    colliding lawn bowls (xp)

    This might not be the right forum, however....

    I have made PowerPoint presention for coaching of lawnbowls.
    PowerPoint is limited as it cannot do collinding bowls etc.

    I have flash subroutines which do this (collision, velocity, acceleration, gravity

    You can place Flash SWF files in PPT using an ActiveX control. http://www.flashgeek.com has good information on how to do this. http://www.indezine.com also has some good info on Flash and PPT.

    Also check into Shyam Pillai's free Flashback add-in -- use this to automatically rewind the SWFs in PPT.

    Note that neither the 97 or the 2003 PPT Viewers support ActiveX, so if you're using a Viewer to distribute your presentation, you won't want to use the SWF in the ActiveX control.

    As for the WindowsCE game, I suspect you'd need some kind of converter for that, but I don't know for sure. Have you checked with the authors of the game to see if they have a version which will play on WinXP?

    Thanks fellows for your help.

    All I now have to do is learning flash and incorporating it in my presentations. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/read.gif border=0 alt=read width=19 height=33>

    Hope this old bloke knows what he is letting himself in for. <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16> <img src=/S/exclamation.gif border=0 alt=exclamation width=15 height=15>

    I recommend checking out http://www.swishzone.com/ they have a product cheaper than Flash (and at one time a time limited download that let you play with the product for quite a while). And while it doesn't do everything Flash does, it seemed to be a good introductory product.
