so then are you using an empty swf to load your main swf for each site?
why not just create a generic base class that always checks for the
ExpressInstall vars, and if it doesn't find them, then it starts up your
that way you don't have to worry about loading movies and whatnot...
i guess i'm just not a fan of always using a 'loader' swf for each movie
(i created flashobject in part to get away from having to do that with
the Flash Satay method), but i suppose it could work out ok if it's
packaged up in a nice way.
