Ok, that's the splash page coded up and ready to go. Next we'll make the 'screenchooser' page...

Take the 400 x 400 movie you made, and open it up in flash.
In turn right click each of the 3 buttons, choose actions, and select 'getURL' for each from the actions list.
In the space provided type:

    javascript:fullWindow()  >>>> for the fullscreen button
    javascript:popWindow() >>>> for the pop up button
    javascript:normWindow() >>>> for the normal button

Save and publish.

Then, open up the HTML page you have just created from this and drop it into your HTML editor
Inbetween the <HEAD> and </HEAD> tags write/copy this:
NOTE - javascript is caSeSenSItIve!! be carefull

<script language="javascript">
function fullWindow(){            
fullWin=window.open('main2.html', 'fullWin', 'scrollbars=no, menubar=no, toolbar=no, status=no');

function popWindow(){ popWin=window.open('main.html', 'popWin', 'scrollbars=yes, menubar=yes, toolbar=yes, status=yes'); window.opener.location=('exit.html'); window.close(); }
function normalWindow (){ window.opener.location=('main.html'); window.close; } </script>

Finally open your main site, go to file, choose 'Save As', and call it 'main2' (or whatever you its allready called, but - 2) and click ok. This will make a duplicate of your site. Publish.
Drop 'main2' into your HTML editor and inbetween the and tags write/copy this:

<script language="javascript">
function fitscreen(){

Ok, thats it.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
