i was searching the internet and i found no help so i thought
i would come here and ask "How do you make a flash chat room?". I
have no idea where to start so anything and everything would be a
great help, i would like to have a log in so it would be able to
remeber people as well (because i would like to in time make this
into a online game but first i thought it would be sensible to
start of with something a little bit more simple).
First of all Flash could only create a front end for it on
Flash would require some server side software to enable 2 way
conversation. Think of the Flash plugin as only being able to
request files from a server. It can't have information pushed to it
unless the server has software to do so. Now Macromedia has their
own server side software to do that sort of thing but you'll pay
through the nose for it. It used to be called the Flash
Communications Server, although I think they've renamed it, it's
essentially the same thing.
Now some people out there have come up with ways to do it
using free software like PHP with some extra goodies installed.
Given the number of people building Chat rooms in flash,
which is very few, I can't see too many people giving their aquired
knowledge away but your best luck is a Google search. Try
kirupa.com, actionscript.org or flashkit.com but I doubt they have
the complexity to help you with this one.
It's a long road and if you don't have experience with server
scripting it'll be a very steep one.
