{Flashserver} (Need Max to Talk to Flash for Interactive Flipbook)

    Feb 08 2013 | 11:20 am
    Hi everyone,
    This is my post in an attempt to get this going, I would like to make an interactive flip book controller by a gesture interface with a nice shiny flash front-end.
    I have flash server and the examples patches but i cannot get any to work,
    I could be missing something obvious, could someone maybe give me a step by step guide on how to do just the basic, once i can get the to talk i should be fine!
    Also if there is an easier/alternative method i would love to hear it.

      I haven't done this in a while, so I cannot give you a full step by step guide out of my head. Bute here are some keywords that might help... Basically you need to implement a TCP- or Web-Socket in Flash and than send the data from Max to the Flash application (i.e.using [mxj net.tcp.send]). Sorry for the rough outline, but if you consult Google you will wind many tutorials about sockets in flash.
      Hope that helps to egt you started.
