Bugger, but thanks for the info. It's working on all my test machines now,
even when I clear cache. I can't isolate what it might be. Perhaps there's
a bug with Flash3 players playing 2 * Flash2.swf?

First, it must be his computer, both worked fine for me, although it took
quite some time to d/l over my ISDN here in the U.S. Second, WOA! Now
that's the kind of Flash I enjoy! I'm am also thoroughly jealous of your
artistic talents. That was HIGH quality!

OOPS! It worked on NS 4, but never did anything on IE 4. Course, I only
waited about 15 minutes for IE, but it looked pretty dead.

Andrew writes:
first, hmm, same problem in IE4 heh! second, thanks for the compliment.
Chris Duffill, my work partner at Pool.Net is the one with the artistic
talent. He tried to join the list yesterday, but hasn't received any email
so far, so can't join in the discussion yet.

cool little commercial! It all seemed to work well for me on
mac G3, Netscape 4, and 14.4k. A little large and long to DL
considering the the size, length but there were a lot of gradients
and sounds too. Nice draftsmanship. Rotoscoped or freehand?

Andrew writes:
Neither. It was all drawn in Flash by Chris using a Wacom Artpad

I had the same result the first time I visited (mac NN4)
except it crashed my entire system! I just thought that
I had too many apps open (Pshop, Flash3, Illustrator, Navigator 4,
and Fetch) but Colin's post makes me wonder. It crashed just as
the hand dropped the round into the chamber. Second time (after restart)
worked fine.

anyone have _any_ idea why a Flash movie should freeze up on first loading
in IE4?????? I don't!!

Thanks for all your feedback.
