Okay well, it's cool and all, but I have never in my whole life seen so many coding errors on one page, I didn't know it was possible ... 1014 errors ... you can click here to see them ... Sorry bro, but that's a lot, and that's just on the "home" page ...

I think then you can disable the link of the page that a user is on ... for example, if a user is on the "Action Games" page, you can disable the "Action Games" link and make it another colour (or rollover state) ...

I like the actual look of the site, I just think the white borders are a little overwhelming ... maybe just a little bit gray (like #eeeeee) ... Just my opinion ... You're the second 14 year old here with some design skills (The other one is Fabinator) ...

then the text in the header looks a little blurry ... Maybe you want it like that, but it's a bit distracting to me ...

Please don't think I'm trying to be harsh or anything with my comments ... I'm just giving my feedback ...

When viewing the games in IE ... There is always this "Click To Activate And Use This Control" thing over flash objects ... here's a workaround ...

One little trick to work around the "Click to Activate and Use This Control" problem
(due to a plugin issue with microsoft)

Your embed code is:


Code: [ Select ]
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"
id="mars" align="middle" height="130" width="130">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain">
<param name="movie" value="mars.swf">
<param name="quality" value="high">
<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff">
<embed src="mars.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff"
name="mars" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain"
align="center" height="130" width="130">
  1. <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"
  2. codebase=",0,0,0"
  3. id="mars" align="middle" height="130" width="130">
  4. <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain">
  5. <param name="movie" value="mars.swf">
  6. <param name="quality" value="high">
  7. <param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff">
  8. <embed src="mars.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff"
  9. name="mars" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain"
  10. type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
  11. pluginspage=""
  12. align="center" height="130" width="130">
  13. </object>

If you ceate a myprintln.js file that simply says:

Code: [ Select ]
// myprintln.js
function myprintln(s) { document.writeln(s); }
  1. // myprintln.js
  2. function myprintln(s) { document.writeln(s); }

and put this in the head of your file:

Code: [ Select ]
...yada yada yada... 

 <script src="myprintln.js"></script>
  1. ...yada yada yada... 
  2.  <script src="myprintln.js"></script>
  3.  </head>

...and wrap your script like this:

Code: [ Select ]
myprintln('<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"');                 
myprintln('codebase=" abs/flash/,0,0,0"');
myprintln('id="mars" align="middle" height="130" width="130">');
myprintln('<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain">');
myprintln('<param name="movie" value="mars.swf">');
myprintln('<param name="quality" value="high">');
myprintln('<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff">');       
myprintln('<embed src="mars.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff"');
myprintln('name="mars" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain"');
myprintln('pluginspage=""' );
myprintln('align="center" height="130" width="130">');
  1. <script>
  2. myprintln('<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"');                 
  3. myprintln('codebase=" abs/flash/,0,0,0"');
  4. myprintln('id="mars" align="middle" height="130" width="130">');
  5. myprintln('<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain">');
  6. myprintln('<param name="movie" value="mars.swf">');
  7. myprintln('<param name="quality" value="high">');
  8. myprintln('<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff">');       
  9. myprintln('<embed src="mars.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff"');
  10. myprintln('name="mars" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain"');
  11. myprintln('type="application/x-shockwave-flash"');
  12. myprintln('pluginspage=""' );
  13. myprintln('align="center" height="130" width="130">');
  14. myprintln('</object>');
  15. </script> will work around that problem

a little slow loading and the banner is a little bland , also you need more colors, something that gives off energy but.....

I thought the layout and overall design was good

Nice site Chris. I think you did a great job. I have actually book marked it to play some of those games. Keep up the good work! And regardless of all your errors, it seems impressive to me that some who is 14 can create a site like this... Don't get discouraged.

Nice site. The main thing I noticed other than the aforementioned white border lines that I would change is the gradient on the header. It fades to a darker color of gray and then butts right up against a lighter one below it. Also, a TLD would be a big improvement over the free domain redirecting to a subdomain.

Seems a bit too, Plain to me for a Games site.. I expected to see more graphics usage.. The all gray is kinda Bland in my opinion.

Thanks for all the help you guys, it's very much appreciated. As for the errors on the page there is no way. I have clicked all the links and did most everything I could possibly test and it all works smoothly. The only one thing i'm having a problem with is the full screen button. Me as a 14 year old I don't know everything there is to know right now, But im learning :)
