Floater banners? Help

Hey all!!!
I was wondering if anyone knows how to make those floater things that appear on sites time to time usually advertising something. I think there made with flash…
If anyone can explain how to make them or point me to a tutorial it would be of great help.

I attached screenshot of one of them if you didnt understand what i was talking about…

Are you sure you want to make one? They are pure evil. The most irriatating thing that can possibly be done to a browser. Worse than popup.

Well im interested in knowing how they work and then I would like to integrate one into my site instead of using a popup, my interest is not advertising:)

Oh and what do u mean by pure evil? lol

It would be great if you could help me…

Can someone please help me???

read macromedias’ news…

param name=“Wmode” value=“Transparent”

and layers

Im sorry but I dont understand…
Could you be a bit clearer pls:)

Well aside from them being pure pure pure evil, they only work in IE on Windows, so aside from the script to get that to work you need a script to check browser and tell it to load if it is the right browser. Which isn’t hard, but it makes it more evil that is discriminates against browsers :stuck_out_tongue:


K thx for the information and thx for the link :slight_smile:
Btw is there any good alternatives to these pure evil floating banners?

lost - not true - it worx on nsc too…

Transparent Windowless backgrounds on Flash movies don’t work in Netscape fluid_one. So unless you want a big solid block over your content :wink: (assuming nsc is your very odd way of saying netscape)


Kirupa wants us to keep this place clean, so could you please change your avitar to something less provocative…

This isn’t a party line after all…



lost - go to http://www.macromedia.com/support/flash/ts/documents/wmode.htm
and read it carefully…:sigh:

yes - nsc = NetSCape

Its NetScape not NetSCape…lol, im just used to seeing NS or NSN (netscape navigator), never saw nsc before that I can recall.

And wow, I swear I have the most recent player and transparent flash doesn’t work. I tested it just to make sure, it doesn’t work for me. Interesting. I may reinstall the plug-in, see what happens.

Thanks for that link, I woulda been clueless to this since it doesn’t work for me.

Wow, that was weird. I removed then reinstalled the Flash Plugin for Mozilla and now it DOES work.

I just updated my plugin last week when I re-downloaded Mozilla, so I wonder why it didn’t work. Eh, oh well, it works now and that is all that matters to me.

told ya!

np btw :beam:

You most definitely did :stuck_out_tongue:

And I am glad.



btw - not every dubm-***** is as dumb as it appears… or something like that… :crazy:
