For my mulit-media apps I have all data+text etc in different stacks.
With "go card x of stack y in the window of this stack". So for the
USer it looks like there is only one Window where happens everything.
If I need "anything additional" (like: about his programm) I make a
substack of the theme-stacks.
* easy for the user to update change/replace a theme-stack(complete
themes) even by downloading from the net..
* Starting by the flash(main) stack, which is very, very small (one
card one gif only) is very fast
* no needs to load all other stack to memory, because you can go
directly in to any other stacks no matter where they are
* splitting it in small theme-stacks you can manage big amount of data
without a database, without slowing down the speed
* changing between the stack is very fast
* all data is protected with password by rev during the build
* changes in the UI (navigation bar menu...) you have to do so many
times as you have theme-stack.
Maybe you or any other professional scripter here can find a solution
how to automate this. (I could not...)
* It crashes on MacOs 9.x with the old (rev 1.1.1) engine. Nobody could
find out (what) is that the real reason for this crashes... So, i
think, maybe this structure of "go card x of stack y in the window of
this stack" is the problem...
But this problem should(?) be solved today by 2.0 with the new engine...
(But I had no problems on WIN98/XP and OSX)
* maybe more I have not found out until now
Hope you understand my explication...
If this structure sounds interesting to you, than mail me offline. Ill
send you a password and an Url for a demo version to see how it
works!(builded with rev 1.1.1)
