    Ha Ha-

    I left some things out.

    You need to animate the text in point 1.

    In point 4 whatever you type replaces your text.

    -Enjoy

    PS. The music was the loop of the day today.

    Yes I did and I’m jealous !!!

    I still haven’t mastered that yet... I could get my first picture to fade out, but I couldn’t get my second picture to fade in afterwards. I’m wondering if Flash might be what I should be using for this project.

    The method that I took was to sandwhich the fading elements with a screen that looked like the background. Hide- Transparancy=0 Show Transparancy=255.


    The visible buttons aren't buttons really buttons. The real buttons are the invisible sticky spots- I'm calling them that for a lack of a better term. They are completly transparent buttons on the forward most layers that activate the button animations and other effects. I did this becuse once you convert a shape to a symbol any changes you make happen to all of the shapes.

    I'll make another SWF tutorial on how I'm doing that next. Expect it by Friday.
