Suck it and see. Try your SWF in a D11.5 file and make sure it does everything you need it to.
Yes, it does. We have created a few CDRom projects just as you describe. You'll need to be sure to embed all the proper glyphs - We use AS3 to determine if the preffered font can render the text, then drop to Arial Unicode if not -- or device fonts if all else fails. If you have a lot of input, then Director falls a bit short. Last time we just used a classic input field with device fonts. But when we had a lot of input, we couldn't use Director at all and used Zinc 4 instead. Hope that helps.
Thanks for the reply.
I have more questions but they are for the AS3 Forum about switching font resources - enum and all that.
I have to make a class to choose between system fonts and SWF fonts if not avaiable.
Then I get to model it -stress test the time and memory hit.
