Flash Tracer

Tuesday, July 24th, 2007

Well after a little time and a tip from a friend I got the firefox flash tracer plug-in working(available here). You need to uninstall the regular player(uninstaller available here). Then install the debug player(available here). Assuming you have used the flash 9 debug player and have already installed the flash tracer from above then in the options of the flash trace panel in the ‘select output file’ enter the below location:

for windows xp:

C:Documents and Settings{user account}Application DataMacromediaFlash PlayerLogsflashlog.txt

other OSs to come.

If you are done all that you should be good to go.

FDT 3.0

Monday, July 16th, 2007

Well after working with flex for a little I started to get a little nostalgic. I was in eclipse, I was writing ActionScript so what was missing I thought to my self. FDT was what I was missing. Checked out the site and FDT 3.0 is nearly out. They are currently on an unplanned second round of closed beta release. The open beta will be out soon wouldn’t mind taking a peak at that. Flex, Apollo and FDT are all eclipse based so i am real keen to see if FDT can still hold its ground as a leading AS editor.
