1) Script Title: MultiFrame Image slideshow

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/multiframeslide.htm

3) Describe problem: Not really a problem, it's a good script.

I'm wondering if there's a way to preload the next one or two images. I want to cut down the "jump" through the first two cycles (I'm only using two image displays). The "random" aspect is not relevent, they are loading sequentially.

I don't want to preload all images (at this point there are thirty) if I don't have to for obvious reasons, but the upcoming two or so would be wonderful.

Any ideas? Thanks

Medford Tim

Well, that can get complicated. An easier to execute and, if you think about it, probably just as effective method would be to preload the images you need for the first two or three cycles as the page loads. Then preload the rest onload.
