In Mykerinos game # 31999 I'm playing yellow. and I can't see my cubes. I CAN see where they are supposed to be (there's a red cross), seems like the image is missing. All other players cubes are fine. Any suggestions?
I have tried switching to yellow color in one of my games and it works for me: the images are there.
If you have Firefox you could try right-clicking on the missing image, select "Properties" from the menu (there should be something similar in Internet Explorer) and look at the image location: it should be "http://www.mabiweb.com/modules/GM_Mykerinos/images/Cube_Yellow.png". If it is something different let me know.
it's the same in IE7: Right click -> Properties. Path is correct, except it's a gif instead of a png. But all the others are also gif-files, so that's not the problem.
I tried Firefox, and there everything is allright! %@# Microsoft :)
I changed my color in this game. All colors are OK, except yellow and purple. Very strange ... Oh well, it's just a minor problem. Or any other suggestions?
Ah ok, now I understand: for the additional colors (purple and yellow) there is only the png version, gifs are missing.
I originally used png images because they are better (24 bit depth) but later I discovered that IE6 doesn't support transparency in png images, so I switched to gif for IE browsers leaving the better png version for Firefox. But then I forgot to provide the gif version for the additional colors and never noticed it because I don't use IE.
Now I have added them, but probably the best thing to do would be to switch everyone to png version, there shouldn't be anyone still using old IE6.
And indeed: there are my cubes! Thanks for the fast respons. And for the solution!
I personally think support for IE6 and older can be stopped: everybody has had enough time to upgrade. Or (even better) change to Firefox.
