you end up seeing a new cs3 website and thinking yay a new version you purchase it and it ends up being as2. and no it doesnt say on it that its a lower version. being cs3 it should be as3. there are no point in making as2 files in cs3, you should post it in 8 because cs3 opens 8 just fine and also people using flash 8 dont have to get it emailed to them.

CS3 only opens 8 if it was saved as 8 in CS3 . If it was just saved normally 8 wont open it…

Not a bad point though I think, as clarification for buyers.

I don’t think he’s saying that Flash 8 will open CS3 files. He’s saying that if it’s an AS2 file, there is no point in saving it as a CS3 .fla.

yeah.. that it’s a good one…
i always write the file type + the actionscript version at the beginning of the file description.

maybe some inputs on file submit will clear the problem.. – file type & as version.

agreed, if its a AS2 it should be declared as flash 8 not CS3
