I had some hopes for this but I'm at a dead end now.  I downloaded an
.sol editor, which is for windoz and mac only  :(

http://www.alexisisaac.net/content/view/16/28/

to manipulate the .sol files in the .macromedia folder. 
Unfortunately, I'm thinking this file extension is appropriately
named.   Not that I'm ruling out manipulating the quality setting with
the .sol files, but the quality setting seems to be done with a flash
ActionScript that's a part of each game.swf that is played.

_quality = "LOW";

I tried changing the quality of a game and then looking for some
change in the .sol files but I couldn't find anything.

Anyone have any experience editing these .sol files?


Thanks,
Peter
