The images don't seem to animate... Does it only animate under specific conditions?

Comment #2 Monday, August 02, 2004 1:28 PM
Reble: Can you be a bit more specific?

Will: No, but many of the animations for sun and cloud are subtle.

Some animations are more obvious than others. The rain one is very obvious while the sun one is very subtle.

Great job _Martin_ but how do I get it to Animate?

Comment #5 Monday, August 02, 2004 3:59 PM
It is always animated - just subtly.

Okay, Specifics it is

When in less Mode, Instead of Display all the text, Barnstaple, United Kingdom, it only displays nstaple, United Kingdom. The Begining text is Missing. Try it for yourself the code is UKXX1463

excellent widget martin. thanx. now if i could only have multiples showing different locations, that would complete it. seems like i read somewhere where you were explaining how it could be done but i can't seem to find it again. i tried putting copy in different directory with no luck. any ideas?

OK guys, I goofed sorry!

When I made Reble's change I updated the wrong object, overwrote my work and uploaded it!

I remade the object this morning and it should work fine.

this version runs like cr*p on my pc, starts slow, then uses up to 97% and 289mb ram, doesnt animate, and crashes my explorer. cant even get time to adjust it to my location before have to kill the process.

Hey! I like it! LOL
I *don't* like that it sucks up between 25 - 32 Megs of RAM. What's up with that?
Chunks the whole system up something awful.
Really cool idea, though. Like the animations, too.

*sent* ... hope u can fix it for me, _Martin_

*andyberry* ... ur lucky it only sux up 25-32megs .... it was eating 300mb on my pcs ...

Martin, can you tell us what animation software was used for the images? The anti-aliasing is outstanding, making the movement very smooth even at 20fps. Ulead GIF Animator certainly can't do it.

andyberry: considering that it requires an instance of Internet Explorer to get the data which is about 15-20MB on it's own I think the object itself is very compact memory wise.

Will: Not sure - mormegil did the animations.
