This is the "new improved" version! You should have (not) seen it before!

Or is it that I'm creating the mag in InDesign, and well done shadows just look cool! :D
(going horribly off-topic now, sorry for that already)

Yeah I know, I use InDesign as well, isn't it ace? I did the DEF Tribute to Zzap! with it as well. (although I have troubles getting my pdf's right with InDesign CS2, I guess I shouldn't have upgraded, grrr)

Of course it's mostly about the designers behind a mag, but it surely makes a big difference creating something ultra cool looking in Quark (like Retro Gamer v1) or in InDesign. ('new' Retro Gamer)
Ex-RG designer Mat Babe complained big time that he had to use Quark to do the mag, hehe.
Flicking through issue 19 I could tell it was an InDesign job. :D

Back on topic: umm...uh (oh well) :wink:

Hi koopa42,

Give me a bit of time and I'll definitely change it for you. Thanks for letting me know.

Scrollers and buttons

Post by tinylee » Thu Dec 08, 2005 11:50 am

All done,

Changed things a little so it is easy to see the scroller in IE and also the different posts.

Also made the gel buttons transparent for those eagle eyed users :D

Well, compared to the boring Future Publishing websites, the Imagine sites in general are positively delicious - although watching "intros" all the time is a bit tedious... "skip" buttons are useful... :wink:

I do agree with Graig, however. Perhaps a combination of HTML and flash as the site develops is the way to go.

Nice effort though! 8)

Should probably be in a Forum thread, but any chance of a link back to the website on the forum header?

Oh, and another thing...

On the sample mag, why are the Speccy Perfect 10 pages the wrong way round? (apologies if this has already been mentioned).

I'm sure this has already been mentioned (but I can't find it anywhere in this thread), but according to the web site, the next issue is out on 5th January 2005.

Whilst I applaud the magazine for covering all-things retro, it'd be nice if I didn't have to travel back in time to pick up next month's mag ;)

I like a lot of websites built in Flash as long as you can skip any intros etc
