When you play your HTM file with the DCR on your local computer , does it play
Could you give us more info on what you mena by 'it doesn't work like it's supposed
to'? Is content not loading? Are you getting errors? Do you see the DCR loading? Is
your project just a single DCR?

Thanks for your reply. Its just so strange because if I play it on my local computer its completely error free just like when I play it inside Director, but when I upload it to my website. It just doesnt function properly, the project I created is for a third grade class. It has a piggbank and coins. There is a speciic value that shows and the students have to insert that value into the piggbank. If it goes over the amount there is a message that is given to the students indicating this.
When its uploaded to the website, this function is completely lost. I need to show this to this class by next week and I have been looking at this code and everyting and cannot find anyting wrong. Its just so fustrating when it works properly.
When it is shown in the website, no error is given, basically I keep putting coins into the piggybank and if it goes over or if the correct amount is inserted nothing happens!! I dont know what to do, any advice will be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks again for replying.
The DCR is loading fine, no errors and yes its only one DCR.
Could you provide the URL for me to check? If there's an issue in making the URL
public, email me at email@example.com
If you'd like, you could also email me the files and I could take a look to se if I
can see anything odd.

You might want to post some of it just so a fresh set of eyes can see if
there's something you missed. Remember that we haven't seen one line of this

It's good that you describe what is expected to happen and what doesn't
happen. But descriptions of the project almost never provide enough
information for other Director users to help. We're all here to learn/help
with Director and Lingo, so it's easier when we use the Director terms that
we have in common.
Still, if your code that checks "If it goes over or if the correct amount is
inserted" [that definitely wasn't Lingo :-) ] is functioning, you might want
to check the code that is supposed to make "a message" appear.
What, in Director terms, is this message? #text member? #field member? Alert?
Can you show a snippet of the code that presents this message?
What have you done so far to troubleshoot the problem?
Have you tried a simple test movie that performs that action?
Have you done any debugging? This is harder in SW, but you can still sprinkle
alerts in the code or add a field member and fill it with values in
variables, results from functions, etc.
There are other means for debugging SW including bringing up a Message
Window, but let's start with some of the basics.
