A lot of people have posted similar threads but Im still having trouble. Ive managed to get flashserver to send data to Max but its sending data the other way thats causing me stress!
All I want to do is control movie clips from within Max. I used the code from the flashserver instructions,
argv = ; // create a new array
doc = doc.substr(0, doc.length - 1); // chop off ';' at the end
argv = doc.split(" "); // split at spaces and convert to array
argc = argv.length; // get number of elements in array
for(i = 0; i < argc; i++) // loop through all arguments
msg += "argument "+ i +" is "+ argv[i];
clip = argv; // get name of MovieClip
frame = argv; // get the frame number
Iv then sent the message "clip1 2" to flashserver (clip1 being my movie clip name and 2 being the frame i want to play from) that gave me an error message telling me flashserver couldnt undertand. Ive also tried sending the message broadcast clip1 2, this didnt do anything. Im probably missing something really small but any help would be much appreciated.
