Update to KGI Virtual Tour

The tour itself is very nice. The issues I see, as a V/T guy, is it took a little long to load. The initial load bar is covering some of the text. I personally think there are to many "things" on the viewing screen. I would suggest moving most if not all of the navigation buttons off of the viewing screen. Other that those few small things I think it is great, the voice over is very good quality as is the photography.

Hi

Nice photography. I have a 8Mb broadband down link and the tour took about 38 seconds to load which I think is too long to wait. In my opinion, I thought there was too much clutter on screen and the voice over seemed a little distorted. The rotation speed was fine on the first pano but increased when the next scene displayed during the tour. When you click on a pano and stop the rotation, I cant see how to resume the tour as there isnn't a play button. The voiceover could be enhanced with a little background music. I dont mean to criticise but rather to only offer my opinion. I know that you have done a fair amount of work to get it this far and my points are really quality tweaks.Good luck.

Miguel,

I downloaded and viewed yesterday and it took only 24 seconds from click to fully functioning view via my very slow by International standards 1.5mbps connection.

It can come down to the host server.

Regards, Smooth

I viewed it again and it took about 25 seconds to load this time, not bad. I see you did clean up the viewer, much better. The only problem I saw this time is the very first scene is zoomed in to far. It appears to be "sliding" across the viewer instead of turning like the other scenes do.
PS: I agree with Willie above, I think you need a "auto play" button. There is no way to resume the movie if it is interrupted.

Looks like you've got it now. You had it centered before but it's not now.
Great job, I know you put a lot of time into this tour.
