Update for Tiger and MacOS 10.3.9. Added the ability to play flash files through Personal Web sharing. Some files don't play directly from hard disk, but need to be played form a server.
You can do this on your Mac by:
When iSwiff opens files in your "Sites" folder it will open them through your web server, and they may fullfill the need to be network played. Some games have stronger requirements than this, and they can only be played from the website where they reside.
- Enable Personal Web sharing in System Preferences.
- Place the flash files in your "Sites" folder.
