the pics menu button is not very visible
i think that you should give the visitors a choice for resolution because you designed it with a high resolution
the fonts on the frontpage and on the menu is not very readable.

Hi
this reminds me of my first flash based site lol..

ok
1) You need to add preloaders on the main page, and onto the other links.
I was downloading at the time and it was going very slow and i was waiting for the components to show.

2) the buttons, they need sorting out, if you dont put the cursor over a certain part of the button it dont work. You should make a box to sit them in when you make the button in flash.
when u edit the button in flash simply insert a new frame under the text and put a box there, then all you have to do is put the cursor over the box for it to work

3) The scroll bar on all of the pages is cut in half. Probably because the movie that you are importing is too big for the movie clip.

4) the backgound looks ok, seems a little out of focus to me tho (maybe it is supposed to be like that lol)

all in all it is better than my first flash attempt...

I would recommend
http://www.kirupa.com
http://www.flashkit.com
these are resources and tutorials.
also some gr8 tutorials on how to make preloaders..

well done :thumbsup:

Nice!
I recommend:
- put bg music into flash, with controls...
- change style (colors and face) of font used on background.

Anyw, as a first hp - its very succesfull.

very nice. The flash work is pretty good. I would only change one thing. that background doesnt go with the background color. I would change it to either a tan color or white or a light grey. its really your choice though. also, you might want to add a different kind of counter or something. It just sticks out and doesnt blend in with the page.

hey man!

that looks good, even tho not finished, i love the bg picture
text on menu kinda hard to read :/
also i was thinking that rollover link color change would be hella nice

and since that box thing is kinda small, maybe you should make it non-scrollable (fit the screen size) on 1024x768

but hey, that was good, keep it up!!

I like the site and you have have some nice cs screen shots.

however when i first looked at the home page i couldn't find what was a link and what wasn't you might want to add some kind of rollover.

Give the main page some user interaction instead of it just sitting their.

Also i'm not too much of a fan of sites with black backgrounds or grey backgrounds and multicolored text.

To me it makes the site more difficult to read and might discourage viewers. just my opinion.

i do however like the overall layout of the site. Very nice job for a first time believe me my first page was a whole lot worse.
