  • AS3 Project Problems

    I'm trying to figure out why a Flash project made up of entirely AS3 would work on one computer, but not another. When I copy the entire folder from the project to my computer and test the fla, none of the animation works. All of the external .as files are there and everything. I'm not very familiar with AS3, so I didn't know if I could possibly not have something installed on my computer to make it work.

    Any ideas?

    Does the other machine have a Flash Player installed on it? Is it the latest version??

      Yes besides any additional things he might have installed on it, we have identical Macs with the full Adobe Suite installed.

        Are the linked paths - machine specific or specific to the files?

        computer/my documents/website/myfile.as or links/myfile.as

          I should also note that the .swf saved from his computer works on mine. However, publishing a new one from the .fla on my computer does not. That makes me wonder if I don't have something installed to make it work when it's publishing?

            Missing the activeX script in the file?

              It uses relative paths as far as I know. The only one I see in the .fla uses a relative that links the others (I'm assuming, still figuring it out).

              Where would I find if the activeX script is missing or not?

                Just wanted to let you guys know I finally found the problem. In the Publish Settings > ActionScipt 3 Settngs it was giving a definite path to the other person's computer to access the class files. Whew!

                      A better contest mechanism would be to go out of business.
                      But then again, the clients on those crowdsource sites aren't out bothering the real designers who are looking for real clients who care...

                      As stated in the OP, the job here is apparently a portfolio of skills, not a pretty picture.
                      This is not the right tool for the job, if the relationship is important.

                      What is your end purpose to printing clear sharp text?
                      And what do you mean by augmented? A new printer?
                      And what do you mean by proofing, because you will never find a printer that will proof...
