FLASH PROGRAMMER NEEDED: Flash Altimeter Guage
I received an aircraft style altimeter flash object from a developer in Italy that I was wondering if anyone in the community could convert to work with RoadRunner? I have piloted numerous types of aircraft and everytime I look at the DFX 4 Gauges skin I think I want to replace the "satellites locked" gauge with a real altimeter. Well I found one.
"Luiz Monteiro" <[email protected]> has been kind enough to send me the source of the altimeter he uses on his website. I promised to give him all the credit for this flash object if we can get it working and he requested we not release the source beyond developers. He said, "Inside the Action script all you need to do is change the place that says: my_temp=12345; //This is where you set the altitude. It can be an external variable." That's all the instructions that I got. He said it was created the last flash source with flash CS3. But he sent me another source he said is an exported Flash 8 file.
In case you're not familiar with aircraft altimeters the longest "T" needle is for 10000s, the short fat diamond shaped needle is for 1000s and the medium length skinny needle is for 100s of feet. I'd like to reduce these to 1000, 100, and tens, respectively, and I'd still like to see the Kollsman window on the right being pulled from the RR weather label, "W_BAR", but I'll settle for just getting it working in RR.
The difference between whats on his website
and what he sent in the .fla
is the orange digital numeric vs altitude warning window. I personally would like to see the digital #s like on the website.
I provided a copy of the source to JohnWPB to look at and he did make some changes to make it more like his other flash gauges, however, he couldn't get it to work in RR. If any of you developers have time could you PM me for the .FLA code and take a look at this source and let me know if it can be converted to read Altitude from RR?
