Fullscreen with Standalone SWF

Hi, I'm new to these forums, but I've done plenty of searching and can't find an answer. I can't figure out how to get the "Fullscreen" button on my standalone swf to work. When you click it, it does nothing. I didn't find any publish settings that would fix this. Is there something I can do to make fullscreen an option for viewers? OR Is there a way to get rid of the button, since it doesn't do anything.

Here is an example from our website: Art Room @ The Rabbit Party

p.s. I know the site is pretty weak. It's undergoing an overhaul as we speak.

If you read your source code between the two different versions you have on your website you will see why one works and the other doesn't.

The parameter AllowFullScreen = "True" is the clue.

Personally I don't like the code of either of the entries you have.

Correct or lets say better, is to enter your Flash code like this:

 <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" id="ArtRoom" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="640" height="480" data="_swf/ArtRoom.swf">
         <param name="quality" value="high">
         <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always">
         <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true">
         <param name="menu" value="false">
         <param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF">
         <param name="movie" value="_swf/ArtRoom.swf">
         Download <a title="

  </object>

Hey 360Zen,
I'm no expert but you might want to also limit the ability users can zoom in and out of your panos with the settings like the following:

The Tilt min is how far person can look down
The Tilt max is for up


The ones you want are the FOV Min and Max

Check out the settings and they will enhance you users virtual expeirence.





It has been said the the FOV for the human eye is 90, but I could be wrong. But Smooth can help you in this area. If you are in need of tutoring (paid of course) then he is your guy.

Ok, I've implemented your version of the code, but what I had in the header remains the same. Is that right?
Something is preventing the flash from being displayed.

Also, I will definitely adjust the FOV settings. Hadn't even crossed my mind yet.

{edit} NVM, I've figured it out. Thanks again for your help.
