I need some help with putting flash games onto my phpBB 3.

Post by riddim »

Hey all,

I need some help with putting flash games on my website. I have been scouring the net for about 2 hours now and so far have been unlucky to find anything relevent. I really wanted to add games like worlds hardest game which the embeding code is:

<center><a target=_blank href="http://www.diggygames.com/play-4715-Wor ... html">PLAY Worlds Hardest Game 2</a><br><object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shoc ... n=6,0,29,0" width="700" height="500">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.diggygames.com/swf/the-world ... g-1982.swf">
<param name="quality" value="high">
<embed src="http://www.diggygames.com/swf/the-world ... g-1982.swf" width=700 height=500 align="center" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></embed>
</object><BR><a href="http://www.diggygames.com">Diggy Games</a></center>

So I really want that up with some other games. The problem is I don't know how to. I came accross a mod to enable HTML, but my hoster which is Unlimited MB doesnt allow XSL style sheets for free users. :( . Im not sure what BBcode is. And I have no idea on how to make one. I also wanted to embed things like DIVX webplayer movies etc etc.
Forgive me for being so nooby.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried using the [flash] bbcode?

Yes. I have tried using the FLASH BBcode. No luck :(. But also I have another problem. I cannot edit registered users posts. Nor can I move them. And I am Admin and Global Mod. HELPP! PLZ I have set me to also full admin and full global mod. But when I go to view global moderation and under my name I see. Everything is set to NO. But when I go to all the options. They are all YES.

You need to learn how use use custom BBCodes. For example, using the embed code you posted I created a custom bbcode that plays the game. In your ACP -> Posting -> BBCodes add a new one with the following code:

BBCode usage:

Code: Select all

[game]{URL}[/game]
HTML Replacement:

Code: Select all

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" width="700" height="500">
<param name="movie" value="{URL}">
<param name="quality" value="high">
<embed src="{URL}" width=700 height=500 align="center" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></embed>
</object>
So now to include the game in a post you would simply select the "game" bbcode and paste the full url, in your example that would be http://www.diggygames.com/swf/the-world ... g-1982.swf
