  1. IE still hasn't adapted the PNG stnadards. to make it work properly with PNG you need to make sure you use sanctioned websafe colors. Thats IE sanctioned web safe colors. MS has their own set of rules that they want everyone else to follow.

    anyway, the way I got it to work was by doing a little blending on teh edge of the PNG file. that way when IE changed the file color code, it still blended with the logo.


  2. sorry Honky Buzz,

    Been Busy with real life, I was unable to get an answer from the ariginal creator of the website to see if he would be willing to share his code.

    It seems like lately I have been busy with keeping my employers websites more in tune then anything else, I will see what I can come up with.


  3. hi ryry,

    I can help out a little bit on that, however it is a bit tricky.

    open the MPEG with windows movie maker, or even better use flash if yo have it, this will split the movie up into indiviual frames, next take the frames you want to use for animation and copy them into separate files. for example frame1.jpg, frame2.jpg, frame3.jpg etc...

    I wouldn't use more then 3 or 4 frames at the most. next open a program like Animation shop 3, part of the Corel Paint Shop pro programming system, and use the images you saved from windows movie maker as the images for the animation.

    Make the necessary adjustments for time and sequence, and there you go. you just made an avatar or sig out of a MPEG.

    i've got a feeling if he can't afford $500 for Adobe, then he might not be able to afford $400 for it either.

    Course I could be wrong.

  6. it may be a site that is blocked by your ISP. Like bubba said, you're not missing much by not getting to it. from what I am seeing two steps have to be done for you to "make money" on it. refer people daily, and complete offers from their partner companies. Generally you are paying more money out doing this then you are bringing in.

    your choice, but I would recommend avoiding that site like you would the plague.


  7. I am NOT getting a notice that says my copy is not legal. It just says that I am supposed to upgrade to SP2.

    Essentially, once SP2 is installed, I have trouble with Direct X -- specifically, Direct Draw and Direct 3D problems. This means I can't play any games.

    After installing SP2 did you try to re-install DirectX 9.0c? I had a similar issue when I originally put on SP2, re-installing DirectX took care of that for me.

    What has a tendancy to happen is the SP2 update corrupts the DirectX driver. If you have tried that, then i would recommend uninstalling DirectX, and your Nvidia drivers. install SP2, then reinstall both DirectX and nvidia. to see if that helps take care of it. i would also recommend installing the Nvidia driver before the DirectX , that way you don't have to worry about the new Nvidia driver corrupting the DirectX install. that software is easy to screw up, just installing pacific fighters on my machine forced me to reinstall DirectX.


  8. ok, I'm setting up a local server on my machine so that I can test PHP based web designs. I have successfully installed Apache I can get it working with no problems. Now I am trying to install PHP 4.4.2 into it, but when I follow the directions as supplied by both Apache and PHP.net it won't install. any help would greatly appreciated.


  9. The forum looks nice, but for some reason I can't seem to get it to let me register...keeps giving me an error on the code...which bugs me no end...as I have trouble seeing and that code part is so hard to see against that background stuff let alone to decipher which is a number versus a letter...so having to go back, refresh, and re-enter everything including a fresh code, over and over again for the last half hour is the pits! So how do I make it let me register? What am I doing wrong?

    Pat

    God bless everyone

    i'll turn the code off for 30 minutes once you register, send me a PM so that I can turn it back on. The code is to protect the forum and the users from spam bots.
