I’ve been playing around with the free evaluation copy of Adobe Flash CS4 Professional. I’m really enjoying it. The scripting language is a bit clunky compared to the programming languages I am familiar but it is powerful (and quite simple to put together fun little games).
I think the price-tag of CS4 is just a bit too much for me at this time, so I probably won’t continue with this once the evaluation period ends, but while I’m at it, I’ll be posting whatever little flash apps I make.
I’ll keep them all on this page so that people who don’t have flash can still view my blog, et cetera.

The key for the embedding to work is NO SPACES , line breaks
Simple PHP Test
To make sure inline PHP works (turns out I didn’t really need the inline php for my various projects).
A Simple *7 Calculator
Uses an external PHP file. The flash file sends the number the user enters to the PHP file. It sends back that number * 7. The Flash file then displays the output.
A simple slideshow application. It takes a variety of inputs.
Stage 1: Just File (update this once I change it to database input).
Goes inside a php file
echo "&returnLogo=""; returns the logo that will display in header
echo "&returnCount=2"; How Many PICTURES - does not count LOGO
The LOGO should be a file with Width=410 and Height = 20 row1 = # of rows To learn how to use this viewer with your own blog/site see the Flash Reader post. Check out the world viewer main page.
The pictures should be 418 x 233
returnFade = delay (this is the alpha increment each frame)
Set the project by using flashvars (input is set in flash vars)
header I use http://yourothermind.com/publish/wp-content/uploads/header.jpg
row2 = Delay
row3 = header
row4..x = one entry for each row
row1 = # of rows
