[Pro] Flash Problem

When I drop my flash swf into box it reduces to unreadable. I made it work by enlarging box to a size that is enormous. It works fine in Safari & Chrome but explorer it’s a mess. None the less I have never had this problem with flash before where the visual is reduced, and now it is doing this on 3 pages. I have done everything I can in my html xml settings to no avail. You can view this looking correct in Safari @ http://www.americanchopperparts.net and an other @ http://www.americanchopperparts.net/lowestpriceguaranty.html Though it looks OK it is not right what I had to do to get this and exploer feels the same way obviously. If you can view these same pages in explorer and witness what happens I would wholeheartedly appreciate some help for I am lost.

Did you use command “fit content to box”?

Sorry, I was wrong. I did not try that for it is not available to my knowledge. I can go to “control” fit box to content that does nothing. Please tell me how to perform fit content to box for I have considered this and could not find it.

Well, I don’t know if this is exactly what you’re looking for, but when you control click the graphic, the first menu item is Graphic and that has a sub-menu. In there there’s not a fit content to box, but there’s a scale to box, scale and pad, and scale and trim. That might be what is being talked about.

Ok, for some reason it happens to me most of the time I create
animations in Adobe Flash, but in Easy Web Animator 2 it never
happen. In Flash I set the document dimensions lets said 200x100,
them I paste on FW and goes like 225x120, I will go deeper into this
and get back to you ASP.

Easy, click on the html box where you put the flash item, right click
on mouse a pop up menu shows few options, select “fit box to
content”. Try and let me know, Julio

The second link was mis-spelled. Should be…http://www.americanchopperparts.net/lowpriceguaranty.html

P.S This is a tough one!

BTW guaranty should be spelled guarantee - at least it is in the UK where you guys got your language from.

that’s the good thing about being where we are from we can spell the way we want. URL’s are spelled in many different ways by the way, so as to give you optimum search engine capability.
Respectfully I am looking for good advice. Please

What I am seeing in your code is no less than 7 references to the menu.swf - that is 7 instances of it on your page lowpriceguaranty.html - surely that cannot be correct?

I would start by getting rid of the other 6 and then see what it looks like.

Do you also have alternate content for iOS users?

What I meant about the spelling was that you use it as Guarantee elsewhere and is it not better to be consistent?

Two quick things. Why do all the rollover’s say ‘Welcome’ and secondly make sure you give credit to “Theory of a Deadman - Bad Girlfriend” for using their song before they sue you.

In fact you should probably check out copyright law to make sure you can even do that.

Yeah, one last thing too is make sure you remove that ‘Resize your browser to a completely astronomical waste of screen-space by blowing up this browser window full-size’ Freeway action you’re using.

That is annoying when sites use that and is completely unnecessary.

I can see what you mean. The blue area is your SWF: http://cl.ly/5Xi7

And here it is in Explorer (8): http://cl.ly/5Wh9

From your original email I was expecting the text in the SWF to be unreadable, instead what’s happening is the SWF isn’t being made transparent so it’s blocking other content.

Did you make the Flash file yourself? If so then you need to either make the menu larger on the stage, or make the stage smaller so the menu just fits inside it. It’s not the end of the world if you don’t have access to the original Flash file (though doing the above would be the best solution performance wise). Select the item containing the SWF in Freeway and go to the Item>Extended menu. In the dialog that appears, make sure that the Embed tab is selected and click New. In the new dialog that appears enter the text after the colons in the respective fields:

Name: wmode
Value: transparent

That should do it!

Just thought I would post Bobby’s response email to me so everyone can see and make their own opinions about helping Bobby in the future.

4 things…

Who do you think you are?

Do you always intervene, uninvited with subjects that do not pertain to an important thread?

Do you think you really know what the fuck you are talking about? The answer is NO! You need to be taught to keep your opinions to yourself you arrogant dick.

You know nothing about the music or what the situation is at the present where the site is only displayed for dealers and possible help. It is far from complete and gets parked. Furthermore it’s a toy for my fellow team members that are bikers.

Listen up Gumby! My father taught me at a young age to be courteous to others and mind my own business. This graduated into the United States Military for 6 years as a special ops combat diver. Do you know what that is? We are disciplined until we get a drift of the likes of you. You are what we call a bad current. I have my doubts you maintained an MOS for you would of had your face eaten off in the military with your sideways attitude.

I was born and raised in chicago and have been checking you out. You really think your poo, poo, does not stink!

Please Note: You are not being threatened in any way shape or form but we are hoping you will be taught a lesson for if I see your arrogant gumby ass where it should not be or you respond with one bit of negative arrogance to me again… We are going to have a talk in Chicago.

I suggest, and only a suggestion you apologize on that thread for acting like an ass. I am going to talk to the office about you for sure. I already got an e-mail from one person about your comments so you must be infamous.

Get a life Gumby and study and ask for facts before you make erroneous accusations. If you do not like full screen stick it where the sun don’t shine. It is none of your business in what designers use as long as your not involved. That would be an impossibility from the lowest form from what we have seen.

Wake up and smell the key board man your code is hap hazard at best!

Should there be a ban-hammer Softpress for threatening other board members? This seems unacceptable to make threats against me if I say anything again when I offered a suggestion and saved him from getting sued.

No intent to offend you Bobby, just was trying to help out by saving you money and offering my opinion on the expanding browser window. I did not see this kind of response as necessary and I apologize if I offended you in any way. Best of luck with your site and I will not post in your threads again.

Sorry about this Dan. You’re among the most helpful people on the list. And the things you offer on your site are just fantastic. Glad you posted this so that we all know who’d we be dealing with if he shows up again.
