    IE truncates dynamic text boxes AS3

    I did try that but it didnt work. I did get it fixed however. Notes: The bug occurred in 2 versions of Firefox, 1 version of IE and 1 version of Safari. As stated previously, generic text didnt fix the bug and border mode showed that there was no change to the size of the text box. Remember, this was happening only in the left side tables. THE FIX (dramatic isnt it?) The only way that I was able to fix the issue was to increase the size of the text boxes drastically, about 5 times their original size. I dont know why border mode didnt show any actual alteration to the text boxes, but there was indeed a width change to them. Not sure why this occurred, im just glad its over with ).

    IE truncates dynamic text boxes AS3

    Update: Still no fix. IE version that displays bug is [font=arial, sans-serif][size=2]v 8.0.6001.18702.[/font] [font=arial, sans-serif][size=2] [/font] [font=arial, sans-serif][size=2]I attempted a generic text. Arial instead of OCRA Extended.[/font] [font=arial, sans-serif][size=2] [/font] [font=arial, sans-serif][size=2]After enabling border mode for text boxes, I was able to determine that the text boxes are not being altered. The text itself is being altered.[/font] [font=arial, sans-serif][size=2] [/font] [font=arial, sans-serif][size=2]No love. Any help would be appreciated.[/font]
  3. Hi all, Ive got a web game up and it looks fine in all the browsers except for IE. In two of the menus, the left side dynamic text boxes are truncated, whereas the center and right side text boxes are fine. The game is written in AS3. The text fields were not programatically created, I made them with flash and dragged them into position on stage. Im not sure how to go about fixing this. I created arrays for both of the truncated text fields and defined the height and width of each array element in the hope that that would work, but still no luck. Anybody have any idea why this is happening or, more importantly, how to fix it? Thanks

    I finished my first game...now what?

    Thanks for all the info. It looks like I have a bit to process. Will update and notify everyone when the game goes live.
  5. Greetings all. I'm new to the forums and looking forward to learning all that I can from them. Like the topic says, I just finished my first flash game and I am not exactly sure what to do next. 1. I know that I need to encrypt/obfuscate and test for bugs caused by the encryption software. 2. I need to test how the swf displays in multiple browsers. 2a. How exactly does one test their game in multiple browsers? Is there software that I need for that? 2b. What browsers should I be testing for? 3. Test the game online. My plans for a personal website are not yet outlined as I really would like to get several titles completed before concentrating on a website. A temporary testing web page will be fine for my immediate needs. Recommendation for a free or low priced web host? 4. Post the game to all relevant game sites. Any info that could help would be greatly appreciated as I am SO READY to get rid of this game and start the next one. Thanks.
