    Monoply like game with Director?

    p0o9
      Would Director be a good game development environment to develop a monopoly like game? Does Director work with InDesign and CS2. Is Flash mandatory for online type games? Does Director allow for sound?

      We had looked at the linux based app, Atlantik, but it doesn't appear to be sophisticated enough and want to know from other developers their thoughts.

          Yes.

          Your question doesn't make much sense. InDesign is a print layout
          application so I wouldn't really expect it to integrate too closely with
          a multimedia development application. What were you expecting the
          integration to do for you?
          And CS2 is an application suite. Some of those applications can or will
          work with Director, but some are completely unrelated.

          No.

          > Does Director allow for sound?

          Yes.

            Why InDesign? because the game is fully developed as print media. We wanted to bring design elements to save time and support continuity, if possible.

            We hoped to bring in designing the board & Game Cards & Photoshop elements if possible. We wanted to affirm any cross program associations.

            Does Director support animation with sound simultaneously?

              If you save relevant bitmaps you can import them into Director's cast
              library

              > Does Director support animation with sound simultaneously?

              Yes, perhaps you should try it for yourself.
