    Hey guys

    I'm not sure if this is the right section. I'm looking for location of flash temp files on SL. I'm running latest version of flash and safari. Could someone please help me with this? Thanking in advance

    If you're referring to shared objects (a.k.a. Flash "cookies") they are in:
    [user] > Library > Preferences > Macromedia > FlashPlayer > #SharedObjects > [randomly-named folder] ...

    ^no, that's not what I'm looking for.

    I even tried find command in terminal but couldn't find it. :(

    Provide a link to the website/video which is creating the flash temp file. (then we can test the link, and search our own drives).

    Let me also leave this clue: you cannot close the browser window containing the video and expect the flash temp file to sit around all day (or until Safari is quit or something). The instant we leave the page with the viddy, that flash temp file goes poof. Gone.

    ^thanks for your input but I know what you're trying to say.

    well, basically, it's a multiplayer flash game. And I heard that it updates server side data via flash temp files on your local computer. My friend and I want to tamper with those files to see who get's banned from the server first. It's just for fun.
