  1. Grr.. sorry guys I forgot to post to staff, will soon.

    Alex: Some of yours went 404, I think the speed is good for referral banners but needs to slow down the ending frames and also remove some grainyness.

  2. You mean they wouldn't load by 404? I'm not sure how to fix that, but you were using a lower quality version hence the graininess, so that's fixed as well as the speed:

  3. Much better on speed/frames, but the grainyness is still there.

    Maybe remove 2 of the background images ? That will cut down on size and allow more room for quality.

  4. It looks pretty good actually. It doesn't have to be top quality, does it?
  5. Already do :p

    What you have is top quality possible with Photoshop, but I've started working on a common background version to try out for quality.
  6. As you can see it's not...quite done, but this is the jist (have to re-do some sort of transition, takes forever) of it.

  7. hey thats my res!

  8. Looking good, just need to slow down the change of text and i think thatll be what we need!

    BTW - Contest is being voted on right now, will have results in 2-3 days.
  9. The text is going a little bit fast:p It's kinda funny how we try to fire our advantages at them.

  10. Yeah, that's what I mean when I say changing the transitions - hopefully it'll save time not having to make them slide in but it's a pain to make them have any appearance action at all, I'll try no transition at all first
  11. Here we go:

    As you can see there's a little visual glitch with the shadows, it's because there's multiple logos visible in certain layers and that makes the shadow deeper, so I need to fix that tomorrow
