Talking

Hi! Q here...

I've been set in charge to build a website for the RMP (relentless Movie Project)... I'll try to have it finished in two weeks or something. Check it out at http://www.oxygenetic.com/EqCards/RMP/index.htm . The address will change to the original url once the site is finished (and I see thomas again to give me the login and pass since I forgot )

Cool Heavy Shit...

The menu on the site is heavy, so for people with dial-up just close the real-player thing so it doesn't clog shit up. and just as a reminder: I AM NOT FINISHED YET!!!

Okay... two annoying things: all those small windows and the menu is way too heavy. It even takes a while to load with my cable connection. Hmrz®...

Red face Small windows

The Small windows... The idea is to close the welcoming word page and just continue with the RP shit and the menu (btw you can close rp too it's not necessairy for the site, it's just cool)... Every time you click in the menu, a new screen opens... I like it better than sites where you constantly have to tap BACK n shit.

I sent you notes detailing inprovements, but its a good start.
I must say the sites I like best are ones with a constant menu bar at the side or top.You only need one window, and you never have to press back.

Trash bin I'll give it a look

I'll give it a look later...

DF, I don't like sites where it's all text. I hate having to scroll down to read all the text, searching for important stuff...

And I don't like MIDI. Sure, it takes a looooooooong time to stream, but maybe I'll upload an extract of LBA² music (I can get them from the cd and encode), they're shorter. k?

^^

I never mentioned text sites!!
I ment like the MBN site (or Hundreds of others).
Just have menues at the left and/or top and the rest the actualy document.This is easy with frames.
Are you using HTML direct, or are you using something like Front Page?

Arrow What I use

I use ColdFusion... So that's both Frontpage-like (but better) combined with HTML...

Question God how crappy do you want it to be???

How crappy do you want the site to be? If you have dial up okay don't go there (I'll alter a non frames for dial up after the frames version is finished) but people with cable shouldn't complain....

Whats wrong with frames?
I use Adobe GoLive/Html.
An example of a site me and and a few friend are working on is:
http://singularity.3dup.net
With the menu on the left ans the site in the middle.You get a decent menu, good looking site and it loads it a resonable time.
(Yes I know theres are problem with the buttons, It isn't pre-loading the rollovers)

2 reasons

1) I don't like them (it's been done)
2) I can't make them

Yeah Yeah I'm only beginner like I said I'm not THAT good.... *sigh* but anywayz the site's been updated and the windows prob is fixed... I'll add a non-frames hyperlink on the menu but the main site will remain the same, since it's not heavy at all...

You want to be different put the menu at the right or bottom of the screen. (seroiusly! how many sites do you see that! its always at the left of top).
I am all for oringinality, but I don't see how too windows and switching between them is better then pressing 'Back'.
ALT-TAB or Presing BACK, dosn't make much diffrance really.
-------
Unless you can make your main menu windows always stay on top off the other windows.I don't know weather its possible in HTML,but it would be an improvement.
-----
Have you tried using the GIFs I sent you ?, they should load quicker,and you should see them loading it incressing quality.
------
I prefer the Realplayer bar at the bottom, thats a bit better. But why not have a choice between Real player and Midi?
People with 56+ conections could have the decent music streamed.
people with <56k could have medi files played (seeing as there only 1/1000 the size of RA)

Frames are fine for modems! They make no difference.

I did precisely what El did and close down the popups becuase I get enough of them on other sites. Then I puzzled over why there was no menu until I realised I closed it.

If you can't do frames then just do a simple menu system like in DF's orignal site, that was fine. No one really needs to hear the LBA music either, we all have the MIDI files and the WAVs and don't need them hogging our bandwidth. Leave that bit out.

I think it's better to have a button "Click here to play the LBA theme in RealAudio" rather than starting it automatically.
