Help, I Broke It!

P: n/a
Hey - anybody out there want to help a poor soul who don't know what he's
doing?? I tried to modify a script from dynamicdrive.com, to handle my
graphic. The original version works fine for me on IE6, NS7, and FF1.0. My
modified version works fine on IE, but won't work on NS or FF. If anyone has
time to take a peek at my script and help my mend my ways, I sure would
appreciate it.

I took a look, but it made horrible noises, so I closed that window
and won't be going back.

Sorry about that. I deleted the midi and the flash file, so it should be
quiet now. I would really appreciate your help, if you don't mind.

The modified version does not "work" in my IE. Typically, anything you
get from DynamicDrive is not worth the time it takes to copy/paste it.
Ditch it, learn script, and write a real script to do what you want.

At a glance, it looks like you've set Xpos to a negative number and
then keep subtracting from it. It just keeps going further out to
the left of the window.

Hey Mick - What's supposed to happen is a biplane.gif moves across the web
page, right to left. It works fine for me in IE6. In NS7 and FF1, the page
width has been increased, placing the gif image off-screen to the right,
with no movement. It's visible by scrolling right, but it does not "fly"
across the screen. The "problem" is that I don't know how to fix it, so that
it runs properly in the other two browsers. :-(

Using FF 1.0.7 the Hugo Duarte CD Biplane flew from right to left just as
seems to have to. It did it just once though.

Seemed ok to me.

Hey Robi - thanks for the feedback. That's what it was supposed to do.
Apparently, the problem was not related to the script. The page originally
had a "loose" Doctype statement. That didn't bother IE, but seemed to be a
problem with NS and FF. When I removed the Doctype, the script appeared to
run fine. I'm not sure what other problems that may lead to, but I'm giving
it a shot. At this point, I'm trying to create a link from the biplane.gif
to another web page. Any suggestions? Thanks again for your help.
