I'm not quite sure that I should have been able to create an "announcement" on this forum... so just in case I'm not supposed to have been to do that, I'm creating a topic just in case it gets deleted. Here are the details of my "announcement":
So basically today I found some great tutorials + sample projects on how to make Flash CS5 be able to target Flash player 11. But, there was one issue: can't debug/test (publish preview) the swfs inside Flash CS5. So, I spent a few hours today making a pseudo "standalone" flash player debugger exe to replace the one included in the CS5 install, which allows you to publish preview Flash player 11 content inside the IDE. I did this because when you're REALLY developing, not just testing, the workflow of publishing, leaving your IDE, refreshing a web page and testing your content etc just doesn't flow well. Please note that there is no abobe code compiled in my code, the runtime is not included in it, no copyright software is at all. You must already have Flash 11 installed on your machine, and my program/replacement executable simply acts as an interface to the flash player 11 control. Hope this helpful to the community, for more details visit my blog here:
One more follow up, I've released the source code for people who are interested in having a peek at it:
Hi Jesse, I will add my thanks to that of the others posted here. It really helps!
One thing I wanted to note that actually caused some confusion on my part: anyone trying to use this must have the ActiveX version of FP Incubator installed. Otherwise using your excellent Debugger will cause a crash.
It may be obvious to most everyone, but it wasn't to me, so I just wanted to make sure that I mentioned here on the forum.
Thanks again for all the great work! Now I can finally concentrate on playing with Molehill!
I posted a rely to your original thread here:
Either you're not targetting flash 11 in publish settings, didn't copy the latest playerglobal.swc properly or my player isn't set up right. Anyway check out the suggestions I made in that thread and let me know how it goes. Please reply on your original thread though, so that people can see why you had the problem and how to fix it! Thanks!
I have completed seting up the debuger and it works, but I can't load external files, like jpg-es, it seas
Error #2044: Unhandled IOErrorEvent:. text=Error #2036: Load Never Completed.
In the browser it works, it loads the jpg.
