Live Web: Shared Object, Failed Conversation


Last week in Live Web, we learned about using Shared Objects in Flash and Canvas in JS/HTML. For my homework, I used the ODI and AMO characters I created last year and reimagined in a Shared Object Flash chat. Check it out here. Click on the text field and type new captions for ODI or AMO to say. The Shared Object should sync up with other people viewing the page to reflect the changes.

It kind of works and kind of doesn’t work. Part of it is my buggy code. Part of it is because AMO doesn’t actually have a mouth.
