Hi there I am new to Director. I am having a strange problem
which I wish I can solve soon because I've been stopped because of
these for some days.
I have a sprite in which behaviour's sprite says something
like: sprite("logo").loch = x; and x is a variable that is being
modified so this image moves.. Now, when I comment this line and
recompile (in both cases with the thunder button and also with the
control -> recompile all scripts) I then rewind the movie and
click on play but it seems to ignore the modification because
nothing happens, it runs as if it was uncommented. The only thing I
can do to update it is to close Director and reopen it and then the
movie gets updated. But then same thing happens if I uncomment the
line, it doesn't get updated until I close the program and rerun
This happened in two different projects I have tried as first
tests. The other thing that happens similiar to this is that once
the compiler complains of an error, and after I correct it, it
continues complaining that the script is wrong and I have to rerun
Last, I am running Director MX trial mode downloaded from
Adobe's site. I have also tried my project in a new computer and
the same thing happens... The only thing I can think of is that I
have created damaged files from my computer in both project.. or
that there is some option I am missing, but even in that case it is
hard to believe that there should be an option such as 'don't
require to rerun director to update things' .. Well, I hope you can
help me because I have already ran out of ideas.
I've seen that behaviour also - not often, but anyway.
I do not see the logic, but for me it can happen when using
scripting xtras and changing a few lines for those.
I solve it by:
- saving to a new name (which I do often)
- using save and compact
- using recompile all scripts (shift - F8). Possibly all
recompiled when compacting - but just to be sure.
I do not have to restart director.
