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:
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:
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
Congratulations ranfirefly! I’ve bought a few of your files and they were great!
I even tried to create the same instance on my child to bypass the compil error but didn’t dojust 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:
