Use Frames...... With OSC/osCMax (which does NOT use frames) -every link goes to a "new" or a "refresshed" page - thus it reloads the flash......

With the template structure of osCMax - create a new template with a header with all your flash and static links needed (like buttons for "cart" "checkout" etc...) but remember when clicking on these to LOAD in the below frame. Put every thing ELSE into a frame below....

Or use the HARD CODED links options......

That is why MANY sites have a fancy FLASH intro but then only use limited flash in there main site.

Good Luck

Another option is to make a template for your main page, and a separate template for all other pages...

Say, have main_page.tpl.php used for the top page of your catalog, that loads the flash, then have main_page2.tpl.php used for all other pages in your site, and it loads a static image instead. Should be pretty easy to implement...
