View Full Version : Garrett at work!!

13th Jul 2002, 03:41
Here's a link to something I made. Now, this is about 218 kb, so it takes awhile to fully load (not too much time, but enough), because it contains TONS of frames; I might adjust the quality at a later date, I'm not sure. ANYWAYS, without further ado, I present: GARRETT AT WORK!! http://www.geocities.com/thiefplayer/GarrettAnimation1.gif
(You'll have to copy and paste the URL into a browser, as Geocities won't allow linking:mad: ). Also, it is MEANT to move really rapidly (I know sometimes that irratates people, but this time it was necessary:D).
Lemme know whatcha think. :)

[EDIT: URL updated - new, slower version (the frames used to last for a tenth of a second; now they last for a quarter of a second) - also lower quality, so it loads faster. (The quality difference is hardly visible:))]

Try this:
Right click on the URL and select Save Target As and save it to your desk top.
Then go to File>Open , click on browse, select GIF as the file type, and load the gif into IE.

Apparently our new home shortens URLs for our reading convenience. If you don't want it do do that (say if you're giving a GeoCities, etc. link, which can't be clicked on but must be copied), make sure that the Automatically Parse URLs option below is unchecked.

Or you can click to open the link in a new window, copy the URL from the title bar of the new, non-displaying window, and paste the URL into your old window, then hit the Back button when you're done.

I liked it--maybe they could use this at the beginning of T3. :)

What I did to get to the site was to click the link in THEThief's posting which got me a page saying the site was unavailable. BUT since the complete address was now entered in my browser, I just hit the "Go" button & the page loaded.

Hey, that was great! I wish it was bigger, make a good screen saver. :D
Make them slower to change, so you can appreciate it more. Not so fast. That was cool.
Thanks for sharring. :)

I took the files from the Thief directory. Unfortuanetely, they are the full size. :( (I can't make them any bigger, without making them reaaallly blurry). I will update the speed thing - fast is good, but that IS too fast. :D
Thanks for the suggestions!! :)

Poor Garrett is gonna get tired lugging all those taffers around.

Thanks TR and CYF, I was able to see it that way.
