"does not work"

September 14, 2005  |  By Allen Greenspam

Cons

the decompiled files never work.

"So, when will it do something?"

June 22, 2005  |  By One Ringy Dingy

 |  Version: Sothink SWF Decompiler 2.7 build 50628

Pros

Occupational therapy in a do-nothing sort of way

Cons

The only thing I got to work was the pop-up for opening a file. Once I chose the file, nothing showed, none of the four files I chose showed, and nothing else I clicked on worked either. Can you say "Never-Neverland"? 177K+ downloads? You gotta be kidding!

"provide a url to download all of your testing swfs"

May 18, 2005  |  By SourceTec

 |  Version: Sothink SWF Decompiler 2.7 build 50628

Pros

upload all your swf files to your server, and publish that url for everybody to download those files and do the test. Request via email is not an open way.

"there are better swf to fla converters"

May 17, 2005  |  By meRichard2

 |  Version: Sothink SWF Decompiler 2.7 build 50628

Cons

ave-imperator.com/pages/testmay.html

Didn't you read the test page?

We have thousands of swf files to prove the result.

I mean, if the decompiler would have failed to create clean fla documents for 10 or 20 percent of our test pool files one could still argue that this is a statistical anomaly (which could happen, of course).

It failed to create clean fla documents for more than 97 percent - that is no statistical anomaly - that is a fact!

"to meRichard from SourceTec Software"

May 11, 2005  |  By Sothink

 |  Version: Sothink SWF Decompiler 2.7 build 50628

Pros

Do you think it is a good competition method as our competitor? Your action was degrading your company. It is the first time we witness such a thing since 1997 when our company was established.

We did not claim that our program can recover every fla file. It is a truth that every program has bugs more or less, because nothing is perfect. The testing result was declared by you, how can we believe that statistics? Before each final release, we make a full test using our swf files in our database. We did not find those errors you claimed, otherwise, we will not release that version. If we release a version that contains so many problems, it is not a responsible action to all our customers. We did not and will not do that.

We think that the problem now is that our testing swf database does not cover those swf files you tested. We're very pleased to do the test ourselves if you can publish your so-called pool of 4603 complex and ActionScript-heavy SWF files, which is also questionable in our view.

Actually, we are willing to establish a good relationship with others, even our competitiors. Shall we exchange links if you do not mind?

"The program clearly fails to recover complex files."

May 04, 2005  |  By meRichard

 |  Version: Sothink SWF Decompiler 2.7 build 50628

Cons

Sothink makes the claim that their Decompiler MX 2005b is "The world's leading flash decompiling tool to ... especially convert your SWF to FLA".

Well, we put it to the test:

@ ww.ave-imperator.com/pages/testmay.html

The SWF Decompiler MX 2005b Build 50408 was able to recover 131 clean FLA documents from our pool of 4603 complex and ActionScript-heavy SWF files. That is less than 3% - making the words "world's leading" not only questionable, but plain false and rather ridiculous. There is absolutely no doubt that IMPERATOR ┬░FLA v2.0 is a better and much more reliable SWF to FLA converter than the SWF Decompiler MX 2005b.
