Re: Flaws in Adobe Shockwave Isn't Shockwave only used for games? I never understood why they need this when they have Flash!

I found it a hell of a lot more useful in the mid to late 90's. I still continue to install and support the installation of updates to Shockwave, but I see little use of it right now.
Found this little quote on differences between Flash and Shockwave:
The difference between the Macromedia Flash and Shockwave Players
Flash and Shockwave Players are both free web Players from Adobe. Together, they bring you the best rich media content on the Internet. Each has a distinct purpose. Flash Player delivers fast loading front-end web applications, high-impact web site user interaction, interactive online advertising, and short to medium form animation.
Shockwave Player displays destination web content such as interactive multimedia product demos and training, e-merchandising applications, and rich-media multi-user games. Through Xtras, Shockwave Player is also extendable to playback custom-built applications.
Remember that cool hidden "Graffiti Wall" here on BBR? After the name change I became the "owner", so to speak as it became: Dustyn's Wall »[Serious] RIP
