World Viewer

Another little flash project I have been working is to have a viewer for showcasing my fantasy and sci-fi worlds.

This is just a work in progress demo

OOPS – I must never have enabled the reading of the ‘input’ variable and it will always use a project with the names test world. Until I have access to FLASH I cannot fix this bug. There are workarounds (i.e., using a different worldview.php in a different folder and making that more compliated but for now this is limited to one project)
BUG 2 – If opening screen has no text, it still shows the ‘text box’
BUG 3 – Need to hide all button labels while ‘drawing in’ details… ugly little flash

technical details

Header 540 x 70
Sidebar 130 x 600
Viewarea 400 x 600
Footer: 540 x 60
Viewareatextbox (top box for label of button you pressed OR creature name?) – 352×36
Marker: 14 x 14
Floattext: 386 x 107

– FYI: If you want transparent art, you use PNG file

Skin table
each row is an image in the frame
Row 1 – background
Row 2 – Small header above current frame
Row 3 – sidebar
Row 4 – big header
Row 5 – footer
Row 6 – the default marker to use to highlight the current page
Row 7 – The panel to use for floating text insie of a page

Tricks:
– If the row in your skin table for the marker (id=6) is just “” it will use the default marker
