Hi guys.

Im in dire need of help.

Im trying to embed a flash game into my website.

Although the game dosnt fit into the designated area I want it in.

And when i try to resize it with the width height properties, It rezies it to size, but then cuts off sides of the game. So most of the game isnt viewable.

Those code im using for example is :

<embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="800" height="580"></embed>

Changed to :

<embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="100%" height="580"></embed>

The above code makes it fit perfectly, Problem is, the game inside is cut off on the edges.

Is there anyways I can manipulate the code to say, "shrink" the game to fit into the specified dimenions so all of it is atleast viewable???

Thank you in advance :D

you would need to take the height out,

[code]<embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="100%"></embed>

should work fine in ie, firefox will probably want an explicit height and width value set.
best thing you can do is find the width you have to work with and drop the size (keeping h/w ratio)

for example if you have 400px width to work with you would want

[code]<embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="400" height="290"></embed>

[edit] oops >.> forum stripped out my embed tags
