Duchess, that black box runs a movie like trailer that plays some cool background music while running the words that V-S put down.

It doesn't work on all browsers. I had to open IE to run it. It's neat but my only comment is that the trailer takes a long time to download, and a lot of people will be there and gone by the time it does unless they are on a fast connection.

Like the link to the watch. Cool

This is excellent! I'm scanning more covers now and will scan the Drool Rockworm one, too.

The Flash trailer is 1.3M, so it might take a few minutes to load. Hopefully this can be tweaked down a bit in size.

If you can't see the trailer, install the Flash plug-in from here:

http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer/

... then visit the srd.com site again and click Refresh. Normally if a browser doesn't have the necessary plug-in, it will prompt you to install it from the proper site. Not sure why that didn't do it in this case.

(it does work in both IE and Netscape for me - what browser and version are people running where it's not working properly?)

That's nice Darth! Very Happy Rolling Eyes Amy the discussion board is in About the Author, but I didn't want to tell you I wanted you to find out on your own, more fun that way... Very Happy Yes Brian's analysis is quite ..er..interesting to say the least. I was sad last night cause I couldn't hear the music-but then again I haven't reset Windows Media since I reconfirgured my comp a week ago-DUH! Embarassed

I think the link to KW will give anybody all the story info they could possibly want.

Well, I downloaded that flashplayer thing, rebooted my computer not once, but twice -- and still nothing but a black box. Sad I guess some things are just not meant to be. Sad

I think if you see the black box, it means that you do have Flash installed - but you just need to wait for it to fully load. The are some words on the first page of the trailer that are meant as a delaying tactic (look at the words on page 1 while page 2 loads in the backgroun), but it sounds like that "streaming" (downloading and viewing one page at a time) isn't working correctly.

Shocked This is amazing! I love the site! And I love the trailer! I want the Runes of the Earth now!!!

btw, that brown cannot have been the same brown as we had for a short while here (why? Since I loved the SRD-site brown... Wink )... I think it might have been too much yellow in the text too - perhaps the text should be light-yellow? And keep the orange down to a minimum...

It just occurred to me... If I was an author who was getting an official website, and I needed a discussion board to go with it, I would spend a good amount of time looking at them before I picked one. Anybody worried that he might have read YOUR posts? heh Smile
