Flash - problem - maximised projector?

Posted on 2006-03-20

I know you're all screaming do a search...FS commands!! etc., but this isn't quite so straightforward. I have a swf which I want to run from a CD. No problems. The file is built at 800 x 600 and must stay at that res to avoid jaggies and artifacting. So - I can't simply fullscreen it. My idea was to have another projector file which was just white, running fullscreen, that called  my swf file and displayed it in the middle.

But - if I load using loadmovie - it loses the paths as it's no longer on level0....if I load it using loadmovienum (0) then it runs, but it effectively replaces the oriiginal file so I'm no better off....I can't use html as I don't want users to be forced to have the flash plug-in installed.....
