    Game in Director

    Aranbarri
      Hello everyone:
      I'm actually on my 3rd year of computer engineering, and I need to make a "want to be a millionaire" kind game, which is a part of the project we must make for the end of the year. The tool they told us to use is Macromedia Director, but as we don't have any idea, and we can't really find a good manual for the kind of job we must make with Director, I come here to ask you if you have some tips, manuals or suggestions for us to, at least, start making something decent =)
      Nothing more, thank you very much for your attention,
      Aran

            Hi Aran,

            A must see learning resource for Director is:
            http://www.deansdirectortutorials.com/
            I'm not just saying that because my name is Dean. :)

            There's also a resouces page with every important Director site and resource
            online:

              Hi Dean,

              Nice consolidated list of sites!

              Not a lot of content yet, but I wonder if adobedirectoronline.com make it on
              that list in the near future? (See yesterday's thread, Subj: Interesting site
              re D11). Could be worth watching.

              To the real reason for my post: I thought you might like to know that you
              still have a link to updatestage.com here
              http://www.deansdirectortutorials.com/resources/#general

              I thought I remembered reading a post from you recently about Gretchen
              discontinuing that site, but I don't recall whether somebody else will be
              picking it up or not.

                Thanks Mark. Good to see you here.

                Well, actually I'm NOT behind in that front. I spoke to the author about the site
                and was suggesting a few things. Hadn't added the link yet but have done so now.

                All new Director sites are great. Hopefully this one will provide good resources
                for the community.

                Thanks for that. I have deleted that link. The full story in brief is:
                * Gretchen managed updatestage.com until early 2007. She then moved on from
                Director work. At that point, after speaking with Gretchen, I got involved with
                updating the Mile High Table.

                * Mark Andrade bought the domain from Gretchen around Feb 2007. I worked with
                Mark to allow the Mile High Table to stay at the updatestage site.

                * March-April - Mark retires from Director work closing shop on updatestage and
                all his sites. I offer to purchase the updatestage domain but am unsuccessful. I
                move Mile High table to my site:
                http://www.deansdirectortutorials.com/MileHighTable/
                A new location is set up for Director bugs and quirks (by Tom McCrystal): The
                Director Community Bugbase
                http://directorbugs.creativeperspectives.com/

                * This week - Andradearts.com comes back with a message saying Mark has decided
                to revive his Xtras.

                Don't think updatestage will be revived. It's main resources, the Mile High Table
                and bugs are now covered in other places.

                regards

                  Still lurkin' from time to time :)

                  I'm still using D8.5*, so much of the help I might provide has a risk of
                  being out of date. That and there are many others already posting the answers
                  I would. And I still despise what the Web Forum does to the newsgroup. I
                  started fading away as the Web Forum grew more and more popular.

                  As the World Turns.

                  Thanks for staying on top of it all.


                  * D8.5 projectors seem to have survived the transition to Windows Vista quite
                  well.
