looks cool for a start. I'm guessing there will be more content...

if you are looking for advice... it might be cool the have the action happen on a roll over... compaired to clicking the menu buttons (resume, ect...) but if not... it still works good

i'm glad you didnt give in to a long, annoying intro...

what else do you plan to do with it?

Hello again, Scott! :)
Thanx for suggestion, i think you are right. I'll change it.
Added logo on screeen and provisional preloader.

hi to you,

my first impression of the tweens was maybe that your frame rate is alittle low ...... MAYBE it looks alittle jumpy ... i think it would look great if the fps was upped more.

hey the F is cool in the TV ........ it looks as if your looping movie goes to and plays frame 1 .... this means the end and start frame are the same which is why it kinda skips abit at the end of the rotation ... try gotoAndPlay(2); and that should get you a nice seemless rotation.

nice tweens on your roll out ish menus ... the bounce is nice .. maybe could do with the upped fps again .............. and maybe frame the sub menu items in a small black box with an alpha.

my 2 cents .... this is comming along well.

looking good...

goto and play (2)... yeah thats something that I figured too mmproj has good advice...

Very good with the preloader... I know this makes me sound like a dunce but I never figured that out... How do you add a preloader?

I like the simplicity of the menus... i dont think you need a black box...

I like the site and im looking forward to some good content!

re: the black boxes ..... i agree they look good atm ....... my comment was more of a pre-emptive thing cause when you start getting your content framed and in there ...... there will be lots of other black text which may cause some confusion.... so something MAY need to be done to easily distinguish your menu items from actual content.

food for thought ........ its just a comment to help you ... keep it up your sites good !

EDIT: ... woops and preloader tut for you scott .... is GREAT for learning new flash stuff!

heya mate!

nice preloader everything is realy nice now the last comment i have is ..well theres this blank white space under the menu i think u should try to make those popup (black windows) open in that position,u can set the location of the popup!

thats all aside for that i love your site!
