Flash 8 Easter Egg(s)
October 4, 2005
See www.buraks.com/mxegg for Flash MX easter egg. For Flash MX 2004 easter eggs see ASVGuy::SWFBlog.
There are 3 easter eggs (A message hidden in the object code of a program as a joke, intended to be found by persons disassembling or browsing the code) hidden in the about box of Flash 8.
 

 
First two are not new at all: the name 'John Malkovich' and games found at http://www.macromedia.com/go/flashegg2.swf.
 
The third one is a SWF animation, which you can see below:
 

 
Who are those in the pictures? Not a hard question, they are Macromedians who worked on Flash 8 and there are actually 74 pictures rotating there!
 
Most of them are from Flash 8 authoring team (as opposed to Player team). We simply matched export IDs of the movieclips with the pictures to the names listed in credits to get who's who.
 
And here they are (listed by export ID names), with all our thanks for their hard work on Flash 8:
