{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.
