    Important! Please help me.

    Hi. I made a few games on flash mx and I want to sell them on the internet. I also want the costumers to be able to try the game before they play the game. I thought about it and I want to make a demo version for free. I want it to be for a period of time and them they have to purchase it to play it more. So what I'm saying is that I want to do that from the time they download the game they have 30 days until it will not let them enter to the game again. How can I do that? Does some body know a way to do that? Please tell me! You can also write to my email at dorkauf@gmail.com or supportdknh@gmail.com

    use the Date object on frame#1 of the movie,
    compare todays date with the expiry date and
    send the user to the appropriate frame -
    Code:
    todayDate = new Date();
    expireDate = new Date(2007,2,17); // 17th March 2007
    
    if(expireDate < todayDate){
    trace("trial has expired");
    } else {
    trace("play the game");
    }
    hth

    Thank you for you feedback.
    But..Doesn't the code you gave me say that the expire date is on a specific date? I want it to be exactly 30 days after they run it or download it..whatever.

    I also wanted to know how to save the data on the user's computer because I want it to expire in 30 days..

    Help will be appreciated!!
    Thanks in advance!!!!!

    to store on the users HD you'll need a Flash "cookie", a sharedObject

    http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowled...fm?id=tn_16194

    the logic would be -
    check if it's the first visit
    if so store the expiry date
    if not, check the stored date against the current date
    if OK play the game
    if expired gotoAndStop("expired_frame");

    Yes, it did help.
    But I only noticed one thing.
    When the user downloads my demo, where will it save the shared object
    file because they don't play it on the website.
    Oh, and also, do you know what the script is for 10 days and then ir is the end of the demo, or is it the same script, just change the 30 to a 10.
    Thank you in advance!!

    I might be able to help you in a NEW thread, but to be brutally
    honest, I can hardly understand what it is you are trying to do

    try opening a new fla file, and make a simple example of what
    you are trying to achieve, post it to the forum. It's Sunday and
    rather than put together a test file for you ( which you'll probably
    say is all wrong for what you need ) I'd rather chill and answer a
    few well constructed (no chat-speak rubbish) questions.

    ps..adding actions to a button is BASIC stuff
    you would find that answer a lot quicker by opening the Help files
