So there's this site you see, and it's written entirely in Flash (which is a Bad Thing™) and the person with the files is ... well, not to put too fine a point on it, rubbish. Therefore I want to know if there's any means of cannibalising a Flash site (I have an old-ish version of the editor) such that the bulk of it can be rendered in the regular html it should be in. Unfortunately, I know next to nothing about the software, I could probably write a slideshow thingy but that's about it, and have not the faintest idea whether this is feasible or not. Anyone have any clues? Typically the person that owns the site (the client not the designer) doesn't have any of the original images even though they "belong" to him, hence the need to get to the source of the Flash so I can find various addresses and t'ing.

Help me Lazyweb, you're my only hope!

Flash ACK !!

Bin,

It must be possible to get the flash files from the current site somehow and use some tool or other to reverse engineer the flash files back to their source components.

Email me a link and I will have a quick look for you.

Cheers,

Simes

If you linked the URL maybe we could have a look at the code and have some fun with it?
Without being able to see the code it would be difficult to simply imagine what could be done!

The site is www.stillnessone.com (http://www.stillnessone.com) since it's a Flash site though there is no code on the page.

Actually, the whole "slice it up" idea is not a bad one at all. The thing is, it's not a bad site (www.stillnessone.com (http://www.stillnessone.com)) by any means but it does not need to be entirely written in Flash. It's a shame really because I rather doubt that anything I could write would be as good, but it would be far simpler for anyone to update. The designer is charging something like £100pa for maintenance and hosting but the maintenance just isn't getting done in a timely fashion so it's a pretty rubbish deal in my opinion.
