Advanced Effect Maker - What to do with the downloaded ZIP file (Legacy)

Now that you've downloaded the "mmgetflashfile" zip file from your personal file folder (if you are a commercial user) or from the applet test window (if you area a free user), what do you do now?

You must first unpack the downloaded zip-file using a software such as Winzip (Windows users), Stuffit expander (Mac users) or similar (both software are shareware and freely downloadable). The zip file will contain two files, one is the SWF file and the other is the HTML file for the Flash applet. YOU NEED BOTH FILES to make the Flash applet work. The HTML file contains the crucial <OBJECT> and <EMBED> tags that you must have to run the applets. They will look something like this inside the file (these are the tags for verticalscroller):

<OBJECT 
classid="clsid
:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" 
codebase="http://download.macromedia.com
/pub/shockwave
/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=5,0,0,0" 
WIDTH=200 HEIGHT=100>
<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="verticalscroller1.swf">
<PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high>
<PARAM NAME=wmode VALUE=opaque>
<PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#ff0000>
<EMBED src="verticalscroller1.swf" quality=high wmode=opaque bgcolor=#ff0000 WIDTH="200" HEIGHT="100"
TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash"
PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave /download/index.cgi ?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash">
</EMBED>
</OBJECT>

This sure looks complicated, but you don't need to worry about this. The only thing you need to do is to copy this text completely, and paste it into the web page that you want to put the applet into.

IMPORTANT! COPY THE WHOLE TEXT BETWEEN THE <OBJECT> TAGS.

You must then put the SWF file into the same folder/directory location as where you have your page.

IMPORTANT! The SWF file MUST be where your HTML page with these tags is located!

Now that you have copied the <OBJECT> AND <EMBED> tags into your HTML page, you can throw away the HTML file that went with the downloaded zip file.
