After some critical updates that Adobe was touting last month, I updated my flash player and it hasn't worked properly since. When I hit debug in Flex 3 the IDE opens up my browser and I get tons of garbage spewing out into my output window, like so:
4119 AVMINF: MTHD ReferenceError () @ 0x039384B3
4121 AVMINF: MTHD Error () @ 0x039382B4
4123 AVMINF: MTHD Object () @ 0x03938665
4124 AVMINF: MTHD Class/get prototype () @ 0x103B29E0
4126 AVMINF: MTHD Class/get prototype () @ 0x103B29E0
4128 AVMINF: MTHD global$init ()
4129 AVMINF: MTHD game.common::cPoint$cinit ()
4131 AVMINF: MTHD global/flash.net::registerClassAlias () @ 0x103B29E0
4132 AVMINF: MTHD global/flash.net::getClassByAlias () @ 0x103B29E0
4134 AVMINF: MTHD ReferenceError () @ 0x039384B3
4135 AVMINF: MTHD Error () @ 0x039382B4
4137 AVMINF: MTHD Object () @ 0x03938665
It goes on and on and on... sometimes even outputting what looks like assembly. I've tried reverting versions but all I get is unresponsiveness in the browser.
When I run without the debugger, it crashes the browser. This is with both the latest Chrome and the latest Firefox.
Has anyone seen this problem before?
With a bit more digging on the net... I fixed it!
Check this crazy stuff out:
AS3Verbose=1 # Traces detailed information about SWF ByteCode structure and Runtime parsing of the bytecode
In mm.cfg is bad. Turn it off, everything's happy. Some add-in must've turned it on for me.
