Flash for a crossword puzzle

Posted:
in General Discussion edited January 2014
When I try to open a UClick crossword puzzle I get the error message below.

Where is Safari/Applications? I have looked through the menu. No joy.



Clicking on Safari/Help/installed plug-ins, I get a long list of plug-ins, including the following:



application/x-shockwave-flash\tShockwave Flash



Is that what the following error message means? Okay, I've gone about as fer as I can go. HELP.



Error message:

To view the movie, open your browser in the 32-bit mode.



1) In Safari, select Applications/Safari in the Finder and click More Info.

2) Ensure that Open in 32-bit mode is selected.

3) Re-launch the browser.

    It means the Safari app in your applications folder. If you open the info panel (command-i) when it's selected, there should be a checkbox to open in 32-bit mode. Your new computer runs most things in 64-bit but some plugins will still be 32-bit so you have to run the main app as 32-bit too. This happens with some system preference panes too.

    Right! Thank you. It's much slower to open but it WORKS well after it opens.



    When I grow up, I want to be just like you.

    I have done many projects with flash and was asked to make a crossword puzzle. It's quite easy to make a predefined, static one, but how would one go about making a complex system where you could insert let's say 50 words with appropriate descriptions and have it all align itself?

    Sounds like a challenge indeed.

    Which techniques would you use to accomplish these? PHP?..
