For a flash site, it's very nicely done.

You know I'm not a big fan of flash, but this is a neat site. There's just one thing that bugged me about it...

If you go to the Bio page, it comes up with a nice quick responsive scrolly for all the content. This isn't the bit that bugs me, heh.

If you go over to the "Music" page, it's got a scrolly again, but the content kinda lags behind the scroll button. Now, I've disabled all the default windows/IE animation (minimize/maximize/scrolling pages in the browser, etc.) so it really sticks out to me. Maybe it's just that I'm seeing it more pronounced because I disabled all the windows animated stuff, and it isn't noticable in a default setup, but that's the only thing that bugs me about it.

It does it on the photo gallery too, although nowhere near as bad as the tunes list. On the gallery it's quite effective :)

Nice work :)

Very Nice!

The only thing that feels off to me is the scrollbar in the 'news' column. I guess it would feel more comfortable if the scrollbar was taller, probably the same height as the area being scrolled.

Don't know if was just me, but there seems to be a minor glitch in your scripting. Sometimes when it loads a section, the conent flys in twice. Seems to happen mainly with the 'photos' section.

I'm surprised you didn't do the guestbook in flash too.

One of the pictures of the guitarists is blurry, or pixelated or something.

Excellent look and feel.

:grinyes:
- The colors are very intriguing i like them allot.
- The concept is very artistic and nicely done

:hmm:

-I don't like flash... yes it is all flashy and that (w00t A pun! ) but it doesn't take much skill to develop a site like that in flash. I mean you could do a similar design in HTML without all the fading crap.

but despite that I'm still giving you a 3.7 out of 5 heh!

I'm a big fan of flash animation & looks like you know what you're doing. Not sure if it is my connection or something (have broadband), but when I click on menu items the program hesitates for about 5 secs -says 'loading 0%' - then loads fine & fast. Like i said that may be me.

don't let anyone tell u to change the color scheme either. its perfect for a band site.

I would like to go on the record and say this is a known issue, but it is an issue that seriously should NOT be happening, can't figure out why it is, considering all sections are set up the same just with different content. :evil:

thanks for the comments everyone. Nice to see a spectrum of opinions. :)

and yes, lostinbeta and I are definitely aware of a couple glitches. we're
working on it. ;)

in case anyone is wondering, he did all the coding for all the content and
navigation. It's run via XML and some rather incredible actionScript. My
public thanks goes out to him for his work and his help.

I just saw this. Unlike those who aren't big flash fans, I am, and hopefully will one day develop these kinda skills. I can't say one negative thing about it -- I just plain out-right love it. Nice as usual, UNFLUX (What's really the kicker is to see lostinbeta's involvement) -- kudos to you too bro.

great use of flash. easy to navigate. one of the better band sites ive seen. 1 complaint is that the sounds come in kind of loud and there should be some way to stop/mute the sound. also the scroll bar effect is neat but definitely takes away from the ease of use. i also would suggest u pop this into a new window with out nav bar, buttons address bar etc.

how is this site updated? the picture gallery seems like it can be easily updated without even using flash. maybe even just putting the images and thumbnails on the server in the right folder. can it? if you want to know how to do that with php and flash i just went through it for my site.

I have to say, for a flash site it didn't look all hi-tech and edgy like most...I like that. It had the feel of a small rock bar. I love the choice of colors and the site loaded fast. Great work :D
