EasyRead Wheel of fortune

EasyRead Wheel of fortune

So my Co-founder Anna suddenly had an idea to give out promotion using a fun game of wheel of fortune. So we had decided to built one. First research Wheel of Fortune. There is 3 which i think is great. HTML5+ javascript http://www.dougtesting.net/winwheel http://tech.pro/tutorial/1008/creating-a-roulette-wheel-using-html5-canvas http://www.html5canvastutorials.com/labs/html5-canvas-wheel-of-fortune/ Jquery http://www.jquery4u.com/animation/jquery-wheel-fortune-demo/ Let’s get crackin I liked the Jquery one but the Jquery version had some bugs with IE .Decided to go with: http://www.dougtesting.net/winwheel Unzipped the whole folder into geteasyread Change info and remove the code to choose the strength Needed to force javascript refresh instead of keep clearing my cache but you could put your browser in developer mode as well.

Used PureCss to built the page and form. Used Medoo as micro php framework for database. Important as it has security to Prevent SQL injection. Remember to turn on error report when developing. After modifying the pureCSS I needed some simple validation. Ok both items are working well individually. Now we need to merge them. First we need to be able to save inputs from form. Now that we are able to identify who the spinner is, we just need user to spin the wheel and we capture that and automatically save it. First we need to be able to save the value from the javascript spin. We do that by using javascript to save the value...

Schimmelbusch Music Video

A music video made for schimmelbusch for their song “The clock stops once” Lesson learnt, when doing animation that you will want to export as a movie. Do not use anything fancy like actionscripting or loops in movie clips. Do the standard on main stage animation. Anything else you will have to use a record while the swf is playing converters. which was what i have done. Quality would be sacrificed. Enjoy 😀 Youtube FLV version SWF...
