Controls are simply:
MOUSE OVER each button to see who the character is
CLICK a button to view a popup display giving a brief bio of the character
CLICK the popup display to remove it
So this is an interactive family tree introducing all the characters from the Cloud Legacy, who will all eventually feature in the ongoing fanfiction series 'Order of Midnight' - it will allow you to get to know each of the characters in a little more depth, and may even provide some sneaky insight into what the future of the fanfiction has in store
no option to edit or delete comment, sorry about the typo above.
DIS IS AWESOME...
but for some reason the whole thing can't go on my screen! BACK UP STUPID COMPUTER BACK UPPPPPP
anyway, this is a neat concept <3
btw...Althearia? really? cos' I just made a Guardian named Althearria... WHADDAHECK
Well you are quite right about the video captures - they are all done using fraps (as were the screenshots for all the still portait images used).
The BG, Portrait buttons and tree network were compiled with photoshop. The Finished file sitting here was put together with Adobe Flash. If you're familiar at all with basic coding, then scripting something like this is relatively simple since nothing was actually generated with the Flash Editor. It's really just a case of toggling object visibility
And tyvm for the kind praise
You're too kind *blush*
It was first inspired by the fact that the in game family tree wasn't capable of showing all the correct relationships and layout. I mean come on... In a world of Sith & Jedi, how can they overlook the whole Master/Apprentice thing?
Yeah it's a little on the large size isn't it
My theory was that a large image can be scaled down, where a smaller one can't be scaled up so easily
the web page
My one wish would be if it's a tad smaller to fit the webpage.
The initial idea was something that was like a giant wallchart that you browsed around, but I guess that doesn't quite carry as well onto a webpage as I'd first hoped - just makes me glad for the "ctrl -" command
16 characters ... phew, I couldnt handle so many
And errm... there's a 17th character, but since she's a 'different age' version of one of the existing ones with a different class, she didn't make it into the tree!
