I'd like to design a game engine in Macromedia Director. I'm not able to find information on some things I'd like to do: I want to have an external text file that lists the path of various media files: a QT animation, a bitmap, a sound file, etc. I want to read text from the text file, and play the sound, video, display the image, etc from the path. Basically, I do not want to have unique cast members for every single media file I need to display. The game engine will be a myst style engine; click on a hotspot, show an animation, then show a bitmap. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
