If you've decided that the existing Director artwork can be made smaller by
redoing those pixel-based maps to vector art, then you can use those new
Flash assets within Director itself. This gives you the hi-fi audio
streaming and interactive control.

(The Flash Asset Xtra has been bundled with the default Director/Shockwave
download for the last half year. There's also a technote page for the
standalone Xtra's installation, if your audience last updated their browser
in late '97.)
