Differences in html5 from SL2 to SL3

I'm currently testing Storyline 3 and have a question:

When I run a Storyline 2 course in html5, it seems to me that a slide is "paused" until all the content is loaded.

In storyline 3 when running html5, it appears that a slide starts immediately and loads the content while running, resulting in some content not appearing until a few seconds into the slide.

Can you confirm whether this is true? Is there a setting that can be changed to make sure all content is loaded before the slide starts?

Hello Martin!

That's a great question. Content is preloaded in the same way in both Storyline 2 and Storyline 3. However, when we designed Storyline 3, we rebuilt our HTML5 engine from the ground up to take advantage of the latest web technologies, so you may see some differences in behavior.

If the delay is enough to cause syncing issues, I'd want to take a closer look at your Storyline 3 file. Would you mind attaching the unpublished .story file here?
