1)make sure the flash player version is correct
Yep, just downloaded it yesterday.
2)check the case of the filename because if you view locally the case does not matter, but viewing online the case must be correct and ftp program sometimes will change the case after uploading.
Just check the file, the case is the same.
3)try publishing as html first then use another system without flash installed to view locally.
I haven’t tried this one yet.
4)as for the garbage character, try changing fonts to a common fontsw and see whether it helps
Font used is Times New Roman (or whatever it’s called) so that shouldn’t be a problem.
I’m wondering if there is something wrong with the way it saved the file. What happened is…I created the file and then saved it. Then I went into publish settings and made sure .html and .swf were checked, and then made some changes (like unchecking the “loop” box) and then I published it. When I went to shut down Flash MX, a box popped up and asked me if I wanted to save the file. Since I had already saved it, I said no. Could that be a problem?
