Subject: FLASH: Mac memory req...help!
From: Rick O'Shea

Firstly, thankyou to Steve & Laura for your help!

Next question:

Could a mac user please fill me in on the details of "Memory Requirements".
I have a Flash presentation that goes for about 25 minutes and comprises of
12 separate swf files that load and unload when required. This was all built
on a PC and is required to be cross platform. These swf files range from
500k to 2.2mb. I have got two Projector files, so that the presentation will
play on both a PC and MAC. This all works fine now. I had trouble with
getting some of the larger swf files to play an a Mac until I was advised of
the "Memory" tab when in the Mac projector file. (Apple key + I, when the
Mac projector file is selected.)

I changed the default settings of Min Size: 2000 and Preferred Size: 4000.
To 2000 and 7000 respectively. Now all of the swf files play as they should
and everything works perfectly. I just want to know what these settings are
and what they do. Are the settings of 2000 and 7000 correct or will I
overload some machines? Please help.

Also, as a am a Mac Newbie, crossing over from the land of Windows, can
someone clarify...what is Virtual Memory & what does it do??
