Your link didn't work for me, so I couldn't see it. But it sounds like the problem is related to focus in the browser. Flash can't receive keypress events in the browser until it has focus. It receives focus normally by a single click on the flash element or tabbing to the flash element as well I believe.
Thank you. This gives me a little bit more 'focus' at least so I know what I'm looking for. Not that it will help you but the link is http://www.rebeccapike.co.uk/RecastingSubjectivity.html
Does anyone else know the answer? Thanks
I just checked your link.... that doesn't seem to work after clicking on it either.
The focus aspect is important if your want the keypresses to be detected by flash, but it should work after the flash element has been given focus by clicking.
It doesn't seem to be, so there is something in your code that needs to be changed. If its working in the test movie mode and not in the browser, then it may be a timing issue between when your code runs and when something has loaded because files tend to load instantly when testing. But its difficult to tell without seeing the code.
BTW... it seems that your swf is either very large or it loads some other large swfs. At least it takes a while on my connection for the browser to become responsive after the page begins to load the first time (firefox/windows).
