    Javascript Slider with SWF Support?

    Hi all, apologies in advance for my noobness. I have been building a website that I plan to integrate a large Javascript image slider into. I would like to have the sliding "images" as swf files. The main inspiration for this was the website for Blizzard Entertainment, blizzard.com. I have tried looking in and out of the code and it looks simple enough, but it's juts beyond my skill level to decipher it. I plan to also have a fallback for mobile browsers and viewers with no flash support. If anyone can point me in the right direction on how I can go about doing this it would be much appreciated.

    Isn't it best to look for a jquery plugin for this? I used to use swf's for animations but those days are long gone - its not just mobile support you'd need for swfs it's apple devices as well that don't support the use of flash.

    I honestly don't know. I've been looking at different sliders on the internet but I haven't found any with swf support.

    I dislike using flash as well but the market this website is reaching is 99% PC gamers, who will be viewing the website on a PC.

    You can usually put any content in most slider plugins nowadays. Basically it’s just a list of items that is animated in some way. What’s in these items doesn’t matter. Shadowbox, Fancybox (or its successor Fancybox 2), jQuery Cycle (or also its successor, Cycle 2), and Scrollable from jQuery Tools come to mind.
