Hi Armor Games Members,

I thought some of you were interested how to play the games on Armor Games in fullscreen-mode for a better gaming experience (1680x1050-GamePad-Fancy-Pants-Action rocks!), so I tried around a bit and came up with several possibilities:

Play games in fullscreen-mode with "Internet Explorer 7" (might be compatible with earlier versions as well.)
1. Open the page of the game you want to play in fullscreen-mode.
2. Click „View“ in the Menu of Internet Explorer.
3. Click „Source“.
4. A window with lots of code will pop up, but you just click „Edit“, then „Find“ or simply press „CTRL+F“
5. Type .swf“ (without quotes, but with point).
6. Click „Find Next“.
7. You will get 3 results, they all are okay.
8. Copy the text between the quotes of one of them, usually begins with „/files/games/“, then the name of the game, a number and the .swf-ending. For „Sonny 1“ it's „/files/games/sonny-505.swf“.
9. Close the window so you get back to Internet Explorer.
10. Paste the the text you just copied behind „http://armorgames.com“, so it looks like this: „http://armorgames.com/files/games/sonny-505.swf“
11. Copy this in the address-bar of Internet Explorer and press enter.
12. Now click „View“ in the menu Internet Explorer, then „Full Screen“, or press F11.
You can now play the game in fullscreen-mode!
In some older versions of the Internet Explorer you might not get a full fullscreen-mode, because some bars
are still visible. In Internet Explorer 7 however, the bars hide after a little waiting-time while in fullscreen-mode.

Play games in fullscreen-mode with "Mozilla Firefox 3" (might be compatible with earlier versions as well.)
1. Get the Firefox add-on „Full Full Screen“ here: "Download Full Fullscreen". Don't worry, it's free and has no spyware/adware/viruses/etc. in it.
2. Click on „Tools“ in the Firefox Menu.
3. Click on Add-ons and go to the „Extensions“-tab.
4. Select „Full Fullscreen“ and click „Options“
5. Disable everything but  and click on „OK“, now close the add-ons window.
6. Open the page of the game you want to play in fullscreen-mode.
7. Click „View“ in the Menu of Firefox.
8. Click „Page Source“ or press „CTRL+U“
9. A window with lots of code will pop up, but you just click „Edit“, then „Find“ or „Search“ or simply press „CTRL+F“
10. Type „.swf“ (without quotes, but with point).
11. You will get 3 Results, but they all are okay.
12. Copy the text between the quotes, usually begins with „/files/games/“, then the name of the game, a number and the .swf-ending. For „Sonny 1“ it's „/files/games/sonny-505.swf“
13. Close the window so you get back to Firefox.
14. Paste the the text you just copied behind „http://armorgames.com“, so it looks like this: „http://armorgames.com/files/games/sonny-505.swf“
15. Copy this in the address-bar of Firefox and press enter.
16. Click on „View“ in the Firefox menu and click on „Full Screen“ or press "F11".
You can now play the game in fullscreen-mode!
In some older versions of "Firefox" the option "Hide Scroll Bar" in the options of "Full Fullscreen" might be avaible. In that case, enable it.

Faster way to find the ".swf"-files of a game
1. Open the page of the game you want to play in fullscreen-mode.
2. The address of the page should begin with "http://armorgames.com/play/", followed by a number (505 for "Sonny 1") and the name of the game. Put the number behind the name and separate both with a hyphen. ("sonny-505" for "Sonny 1")
3. Write ".swf" (without quotes, but with point) behind this. ("sonny-505.swf" for "Sonny 1")
4.In front of this, write "http://armorgames.com/files/games/". ("http://armorgames.com/files/games/sonny-505.swf" for "Sonny 1")
Now you have the address of the game's .swf-file.
You can do this instead of step 1 - 10 in the "Internet Explorer"-guide or step 6 - 14 in "Mozilla Firefox"-guide.
This doesn't work for some games (e.g. "The Fancy Pants Adventure World 2")

Please note that some games might have pixelated graphics, because the graphics have to be stretched (e.g. "GemCraft") or won't go into fullscreen-mode and instead stay in standard-size (e.g. "Shift 2").

