Concerning AS3 , I’d rather see a tag stating whether an AS2 file is capable of being loaded into AS3 (not always the case here).

The number one thing I concern myself with when I buy a file is “Can I integrate it into my project?” I usually don’t care how’s it’s coded.

Advising reviewers to look for a REMOVED _FROM_STAGE cleanup function is probably a good idea though.

^ The only thing is I haven’t purchased that file before so I can’t really recommend it although it looks like it should be good. It was just one of many here on the site that I was alluding to. Good luck!

Those stats are slightly corrupt as they are based on those that visit W3Schools which are mostly developers… that 4% are probs people who landed there by mistake, or grandads trying to get down with HTML :P:D

True dat. However, my sister works for a major e-commerce website and told me based on their data they’re upgrading from 800×600 to 1024×768.

Hi Pete,

Here’s a screenshot of your html:

Change that to “noscale” and it will work better. There are a few files here that will position your fullscreen flash assets. Here’s one:

It’s growing because you’re using showall in the scale mode. When you’re working with full browser flash, the scale mode is usually set to noscale. Take a look at this template and then resize your browser:

http://s3.envato.com/files/104591/index.html

Now check out the html source. You’ll see it’s set to noscale. This is why the assets don’t scale regardless of the browser size.

This is accomplished by reading in the total width and height of the browser when the page loads and positioning the assets based on these numbers. Then if the window is resized, a function fires that repositions the assets based on the window’s new width and height.

If your site is not designed to function this way, use a fixed width and height (950×550 for example) and then force the minimum width and height with either the CSS I linked to or with swffit.

edit: +1 what tsafi said :)

I always thought cheers was like “best wishes”. No or is it both?

So I just spent a while trying to figure out my issue with this problem without success. I was doing the preloading from a single swf and ended up having to create a loader swf to remove the odd FF3 behavior. I guess this is just one more thing I’ll need to test for in the future :(

Only 4% of users left with 800×600 so I guess you have to decide how important that percentage is to you. My guess is that people using this resolution are already used to scrolling since many sites have switched to 1024×768.

Here’s the CSS I use to force minimum width and height for liquid Full flash sites:
