I am a G4 Mac user, Flash Professional 8.
The site is called [url removed, login to view], and this is an interactive story, created in Flash, where the user writes their own story by rewording the Pledge of Allegiance. The Flash file currently publishes for Flash Player 7, and ActionScript 1.0, but I am more than happy for it to publish for Flash 8 player and Actionscript 2.0, if that is what's necessary.
First, the visitor makes a choice of a background movie that they want to play behind the words that they are going to write. They have six background movies, or "themes," to choose from.
Then, I want them to write the words for their "story," in this case, their own rewording of the Pledge of Allegiance. The rewording of the Pledge of Allegiance will be stored in a database and will play whenever a visitor comes to the site and wants to see it. When the words play, the background movie (or "theme") that the writer originally selected will also play behind it as a background.
The whole site is created in Flash; the current version also uses additional PHP files to save the revised Pledges to the database.
I would like to ditch the current script version because it is only half completed and hacking something into it would take longer than writing new script from scratch.
Instead, I would like someone (please!) to create the script for writing and saving the Pledges AND choosing the background movies. Flash or PHP, it doesn't matter to me as long as it works with my server.
There is a (somewhat) working model of this site at [url removed, login to view]
You will note that the site currently works as far as saving the Pledges, but it does not add the background movies.
A few other small parts of the job:
1) I would like ALL of the text of the Pledges (including the static text displayed at the beginning of each line) to be centered when the Pledge plays. In the current version, the text is left-justified;
2) very minor--I have included the original text of the Pledge of Allegiance inside each of the Input Text boxes. I would like each of those lines of text to disappear when the writers click inside the Input Text boxes, so they can then write their own text without having to erase the original text.
A final word--writing these interactive stories is completely non-profit for me. In fact, I lose money, but I like the idea of using the web for more than simply commerce, but art, too... In other words, I have a modest budget, but I guess that would be typical for most people! And of course I will add a credit on the credits page of the site for whoever does the job...
Thanks for your interest, and I hope I have been clear enough...
