Scrolling in Chrome should be a lot better now and the background image is still there, so there's that.

Also, the [D/L] and [Link] links on the mod forums don't seem to work:


[...]

Also, the subdomains of Spellhold Studios seem to be missing. Specifically:
Classic Adventures Homepage: http://ca.spellholdstudios.net/
Readme Directory: http://readme.spellholdstudios.net/

Yeah, some links and subdomains won't work properly (yet). We'll fix this as we go along--the focus has been on making the forums work first. :)


I will look into this, some of the smilies might be deprecated (or we just used an extra smilies pack with the old version that we haven't installed yet).

The image files just hasn't been moved to the new server yet. Will fix.

The bolded letters look really off. Especially 'e'.

Could you please post a screenshot and tell me what browser (and which version) you are using? I think it's related to the font smoothing of your browser.

I have the same "problem". You can see it on a screenshot posted by Sam on the first page. The small "e" doesn't have it's hole. I don't think it's related to browser, cause for me it looks the same in Opera, chrome and ie.

I also would like plead for the return of the gray/green dots - they were so useful! :Bow: Other than that I really like the change.

Alright, I think I figured out what the problem is. You're both using Windows XP, right? Seems that XP's abysmal font rendering is the issue. What I can do is reverting to Arial or something similar for XP users and see if that fixes it, I'll post here once I make it happen.

Thanks for all the hard work guys. In case we don't say it often enough, having such a great platform to host our mods is greatly appreciated. SHS rocks! :)

Agreed :)

I second that commendation!

Wow-- Avatars! so that what you all look like!

So now, can I turn them off? I can only look at Charlton Heston so many times per day!

And btw I'm surprised now one has said "I want the old skin back" !

{I knew somebody was gonna say that.}
I do!

Apparently still has a third of 'market share'. And the best version of FF for it is 3.6.x.

Try Pale Moon, an optimized build for XP.

Nice work, guys. Some tweaking will always be needed after a site redesign. It looks great to me. I'll live with the slowness on Chrome until you experts get around to it.
I did battle with monsters, and they became me, and when I gazed into the abyss, the abyss looked away shyly.
See, it helps not to believe all the stuff that philosophers spout.

Thanks for the feedback and praise, guys, gals and inbetweeners! In the near future, I will be adding options for everyone to toggle on/off the features that are giving performance hits, such as the background, transparencies and some shadows, as well as the default font—this way you can finetune the features until you reach smooth scrolling and decent looking fonts on the vast majority of systems; all this at the expense of some visual candy, you know how it is.

hi, i wanted to say the background dragon is cool but i wanted to report a few things:

1 - the site makes the CPU usage of opera higher, what didnt happen before, i believe it may be because of these errors http://validator.w3....=Inline&group=0 or then, because of the new skin, idk, if you are interested i suggest you to submit the entire source to the validator of W3C to see if the errors could be the cause.

2 - the shortcut to the forums in the bottom of the page disappeared and this sucks since i used it to go faster at the other sub-forum i go.

3 - the choice of skin should be optional, like i said, i like the background dragon but i liked the other skin more. :/

that's it, thank you for all your work with the site/forum and for your attention.

As you see, because name of the poster is included in the topic new replies are not grouped together and it became very spamy. :(

I can't right-click on embedded images, it shows a non-working greyed-out window.

Same issue here (no window opens for me though).

And the best version of FF for it is 3.6.x.

:huh:

Based on what? I have both XP and FF 9.01 and no problems to report.

Can you even browse sites like twitter with a FF that old?
