HI,
I need to decompile and edit SWF file. I only need to know the free tool for that or if that's possible in your opinion. Source FLA file does not exist. The rest I've learned here:

I tried Flash Decompiler v.1.4 from Flash-Decompiler.com. It decompiles well but I cannot edit the file.

You will never be able to get from a SWF to a FULL Fla file. Things like motion-tweens, layers, guides etc will be gone. Symbols and action script can be retrieved. So rebuilding a FLA is more easy with the decompilation tools, thats all.

I understand. I know you cannot completely decompile. But to be sure, let me ask you this.
All I need is to take a few text-images (names of people) and remove them. Also, add a few other names with links. Basically, replacing the images with other ones and changing their links.
Let me know if that is impossible.

Yes and No. You can replace them (because decompiling can give you the original symbols/buttons/movieclips) but when compiling the new SWF will be much bigger and functionality (actionscript etc) will be gone. Speed of movie might be different as well. So you need to rebuild the FLA and then replace images for best result.

The original FLA is a must for managing the flash movie, sorry! Good luck!
