Living Room / Re: SMIRF Chess Game. User won and bounced?

Thanks for the tips, app103.

And actually, I didn't mean like... against their will or anything.  I mean as part of the competition, your software must remain available to the users of this forum.  Or at least the founders of this forum.

You know, as a stipulation of winning.  Kind of like having to put $5 in a pot to win a $1,000 or other nonsensical analogy.  I am *no* good at analogies, forgive me.   ;D

Living Room / SMIRF Chess Game. User won and bounced?
« on: August 20, 2007, 11:58 PM »
Am I correct in that the user "Smirf" stuck around long enough to win Borland Studio and then removed all traces of his chess program?

*If* that is the case, that is one of the primary reasons why I wouldn't allow someone to compete without archiving *all* of their software and making it available.  That seems like a fair stipulation.

So, I haven't missed it anywhere have I?

Ever since reviewing ronriel's nifty little r4r media player, I have found a renewed love for AutoIt.

Here is that application in only 5 lines of AutoIt.

Code: AutoIt [Select]
  1. $o = ObjCreate("SAPI.SpVoice")
  2. For $i = 1 To 10
  3.         $o.Speak($i)
  4.         Sleep(50)

Oh, I forgot to mention I am running AutoIt and Windows XP SP2.

Alright.  I *am* going to get you sorted.  Please paste for me a screenshot of SeqDownloader's "Download Properties" dialog.  The one where you insert a new item.

I want to see your *exact* settings, and the *exact* URL you download from.  I used the revised URL you provided in your last post and was getting PHP files.

So, help me help you... once I figure out this downloading of images part, the rest is easy!

There are far too many things wrong with the markup and code you provided.  Is it at all possible for you to upload this example somewhere?

A few notes:

1.  That link you gave for the images, leads to only 1 image.  And it didn't appear to update...

2.  Setting one image as your background does not seem to be the primary way SeqDownload animates images.  Although it can be done.

3.  The "language" attribute is deprecated in favor of using:


Although some would argue that it too is deprecated.

4.  The things you've tried (directly above this post) are all methods of styling the document via HTML attributes.  This should arguably be done via CSS.

However, I do not think it is the source of your problems.

Anything further, I'd really need to see an example page, complete with images and code.
