Checking the flash version doesn’t tell you which AS they are using.

I tried loading a AS2 swf into a parent AS3 swf…doesn’t work.

And as far as leaving a comment or contacting the author…who has time to wait for responses when your clients are expecting a deadline?

like I said earlier, AS is the key to these components, so do ya think, that maybe, just MAYBE we need to know what freakn’ AS version is being used…

I have two components from this site that, while well done, are useless to me because they are AS2 . In fact, just about all the work I’ve seen on this site is fantastic, exceeds my current ability…I just need more info on the right side bar…

I’ve requested a refund/credit for the two components I cannot use, “mini XML gallery” and “Flying Thumbs XML ”

I understand that, “all AS2 unless otherwise noted”, but when are we told this?? did i forget to read something?

I wasn’t aware of that little fact until you told me….

Anyways, I think i’m done with my ranting…hopefully I’ll get a credit

If the Flash version is CS3 it can be both as2 or as3 (or AS1 ). If it’s lower than CS3 it’s AS2 (or AS1 )

I dunno if it’s me but the right bar (Flying Thumbs XML ) says “Opens With Flash 8 (8+)” , soooo how could that be AS3 ???

I do agree that it would be nice to have a language indication, how about suggesting this in the Site Suggestions.

When it says Opens with .. Flash Version X – it means it can be opened with higher versions as well – but it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s AS3 , even if it can be opened with CS3 .

Most probably, it’s AS2 unless it’s written in the description of the file – and if you want to make sure, please ask the author before buying.

So you ignore the compatibility error when you save your file?

I think we need to specify both types of compatibilities… 1. actionscript version (2.0 or 3.0) 2. and the minimum editor version required – ex. Flash 8

now most of our files have specified only the flash editor version… and this is a problem when a user buys a flash9 file and not knowing about the actionscript version. Maybe him needs an as2.0 file… or as3.0 file… – both can be opened with flash 9

I specify in all my files description the editor and the actionscript version.

No… I just include both F8AS2 and F9AS3 files in the zip…

The compatibility setting should be made as check boxes so that it would be possible to include files in multiple F/AS versions…

Something needs to be done, because I’m tired of explaining to people this whole situation. I keep getting people asking “why wont these open” or “oh, I needed AS2 ” on files that clearly say AS3 . I state more than once AS3 if it is an AS3 file. It’s partially FD’s fault for not having a place to specify this where a customer can check to see if it’s compatible, but you buyers need to start paying more attention. I dont like being put in a bad place where i have to tell someone they just wasted $6 and Im not gonna do anything because it’s not my fault.

This is a stupid problem, and should be fixed. Or FD needs to take down that horrible banner on the home page and put up something explaining to buyers this AS2 / AS3 problem and tell them that us the authors are not responsible for their or FD’s shortcomings.

BUYERS : Read. Read comments, Read description, Read stats to the right of the preview.

FlashDEN Admin: Make a place for us to state AS version.
