Thread: Impressive Intro.

  1. #1
    http://www.acompsolutions.com/

    I grabbed this from the Dylanjamesmonroe.com Newsletter. What really impressed me was the way it was put together. It does everything a good intro is supposed to do, introduce the consumer to the business. Even though it doesn't have the most effects in the land of flash intros, I still think it beats alot of others that use extreme effects but make no sense.

    A++ work in my opinion.

    Whatcha guys think?

    I thought it was pretty good. The music sounded pretty sweet.

    yeah the framerate is nice, the whole thing is smoothly done......but I find its lacking...the oomf...like I would do something more interesting in the background while the things are blinking...

    It serves it's purpose but there's nothing that hasn't been seen or done before.

    One thing I must say is that on the dylanjamesmonroe site there is Times New Roman text in some horribley small size which looks terrible. Surely if they can produce a nice little intro they could make sure their site's front page has some cred to it.

    it looks average to me, but no one seems to have mentioned the most important errors from any designers point of view.

    a/ no skip button
    b/ it plays everytime you visit the site and there is no skip button!!!!

    what are they thinking??? It's stuff like this that gives people like nielsen all the fodder they need.

    I believe you are wrong there Aversion. I can't play the intro again, seemingly because of cookies. I'm not going to take the time to delete the cookies anyway...

    You might have security set real high on your browser or something *shrug*

    You are right though. A skip button is important. On the other hand, since it's only meant to play once, I think it's not that big of a deal. A skip button sort of ruins the feel.

    that's odd, I tried going to that domain several times and it always played the intro again, other sites don't. Odd, maybe my cache is too full of internet.com cookies.

    yeah i'm having the same problem that aversion is having. The intro still plays even after i revisit it. That's annoying. And I tried it on 4 different comps with 3 different browsers... same thing. All my cookies are on, and my security setting is low. What a very unprofessional site. :-D

    It's been said, but I want to say it again.

    Where is the skip button?

    Because of there being no skip button, WORST_INTRO_EVER.

    Yep. You guys are right. That's weak that it isn't compatible with every browswer.. very very sloppy.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding Aversion.. I really thought that it was just you :P I still like the intro though.
