Hey everyone!

We just deployed a change to Flash files that allows you to display a custom image instead of the plain old ‘click here for a full screen preview’.

If you go to your existing items you’ll be able to upload a 590×300 JPEG to replace the generic grey full screen preview graphic. Hopefully this’ll make your files more attractive!

Enjoy!

That’s great! :) But… I wish there was an option to upload an SWF for the Full Screen Preview link. When I’ve tried to do that with the preview file, it doesn’t get linked to the full screen page provided in the preview ZIP (index.html) – I would link it to my own site, but that would make the SWF availble for downloading, and I don’t know how to encrypt the SWF ’s.

You are not allowed to link to any site outside of Flashden, even your own, unless your file uses server-side scripts which can not be run on Flashden.

I tried editing the description to one of my files today, and an error kept occuring (I was supposed to upload the preview image). Problem is that I tried uploading the preview image but I got the same error. It seems that the Save Changes button doesn’t have anything to do with the preview image, the Submit for Review button does. So right now I don’t know how to edit the description to my files. Can anybody please help? Thank you :)

i hope they don`t allow swf`s as i reckon that could get pretty annoying fast.

Yeah, that one would probably get abused wouldn’t it?

I’m getting the same error as fifty_tons. I tried editing just the details of the file and its saying I must choose a preview file.
