Designing a SR website

(1/6) > >>

John Schmidt:
So I have Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Flash, blah, blah, blah... I going through the tutorials at for using Dreamweaver and Flash. Graphics and content are not a problem (unless people don't like them but I will cross that bridge when I get there).

What makes a good fan game website?

I know its rude to commandeer your speakers and blair my sounds over them.
Pages should be limited vertically and horizontally.

But what makes a good looking website?

Doc Chaos:
If you can, avoid Flash. Go for HTML5. Also, avoid massive decorative use of graphics. Graphics should be used to set a theme and provide a frame for the content, not make it difficult to tell frame appart from content.

John Schmidt:
Why avoid Flash?

Graphics, I know can slow down a page loading. Is there a good rule of thumb for the total size for each webpage?

You can't obtain platform independance if you use Flash. If your goal is to make the website accessable to the widest audience, Flash eliminates anybody using iOS (iPad iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad) for browsing. In addition, some people see Flash as a sign of lazyness. I don't, it's simply a tool to get something done.

Doc Chaos:
Plus Flash eats performance like the economy eats the souls of the people.
