So I'm not AS2 pro, but I made a slideshow that loads about 15 different SWFs as each slide. Each SWF has a preloader and a "container" blank movie clip at the end which loads the next SWF. On the last SWF I have it reload the first SWF in the root "container". Now I'm not sure if this is the best way of doing this, but to me it sounds like it stacks a bunch of loaded SWFs on top of each other. Will doing something like this effect performance? Is there a better solution? Thanks! :D

Yes that has performance implications. I would suggest an XML file or similar to track the content and the load and unload each slide. It would help if you could post your code but here's a tutorial that should get you on the right track.

I've seen a lot of image slideshow tutorials. I guess I could use swf as well. I also need to make all of the slides the same length then cause right now they aren't

Found on that I could set up a time delay in the XML for each entry. Perfect! Now the first slide there are 2 versions, one with audio which I want to play only once when the user first comes to the page and another version that plays in the loop with no audio. hmmm
