Werner Sharp has just announced a public beta of the “Export to Pocket PC Xtra” for Director 8/8.5.
This Xtra will actually take your .DIR and convert it into eMbedded Visual C++ code that will then compile in the freely available eVC IDE from Microsoft. All your Lingo and cast members are converted into eVC code and assets, and compiled into a native Pocket PC application.
For Director/Flash developers who’ve run into a wall with the relative slow speeds of Flash rendering and ActionScript performance on a Pocket PC, this will provide an highly optimized playback engine capable of twitch game performance on the Pocket PC. Plus the power of Director.
