          The .swf that you have is a compiled runtime file that is meant to be played through the Flash Player in a browser. The original file that was used to create the .swf is a Flash .fla file. The .fla can be opened and edited in Flash. The .swf cannot be opened and edited. It is meant to be played only. Do you have access to the original .fla file?


          There are Flash decompilers that can "crack" an .swf. Some are better than others. What you get may or may not be useful to you. If you had no hand in creating the original file, what you get back may be a complete mystery to you. Some parts may be missing and some parts may be poorly or incorrectly translated from the .swf.


          You will have to decide on the ethics of reverse engineering this .swf.
