There are flash games which are made with unity software and converted into flash, or something like that, and if wmode value isn't set in your site, or maybe especially for those games, well those won't load and will give you errors.

How to do that, I don't know, but I'm pretty sure that google knows the secret?

Thanks for your respond, and I googled it but I only found some pages talking about mobile apps, forgot to say that mochi had the same problem and they added this code to fix it: (pluginspage="macromedia(dot)com/go/getflashplayer" wmode="direct") but I'm not sure how to apply it to wordpress.

check out this link http://www.ilike2flash.com/2012/05/w...-starling.html

i'm not sure if editting index php will solve for all games, or it must be done for each game individually.. :/

As most say "The solution is very simple. Set the wmode attribute in the HTML to "direct". I have included my HTML code below as an example. I have embedded the swf using the swfobject. " so it should be easy?

I found this page gives a good runtime on available wmode parameters for different versions of flash:
labs.almerblank.com/2011/03/the-wmode-embed-parameter-de-mystified/

As long as you don't need other HTML elements to overlap above your games (like navigational menus) you can simply set wmode=direct for all your games and thus only adjust the template that renders the play page.
However, I personally would shy away from doing that if possible, cause wmode=direct can result in performance penalties for some games. Turning it on only for games that really need it is therefore better. But that means that you need to maintain some kind of flag for each game and render the wmode parameter based on that flag in your template, which might or might not be possible with the plugin you use.

@user22
That is the way to fix it in HTML templates, but I don't think that I can do it in wordpress

@Galaxy
The page was very informative & I'm not using any plugin to feed games, I put them myself,
handpicked games
I'll contact the theme provider and see if he can help.
