    I got these links from Guy for the banner images, but they aren't working.

    It was just missing the /dfyfc bit.

    Ok, the banner is up. :)

    However, I would suggest that the left strip needs redoing. I'd move Tarkin and the others down, as Tarkin and the Union Jack background don't really fit together, and there's also a noticeable join on Tarkin's forehead where the left strip and banner meet.

    Other than that, it looks good!


    EDIT:
    Actually, the banner is going off the end of the page, as you can see. It's 1023 x 103 pixels when it should be 764 x 110 pixels, so we'll need to resize it.

    ah ha , It's banner time

    looks fine, being an expert in inventing EU rubbish, i can say that the apparent join in tarkins head is in fact where a death star door sliced his head open in a unseen scene from ANH when his mega space station was blown to bits by a hick from the outer rim

    Just a few comments:


    -Tarkin's hair appears twice, as it loops round :)

    -Couldn't give a XXXX? Shouldn't that be Austrailia? :)

    -Ewan McGregor, Alec Guiness and the droids look a bit squashed

    Ben, try getting the original banner images from:

    http://www.cosmic.org.uk/dfyfc/misc/banner/banner.jpg

    http://www.cosmic.org.uk/dfyfc/misc/banner/left_strip.jpg

    http://www.cosmic.org.uk/dfyfc/misc/banner/curve.jpg

    The reason this one goes off the screen is cos it was taken from the 1024 resolution images.

    The original ones shouldn't have the funny Tarkin cut thing either.

    Funny, I'm positive I used the pics from those links. ?[face_plain]

    Oh well, Tarkin looks better and the banner doesn't go right off the right hand side now.

    Maybe my resolution is set quite high but the banner goes 3/4 along the top and starts again...so I've go 2 union jacks at the top of my page.

    Is anyone else getting this?

    Otherwise, it looks good.

    You'd used banner2/ directory's images instead, Ben.. no probs! I'd blame Alpha if I was you! ;)

    I'll resize the top image some more. It's still a tiny bit too long.

    The secret is, I think, that on TFN, they've got one image as a background and another that sits on the top of the background image which is transparent. I've just got no idea how that's done... unless...

    I'll leave it up to you Sam...I trust you'll be able to sort it ;)

    Hey...I have a Scottish Banner if you have time to make it uploadable to the Scottish forums for them to take a look at.

    Righto.

    Well, I've sussed the issue with the 1024 vs 800 resolution. Sent Ben some new images for uploading, so hopefully that'll be up soonish. It was so bloody obvious!!
