Create A Database That Logged In Users Could Access And Add Customization?
Nov 27, 2010
I want to make a game where a user logs in. Once the user logs in, they have access to a database (let's just say a database of weapons). They could choose a certain amount of "weapons" and every time they log in, they still have the same weapons, regardless of cookies, because the "weapons" are linked to their username. Then the users could use their weapons to battle other users. Also, the user's username keeps track of their wins and losses. I have newb to basic flash knowledge (I took an animations class); I could animate, make buttons, websites, etc. Does anyone have some insight that could point me in the right direction?
I just started checking out using actionscript and facebook API documentation. I was wondering how I could display a facebook users name and profile picture in my SWF so when the user visits my site it shows their info (they will already be logged in)?
getting the list of the users currently connected to a BlazeDS server? Is there any built-in mechanism of knowing this? or do I have to implement some kind of server side logic every time a user access my Flex application and store all logged in users details somewhere and retrieve them later?
I want to create a flash application where users will have access to 10, 5 seconds audio loops. They can choose any 4 tracks to make a 20 second track. I then want that mp3 to be stored somewhere or flash to create to a file which can be sent to friends in facebook where they can listen to that beat. There will be a little button at the bottom saying 'click here' to make your own beat.
I want to add the ability to have my flash game record the users progress then save to a database. That part is pretty easy, but how can I make it so the user can login and continue their game. I also wanting to know if it'll be better for the game progress to be saved with SharedObjects or with an SQL database. I would like it that the game could be played on any website and their data can still be accessed and played if that is advised. I am new to user sessions with AS3 and need pointers.
I need to have access to the logged in user throughout a flash application. Therefor I'm concidering making the 'user' variable global.
I usually try to avoid global variables, but it seems quite suitable in this case and I'm not the first to concider the active user as a global. I know that systems like drupal also uses a global variable for the logged in user.I want to know if stackoverflow thinks of this as bad practice or if there are better alternatives.
Is it possible for Flash or possibly Adobe AIR to have access to a local Access database?
I will have either a Flash EXE or AIR application running on a local PC (WinXP). The PC will also have a local Access database. I need my Flash application to get the data from this Access database. How would I do this?
I doubt it can be done with Flash or AIR alone (someone prove me wrong or right), but is there an option for some middle-man application to access the data base and send it on to Flash? How would this work?
Or could I read the MDB file into Flash and parse it myself? is there a library for this?
i'm trying to create a swf that retrieves the users location (town)I've looked about online and it seems this could be done by using longitutde/latitude values for example(Guessing thats how you would do it - open to suggestions though!)I've seen working examples of this on various peices of flash that magically tell you what town your.
I'm trying to create a grid where the users can 'draw' across it and change the colors of the grid squares to a chosen color.In the following code, I'm creating the grid with squares. I've got the functionality 'working', but it's only working on the last square instanced.How do I get it to work on all the squares, not just the last one?
I'm doing an application adobe air with Flash CS4, in as3 , I'm really don't need a database, but a small file database it gives me some adventages, just I need a little file, with 2 o 3 tables for a few data, no much that 50 I think. I look for some kind of database that don't need instalation(important), if with a dll, or something similar (it's only for windows). I google for the last 4 hours but only I find mysql, and I don't want any kind of motor working. MS Access, it would be ok, but I haven't found information.

I'm making an application (web based) using flex and i have a requirment to access the SQLite database on the local system. There is no server running and i've decided to give them the link to the html file and see how that works out.
So in the root directory, there will be all required swf, html files, etc and a .db file. Can i access that database thro the flex web application ?
I am accessing my MySQL database through Flash using AS3. I am using php scripts to access my database and send and receive variables. Everything is working fine. No problems there. The problem, or rather the question is, is it possible for flash to run a script to access a database without a webserver running on the machine? Isn't there some sort of plugin or adapter or interface class available in flash that will allow me to do that?
I am looking to build an app that allows end users to draw and save mini animations (simple predetermined shapes that move in 2D). So far I have a written a app that allows the user to draw a single frame using simple shapes and lines, but I am having some small troubles at this stage, and have not attempted to allow the user to animate or save the drawing.
If anyone knows of a tutorial or some other resource to put me on the right path I would be very grateful. I can also share what I have if anyone would be willing to give me some pointers
I am developing a ASP.NET web site where users will need to be able to create their own business cards. So, I'm looking for a tool (most likely Flash) that I can easily integrate into a web site and lets users add text and custom images to their cards and then create an image and/or PDF from their work.
I'm a beginner with Flex Builder. I need to get application to communicate with an Access Database. I'm in the planning phase of implementing a Call Log for myself. I'd like my app to run on my desktop (AIR) and as a web app. Basically, I need to document my incoming service calls. My customers will give me an ID number, with this number I can post new service call info, or pull up past service calls and/or display their system info all different tables. How Flex communicates with databases? I know it uses XML, PHP, AMF, etc. Do I have to use PHP to return the XML coding for Flex to read? I'm familiar with PHP and MySQL within Flash; however, it seems that I have to use MS Access for this app.
I am running CS3. I want to access and update a MS SQL database through ASP but I could not find data components to download for CS3. I found Phil Heinz's tutorial[URL] but it is for MX Pro 2004. Should I be using Flex to do this or will the Flash 8 data components work on CS3?
I have a map as a button in flash and a database in access, how can I show the data in asscess in flash , now i know there is no a direct link from access to flash and I have to use PHP, ASP, etc.... But really I am not a programmer and I don't want to be .. so any easier way to do this?
just like facebook game, I see that even I am playing facebook social game, it still have some downloading when I click on an item for the first time, or just by doing something new. Is that people can divide flash into many parts and connect them when they need?
HOW CAN I CREATE BUTTONS THAT LET USERS SET THE SIZE OF THE SHAPES THAT THEY PAINT? I have written syntax that let mouse movements paint ellipses and rectangles and I have also added buttons that allow users to switch between painting ellipse and painting rectangles.
For my wishlist site, I would like to propose widgets to my users in order to publish their wishlist on their blog or personal website. The idea is to propose a few lines of code to my users that they only need to copy/paste to insert the widget displaying their wishlist. What is the best way to create/develop a widget ?
