    Question Snow Effect

    http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex3/snow.htm

    I would like this DD to follow down the whole page. Is there someone that can direct me on how to do this?

    Thanks. Irish.

    What doctype are you using on the page? If most any, the script needs to be updated. Change all instances of:

    document.body

    in the script to:

    iecompattest()

    Then, add this just below the credit block:
    Code:
    function iecompattest(){
    return (document.compatMode && document.compatMode.indexOf("CSS")!=-1)? document.documentElement : document.body
    }

    To tell you the truth, I was working earlier today on a modification of the snow script that made bubbles move up the page. I discovered that that script was a bit cpu intensive, to put it mildly. The snow one probably is also, since it uses the same basic movement engine. I found that the Autumn Leaves script was a bit more PC friendly. You might consider using it with snowflake images, I think it also needs the above modification (iecompattest) though. Still, might just be your implementation, post a link to what you've got and I'll check it out.

    I am actually working on the snow effect using clovers since this is an irish site... lol.. leave it to the irish to be difficult... i am actually working on two probs, the second being my sound not loading properly... i got the new code to load but it is still drifting down partially... shouldnt there be a calculation within the code that specifies how far down the page, or up the page in the bubble instance... if i find a solution to your or my prob before your next post i will let you know... good luck with the bubble effect.... it's always fun trying to re-route everything to how you want something to present itself...
