    Director 8.5 content in mac OS X

    amnheduser
      I'm not a Director user, so please bear with me. I maintain an interactive kiosk in a children's discovery room. The content for the kiosk was created with Director 8 educational version some 6 years ago and has been running on a G4 tower operating on OS 9.1. The touchscreen blew out, and I can't find a new model which will work with system 9, so I need to find a way to update the existing content to work natively in OS X. Any advice? Can this be done simply in Director MX?

      Thanks,
      Danny

          For most projects, it should work as is. Just open with mx04, update and
          publish. Note that one or two things -like the timeout object syntax- has
          changed since v8. Even if you project includes such objects though, it
          should be a mater of minutes to changed the required lines. Why don't you
          download a trial version and check it yourself?

            Hi amnheduser, dont TrollTouch ( http://www.trolltouch.com/) keep old software? If youve not asked them already try Nick Durso <nick@trolltouch.com> and see. They have supplied my touch screens. But alchemist is correct updating should be really simple. Have a cool yule, r.
