We develop e-Learning content using swf files embedded in
DCRs. We have started noticing a problem with the new Shockwave
player 10.1+ in that there is a noticable flicker or white flash
before the swf plays or is told to move on.
Has anyone had a similar problem? Does anyone know a
We are using Director 8.5 and Flash 8.0. files published for
Flash Player 5.0.
Well dont all fall over each other trying to post a possible
Seems that we found the problem. We use shared script
libraries (cst & cct). It appears that there is a line in our
lingo code that sets the flash sprite cast member automatically
direct to stage. Shockwave player 10.1 + does not seem to like this
on standard speed machines and causes a flickering border around
the flash animations, which is really noticable. The line of code
reads as so:
sprite(channelNo).directToStage = true
We simply commented this out and the page functions fine.
Incedently, if I manually set the flash cast member as direct to
stage, we get the same issue, only more exagerated. This must be a
bug in the 10.1+ player as we don't get the issue at all on
machines running the 8.5 player.
