Please?!!

Can You Please Tell Me If It works on Windows Vista? By the way, it was awsome!

jpoke89 responds:

No, as Vista only has an image as the "start" button. You might be able to try editing the classic mode, but otherwise this will NOT work on Vista. Sorry.

impressed but not much

all u did was somehting in steve sinchaks book, it is pretty cool but pointless, u shouldve shown somehting cool, also wats witht he low resolution most people that r into this stuff have a cool layout and high resolution
but besides that it is pretty cool


jpoke89 responds:

I'm not sure what book you are talking about. At the time I thought it was pretty cool, because I was relatively new at tinkering with my computer. I also had to lower the quality of the video so Newgrounds would take the flash file (as you can see at the load screen, it's a large file with the low quality, imagine if it was high quality/high res!) and I reduced the screen resolution to 800x600 so it can easily fit in your browser window and still be readable. My resolution is usually a wide screen resolution, because I have a laptop, and the wide screen would throw most people, especially with factory desktop boxes through a loop, and wouldn't be able to see the whole thing. I'm a web designer, so I know how to edit media so it works for the most people viewing the content. This video works on Windows 95 and above using Microsoft Internet Explorer v. 5.0 and above or Firefox 1.5 and above or Opera 7 or higher, MacOS 7.0and above with at least Netscape 5 or higher or Safari current build, and Linux Kernel 2.2.26 and above with Konqueror or Firefox 1.5 or above or Opera 7 or above. Hail the geekeyness! :)
