Have you tried getting the current flash plugin for firefox from adobe.com? If you have Flash installed for FF, what's you're HTML code?

Yes I added the plug-in, and it still won't play properly. The logo dosen't appear at all and the animated text is all messed up and loops over and over it's self.

On another note the text looks horrible in the other browsers (I.E. and Netscape), choppy and unsmooth, while it looks great in flash cs3 where it was created as a graphic?

Here is the testing site: ezdezignscom

Here is the code:

Code: [ Select ]
<body>
<table width="800" height="600" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
 <tr>
  <td valign="top"><table width="200" border="0" align="center">

    <td><script type="text/javascript">

    </script>

There's no object tag at ezdesigns[dot]com, nor is there a Ground Power_intro_2d.swf on the root directory. Where exactly can we view the issue?

Not sure on your question. I just use the FF Flash plugin from Adobe for whatever the current version happens to be and it's working fine. I do see what you are saying about the text looking pretty crappy. Did you embed the fonts? If not, try that.

The other thing is are you using Flash to publish the HTML or writing it yourself? When I publish the HTML in CS3 it doesn't look like your code.

First of all in the <head> tags you should have code that looks similar to this:

HTML Code: [ Select ]
<script language="javascript"> AC_FL_RunContent = 0; </script>
<script language="javascript"> DetectFlashVer = 0; </script>
<script src="AC_RunActiveContent.js" language="javascript"></script>
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
<!--
// -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Globals
// Major version of Flash required
var requiredMajorVersion = 9;
// Minor version of Flash required
var requiredMinorVersion = 0;
// Revision of Flash required
var requiredRevision = 45;
// -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// -->
</script>
  1. <script language="javascript"> AC_FL_RunContent = 0; </script>
  2. <script language="javascript"> DetectFlashVer = 0; </script>
  3. <script src="AC_RunActiveContent.js" language="javascript"></script>
  4. <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
  5. <!--
  6. // -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  7. // Globals
  8. // Major version of Flash required
  9. var requiredMajorVersion = 9;
  10. // Minor version of Flash required
  11. var requiredMinorVersion = 0;
  12. // Revision of Flash required
  13. var requiredRevision = 45;
  14. // -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  15. // -->
  16. </script>


Then in the body the code Flash generates looks like this:

HTML Code: [ Select ]
<!--url's used in the movie-->
<!--text used in the movie-->
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
<!--
if (AC_FL_RunContent == 0 || DetectFlashVer == 0) {
   alert("This page requires AC_RunActiveContent.js.");
} else {
   var hasRightVersion = DetectFlashVer(requiredMajorVersion, requiredMinorVersion, requiredRevision);
   if(hasRightVersion) {  // if we've detected an acceptable version
      // embed the flash movie
      AC_FL_RunContent(
         'codebase', 'http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,45,0',

         ); //end AC code
   } else {  // flash is too old or we can't detect the plugin
      var alternateContent = 'Alternate HTML content should be placed here.'
         + 'This content requires the Adobe Flash Player.'
         + '<a href=http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflash/>Get Flash</a>';
      document.write(alternateContent);  // insert non-flash content

Hi, thanks for you help on this..really! It's so weird,I did use Flash to publish the HTML do I just leave the settings on default when I publish it? I've never had this problem before with Flash, although if it matters any I've only ever used MX 2004 pro before! Also I'm embedding the .swf file in Adobe Dreamweaver CS3, could Dreamweaver be changing the code?? Also I haven't embedded the fonts, I'll try that too!

Hi, I published it again, and opened it up in Text Pad, and the code looks exactly like the code you posted? Hmmm, I think maybe Dreamweaver is scrambling the code???? I guess I'll just go in and fix it....and try again!

Thanks for the help....

lol Gotta love dreamweaver.
Maybe one of these days Adobe will get it right.

As far as publishing the HTML the only thing I do other than the default is check the option to detect flash version.

yea, i seen dreamweaver f**ing up code :D

Also i seen some weird displayings when you resize the font size in the browser by holding down CTRL and rolling the mouse wheel.
I got myself fooled two times because of that on both IE and FF :p

For ATNO/TW...Thanks for the help before, I have one more problem maybe you could help me with. On the logo I created(ezdezignsDOTcom), I"m trying to get the water to flow through the pipe and stay blue untill it reaches the end. I'm using a mask(graphic) to show the blue pipe under the white pipe to make it look like water is flowing, however I can only mask the pipe on the straight part of it and not the curves because I can't bend the graphic, thus giving the little block of blue that is visable now?? any suggestions using a mask would be greatly appreciated!
