Is Flash 11 (wmode=direct) Enabled? Jul. 14th, 2011 @ 07:30 PM Reply

Just a quick question: Flash 11 has hardware 3d, but the html markup requires wmode=direct to be set in the flash variables or you will be forced to use software rendering. When I give http://js.ngfiles.com/ng_publish.js a quick glance it does not appear to be ready for Flash 11 yet, but I could be wrong. Old fashioned Flash 10 style wmode: 'transparent' etc will not enable hardware 3d when we all start posting Flash 11 games, killing the framerate as you might expect.

Q: Will Newgrounds add wmode=direct to their swf embed code?

Thanks and keep up the wonderful work!

I'm pretty sure I saw a game on NG using stage3d some time ago, and if you open the source of any flash page you'll see wmode is set to direct.

I think Kongregate has also started allowing wmode = direct.
