    yes, probably. if i remember right, i went for a system like this:

    one
    two
    three

    and had the flash cycle through all message tags just once before making a new xml request. the xml’s a php script that (currently) just gets the last ‘this’ many events from the stats database, limited to 5 at the mo(?)

    all the flash stuff uses xml and external files. the banner itself’s basically just as3 to make use of the flash plugin. all the links, text, colours and graphics can be changed with edits to php. same applies to the video player, and we can link it to any youtube we like.

    ive updated the banner video. there were no complaints on load time or peformance, so i thought id push things a little further. the base vid in the banner is now about 1MB with footage from 43.3. slightly higher resolution, similar bitrate but dropped fps from 30 to 25. let me know if there are any problems.

    ps:
    peanut, ’cause youll probably read this. question about text areas. you probably want to test for n (and r in opera/ie). javascript indexof or split would do it, or maybe regex.

    it’s quite different. the new sequence includes a scene with parrots, and one with lightning. ive updated again since i posted. added more contrast to the red scene on request. now back to 30fps

    and the red scene is indeed much better 🙂

    Any chance of bringing back the PM popup too.

    I’m sure there used to be a popup when a PM was recieved, that doesn’t happen anymore and as I’m sure you’ve noticed yourself, it’s easy to miss having a PM if you’re not used to receiving them often.

    Not a major thing tho.

    no changes made there. i always block anyway, but i had a popup warning in firefox last time.

    they (phpbb) are using javascript for that. it’s possible that if there’s an error in some of the code elsewhere on the page (eg flash embed or cookie settings for the mini banner), it could halt the rest. could you give me your browser release/version numbers for testing?

    There’s an option in the user control panel to disable notification, this was disabled.
    Didn’t even know it existed, had a look just in case and as Lappy pointed out… red facedness ensued.

    updated the banner once more – it’s quite instant while i still have track of everything. ive had the green scene show first. i think it ties in more nicely with those classic camouflage tones.
