ive never done this, but how about adding a second bitmap with each hole at the same position, to a higher layer. the second bitmap would be just the black bit.October 19, 2011 at 4:29 pm #62215
wow, that was a quick response. thanks laptop. that might work.October 19, 2011 at 4:33 pm #62216

You sad pathetic…
Ah that’ll do, I’ve said it enough times already ;POctober 19, 2011 at 7:16 pm #62217
i was being polite. im not messing about with that for a gimmick. it wouldnt work anyway. i find it’s best just to humour laptop when he’s being smart.
ive added bullet holes. the sound is the large explosion from the game. if you cilck around, you may hit one of the hidden links. please consider that a bonus free feature – it’s definitely not a bug, probably
if you cant help clicking it repeatedly and you dont want to hit links, there’s a secret clickable at the far top left. click that and the video and links get removed.October 19, 2011 at 7:49 pm #62212
Nice, but I can’t find the button.
Why not just have a lil text link:
“Just shoot stuff”
To allow just shooting!October 19, 2011 at 8:39 pm #62213
it’s as far into the top left of the flash as you can go, beyond the visible bit and the shadow. it wasnt meant for that purpose, really. i added it as an easy way to update the static image, case we change the background videos or something.
we could do all sorts. youve seen what flash molehill* can do, peanut. flash 11’s been released now. i expect it’d take a port of the full game if anyone had the time/inclination/talent.
*for anyone who’s not heard of that, it’s a 3d gpu acceleration api for flash. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgwi0lWgX8w i think it’s going to be huge. instant cross-platform – that’s the selling point (bit like javavm)October 22, 2011 at 3:43 pm #62210
I see you added some Game Server events there, that’s real nice actually. but it does make the whole banner a bit crowded, or so I think. How about putting the server events on the top of the menu bar, just over the home | Download etc. buttons, in a kind of recessed window, and use a font that would be reminiscent of teletype/telex? I think that would be nice, especially if it appears typed letter by letter, fast but sequential? Just throwing ideas here but I like the idea of being able to see the action 🙂October 22, 2011 at 3:52 pm #62209
we’ve had that functionality for ages. the database was called for every page, previously, and it was tying up the DB. what ive done this time, is have a static xml prepared on a timer every 10 mins, so we get just the one query.
i like the idea of recessed windows and retro fonts : )
ive added a google +1 button. it needs testing.October 22, 2011 at 3:59 pm #62207
I’ve tested the button earlier today, it works, BUT for some reason that is only on the main page, when I am here in the forums for some reason it shows a diff. value. (i.e. doesn’t show my +1)
Also am just noticing in the typing window that the title of the thread is actually dropping off the left side of the screen if you’re no in full screen mode, minor point but for us poor souls with only one monitor 😉October 22, 2011 at 4:06 pm #62208
i dont seen any +1’s at all yet. this is new to me – i may not have done it right.

Love the banner mate… Gonna be saying “Game server event: Peanut’s Revenge was the overall winner” for a while now 😀
Thanks mate 😉October 23, 2011 at 1:20 am #62202

ArmorOctober 23, 2011 at 4:38 pm #62203
