Wide Layout Update 3 2009-06-05 20:31:23 Reply

Goldfish has just launched the third series of updates to the new wide view page. Here's what has changed:

1) Ad-Blocker users no longer get a broken layout.
2) If you turn the lights off and on, your browser's back button will work as expected and not toggle page elements.
3) The page should now appear to load faster, as the ads don't start loading until the page itself has loaded!

So less lag, less bugs... An overall better experience!

In other news...

Adam Atomic has just released flixel! What is flixel? To quote Adam:

"flixel is a completely free collection of Actionscript 3 files that helps organize, automate, and optimize Flash games; an object-oriented framework that lets anyone create original and complex games with thousands of objects on screen in just a few hours, without using any of the Flash libraries."

There's a lot of potential for flixel to usher in a new universe of awesome Flash games, so we're offering a $250 prize to the best flixel-made game submitted to NG in the next month! If you make a flixel game and submit it before July 5th, PM me with a link!

Check out the Acapella Music Collab!

BTW some stuff accidentally got pushed from staging that implied the Art Portal might be going live tonight. Sorry, it isn't! More news on that later.

Can we digg this?


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

I've started to love the wide layout, it sucked at first but it's so much better than old pop-up now.

Thank God. I was having a few problems before where the place where the Flash should have been playing was just a white rectangle, but that seems to have been fixed.

Excellent!

I noticed that little error first. Do I get a prize?

Also, I'm not noticing the changes in the layout too much. But I guess it's good news for those who did experience bugs and lag.

Dugg & enjoyed. Why didn't I see that earlier? :D

Also on the not wide screen pages some of the nav buttons up top are messed up still, but I'm probably pointing out the obvious.

One problem... I'm using Safari, and no ad-blocker, and now I get a broken layout! The Flash Portal button appears like 35 pixels too long and pushes the Store button onto a new line, also, there's a button under the tank that says "Check out the New Art Portal" but it's a dead link...

I've tried clearing my cache, but no luck...

I was about to send angry PM's about the whole "back button and lightening/darkening pages," but you guys got it covered.

Also, I demand my Art Portal.

I think I am more interested in all of these updates that have appeared in the FAQ section.

And that Art portal link.

BTW the changes to the ads are across the site, so any page that has just a top and bottom banner should load a lot faster now. Pages with additional ads need to be addressed individually still.
