How the hell have you managed to make it 16mb? That's incredible.

Reconsider your approach. You've obviously got optimization issues. If you've got a large sound file but you're only using 2 seconds of that sound, go and cut the sound up. Optimize bitmaps as well. Worse case scenario, split the project up into 2 8mb swfs and submit it as two parts.

If you've been working on it for a year, then I assume it's very good. I suggest PMing Tom or Wade to allow you to have a bigger upload limit size. Much better than splitting it.

You can try overriding your sound settings, you can find that somewhere in the publish settings.

Here's what you do, copy every frame (right click the timeline- select all frames, and then copy them, copying might take some time. Then open up a new flash doc and paste those frames there, and do that for every scene you have.

It will clean up your library and most likely lower your file size (i know this as its worked for me before)
