esdebon, I know about this option.
I mean another thing.
1) setup there Direct mode
2) write init code and request context3d with retreiving driver info
3) press ctrl+enter and you will see that RenderMode it's SOFTWARE.
As I undestand -authplay.dll that you see after pressing ctrl+enter do not have hardware render mode. Only software. When you publish to swf it's work fine in swf. But not in the test player
Note well, that if you upgrade the playerglobal.swc, FlashPlayer.exe and FlashPlayerDebug.exe For Flash CS6 (and 5 I believe) it does NOT change the player that Flash uses to "test" with (i.e. CTRL+Enter). The debug Player will be updated though (i.e. CTRL+Shift+Enter).
I updated to FP 11.9 but CTRL+Enter still uses 11.4 as is revealed by tracing "Capabilities.version".
- CTRL+Enter -> 11.4
- CTRL+Shift+Enter -> 11.9
- double click SWF -> 11.9
- in Firefox browser -> 11.9
As long as I use the Debug player (i.e. CTRL+Shift+Enter) or choose Publish from the file menu the code is OK both in the stand alone Player when you double click a SWF, and in a browser.
I have looked for the hidden Flash player all over (registry and the hdd) i think it is hidden in the Flash application somewhere.
