Re: Future of LC?

BTW, I doubt the company would be moving into a new and larger building if they were having financial difficulties. I fully expect the company outlive me.

Re: Future of LC?

Building iOS apps requires a complex dance between LC and Xcode, which changes with every new version of Xcode. Without the LiveCode company to make such changes within new versions of LC, LC would quickly become obsolete for building iOS apps unless someone else assumed that mantle.

Re: embedded audio clips pause

There should be another hidden copy of this 3Gb movie
somewhere in your Hard Disk or...
Did LiveCode memory requirements suddenly jumped
3 Gb more than before?
Or perhaps the memory requirements of a player are not limited by LC's memory requirements.

Re: embedded audio clips pause

I then deleted the file. Started the player. It played. Dragged the controller near to the end. It ...

Re: HOw pulling data from TCP Connection?

Gilar, You might want to use an array variable in memory to store the most recent data for each racer. For example when this is received: *** PASSINGS BEGIN *** (1) Numero;Nom;TotalNbTour;TotalTpsCumule 13A;OKTAVIANO RIZQY;1;33393 *** PASSINGS END *** The array could be structured with the value of ...

Re: download a lot of .png files

Also if fld "fListImgDL" only contains the filenames of the remote files then this might be slightly faster, as it uses a variable instead of repeatedly reading a field. And it is uses the actual number of file names in that variable instead of the fixed amount 3500: put "https://..." into tDistantF...
