With regards to Macromedia Director, what you actually want is the Macromedia Shockwave plugin and the Flash plugin. There's two flavours - the combined technology, and the Flash only player. Bear in mind Shockwave is now on version 10, and Flash is version 7, and have advanced hugely since the beta version that appeared on the Acorn Clan CD of 1997/98, which was running version 4 (even by then, it was outdated).

RISC OS is probably not alone in the world as being without this technology, but with ubiquity comes a hopefully lower price. Macromedia could always do reduced license fees for lower versions, just to encourage some development without the developers taking a price hit in the process. It its enough to encourage more sales in our platform, then you get added impetus to license the latest version?

You never know what may happen in 2005. I think for now, however, attention is now drawn to more recent events... in any case, all the best for the new year everyone :-)
