If you wanted to make it web based, you could use php and the GD library. Assuming your rom pic is aligned into a grid of rows and columns, you can just come up with a grid system for the "center" of each bit you want to sample, write a for loop to traverse that grid, and use something lik...

There are two blatant issues with your script that I can see. First, $file will only contain the filename, not the path. In your case, you are reading the cache/ directory relative to the current script, but you are trying to delete $file, rather than cache/$file. Change:

Oops, you should actually use sort instead of asort. asort preserves keys.

sort ( $arr );
print_r ( $arr );
  1. <?php
  3. $arr = array ( "a", "the", "aggression" );

well, if you were using php (You didn't mention which language), you could put the strings into an array, then use asort to sort the array:

asort ( $arr );

Right-click save-as should work fine. Make sure when you save it you save it with a .png name. usually, when you try to save a generated image, the browser will try to save it as the script name (like image.php) instead of the image name. IE will sometimes try to save images a .bmp files.

You call it what you want. I'm just trying to say that if you use the term layer in place of div, you're just going to confuse people. The Layer tag is gone. It's called Div now.

Post Posted: November 29th, 2006, 11:27 am

ScienceOfSpock, if you know, <div> tag is also know as layout layers, anything that can be placed over another object is referred to as {layers} ;) No, the <div> tag is called a <div> tag. I can place an image over another element, is that referred to as a layer instead of an imag...

well, the game is an RPG, and is based on php. The flash is just the display part. The actual game mechanics are handled in php and javascript.

In addition to what joebert wrote, CSS2 also specifies a handheld media type for just this sort of thing.

The way I understand it, depths in flash work like z-index in CSS, with the exception that you can only have 1 object per depth in flash. If you have 2 movieclips in the same relative x,y location, one on depth 1 and the other on depth 5, the mc on depth 5 will obscure the one on depth 1, so that in...

well, the format string should be in quotes, but basically you get the idea.
Code: [ Select ]
date("M D, y", $unixtime);
However, the format you specified would result in a date like this: Nov Tue, 06 You probably want something more like this: [code] date ( "M d, Y", $un...

Take a look at the date function. It accepts a timestamp as the second argument.

And actually, disregard what littlephoenix wrote. You aren't using layers incorrectly. You aren't using layers at all. I guess s/he looked at your css, saw a few id's with "layer" in the name and assumed. Layers haven't been in use since NS4 and have since been replaced by the <div> ...

For one thing, you are specifying XHTML 1.0 Transitional as your doctype, but XHTML doesn't support the bordercolor property for any element. All styling should be done in CSS. This includes borders, background images and background colors. Instead of doing this: [code]<td width="251" b...

it's a simple loop. There are some calculations on where the tile should go, but basically it looks like this: [code]z=0; for ( y = startY; y < endY; y++ ) { for ( x = startX; x < endX; x++ ) { newTile = _root.attachMovie("t"+_root.map_arr[y&...

That's what I tried first. When that didn't work, I thought it was a depth issue, so I added that. Anyway, it works now.

Nevermind. The problem was that when the drawmap function is called, it draws out all the tiles and all the overlays using different names in the attachmovie method. I changed the function to use the same name for all of them, and now it cleans up just fine. Not sure why using different names on att...

I got around that problem. I was noticing the zoom problem, so what I did was make the swf 1600x1200, then put it in a container div with overflow: hidden; and centered the movie in the div. Works pretty well. The whole reason for this is i wanted users to be able to resize the map window to fit the...

it has a 45 day no-restrictions trial. Last time I checked, it was still $40. The feature list is comparable to most higher priced editors, and the syntax highlighting is completely customizable, and it even has a hex editor.

Post Posted: November 26th, 2006, 6:36 pm

the only thing I can see wrong is that your myVar may not be carrying through to the getURL call. Try adding a trace(myVar); just before the getURL call and test it in flash to see if myVar is actually getting through. If it's not, create it as an empty string in the root timeline, then when you ref...

I prefer Ultraedit. I've been using it for years. It provides support for Unicode and UTF-8, and it's a disk based editor. I have Zend studio too, but it's bulky and slow, probably because it's written in Java. If i'm in linux, I use Eclipse or Vim.

The problem with the thumbnails not loading is because of the URL. If you specify a url at all in flash when loading xml or images or anything, it has to match the url that the flash is on EXACTLY. In your code, you're doing this: [code]myPhoto.load("http://www.laurentilden....

Yeah, I forgot one thing: put:
Code: [ Select ]
RewriteRule ^/$ /
at the end of your .htaccess file, so it looks like this:
Code: [ Select ]
RewriteEngine On RewriteRule ^scart/([a-zA-Z\ ]+)$ /index.php?action=$1 RewriteRule ^/$ /
Then reload it a few times (to get rid of browser cache)

Oh yeah, when you change your http.conf, you need to restart apache. If that doesn't help, can you post the server error you are getting?

Post Posted: November 24th, 2006, 2:27 am

Apache needs to load the rewrite module for mod_rewrite to work. If you're on shared hosting, or virtualhost, you will need to talk to your hosting company to get it turned on. If you have control of your own server, you will need to uncomment the following line in your http.conf: change: [code]#Loa...

It sounds like you're missing a closing tag somewhere. IE will correct this for you, and display it correctly, because it is dumb. Firefox, on the other hand, will leave it as is, and display it broken. Double check your <td> and <tr> tags and make sure you don't have anything missing.

When you import items to the stage, Flash imports them to the center of the work area, not the center of the movie. Double click the pan button to center the movie in the work area before importing your frames and they should import without the offset.
