bar flashes

Post by das1234 » Mon Dec 07, 2009 10:46 am

well, since about a week the bar for horizontal scrolling keeps flashing on and off. the one for vertical scrolling is permanent and doesnt flash, but the horizontal bar(the one on the bottom) does, which is very irritating. maybe it has something to do with the snow, but im not sure about that.
my res is 1440x900, firefox running on win xp.

edit: ok, just changed the style, and seems to have gone away. maybe it is a bug with the new style.

Some things I need to know :
  • The javascript that causes the snowfall consumes a bit of CPU usage. So, if you have a relatively old hardware setup, that might cause problems. If you use Firefox and Adblock Plus, try blacklisting "http://animorphsfanforum.com/snowstorm.js".
  • What style caused you problems and what style are you using now? The proSilver SE style is in a development phase. I haven't yet integrated all the features into it, and it may be unstable.

its no hardware problem, since my pc is 15 months old.
as far as i understand the prosilver style is the one with the snow(which causes the flashes), and the SE style is the flat grey one without snow?
anyway, after blacklisting the javascript, the flashes are gone, but so are the snowflakes.
since noone else seems t have this problem, im going to assume its on my end and keep blocking the snow.

It's definitely something on your end. I tried using multiple browsers(IE 6+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari), but didn't encounter the flashing of bars.

I guess you will have to spend a snow-less Christmas on AFF. :console:
