    We eventually got in touch with their CEO, who gave us a copy of 2.0.7 which fixes the Flash 10 problem. Their support is shocking though, so as we've since found more bugs I'm just going to write...

    You can't do that. I can't think why you'd want to.

    If I'm right in thinking, you're after a single object reference that can be accessed by lots of objects. If you make that object reference...

    Yeah kids can't do anything these days, parents are so paranoid there's a Gary Glitter on every street corner. I blame the media.

    I left my iBook open overnight on my desk, when I went back the following morning there was a faint burning smell.

    The cat had piddled in the keyboard.

    One dead iBook.

    Little Flash 10 experiment

    Had a little tinker with Flash 10 this morning, to see if it could speed up a particularly heavy duty 2D game I converted a while back.

    I think part of the problem is that Flash isn't seen as "proper" games programming by games developers. I know because up until a year ago I had the same view myself.
