    php/flash game trouble

    Hi guys,

    I also posted this in the Flash forum and I know I shouldn't double post (wait a minute, I'm breaking a rule I should be enforcing!), but I think it's relevant in both forums. Here's the info:

    A few months ago I downloaded an open source Flash/php memory game. I'm trying to make a memory game with cartoon characters (spongebob, blue, bob the builder, etc) for my son to play (he's four). I know he'd like it, and his birthday is coming up. So, I downloaded it all but haven't gotten a chance to play with it until recently. I'm having trouble with it all and I cannot for the life of me find where I got it from (otherwise I would just ask the original author). *sigh*

    So, I happened across this game online that looked good and downloaded all the files. It worked from the get-go, but I wanted to change some things. I know VERY LITTLE about php and Flash, but I thought I could get it all changed the way I want.

    I have changed a few things (background colors, etc) but am having trouble with the rest. I think I've also screwed some things up.

    Could you please check out the current game HERE and take a look? There's a lot to change, but I want to get the basic functionality first. I'd appreciate any help as my son's birthday party is Saturday and I'd like to have it done for him then.

    1. The images behind the blue "cards" are NOT random. If you play the game, you'll notice that the images are always vertical. What I mean is that say you turn over the card in the upper left. The card immediately below matches. It's like that over the entire game. It USED TO BE random. I don't know what the hell I did (it had to be me ), but I would like to get it back so that the images are randomly generated.

    2. The scoring isn't working right. If you click on highscore after playing, you see all this "undefined" stuff. Something's not right there. Again, that used to work and I don't know what happened to cause it to change.

    3. All of the images are cats. As stated, I want to make the game full of cartoon characters. However, in Flash when I look in the library, I cannot see images of the cats anywhere. How do I change the cats to cartoon characters. I can provide the cartoon images I have if you need them.

    I have rolled the fla, swf, html, and php files into a zip file. That zip file is HERE. Can someone please help me get this all working right? I'd be most appreciative!!!

    Thanks!

    For the most part, I got it figured out. The php problem was nothing more than incorrect permissions, man. Easy fix. The Flash is what I am still working on, but at this point, it's done. I am just fighting with a damn preloader, LOL. It's being a pain, but I should be able to figure it out no worries. Thanks!
