I've heard of some issues with running a slide show starting on the same frame as the code.
This may not be the case.
I'm a newbie to flash scripting myself.
Just an idea, how about having everything load up from an XML file?
It's an easy way to add and subtract pictures.
Take a look at thishttp://www.webzo.org/tutorials/flash...-slideshow.php
Good luck hope you can get it going.
Thought I'd try to help out, seems if your not a regular around here you just get ignored.
