Hi 2Nerotik,

Timing, A GoTo action using a frame number (instead of a Label) will go
to last frame loaded at the moment a button is pressed if that frame
does not exist or has not loaded yet. A moment earlier or later can make
a big difference. The same problem will occur with forward looking frame
actions. Loading speed can be a major factor in who is affected
adversely and who is not.

The key to knowing if this is a likely cause of your problem is if the
file works normally on your hard drive and after being reloaded when in
cache on the server.