List of some popular games

- Age of War - age-of-war-616.swf (no errors, amazing graphic quality!)
- Ball Revamped 5: Synergy - ball-revamped-5-syne-38.swf (no errors)
- Bubble Tanks 2 - bubble-tanks-2-1920.swf (Only HeroInteractive-Banner and loading-bar pixelated, amazing graphic quality!)
- Dark Cut 2 - dark-cut-2-353.swf (stays in standard-size, not centered)
- Fancy Pants Adventures: World 1 - fancy-pants-adventur-301.swf (no errors)
- Fancy Pants Adventures: World 2 - the-fancy-pants-adve-553.swf (some graphics pixelated)
- Four Second Fury - four-second-fury-44.swf (no errors)
- Four Second Frenzy - four-second-frenzy-14.swf (no errors)
- Four Second Firestorm - four-second-firestor-777.swf (some graphics pixelated)
- Free Rider 2 - free-rider-2-785.swf (stays in standard-size, camera doesn't work properly)
- Hedgehog Launch - hedgehog-launch-1760.swf (Some background-graphics pixelated)
- Indestruc2Tank - indestruc2tank-28.swf (stays in standard-size)
- Last Stand 2 - the-last-stand-2-1443.swf (Some graphics pixelated)
- Pillage the Village - pillage-the-village-1426.swf Fullscreen blocked
- Portal The Flash Version - portal-the-flash-ver-107.swf (Only a few graphics pixelated)
- SHIFT - shift-751.swf (stays in standard-size, pause-/credit-window visible at the side)
- SHIFT 2 - shift-2-964.swf (stays in standard-size, windows visible at the side)
- SHIFT 3 - shift-3-1846.swf (no errors)
- Sonny - sonny-505.swf (stretched when not using 4:3 aspect ratio, amazing graphic quality!)
- Territory WAR - territory-war-279.swf (Camera doesn't work properly)

Also, writing this long text wasn't easy for me (english is not my first language), I tried to make no mistakes, but I sure did some, so, if you find one please tell me about it.
Thanks!

My friend says he has got problems with some of the quotes, so I edited it... Hope it's fixed now.
We really need an Edit-button...

Sorry for messing it up twice - I forgot to replace the second quotes... Could a mod delete the first two posts?

This was perfect, and works great on Firefox 3. Now I just need to play everything on that list!

Although, now that I think about it, you don't need to use the extension all the time. You could just open some of the .swf files in the browser, which will then stretch to fit.

That's right, in Firefox 3 it hides the bars without the extension, but in version 2 you needed the add-on - I didn't know that myself until I tried it a few minutes before. Thanks for making me notice, and also, thanks for the compliment :)

I have something very important to add. I've used this trick several times to download games that you can't seem to download anywhere else. It's nice having gemcraft and free rider 2 available if the internet ever goes out. Anyone else in Florida waiting for the cane to hit?

Anyways, it's ironic that your post is awesome and the last paragraph is the one with the (minor) error in it. When you said "...but I sure did some, so, if..." you should have said "...but I'm sure I had some. So if..." instead.

These two errors are minor and common among bilingual people. You only need this level of correctness in writing, as if you had said it aloud no one would mind. I'll try to explain them if there's some confusion.

Error #1: The easiest way for me to explain this is you would never say "I sure." You would instead say "I'm sure."

Error #2: Commas are useful, but casual writing structure is different than formal which you used (potential lecture material?). Essentially in this casual environment you only need enough commas to eliminate confusion.

Would you prefer "We were turning right but we had to wait for traffic to stop talking." or "We were turning right but we had to wait for traffic to stop, talking." Given that us Americans drive on the right side of the road (and we can turn right on a stop light). I think examples like these make the rule about ending on a preposition look stupid, simply put!
