    Default Kosovo discussion

    This is a discussion thread for the following file:

    Kosovo

    This file includes two maps of Kosovo.

    "Kosovo has a government of its own, with an Albanian president and prime minister. Independence is close. Yet all the problems remain.



    Pristina is 30 years behind the times. There are power-cuts every day. Unemployment is nearing 55%."

    Does anybody like the new way of presenting multiple placemarks/overlays, or do you prefer the older method of just one picture of many?

    Because I wanted to ask people that submit files, not just mods, besides, maybe this file's creator didn't like the way I made the thumbnail, so I asked the whole community

    Maybe add a smoother fade.



    PHP Code:
    function fadeOut(objId,opacity) {
      if (
    document.getElementById) {
        if (
    opacity >= 0) {
           
    document.getElementById(objId).style.MozOpacity opacity/100;
           
    opacity -= 10;
           
    window.setTimeout("fadeOut('"+objId+"',"+opacity+")"100);
        }
      }

    Just to let you know Zothip, He can't change the fade by using programming.

    If you have a PHP script that is set to MIME code output as PNG, you can overlay it.

    Which means if you have a group of images of one area, you can flip through the images using the overlayed PHP, and allow the network refresh to get the new image.



    PHP Code:
    <?php

    header
    ("Content-type: image/png");
    $string $_GET['text'];
    $im    imagecreatefrompng("images/button1.png");
    $orange imagecolorallocate($im22021060);
    $px    = (imagesx($im) - 7.5 strlen($string)) / 2;
    imagestring($im3$px9$string$orange);
    imagepng($im);
    imagedestroy($im);

    ?>
    PHP Code:
    <?php
    // Set the content-type
    header("Content-type: image/gif");

    $fontsize 18;
    if(@
    $_GET['fontsize']) {
       
    $fontsize $_GET['fontsize'];
    }
    $font 'yourcustomfont.ttf';
    $text = @$_GET['text'];

    // Create the image
    $size imagettfbbox($fontsize0$font$text);
    $width $size[2] + $size[0] + 8;
    $height abs($size[1]) + abs($size[7]);

    $im imagecreate($width$height); 

    $colourBlack imagecolorallocate($im255255255);
    imagecolortransparent($im$colourBlack);

    // Create some colors
    $white imagecolorallocate($im255255255);
    $black imagecolorallocate($im000);

    // Add the text
    imagefttext($im$fontsize00abs($size[5]), $black$font$text);

    // Using imagepng() results in clearer text compared with 
    imagegif($im);
    imagedestroy($im);
    ?>

    Yes but what i'm saying is that BradG7 simply put those two images into a program,saved it as a .GIF image and uploaded the image to GoogleEarthHacks.

    I didnt download it. You can do entire phase shift lines of battle using PHP. Pretty neat, but you are limited to 1 second refresh.

    Yes, I use Ulead GIF animator 5, I don't like to use scripts or codes, to tricky, but I could. I see what you mean, Zothip< but this is just one file and it's just the fact that there will be plenty of files to do this to, and a script takes too long, this is just done in my free time
