Wall Bash No, no, no! I can't escape it. Everywhere I look, all I see is SSNG. In newsgroups, in my dreams/nightmares, and now it's invaded our Autohost game page. Stay back, stay back; I've got Ascendancy and I know how to use it.

Can I ask that if you're keeping that "look" Puke2

then can I have my files e-mailed to me?

You sure can... before I do that though, can you let me know what you do not like about the page changes, so that I might be able to make the page more appealing?

Mostly it's just hard to read... so I have to stare at it... and thats just painful because of the contrasting colours between background and foreground.

Blue text on a blue background doesn't help much.

Three things:
- The dark blue text on the black background is difficult to read. Suggest changing it to yellow, orange, or some other bright color that contrasts with the dark background.
- Each player's row looks like it is in inverse video. Can you make it transparent so the text appears directly on the background? If so, make sure to fix the text color, see item 1.
- Don't put too much code or high resolution pics on the page. Low resolution pics (up to a point) will look good on a monitor. They just aren't good if you're zooming in or printing them. Please remember some of us only have puny dial-up connections and one thing I love about Autohost is it's speed.

I have made some adjustments to the game page files and Ron will hopefully have them posted for me by the time that I find a replacement player for okram.

Even before I saw your last post I had changed it to a transparent background for the players, switched the background graphic (which I will reduce the quality of tonight to make sure it loads quickly), and changed the majority of the text on the page to white!

If it still hurts everyone's eyes too much let me know and I will have your turn file e-mailed to you! Razz

OMG

That is so much better!

It actually looks GOOD...

still...
When loading the BG image the white text just doesn't show... a bit worrying first time round.

Secondly the red text is a little hard to read... maybe that's beyond your control though.
