Got a PM from Johnny just a little bit ago, and I thought I'd share an update as to what's going on with the Collab:
Stamper practically had the thing working 2 days ago, then he went to export and all of a sudden all the tweens in every single submission was broken. it's just mind boggling...we're running into issues we've never seen or heard of before. we tried putting all the movieclips in a row, we tried putting them all into scenes, we spent all weekend optimizing alot of peoples files..sometimes reducing them to a 10th of their original size..(just because that person doesnt understand using symbols and movieclips). we're considering loading the swf into the movie like how the bytesize player worked..we were concerned that would sometimes cause issues though. i can practically GUARANTEE we're gonna have this out before friday..so help me god. SO HELP ME GOD. again, sorry to everybody, we're pushing flash harder than ever to hold all these things and we're learning what to do and not to do when we do another collab like this. feel free to pass this along
Hope that helps. Be patient.
Sigh, that just makes me feel guilty, because even though I'm very familiar with Flash, I know next to nothing about the technical aspects of it.
With that said, I feel as if my file could've been MUCH smaller, and I should have made it that way, considering that I just said, "Oh, what the hell?" and threw in enough jokes to fit the 30 second guideline. I know about compressing sound, but I know nothing about differentiating between movie clips and symbols and how to optimize those.
Hope that didn't cause too many problems for Stamper and Jeff. If so, my bad.
