View Full Version : Text File/DB Loading Performance

Anyone know of client performance issues/file locking issues/web server load issues when loading external text data files as opposed to a data base?

The operation is strictly read-only; loading about 60K of text data into Flash variable arrays.

Data is loaded in once while the Flash application is running.

I think all data is loaded once to the client when the frame having load variables is loaded,
since your data is mainly large you should use preloader to check loading the text file,
for exasmple by putting variable s=3 in text file then check for s value when it becomes 3 goto next frame,,,

shouldn't be any problems loading only 60k of data. i've got an app that does it all the time, loading the file is fine, no problems... of course this app is not under any kind of heavy load or anything, but should make too much difference.
