Okay, heres the thing. I have created a director project and published it as a shockwave file. I then copied this shockwave file along with all the linked files onto a DVD. However, now, when I insert the DVD into a computer the user still has to locate all the files every time I put it in a computer. I was just wondering if anyone knows how I can make the shockwave file play straight away, as soon as the user puts the DVD into a computer, rather than having to find all the linked files before playing it... HELP??!!!
When you say
... and published it as a shockwave file.
do you mean you created a DCR and an HTML file that embeds it, or did you create a projector?
I published it as a projector
Usually the problem you describe only happens if you move the assets, after publishing the Director movie, to a different relative location. Read the docs for searchPathList and use the prepareMovie handler to add relative folder paths to it. Something like:
on prepareMovie mPath = _movie.path -- assuming you have linked assets in folders named "video" and "images" -- and that these folders are in the same directory as the current movie file _player.searchPathList.append(mPath & "video") _player.searchPathList.append(mPath & "images") end
