    Default My first websites!

    I spent a lot of time on these guys so tell me what you think!

    www.gowestmovie.com

    If you click on blog then the pictures in the photo album it will bring you to a flash flip book for each of the characters. I'm still working on trying to embed a youtube video so for now its kinda been faked.

    www.buckwildfilms.com

    This is a fake porn site for a character in the movie Im working on.
    Password thing is fake you can enter anything you want really.

    I think the little flip book thing is pretty cool but a little hard for novice users to understand how to use it. Maybe there should be some sort of lightbox popup thing like our video tutorials to show them how to use it?

    Also at higher resolutions your backgrounds tend to repeat. Perhaps they need to be defined in the CSS to not repeat. Not bad for your first web sites though. Way better than my first attempts

    gotcha, I'll see what I can do. I had text on most of the books that say click and drag, but perhaps its not clear enough.

    Thanks! I guess thats the outsider art kinda thing. I planned out the website before I knew how to make websites. So I planned things that were cool, but difficult to make. Oh well! Thank you for looking!

    Few comments on the go west. Seems like an awfully long time to load the flash menu. You should look at another product (I used to use SWISHmax and a flash animation I made tookabout 3 seconds to start playing because it streamed the flash.)
    Some of the backgrounds are huge. Mike - 500K. I threw it into photoshop and got it down to 100K and it looks just as sharp as the original.
    In Blog - when done with reading a flip book, I think the BACK link should take you back to the blog area, not the main menu.

    Nice concept!

    yea, there are some limitations with the coding that I did. I'll try to get it to go back to the blog area, but since it's just one image it's hard to get it to start anywhere but the middle or it would throw off the movement. Ill lower the res on the bg images though. I guess having a faster connection makes me put this stuff together differently haha.

    I have a 1GB connection, which is no slouch, but I suffer the problem. I test on my cell phone data connection for a reality check. Also, you can use a proxy, since they slow thing down. But....
    Bottom line is.... you want smaller images, or you want to fund the Glowhost company trip to Mars when your bandwidth runs out? LOL!
