Flashkit Who Wants to be a Millionaire(external link)

This Flash game is designed to take the questions from a text file and display them in an interface similar to the popular game show "Who Wants to be a millionaire?". It reads each question from the text file one at a time and its corresponding answer. That answer is randomly put in one of the four possible answer choices. The other answer choices are filled with random answers from the other questions. Should the user answer correctly, their score increments. If the user answers incorrectly or runs out of time, their score decrements by two points. Downloadable .fla file.

Flash MX: Not Just Another Flash in the Pan(external link) by Jim Duber

At approximately fifteen minutes past midnight on March 15, 2002 (Pacific Standard Time), Macromedia released a revised version of Flash, a programming tool designed especially for use in authoring interactive multimedia content for distribution on the Web. Dubbed Flash MX (to identify it with a line of future products from Macromedia to carry the same "MX" moniker), the authoring tool was released along with a new version of the browser plug-in, this one named Flash Player 6. Within moments of its release, the servers at Macromedia were inundated with requests for downloads of the new program, trial versions and the new plug-in. All for good reason too, as there are quite a few awe-inspiring features in this new version which will revolutionize the teaching and learning of ESL/EFL on the Internet.
