You will probably need to make significant changes to the program in
order to work on the web. BuddyAPI is not shockwave safe, so it can not
be used in shockwave at all. Any calls to that xtra (or others that you
may be using that are not shockwave safe) will need to be changed to
something that is safe or removed.
By the way, if you are getting errors in authoring mode, then you do not
have all the xtras where they need to be. They need to be in the xtras
folder of Director (the authoring program), not just in a subfolder
under the projector.
First step will be to fix it so that there are no errors in Authoring.
Second step is to remove anything that is not shockwave safe. Then it
how do i know which xtras are safe for shockwave and which are not? in the xtras folder there is: budapi,cursorassest,cursoroptions, filelo, font asset dialog, font asset, font extra, ineturl, muidialog, netfile, netlingo, printomatic, qt6asset, qtauth, qtexport, textasset, textauth,textextra,txtcrnch
Most of the xtras that come with Director are fine. Third party xtras
all have this information in the documention that comes with them. From
your list, BuddyAPI and FileIO are the only ones that I think you will
have trouble with. You most likely do not need qtauth since it is
Due to the nature of web browsers and shockwave, you can not include an
external xtras folder. You must set them to download automatically. To
do that, go to Modify, Movie, Xtras. Each xtra that is there needs to
have the checkbox ticked for "Download if needed". If it is greyed out,
then it is possible that the xtra is not shockwave safe, or that you
have not setup Director correctly. Read the docs about Packaging Movies
for Distribution. That explains it all.
thank you so much
