How to make an interactive DVD?
on Jul 4, 2006 at 3:28:53 am

I posted this over in the Adobe Encore forum also, but i need an answer asap.

So what i need to do is take a flash MX game and make it function the same but on a conventional home DVD player.

The game is a children's game where the child selects between 3 different answers. When the correct answer is chosen a small movie is played and cuts to the next game.

Any ideas?

You would have to design the menu like the original Flash game. Then, when the user selects the correct button, have it jump to a track of the movie.

DVD authoring is much too complex to provide all answers on a forum. Do a search for some tutorials.

Also check out these books:

Ok thanks. Actually i think i can visualize what you are saying.

It will act like a regular navigation DVD only a little more complicated.

Is there any way to learn from reverse engineering from games already on DVD's i have?

I'm going to order those books right away. Well the PC speciic ones anyways.

Hi Dan

Yes you can take a look at a DVD "inner workings" - Try this app. if you have a mac:

It takes some knowledge of the DVD spec to understand but with some time you'll see how those games work.

Also be warned that defeating the CSS on a disc is illegal and not supported here.

Come back and ask more question if you like.

Hi Eric,

Thanks for your help. I'm on PC here. Ok i will not ask anymore about the CSS comprimizing.

Is there any example scenes i could purchase from adobe or whoever that show how to make a simple game?
