    Excellent! Great potential too!

    I waited, then I clicked for the next scene - nada.

    You should make more scenes in the file and have a button click to continue. Or even have the scene open with a wipe, have the pig dig and then pop up the text.

    Can't wait to see more. Good job.

    You should export it in Flash 5 format because some people dont have Flash Player 6.

    Very Nice. You should add something 'easter egg'ish. Something
    hard to see, but once someone points it out, it is easy to find. Like
    a tiny UFO flying through the background. :p :D

    Yeah, that's another good one, put a hidden button somewhere that when you mouse over it does an animation of somthing. Simple, but adds some nice interactivity.

    Those are cool ideas. Ok now what people don't have Flash 5, well Flash 6 has more features so if I export it into Flash 5 I might lose feature. Well I guess I'll have a Flash 5 and a Flash 6 version, well upon request. So if anyone needs a Flash 5 or lower version e-mail me and I'll send it to you. OK? Well I am thinking of something for the second issue/episode/comic whatever you want to call it. I'll ad an easter egg to. And away I go! lol

    You can't "lose features".
    Those vector graphics would export fine as Flash 4, and you could export them like that too..
    Some people are lazy to uprade to Flash 6 Player (not me, i'm up to date :D) because not everyone are such geeks or dont care about flash.

    Separate Flash 5 and 6? That has to be stupidest thing I ever heard in my life, you cannot lose anything by exporting it as Flash 4 or 5 and few more people will be able to view it.
    Look, you export it as Flash 6 only if you use those new ActionScript code thats added in MX version or components which you clearly dont use.
    Not trying to be mean, just dont talk such nonsense anymore ;)

    By the way, you could get some inspiration from the Joy of Tech comics.
