    Message Window in Projector

    Level 7
      I remember there used to be a setting where you could make a Message Window
      open up in a Projector, by dragging any file onto your .exe in order to run
      it instead of double-clicking the normal way. Obviously, this was a bug,
      and it's since been fixed, but damned if it wasn't useful for debugging
      errors that appear only in a Projector and not in Authoring mode. Does
      anybody know if there's a method in the current version to do this? Maybe
      via some .ini tweak or something? Better still, getting the Object
      Inspector to appear for a Projector would be even more handy...

          It's done in Lingo these days.

          on startMovie
          the debugPlaybackEnabled = 1
          end

            Darrel,

            You should do a search first before posting. I asked this same question
            (and answered it) on 1/3/8
