Is Shockwave needed? - Macromedia Director 3D

Almost certainly a lack of understanding, so would be grateful for guidance. I created a Director projector containing Shockwave 3D models.

    Default Is Shockwave needed?

    Almost certainly a lack of understanding, so would be grateful for guidance.

    I created a Director projector containing Shockwave 3D models. I installed the
    latest Full Shockwave player (not the slim version) on the target PC along with
    the Director projector, but the models were missing, clicking where the models
    should have appeared produced' Script error'.

    I found that I had omitted to include the xtras, NetFile.x32, NetLingo.x32 and
    INetURl.x32.
    Including these in the projector resulted in the Shockwave models appearing
    and behaving correctly.

    My queries are, why do the Net... files make the models appear and function
    correctly and am I correct in thinking that the Shockwave Player doesn't
    actually need to be installed?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, as long as you include the required xtras either bundled into the
    projector, or alongside it in a folder named 'xtras', you don't need
    Shockwave to be installed.
    IIRC, the Shockwave3D Asset is reliant on one of the net xtras.

    Many thanks for the prompt reply.

    I'd, naively, thought that NETsomething would be network related...

    I'd had no joy in investigating the xtras functions on-line, as all I get from
    the Adobe links is 'java.lang.NullPointerException: null'

    ...thanks again for the info.
