I created a game in Director, and I used multiple movies (for the different "levels" of the game) and then linked them together. When I play the game on my computer, the files "talk" to each other just fine and the game works; when I upload it to the server (and I did upload all the files), the linked movies don't work - I get an error that says "unable to open file".
Here's the main/home screen of the game: http://mer539.aisites.com/imd232/double.html (despite the fact that it's called "double", that's not the "double" level).
It's supposed to be a four-level game (single, double, triple, home run) plus the "how to" file. From that main screen, the "single" level works, because it is part of the same file as the home screen, but none of the other levels or the "how to play" link work
Can anyone help?
If the different movies are on the server, you would need to use gotoNetMovie() to jump to another movie as opposed to "go movie" that you would use for local files.
Alternately, you can download the other movies locally using downloadNetThing() before you need them. Once the movies have been downloaded, then you can use the same old "go movie" commands that you are used to.
Thanks! I'll try that!
Sorry to be such a dummy, but what is the exact code I need to apply to my button for the "gotonetmovie"? Right now, the buttons are just using the built-in "jump to movie" behavior.
