hi guys,

    My site uses variables loaded from a text file, which works fine, but it produces odd results on the first keyframe.

    I came up with another solution, which works but may be a poor way to do it:
