ok, i have finally got to the point where i got this to work good, i like this design, tell me what you think, good and bad points
http://www.stormhosting.cjb.com/users/kalbal/flash3/main.html
i have come up with this design, and unlike the other site (preloading external content) this 1 has the whole site in 1 flash file, and the preloader works alot better, check this 1 out, i think it a very big improvement

sorry if the site does not work, might be because of downtime...*which they have alot of*

********EDITED*********
well thanks for ur time :D

How cheap? I can host you possibly. I am actually working to get a hosting company going anyway. If not no sweat.

hmm, i dont know, i need to scout the internet and have a look at prices.
because i am not asking alot like other companies (500mb webspace, 10gb transfers etc) i only need a little because my site is not very big, although it will get bigger when i finish.

so, what do you think a good price would be? (bear in mind i am in uk) :shock:

For your site probably $10 USD a month if you do not need much support (always have ozzu though), so whatever that is in UK I am not sure. All those basics you said above though, you would get.

Graphics- The graphics are nice and go with the 'theme' of your website.

Sound- I hear alot of overlapping with all differen't sound effects/ music.

Forum- Forum colors and font on links at the top do not really match the theme of your website

overall- 1-10 10(best) I give you a 7, because i admire basically anyone who knows how to use mfmx.

For a first time on flash, looks pretty sweet. I, myself, am still learning the ropes with Flash software. But like someone said I heard a bit of overlapping on your introduction audio. The animation was pretty seamless and used the right amount of FPS.

I know there's a way to bring HTML into flash... there's gotta' be a way...

I think overall the design is fine. A few niggly details maybe: the graphics could be cleaner (there are some jaggies on the edges that are artifacts from scaling at other than a 1-1 pixel ratio). Also, the lightning could benefit from being more dynamic -- perhaps an extra graphic for the lighting so that it doesn't always look the same?

Good luck with it!

Cool site love to see more flash sites on this forum... The song Link Park in the background was cool.... I'd work on the graphics a little... but the way you entered the main page was great. Felt like it was a machine. It took a little bit to download from the start... don't know if it's your host or those wav/mp3 files where compressed at all.... hope you add more later i'll give it a looksee FLASH ROCKS!

Thanks alot, but i am goin to come up with another design, the way i see it, is that if i keep re-designing i will come up with 1 i love, and i think this new 1 will do. thesite has anintro, and it is a little long for people who will be on the site alot, the next 1 will be a cool grey and white, it will have minimum tweening and try to act more like a website, i will post when it is done :wink: i think it lookes kinda techno :twisted:

I like your new design better too. Definetely looks more professional and I like the dragon image you have. Something needs to be done to the white on each side, or at least how you transition from your site itself to the white on each side. Right now all you have is a solid contrasting line between the two and it just looks like something is missing. Maybe a border or something around the site? or maybe fade it somehow so it blends into it.

thanks alot, i think it looks more professional as well, but instead of a show i am aiming to make it more like a website.
the games i know do suck, i am still looking for some good 'ens
the white on the side, i only quickly made a html file for the flash file to site in last night and i quickly uploaded it, unsure about the white bits, i had a chat with m8s and they dont know what colour should go there?. i might make a background up, any ideas?

this site is different, it is all one flash movie, it does not import external flash movies like before, the whole movie is on one timeline.

i will continue to update it when i can, i also need a good skin for the forum which will match the site, atm it is only the basic subsilver template, any ideas?

what do u mean u like the text?. sorry im a little confused?,....it is like any other text init?
thx for the compliment tho :D

Hi there

Looking very good!!

One thing, there are a lot of blank spaces, meaning places where there is nothing.

Now, I don't have anything against that, but maybe you could make the site less high, meaning less scrolling for the viewer.

Just a thought.

Very good work
kind regards

I agree with dr nick the graphics could be cleaner, it might help you to write in a dynamic interface in action script and power it with asp/php whatever, that is, if you have db access, this would allow you to change the content without having to post a new flash file. Doing a site this way requires ALOT of foreplanning, otherwise you get stuck because you forgot something and wind up spending ungodly hours in flash

Looks great, but you might want the buttons and sub headers to be more of a graphic and not text. It takes away from the great site header and makes it look like two different people made the header and sub headers.

Hey uniflix got a comment about your page.... I've been noticing in a lot of flash pages that they are layed out the same as yours.... Ex. the flash presentation being in the middle like that.... Is there a reason for the layout to be like that? Seems like you should branch out to get a full screen effect... (I'll take a guess your doing it for screen resolutions)

Just curious..

The problem is if he doesn't use vector images then they will become distorted when the page is sized to full screen.

But lets keep this ontopic ok!
