Some days ago a friend of mine showed me a “strange” (this is what i was thinking looking at that) application which made a complete debug of its flash movie.
Wow, incredible easier easier and easier than the Flash builtin debugger!!
Thus I immediately downloaded it and i was surprised of the impressive work this guy made!
Reading from admin tool’s web page: The AdminTool (AT) is a “snapshot viewer” of the current state of your Flash application without impacting the performance or the file size of your application. … It Works when published in the FlashIDE, local player, web browser. This means that you can debug your application at runtime from its intended location.
Basically it works with a Flash component (an mxp extension) which resides in your swf library and open a localconnection to the main admin tool interface.
Moreover you can change in realtime every property of your running swf to see what happens with that change.
And you can execute actionscript code in runtime from the admin tool, and see that code executed in you swf!! You can see also every video and sound from the swf.
The only requirement is that swf must be compiled for AS2 only. Downloads (mxp, win exe, mac exe and help files) are availables here: http://acmewebworks.typepad.com/…/admin_tool_down.html
