John Grden from Acmewebworks.com has finally created a tool that I always wanted to build myself but never did due to excessive lazyness: it's called The Admin Tool and is probably best described as an swf debugger on speed. It allows you to remotely connect to swfs you are developing and wade through their intestines, check out and change objects, variables, functions ... just anything. You can remotely execute functions, play sounds and movies - short you have almost full control over the swf - and that's definitely something that the normal debugger has not.
The Admin Tool is currently in beta v.08, but the documentation is excessive (even including videos) - it can be downloaded here. Give the online demo a few moments to load, it took a while at least on my machine.Posted at January 26, 2005 11:07 AM | Further reading
