Edit Your Templates

The mobile templates provided with Flash CS3 are a handy little time-saver - it’s nice to not have to constantly set the stage size, player version, etc., every time you start in on a new .fla file. However, if you’re using the templates for Japanese Phones, you’ll want to edit them: for some reason, all of the templates include the following code in the first frame: // this ActionScript sets your content to be full screen fscommand2(“FullScreen”, true); This would be really handy - if Japanese phones supported full-screen mode. While it’s possible that some of the newer devices with a version of Flash Lite higher than 1.1 do support full-screen mode, none of the phones with FL 1.1 do, and that code is included in those templates too.

If you’re on a PC, you can find the templates in the following directory: Program FilesAdobeAdobe Flash CS3enConfigurationTemplates Not sure where the templates are stored on Macs, or if this is a problem for the Mac templates. Also, if you create your Flash file from Device Central, this code doesn’t pop up in your newly-created .fla file.
