Update 2010:
My program is automatically downloading Shockwave 10 (not the most current Shockwave) and the "xtras" file that is needed is not there.

So, you can download it from my site here - right click and "Save link as": Swadcmpr.x32

Then place this "xtras" file in the C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Shockwave 10\Xtras folder and refresh this page.

The movie is 14.5 MB and takes approx. 1 minute to load on a DSL line. While you wait for it to load, you can play a ping-pong game, fun-fun! Also, there's music, so don't forget to turn up your speakers.

Tech Notes:
Although I should have incorporated Flash to reduce file size and for smoother frame-by-frame animation, I wanted to see what Director could handle. A couple sections in my project require more memory than is available sometimes, causing the the browser to crash - ugh. Also, some of the animations need to run thru once before obtaining proper speed.

Before you can play the movie, you need to install the FULL Shockwave Player, NOT Slim.
