  • maximum flash movies inside a skin

    there seems to be a problem in RR regarding the number of flash objects loaded in the skin.
    I am trying to add 4-5 flash swf's in mostly all the .skins in a skin, the thing is that in some .skins the flash won't update, seems like RR is not updating the labels..and/or the swf's appear frozen or won't even appear, it happens like in 2-3 out of 15-20 .skins.. and on a restart it might happen to another .skin, not always the same..
    I have tried changing the swf's with other swf's but that did not help..
    The flash objects are not intensive at all.. they are realy just for displaying some labels indicators etc.

    i tried older RR versions back to January, but all behave the same
    it seems 3 swf's in a .skin is the maximum number without any problems

    keep in my rr doesnt draw or run the flash, thats all handled by adobe... so it could be issue with 1, your .swfs or flash itself
    there is no limit to swfs put in by RR
    and once rr sets the movie name to the object, RR is basically done with it

      I have seen much the same in one of my skins, too. Not nearly as often on the "non-appearing," but the freezing of RR happens to me about the same regularity as you stated. I assume (there's that danger word) that it has to do with my video driver/memory. Could also be my CPU (1.2G Dual Core), but I don't think so - CPU usually hovers at 54%.

      I have also found that the order that they load makes a difference. Labels that feed flash object need to be early in the .skin. Flash that reads internet info should be last; graphic intensive should be next to last; and ones with the least updates go first.

      I don't know of a limit to the amount if flash RR can handle. I currently have 9 flash objects in this skin:


      As a last ditch effort, you may want to spread them out in the skin file so they don't all load at the same time, i.e., flash/buttons/flash/labels/flash/lists/flash/buttons/flash/images/etc, etc, etc. Lastly, how many plugins are you running and is the flash object dependent on them? That may also have an effect on whether a flash loads.

              there is a possible total flash limit, but I'm still not 100% sure, its about 30 movies, without further testing i cant say for sure
              this isn't a RR limitation, its just a flash activex limitation.. but I'm still not 100% convinced

              and as blue said, i keep updated as adobe pushes them on me, and find no issues, it just gets better with their hw accelleration on h264 videos
              (non rr stuff, but sill important to me)

                      or keep the number of flash OBJECTS on a single skin file < say 15
                      then discard the skin

                      /DISCARDABLE
                      If the above is found in a .skin file, RR will unload that skin file once you navigate away from it.
                      This can be useful to keep memory clean and to force reloading of objects of a screen.

                        thank you for this tip.

                        it's difficult to unload the screen, because it needs a moment to load again.
                        but it's a workaround.

                        edit:
                        did a test now and think -> OK. at this time.
