Hello Webmaster gurus! =)

Was wondering if there are problems with presentation if flash is written in "action script 2" and user has 1.

Does anyone know how old is action script 2 and whether users might have problems with it?

Would appreciate your response!

Got a small 150x100 flash to play.

ActionScript is internal to Flash, the end users won't know the difference. When you set your publish settings to actionScript 2 or 1, and you attempt to publish the SWF, Flash will warn you if there are actionscript 3 functions that are not supported by actionscript 2.0. Otherwise, it will convert or use the code to compile the SWF.

It's a little different for the Flash player version in publish settings. If you set it to some old version compatibility you may get a similar warning and will have to adjust the publish settings to a higher version. But if, say, your SWF requires the Flash 8 player and a visitor has Flash 7 or older, they will get a prompt to install the latest version to see this Flash.
