EDIT : IT SEEMS I WONT TAKE ANY RESPOND ABOUT MY QUESTION. SO IF YOU CAN CHECK WWW.GAMESPOT.COM
HEADLINE NEWS FLASH AND GIVE ME ANY SCRIPT-TUTORIAL LINK LIKE THAT I'LL BE APPRECIATE
I'm trying to make xml flash headline like www.gamespot.com
news area. in fact its completely like a image gallery. there are 5 different thumbnails to reach every different big images, and all of them have title and description in it.
so I found this tutorial and its so far so good for my needs :
now I have a gallery with previous and next buttons. but actually I need thumbnails of every images instead of next previous buttons. and also I need "preload" for images. When I say preload I mean that all of images have to be loaded when flash loaded. afterwards, when user click to thumbnail, it doesnt need to load next image. also I need a transition effect like blur effect on gamespot.com. preload might be helpful in order to achieve this effect.
also I have xml question. I have 8 different news section. so it seems that I need 8 different xml file to get different news. but is there any way to make this with dynamically? I'm using php mysql.
Last question about flash player's mac version : I'm using turkish chars in my text. and "mac"'s flash doesnt like utf-8 chars unfortunately. But I notice some of sites deal with this utf-8 char problem of flash player's macintosh version.
it seems I have too much questions need to resolve :)
thank you for help.
