Edited: Doesn't work so well for zOMG! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This extension does not work so well for me. My screen resolution is 1920x1080, the flash game does go in full screen but the game is in a small rectangle of about 1024x600 and the extra space is just black.

The game is called zOMG! from: http://bit.ly/1f7ymXH

This is actually the only flash game I play, I've never been a fan of flash games, it was a test anyway.

Explanations

The game is behind a login. The design of SwiffOut prevents it from working with websites that require an authentification. This is the issue with Facebook but any website with authentification is subject to the same issue.

One problem in perfectness Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hi, i got this problem with new kingdom rush in armored games. It worked perfectly, but then i exited through esc and now everytime i reload game it starts to flicker like loading, but it isnt downloading anything or cant download it fully. It worked very well first time so i wanted to know is there way to fix this? Other games what i've tested have worked well.

Hi,
I have the same issue on the new kingdom rush even though I didn't press esc, so this isn't something you could have avoid ihmo. There is something is the loading of the game that seem to cause this. It's too bad that it occured on such a great game.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have read over the reviews and some of the problems individuals were having on "login sites" such as FB.

according to your answer to one reviewer, because these sites require a login, the app will not work because it opens the prog in a separate window.

does this separate window not carry the cookies that send a message back to the prog indicating you are logged in?

ideally, i'm looking for an add-on that allows performance full screen for flash...which i understand may be a pipe dream and may be constrained by the programming itself.

ideally, i would like the least amount of scaling, yet maximize the screen, from the description, this is what your app does...or am i not following the details correctly.

i had noticed another user, playing "hidden chronicles" a FB game that gave the add-on excellent reviews, so once again i remain a bit confused.

as my review is in question form, i have given it a 5 star rating as i see nothing else that compares at this point.

Thanks for review

You did understand really well SwiffOut behavior. All your description exactly match how SwiffOut works.

Some games work if the connection is handled within the game or by a token given when the flash game load others won't. It depends. The window I open is not a browser, so it doesn't send or have any cookies. I didn't though about that issue when creating SwiffOut, but I'm not sure it would have changed anything :
It would be difficult to do better than what SwiffOut does today. The only way I can think of would be to create a small browser dedicated to playing flash game full screen, but you would have to use that instead of your browser to play fullscreen. Would you ?

Not working for me for Facebook game Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Running Firefox 17.0.1 on Windows 8. Start Casino game in Facebook. Activate SwiffOut. Blank black screen though right click will bring up menu. I suspect that activating SwiffOut uses the tab the game is running in to go to your site and disconnects the game.

How Swiffout works

SwiffOut works by creating a new window and loading the game inside it. It doesn't load games from the browser, so this is a problem with websites that require login like Facebook. SwiffOut doesn't work everywhere but when it works it's really the best full screen you can get.

Try it on armorgames or kongregate to check if everything is working correctly if you still want to try.

The navigation to the other website is required so that the game will not be loaded twice (it's not here to bug you ). Usually SwiffOut will try to warn you if something doesn't work, but not all errors are detectables.

I really appreciate the quick response, it's very clear and now I understand better the way it works, definitely I'll keep on using it!

absolument super et en plus compatibles avec firefox 12 bêta contrairement a flash games maximizer il est beaucoup plus rapide vraiment mieux en tout point indispensable pour toutes les animations flash et vitale pour les amateur de jeux flash.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Pretty decent when I tried it on some of my favorite flash games but its terrible for Tibia when using their flash client. without custom resizing the game is incredible tiny even in full screen. also that game makes full use of right clicking which doesnt work with swiffout. But otherwise minus the custom resolution issue and some games its pretty good.

Would you be kind and issue a new version?

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

If I can get this thing to work with Kongregate's progress tracking widgets it'll be awesome. I might be able to drop the second installation of Firefox I made to run games in, since half the reason I did that was to use the mousewheel.

I'm thinking it might be possible to integrate it with FlashBlock so that you don't have to exit the page to unload the browser's copy of the swf. (It currently doesn't recognize FlashBlock'd items; I don't know what they look like internally though.)

I get squished things in fullscreen too; somehow, it ignores ATI Catalyst's rescaling settings completely and goes for fully stretched, which can be icky on a widescreen monitor.

I believe someone else recommended something like choosing the next highest highest resolution (optionally, fitting your aspect) that can fit the game and centering it or anchoring it at your choice of edge would be great. It would also make it work better with odd sized games.

Would an option to pipe the games through one of Adobe's standalone player executables be useful?

Flash game do not loading Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Don't work !!!

Could you be a little bit more precise ?

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This was very nearly the answer to my prayers. Unfortunately, it squashes some of my favorite games in a way I don't like. For instance, on the add-on homepage you've got cursed treasure filling the screen, but when I gave it a shot it squashed to about 2/3 what I'm used to. Get it to zoom to the closest edge without warping, and it would be an absolute winner! I'm also not sure if Kongregate.com badges and achievements will activate while playing fullscreen. For the games that work, I'll use this every time!

Details

SwiffOut switches the resolution to the closest of the game, it seems that your monitor or video card do not support a resolution that closely match this game. I try to not resize games as it sometimes causes scaling issues. I'll try to add an option when I'll have time.
Thanks for useful feedback.

Thank you Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for the quick response. Here's hoping to reinstall Swiffout again. God bless you.

This program is AWESOME! Trying to view flash videos on widescreen TV hooked up to computer. They were small until I got this program. My kids are going to LOVE it! Thanks!

This is a wonderful addon for anyone who plays flash games. I recently got hooked on Gardens of Time on Facebook. This little addon makes the game play experience faster, smoother and far more enjoyable.

It actually dumps the flash program into a tiny executable program which runs it full screen, rather than running it in the browser with all of its overhead.

Well done!

Does just what it says on the tin.I'd like to see functionality extend to flash video as well. Flash has a very poor resizer for full screen. Many people experience full screen stuttering because of it (especially at high desktop resolutions)Anyway, thanks for the nice plugin.
