Is there some reason you don't communicate with the php script directly from
the Director movie?
Mostly because I already had all the flash to php communication already programmed before I changed some ideas and started using director with the project. I *could* change it so Director communicates with php however then I still have to send all the information collected back to flash because director doesn't need any of it. Only flash needs to know the variables.
Basically, when flash is finished its job and tells director it is finished, director takes a screenshot of the flash sprite and uses that as a texture on a 3D model. So it really doesn't need to know the variables flash collects from php. These variables just tell the flash movieclips to either be hidden or visible to dynamically create different textures. I do this with flash because the movieclips are vectors so they are easier to work with and since there are so many of them the file size is much smaller than if I were to use bitmaps.
Its just easier for me to program the communication with flash but for the life of me I can't figure out why the browser published version of the director movie doesn't work. If I have no choice I will rewrite it but I'd prefer not too.
Is it possible the Flash Asset Xtra doesn't support the LoadVariablesNum function?
