    nice site... the little game is great, quite addictive!
    Really liked that - but couldn't you set it up so that the site loads while I'm busy with the game...? - That'd be perfect, I think...

    Not sure about the constant spinning logo, bit too much contrast on colour for it to almost fade into the background. Too busy for reading...?
    I recently did a very busy site, where the clients wnated an animated bakcground... so I've looked at that a lot... not to say that I'm right here - just another opinion...

    And maybe you could make the button hit area reach more toward the right, covering the text location as well, I found it easy - but people still get confused with stuff like that ... just a thought....

    Overall, loved the game, the layout and colour combination!!!

    Keep on flashin

    Thanx for the advise

    Thanx for ur advise...

    i tried to use the game as a preloader but it wouldnt work... it just wouldnt get of the stage even not with unloadMovieNum, but I didnt give up yet...

    I didnt quite understood what u ment with the spinning logo.. should I change the colors? make it stop spinning? both? just the logo or the other 3D movieclips aswell?

    Thanx a bill again

    About the logo... I think it looks good, the colours are a bit too strong in contrast with the background and the colour behind the text. - I think I would put it all the way behind everything - maybe set the colour behind the text to a lower opacity to see the spinning logo through a little bit... and also fade it out a bit more - have you tried setting the Effect to a certain brightness percentage, to simply wash out the colours a little bit more - then going to the advanced settings and lowering the alpha value in there.
    With this technique I think you'll be able to keep it in there and turn it into a very subtle effect - it does look great! Just a little bit too busy....

    Hope this helps...

    yea i know what u mean with 'umph' I kinda saw it too but I couldnt define it. The technical part is better than the design.... Does anybody recommond good webdesign books where they discuss designing?

    All of my books are about scripting Maybe I need to focus on design a bit more now and less on devellopping

    Thanx for ur opion,..

    its well appreciated

    Nice site.But I don't like the navigation buttons and the scripting you made for them.First-why do they have to go almost to the other side of the screen and Second-I don't like when you push them,they go so much to the right that I can't see the labels.But I like the spinning logo alot.Well that's from me.Keep up the nice work.

    very simple! very clean... too clean? your style is unique to say the least.

    The game is nice but i didnt have any idea it was a game. Until it was too late! The site is missing something. I just didnt get that excited!

    Even if there is only one, unique set of possible laws, it is only a set of equations. What is it that breathes fire into the equations, and makes a universe for them to govern. why does the universe bother to exist? Is the ultimate unified theory so compelling, that it brings about its own existence, or does it need a creator, and if so who created it? - credits SH

    Could it be?

    It seems that everyone is missing something... (I do agree)
    but what is it? Could it be sound? Maybe I need some background sounds? Like an ambience or something?

    How do I solve this thingie that make the site look so empty?
