Open new browser window from Flash

So, here's my situation: I'm running an online game site, and a few websites are really bad about embedding some of my games and stealing bandwidth.

To combat this, I replaced the original files with super-simple .swf files that redirected back to my own websites -- thus stealing back the traffic that they were stealing from me.

The problem came later when something changed with the new Flash player, and new windows no longer opened. For the life of me, I can't figure out how to get new windows to open. I've tried a few different approaches, but nothing appears to work.

So what I'm wondering is, can this even be done anymore -- where I can switch out a .swf that's being leeched with one that opens a window to my own site?

I've got Flash CS3, but only a very limited knowledge of Flash.

Thanks in advance.

Thumbs up _blank?

Are you using

getURL("YourSite", "_blank");
or
getURL("YourSite", "_self");


adobe.com

/support/flash/action_scripts/actionscript_dictionary/actionscript_dictionary377

.html

Good luck on getting your hits back
