Can u check the link - getting a 404 here.

Working on a new site ( ).

The 'Get In Touch' button (bottom right) is actually a transparent anchor, over a <div> with a background image, containing both the normal and hilighted versions of the contact info.

A very simple piece of javascript changes the background-position to show the hilighted version.

Code: Javascript [Select]
  1. function SecondWaveClass() {
  2.   document.getElementById('SecondWave').style.backgroundPosition="0 -145px";
  3. }

The code works in IE7, Opera, FF but not IE6 and I can't see why?

Any fellow designers / coders have any clues?



Damn - everyone else got back here before me :(

Thank you to all concerned in the rescue and rebuild operation. It sure is nice to have the forum back again.

<contented sigh>Aaaaah</contented sigh>

So far the effort has all been on the 'real' physical version of the game.

However I would still like to creat a 'virtual' software version. I have cast my eye over all the suggestions above, and am sure that any of them would work, but I think Flash is the way to go, as it is readily accessible my the majority of internet users, and is already accepted as a home for casual games.

iphigenie: Me too! bgg search all the way.  I have taken the liberty of sending you the link... hope you have a chance to try the game.

Mouser: Great... check your PM.

I'm in. Does it use a lot of color? My tricolor ink cartridge is empty and it will probably cost $15-$20 to get a new one. :(

You could get away with printing in black and white - it just wont look so pretty.

PM sent with link to file :)

General Software Discussion / Monkey Dash: Play test my game!
« on: February 28, 2008, 04:23 PM »
OK now that I've lured you into the thread I'll come clean... it is a board game.

Games with Monkeys are fab!

STOP! Come back! Board games are great - honestly.

One year ago I was just like you and thought that board games were dull, old fashioned and generally uninteresting, but then I discovered Board Games With Scott, and the games he reviewed looked fun. From there I surfed to Board Game Geek where I discovered that there are more games in the world than Trivial Pursuit, Monopoly, Cluedo and Pictionary - really good games. Games that I love to play, games that make me proud to say "I am a board gamer".

Cut to the present day, and I've only gone and invented my own game: Monkey Dash - a two player strategy game, involving two fat monkeys, six 'every-good-game-has-them' regular wooden crates, a couple of competing warehouse supervisors and some quirky game mechanics.

After rigorous play testing with friends and family, Monkey Dash is now ready to stretch its legs, and seeks new fresh play-testing talent.

If you are interested then reply to this thread and I'll point you to a download so that you can print your own prototype, and test it to destruction.

Give me some feedback on the experience and I'll send you the two add-ons which extend the base game.

Nice to have a visual example.

Does the user have any control over the number of points used?

If so...

Can the results of more / fewer points be viewed (in a manner similar to your image above) in real-time?

Perhaps these are more advanced features that are suitable for the forthcoming Pro edition, or may be the are outside the scope of Scanahand, which I assume was designed for speed and simplicity.

@nosh: Thanks for the tip - never knew I could do that.

The [Fire][Bug] -> [Dragon][Fly] argument seems believable, since we already know that Opera has promised better developer tools for a while now.

I think FlashFolders has this capability - it has a drop-down of "folders of currently open files" to "global history of folders". Between the two you should be able to jump to any recently  / currently accessed area of your disk.

Looks fun - very similar to...

Living Room / Re: Ralf Maximus - MIA?

I assumed that Centurion Maximus had rejoined his legion ;)

katykaty: Thank you!!!  :-*

I realise that it isn't going to win the Nobel Prize for literature, but it amused me to write it, and fun to see it again after many years. I originally printed two copies (so that as a limited edition it would be worth a fortune!) but no longer have either copy :(

yksyks: Thanks for trying.

katykaty: Ooh! So nearly! CorelDraw X3 seems to have opened it, but only the first page of many.

Looking at the original file in a hex editor I can see that the text for the whole book (three short stories) is definitely buried in there along with lots of extra data (layout information and pictures) so I am hoping that the whole thing can be recovered somehow.

Perhaps it needs a really early version of CorelDraw to make sense of the file?

Got my fingers corssed crossed (Ed: seems they were literally crossed when I typed that!) :)

I was searching through some old backup CDs today, and found the original file for a short illustrated book that I wrote many years ago.

It is called "Shaun the Sheep" and is a tongue-in-cheek children's book, for adults (due to the drug taking scene).

From memory it was put together in CorelDraw v4, but I no longer have CorelDraw or anything else that will open the file, so I am posting it here in the hope that someone will be able to open it and export it in a more accessible format.

Thanks for your time :)

Looks like a cool product - I might well be interested in adding it to my collection.

Could you give some details on the difference between the Standard and Premium editions?

In what format(s) is the font saved? I assume it is a vector font, probably TrueType, but I don't think the site specifies this anywhere?!

« on: February 13, 2008, 12:53 PM »
Agreed! Why's Ruby guide is a classic - it is worth learning the language JUST as an excuse to read that document!

If only such things existed for Javascript, PHP, Java etc etc.

I have toyed with Ruby and it seems very elegant and a great tool for certain applications. I have a friend who is using it to code his experimental maths.

@PhilB66: Thanks for pointing that one out - but it seems to clash with something else on my system, and the autopaging just produces a screen of 'random' HTML. I might see if I can find the conflict later.

A few UserJS that I have installed on my setup...

Identifies links to specific file types, and displays an appropriate icon when the link is hovered.

Configurable, pretty, pinnable, tooltips, with additional plugin support for live CSS editing, DOMViewer and element hiding.
