I am working on this cd-rom and have just reached testing stage for part 1 (of 5). There are lots of interactive activities, video and animations. For the activities, I dont know if I am just too tired but there seems to be items which are visible on my .swf on my computer that sometimes are visible and sometimes are not visible on the cd-rom, also in testing yesterday there sere some activities that seemed to not be working correctly (Althought they perform fine on the desktop version, on a reset of the cd-rom they then seemed to work. Is there anything that I need to take into account for the code being read off a CD to make it more bullet proof? I am stressing out a bit at the Unknown factor- I cannot continue to produce this resource if I cannot guarantee how it will perform in real life?
ok so there is defiately no possiblility of code skipping or not being read properly by the cd.. That's good news. Maybe I will just put it down to tiredness and the stress of a testing with lots of poeple putting the resource thorugh its paces. So basically whatever function (or nonfunction) that I saw, could have been the way the user was interacting- but would definately be the same bahaviour as on the authoring machine. (except for speed of course- I will need to make some preloaders before the end I am sure)
I am just noticing that on frames where there are movies that are loaded externally, the movie does not appear for a short time while it loads up, not a big deal, but I thought a preloader might fix it.
