Chapter 21. Controlling the Player > Troubleshooting the Player

Troubleshooting the Player

  • Because a custom cursor is just another Flash graphic, it will scale along with the rest of the movie, unlike a system cursor. If you don't want a scaling cursor, you must scale the cursor inversely to the movie. This isn't possible in the standalone Player or projectors, but in a Web page, the size of an embedded movie can be detected by JavaScript and passed back to the Flash movie when a window is resized. The custom cursor can then be scaled smaller as the movie itself increases in size.

  • On slower computers, timed animations can make graphics jump from place to place instead of performing a smooth movement. Instead of equal steps that might halt during downloads or slow redraws (typical of timeline animation), algorithmic animation has its own potential problems. You need to find a solution that works with your programming style and target audience.

  • System dates are dependent on the settings the users have entered into the computer. If they've entered the wrong date and time, you won't be able to get the current time and date from the system, but calculations between dates will be fine.
