Hi to everyone.

I've recently updated my website http://banqit.altervista.org/ and just thought i'd share it with you.

We have finally unveiled our new project "Neva" (which is the prequel to Cypherians Systems..). Screenshots and Trailer are rolling in, so stay tuned.

Be sure to bring some popcorn and joypad for the official announcement

Hope you like.

I have to load the JavaVM for a menu, which doesn't give me a choice for what I want to look at? Popcorn indeed.

The cube looks nice though.
Now do it in Flash, and give us the possibility to navigate directly to a menu item.
Cypherian

Flash is beyond my understanding, I'd never use it because of my inexperience towards Flash. I could've ask someone else to help me, but the only thing that keept me optinal at the moment is to use java. For now, I have to stick for it.

I'm always looking for talented individuals so, you're welcome to give it a try if it's really necessary

And a Html version is on the way, as we speak

Oh, and thanks for the feedback bronko

Nooo, not Flash!
Bronko

Flash beats Java in the browser as far as things should be done on the client's side...
For this thing in flash, I wouldn't even see, that something must be loaded. No waiting, and no ugly coffee mug in a white box.
It would just be there, in a "flash"!

But sorry, I've got no time for it.

...And it could be even made in javascript, using non-looping gifs and a hidden preloader.
Robert

It would all be the same in Flash. You don't wait for Java, you wait for Rekli's graphics - the JavaVM was already initialized when you see the coffee mug. Of course it is appropriate to replace the coffe mug (a parameter for the applet tag) and create a small jar that loads the graphics after itself started and provides it's own loading screen.
Cypherian
29.11.08
Wow, can you really replace the coffe mug with it's own loading screen? I never knew that, Thanks for the tip!

So what are the requirements and how can I do it?
Robert
30.11.08
The best way to do it is to implement both of those:

Well then, now I've got a java applet on my site, too. Find it and then try to replicate it in Flash
Cypherian
30.11.08
Thanks for the links Robert, but I'm still confused about those parameter. I certainly don’t claim to be an expert on HTML, but is there any chance for you to edit my html code and replace a jar file with gif animation if I send you one?

And let me guess, your java applet is the music?
Robert
30.11.08
Yes, it's the music - a Java Sid-Player. Just have a look at its html code: http://turricanforever.de/music?start=true
Cypherian
30.11.08
Very nice! Is there a java mod-player?
Robert
30.11.08
Of course. http://www.quippy.de/mod_en.php (for example, it's not the only one).
Bronko

Nice applet, no mug in my tray, no waiting.

Flash should be afraid, but wait.... who's got a Java VM installed, and who a Flashplayer? Ohhh, poor Coffee Coders!
Robert

We all know, Flash is pro!

It rhymes, it must be true!
Robert
30.11.08
You can't even be a Flash pro without Java anymore (Flex is all implemented in Java).
Cypherian
30.11.08
I still need some help!
Robert
30.11.08
You have more than 20 employees, I'm sure at least one of them has a little programming experience and can help you out.
Cypherian
30.11.08
While it's true that I have more than 20 people for this project, it's pretty ironic that none of them appears to be a programmer. It mostly consist of music artists, voice actors, beta testers and script editors but can't hurt to ask them anyway
Robert
30.11.08
"Script Editors" are programmers, go ask them.
Cypherian
30.11.08
Those so called "Script Editors" are cheking the dialogues, story and plot script for the game. Ensuring that the grammar and spelling are correct and comprehensive written.

I may used the wrong terminology for them, silly me. I better find something more suitable

Got any suggestions?
Robert
