What you might want to try is called a fast load projector. This is the
projector with the plugins loaded and then on frame one you say open
"content.dxr". you create this file by protecting your dir file and it turns
it into a dxr file. MAKE SURE YOU BACK UP YOUR ORGINAL THOUGH.
this should not only make your app lunch almost instantly you wont have the
loading issues. Unless you are puting rediculously huge image files on the
stage. if you are size your images for the resolution and size that you intend
on displaying them, not in director but in photoshop. i suggest if you are
going to have the same image in different sizes then import it at the different
sizes you intend on using it. The resizing looks like crap in director.
hope that helps.
