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:

I used Tweener for a while and it was great until I made something that fired a bunch of tweens at the same time. Then I noticed a big difference in performance with TweenMax.

Ironically I haven’t seen it anywhere else but I don’t do a lot of surfing. It actually happened to me for a site with a preloader I bought from here. I thought maybe it was the coding so I completely recoded it and it still happened. Totally bizarre! I reinstalled the latest Flash player and still no luck. I thought it was something wrong with me until I saw Rondog’s comment.

Just noticed a comment Rondog made on a file about a file not loading past it’s preloader in Firefox 3. I sometimes experience this when I’m on a page and reload it. Has anyone else been experiencing this besides me and Rondog?

It usually happens when you reload the page in FF3 . It makes no sense why this would NOT happen in other browsers???

It doesn’t happen in IE8 , Opera and Chrome. So what’s the deal with Firefox? I’ve seen this with many files.

I think the problem is the y positioning. The bg seems to be fixed at the bottom left corner during resize. Resize to barely nothing and you’ll see what I mean.

Nice site by the way :)

I even tried to create the same instance on my child to bypass the compil error but didn’t do

just crazy

The compile error happens when you test the child swf by itself because it technically doesn’t have a parent yet. It only inherits a parent when it’s officially been loaded into another swf. This is why you will always experience an error if you try to access something that doesn’t exist yet.

This is where ADDED _TO_STAGE comes into play

Here’s an example:

child swf code: http://pastie.org/513064

parent swf code: http://pastie.org/513068

when communicating with a parent swf you’ll get always get a compile error if you only test the child. but don’t worry, once you test the parent swf all will work fine. Also, use ADDED _TO_STAGE when referencing the parent swf.
