V2 Components large? Use Ariaware Optimizer!

with 4 comments

This is such a cool tool, and the website has gone live just an hour ago. It’s a great Windows-only application, delivered by Aral, Burak, Tolga and Peter to make your lives much, much easier. The 30 second geek elevator pitch version:

It extracts out common classes from your SWF’s, and put them into a RSL that gets linked into your original SWF’s so you only need to preload the RSL instead ( it also comes with a Class Manager class ).

For more marketing material you can throw at management, see below:

Reduce the bandwidth of your Flash web sites and applications!

Ariaware Optimizer is a revolutionary Windows-only tool that can dramatically reduce the size of your Macromedia Flash web sites and applications (RIAs.)

Even if you have an HTML-based web site, you may be able to take advantage of Ariaware Optimizer if your site contains two or more Flash files (SWFs) that use the Version 2 components or share classes.”

  3. Hi Versus. The issue with Mozilla/Firefox actually only affects swf loaded from a local file-system, using the Optimier’s “deploy locally for testing” setting.

    The cause is actually a documented issue with Moz/FF where RSL linkage and loadMovie can fail if there are spaces in the url. The local testing setting adds the complete absolute paths to the shared class files, and you probably have your project in your “My Documents” folder or similar.

    We are updating the documentation to explain this.

    If what you are experiencing is in fact some other issue, please let us know. We aimed to produce a professional quality product, and I think we have managed it.
