FarCry Case Study on macromedia.com
The Curtin Business School case study has finally made its way to the Macromedia show case site. It's not particularly well categorised but at least its there. Great to see FarCry getting the recognition it deserves.

Certifiable, The Central Exam Machine...
Since the first sneak peek at the Central Birds of a Feather at MXDU in February there's been a bit of work been done on our first commercial Central application, Certifiable.
Currently available as a preview release, Certifiable uses a Central exam engine developed by Daemon that tests your knowledge of a variety of topics (http://certifiable.daemon.com.au).

Setting the Central Icon, Improving the Installation Badge
While it's possible within the product.xml file to set the path for your Central application's icon as either a relative or an absolute URL, consideration has to be made about how the files for your application will be deployed.
The installation will work if all application files are located in a different directory to where the installer.swf and product.xml are hosted, but you may discover that the icon may be missing from the installation badge if you've used relative paths in product.xml.

Remaining Trial Days in Central
This is pretty cool: in addition to a pop up dialogue box when an application launches, try/buy applications in Central automatically display the remaining number of trial days as an amended icon in Central's toolbar.
We're preparing to launch a new try/buy Central application, Certifiable (http://certifiable.daemon.com.au) - use it to test your knowledge, we've got it available as a preview release at the moment.
