Great, I lost another long post because my IE *@#!ed up again.



Summarized repost:



The pages were made in Microsoft Word back in 2002 (I didn't want to mess with coding).  Then I switched to Microsoft FrontPage which allowed my flexibility with the coding but also inserted a lot of unnecessary code.  Despite a "revamp" in 2006 - which was mostly just a redesigned front page and a palette swap from black to white - the atlas pages haven't truly changed much since.  Sure, there have been minor tweaks, but nothing I'd call an overhaul.  I guess the tables made sense when I only had a few maps on each page to begin with but maybe not now when we've got over 12000 and the biggest sections have 2000+ maps each.



For the possible revamp that keeps on coming up in discussion, the atlas structure is pretty much the main concern as to why we should even have a revamp.  So if and when I get to that, expect something more dynamic and efficient, ie. only pulling up the requested information.

That's why you should use Firefox.



But, glad to know you're at least aware of the problem, have you looked into PHP any?

See, I didn't realize it loaded all the images.

That's kinda really REALLY bad website design (no personal offense to Jon), but wow.

I mean it should take MINUTES to load a page on a cable modem. There's just sooo many other ways to do it that it doesn't suck up the bandwidth/kill a computer.

This was actually something I noticed a while ago. But for some reason when going to a page that has a lot of maps (SNES, NES) the page takes FOREVER to load. Now I'm not talking about the maps themselves, they load fine, but the actual page with the links to the maps.

I've tried it with my main computer, my laptop and my school computer and all three have the exact same problem(two running Firefox and the school running IE) so I doubt it's me.

Most of the time on SNES it's so bad it stalls out my computer and I have to Alt-ctrl-del the browser.

Anyone else have the same or a similar issue?

It actually wasn't too bad to map. The only place I had any problems with the Fg/Bg was level 7, most of the others stay stationary.

As for the emulator, I used 'Reality Boy' with the Key to Joy program and just went through snapping shots every 3-5 seconds or so.

I honestly don't see how anybody could do it any other way, it would just be SOOOOO slow.

Thanks for the encouragement though, TerraEsperZ.

Thanks for the kind words, guys. I did notice two places where I had a color layering issue, I guess I should probably get that fixed pretty quick.
