Whenever having flash games developed for me I always used 640x480.
It's essentially \the standard and since flash is vector it will scale

If you build Flash games using Actionscript 3, I would say that you
could go up to 800x600, because AS3 has code for drawing graphics at a
faster rate than AS2. If you try to build a scrolling fast-action Flash
game at 800x600 with AS2 you'll have a REAL challenge getting it to
maintain an acceptable framerate. Trust me on this one. But if the
game is more casual, it's certainly possible.
If you try and get Flash to go 1024x768, I believe that you're going to
have framerate or performance issues with any advanced gameplay or

Flash is software-rendered, so no matter what video card your user has,
the performance of the Flash player itself is still going to be your
