Testing of new tour. Help Please

Hello,

Really Just looking at traffic so click away and try out the "Tell A Friend" send it to every one you can. Please post up with any and all comments.

We are not finished yet just looking for major problems.

We still have to add music and roll over for on and off, labeled arrows, Help text window content, and the site that is around it is not ours just for testing so it is not working and there links on left in ie 7 just just fire fox. Will be embedded in there site when complete.

Help needed--
1. Features links on the bottom do not work on MAC any ideas on how to fix would be great?

2. In Fire Fox you can only have one tour open at a time any ideas. Just thinking they may launch one and minimize and try the other and it will not play.

Let us know what you think.

Kevin who all you veterans know, is the man behind the code. He has really out did him self.

Any one that has comments and is not a forum member please e-mail me at mike@newspin360.com

Thank you,

Mike

Hey Mike,  I really like that !  Simple easy to use navigation.  And who said buttons had to look like jelly beans.

Perfect! Just love the way the things not included in tourweaver are done in html, like the google maps option. And ofcourse that the mouse over effect in the html and the tour are the same. Also like the lightbox popups.
Kudo's for Kevin, whatever you're paying him, it's not enough ;-)

Thanks Vilmer!

You are so right! Mike is not paying me enough

That's ok, I'm a nice guy. Using Thickbox for the popup was a bit tricky... there is a conflict with Java Applets that make the pano show though on a Mac and some older IE browsers... but IE 6,7 and FireFox look ok so we decided to give it a try.

I can't wait for the flash version of TW. I was playing with another flash viewers this week that is very cool:

http://demo.newspin360.net/flashpanoplayer/pano.html

There is an image on the corner of the bar (looks like it is laying on the bar - it is sort of dark red) and the same image at your feet. Click on them to see some very cool interactive features. This is not an Easypano viewer (I will not name the viewer here at of respect for Easypano) - but it really starts to show the power of using flash. I hope Easypano can begin to incorporate some of these new technologies soon. The future of our work is more interactive, closer to virtual reality!

Hi Kevin,

I have seen a demo of that player, with a ticking clock on the wall, a video playing on a monitor and more cool gadgets. The guy who is developing that kicks serious butt.
It's clear that flash is the future for virtual tours. And thats also why I don't understand that Easypano is spending so much time in java, with all its memory and backwards compatibility problems. By the time all bugs are killed, a new java version will force them to start over again.

Btw, why do you prefer Thickbox over Lightbox?

Yes, Kevin is under paid, but has my greatest respect.  Respect is hard to put a price on.  LOL 

Thank you for the comments Vilmer, but no more reminding Kevin of his worth please.  He has a big head as it is.  LOL

Question: is it possible to make the button bar about 60% smaller.  After all the object is to show the clients product.. the resturant atmosphere...

I am disregarding the pan tilt zoom stat's box on the left side.

Just a thought.

Vlimer,

As I understand it Lightbox is often only for images, Thickbox allows for content - I use it with seperate html file, sort of like an iFrame.

Dave,

Not only can you alter the size of the buttons you can do it without re-creating the button image. This is an xml based viewer. The GUI on the left is for altering hotspots on the image which includes navigation buttons. If you want to play try this. In the GUI on the left, select the drop down at the top that reads "pano",

Select info

Under scaleX: alter the number, it is 1 now, you can go up or down and this will change the size of the info button.

You can also play with the other items. I like alpha which affect the translucent nature of the button - allows the pano to show in the back.

Don't worry these changes do not affect my files. You would need to "copy XML" and use the resulting code in the file to make the changes. Have fun.
