View Full Version : G5 Flash MX naming issue

10-06-2003, 05:58 PM
Hey, as the thread title indicates I'm getting a very strange behavior with Flash and my new G5 when I "save as" I'm getting extra characters added on to the end of the file name, usually they're oddball latin math characters like pi and omega ...etc.

Anyone else having this issue, and more importantly found a way to make it stop?

you have a G5 and a pinkaboo?

I hate you...

oh yeah I've seen that on the macs at school - you're not running that under os9 are you?

I dont think the G5s boot into 9, and since MX is built for OSX I wouldnt think it'd be run in 9 :-\

I've never had that problem on the family mac, sorry, but it doesn't look like I can help. Why not try and contact MM or Apple?

MX does run in 9...you're probably right though about g5's not even having 9 installed

I was just saying that I wouldnt think thered be a reason to even have it in 9. If you got OSX right there, why have it in 9? My experience that classic apps dont run any better than they do in OSX (Director 8 especially - its crippled in classic)
