We have made a mouse macro that clicks on the shockwave movie and we have found out the following.
Each test have been performed in intervals of about 20 seconds and repeated one hundred times. After each test we cleared the cashe and reloaded the site containing the movie. Each test contains from 1000 to 10000 clicks.
Without moving the mouse and just click at one place repeatedly does NOT freeze the movie.
Clicking and holding the mouse and move it will freeze the movie in about 10% of the tests within the 20 seconds.
Keyboard input will not freeze the movie.
Using mousePressed() or _mouse.mouseDown instead of on mouseDown gives the same result as on mouseDown.
Without having any on MouseDown/on mouseUp/_mouse.mouseUP/down/ if mousePressed handlers in the movie gives the same result as using any of them. That means that only clicking repeatedly and moving the mouse on any shockwave movie will freeze it weather it uses the mouse or not.
I will come back when we have found out exactly whats creating the error and a spimple way torecreate the bug.
If someone wants to contact me for more information or mouse macro examples please mail me at "nisse [at] raketspel [dot] se"
now we have found it. if you turn off HyperThreading in BIOS it will not freeze ever.
We ran 6700 test a couple of days ago with our macro. None froze.
that explains why older computers never freezes (cos HyperThreading is only a comple of years old technology)
