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.


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

Hey, Did you notice the Fade ins COOL Moves?

There were quite a few and I even animated a buton or two- Roll over point 4 a couple of times.

Yes I did and Iím jealous !!! :)

I still havenít mastered that yet... I could get my first picture to fade out, but I couldnít get my second picture to fade in afterwards. Iím 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.
