Technical Flash Interactive ActionScript Data/Database Advice
on Jan 7, 2008 at 10:32:21 pm

I am currently building a very interactive website, and need some pro advice! Depending your location on the site, I have already implemented flash, and a combo of PS CS3/Dreamweaver, and everything has been pretty basic so far(by most of your standards).

Now I am about to get to the hard part, interactivity, and need a little advice before I start.

The site contains a lot of different judging, broken down into many specific areas. It will be many users/members judging other user/members, and having all the final calculations affect the deiiferent members ratings depending on the judging data.

Then, the members will gain access to other parts of the site, and get benefits based on if they rank high enough in different areas.

I was thinking I could control most of the data input, info, calculations(however you describe it), into Excel and have Excel control most of it???

So what should I start studying to help me out?

Specifically, what kind of ActionScript programming should I focus on? Any suggestions, or advice?

Thanks, and I am willing to give a free honorary membership to anyone who helps me get this done.

I would use mysql database + a preferred scripting language (ie: php, asp) with xml driving the flash.. i believe kirupa.com has some good xml tutorials. Hope this leads you in the right direction

You can also try remoting if you are going to be dealing with a lot of data.
