I created a stack with a lot of substacks and NOW decided that I will
need a splash screen before the Main stack loads.
I have two questions:
Q1: Is there a limit or problem with too many substacks in a mainstack?
If so what is a safe number to work with?
Q2: Since I can't have my mainstack with substacks become a substack of
another mainstack I created a new mainstack for the splash screen and
after a timed animation I then open the MAIN mainstack and close the
splash screen stack - remove from memory. Is this a safe way to do
this? Are there any problems or benefits from doing it this way?
Since I decided after all of this work to add the splash screen I
couldn't just make it the mainstack. I was worried about memory issues
and about cross platform issues.
Q3: When Building the standalone how would I deal with these two
stacks? Should they be separate builds? If not How/What should I do
about it. Should I use the "Files for inclusion" in DB? How will that
affect the MAIN mainstack? What about the "Make mainstack" in DB? How
will that affect my MAIN main stack?
