Hey there.

Ahhh shucks :-[ Thanks for the feedback guys!  ;D I'm glad you like it!

As far as the off-to-the-right scroll problem goes, I'll be working on it tomorrow night. I just did a site last month with the same effect, and it worked fine in IE, so I'm not certain where the problem lies. But heck, if I got it to work right once, it will work once more, I'm sure of it  ;)

For right now, FireFox does it up proper, and I'll add that disclaimer to the page.

Now, about the banner....

I added RS so as to include the fan site that the big H seems to be the most accutly aware of (hopefully that'll give us more clout). I also did it for a feeling of inclusion.  BUT, I also placed it strategically in the middle.

I did this because, according to my psych & graphics proffesors, people tend to remember the first & last things they see in a series of like objects. And the last thing we see, we remember the most.

Also, Yak & JD last a few frames longer up on the screen, and JD has the most time - being that it's were everything started.

Feel free to shoot me down or back me up on this tho! I have no problem with changing things up. Nothing here is set in stone. Besides, I'm just going on half-remembered stuff from college - it's been a couple years, and I could very easily be wrong...

It happens - from time to time. ;)

UPDATE: The website, (u-g-p.com, ugp.t-j-p.net, or ultimategroupproject.t-j-p.net) now works on IE - at least from my computer ;D

Thanks for the heads up to evrery one who let me know about the InternetExplorer catch, and please let me know if you run into any more problems.

Thanks - Tom

PS - Elmeaux, Smarty, and Patreek, you got email - ya know... finally   :-[

It's still off to the right for me... :-\

I'm using IE6 if that helps.

site looks very nice, but how about changing that frame into a scrolling text to tell the story just like the movies.  ;)

Thanks DmG!

Great minds must think alike ;) I've been working on that very idea when I've had some free time.... In the end, it should be a nice little flash movie with the music & proper scrolling slant - when I figure out how to do it right  8)

Anyone got any tips?


ALSO, from the YAK:

it's looking even better Pendragon!!!
Would it be ok if I took a few pics of some of my customs I've made for it?  ;)

Hells yes - and thank ya kindly! As soon as we get the team nailed down, I'll be asking everyone who's made something for the project if they want their stuff put up on the site.

And sorry Brent & Ryan, for not asking you first if I could put up the trees before the site went live... I meant to, and then, well, forgot  ::)  And they went so very well with the green/blue site colors...

In the end, I'd like to see the background change randomly with shots of the scenery, buldings, and concept art from Brent, Chewie,  Patreek (that canyon is very cool), JoeRhyno, Daigo-Bah, Ryan, Glass' and whomever else would like to see their work up there.

well without having to use flash, there are java scripts that will do the scrolling slant. Flash sites are nice, but from what I hear they are a pain to build and maintain. Ive never made one in flash myself, which is why I stick to Front Page.  8)

I never got an email!  :o
I've been wondering what was up with this, but the Yakface forum where I first chimed in is always so buggy I can almost never check it. Just happened to end up here today off of a link. Let me know what needs doing.

I hear that! The only time I'm ever really ok on that site is when I'm using my school's trunk line access. My DSL just aint good enough...

Anyway, emailed & PMed ya, E> - Good to hear from you, man :)

On another note, work has set me back a little, but I've got Saturday free, expect new stuff by saturday evening y'all
