If I understand your question, you have the statement
var gameFile = "<swf path>";

Open in new window

somewhere in your javascript code (where <swf path> is the actual path). Correct?

Is there only one embed tag in your html page?

If the answers to both questions above are "yes," the following javascript code should accomplish your task.
document.getElementsByTagName("embed")[0].src = gameFile;
