OPTION 1:<TD> background

This is an easy fix if you're using Flash MX or higher. With the introduction of Flash MX, we have the option to make our flash movies have transparent backgrounds, which allows anything behind it (like a <TD> background) to be seen. In this case, make your movie without any fixed background and go to File -> Publish Settings. Now choose the HTML tab and change the Window Mode: value to be "Transparent Windowless" and publish it. Make sure to copy the object tag from the newly published HTML file to your final HTML file if different. You should notice 2 tags that look like the following:


If those aren't there, then you didn't set the Window Mode correctly. Now take your fixed background and add that as a <TD background="my_flash_background.gif"> to your HTML. You may need to play around with alignment inside your flash movie a bit, but this works great.

» Description:

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
