Ok boys and girls my website is finnally up. Well kinda. The only section that is working is the front page and the Neo-Geo section. Basically it tells you how to build a MVS setup like I did.

The other stuff is more personal so I don't think you'll care much, but it'll be up soon, I hope...

Anyway if you wanna build a MVS Supergun, go <a href="http://web.njit.edu/~jal0737/" target="_blank">here</a>!

Peace

Man, I'm disappointed in you, JHendrix.
It looks like a fuming pile of manure.

Actually it's great, Although I'd finetune the images to blend in a tad bit better, the contents are great. I'll be sure to check the entire site later. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/icons/icon14.gif

You do know that this site also uses frames? I mean why do you think that side menu is always there. And to Jhendrix you got a nice site tho i recommend u use another background cause the white makes it look more empty that it actually is. I would recommend a kinda dark blue to go along with your buttons. And that means you would have to change the color of the text to white. Well just my suggestion......so take it anyway u want.
:D

I can't stand frames either. I don't even go to sites that use them.

jeebus.

whats up with all the fame hatin?

it doesnt make sense....

frames are great, and look really good when you use a custom scroll bar, or none at all.

back on topic, the site is really nice :D but some of the images were like ontop of one another, i have no idea how/why that happened, could be my browser/resolution, but im runnin ie6 in 800x600. it did it in 1024x768 as well...

10 in 2010
08-02-2002, 10:18 AM
well duh if you go to the neo-geo.com main page you can choose to view the board without frames....idiots.

JHendrix

I like frames because it provides easy, functional Navigation. I wanted to segment my site into area's as much as possible, which is why I'm using two frame sets. I don't like it when I have to scroll back up to click on a link for a section, I want everything to be accessable to me no matter where on the page I am reading. Just a personal way I like to do things, so I carried it over to my site.

I wanted the site's overal theme to be simple, functional, and super informative/useful. Which is kinda why I didn't make it extra flashy with colors and things.

Sonic: I'm viewing it right now at work on IE6 at 1024 resolution and it's going ok, I didn't check it at 800x600 because well I don't want to have to go and fix it.. :(

BTW, hopefully I can get my .com and a lot more webspace (I'm thinking 300Mb) so I can host my inserts and a bunch more.

Anyway I hope you guys can get some use out of it. I appreciate the feedback, good or bad. :D

Peace

why did you put a roms section on ther j hendrix? i thought we all hated them.

Actually he is a outspoken rom user who only uses them to try out games before he buys them. I guess its ok as long as he buys the games.

My site had frames to start with, but I hated not being able to link directly to a page unless it was out of the framest ( or at least I never figured out how to). I also had to change my resolution due to many complaints on missing images and I did not want my menu to scroll.

FWIW. I look forward to seeing more of your site J.

Looks good. Straight to the point and minimalistic. Gets the job done.

Journals (blogs) are always fun on people's sites when they actually have something to say.

Probably cause he's no hypocrite. Pretty much UNLIKE the shitload of people on this bbs who are bashing emulation all day long while having their HDs damn full of romz, warez & mp3z <img src="graemlins/blowtop.gif" border="0" alt="[Blow Top]" />

Hey...

I'm not an anti-frame zealot. ;) Just that Frames make things easier for the website developer but not necessarily easier for the navigator.

The main problem is that Frames aren't always the most obvious to link directly and/or bookmark. If you manage to bookmark/link the page directly, then you still have problems with accessing the rest of the site that is frame dependant.

In most studies relating to website useability scream very loudly against frames. :p

Here are some links:
<a href="http://www.jessett.com/web_sites/usability/frames.shtml" target="_blank">http://www.jessett.com/web_sites/usability/frames.shtml</a>

<a href="http://www.useit.com/alertbox/9612.html" target="_blank">http://www.useit.com/alertbox/9612.html</a>

A lot of these sites are old, but most of the principals stick. ;)

That said, I've built framed sites myself and I'm not going to demand you remove them or anything. You've done the work, it's your site, and it's very good. ;) I've sent a "link" to your supergun page to a friend of mine who's helping building mine. And... ;)

I didn't do that because wire colors between PSU's are like 95% standard. I can see someone w/ the other 5% blowing up thier MVS board and taking my ass to court. But like I said in the how-to, look for the +5V lead, hook that up to the +5V line on the JAMMA harness. I wouldn't drive more than two +5V inputs w/ just one +5V line off the PSU BTW. Probably don't have to follow that last part, but I did just to be safe.

Peace

I think it is a nice design for a website. <img src="graemlins/glee.gif" border="0" alt="[Glee]" />

I clicked on the "about me" link and nothing happened. We still don't know who you are? <img src="graemlins/spock.gif" border="0" alt="[Spock]" />

<hr></blockquote>

Frames are not all that bad, if you properly use them. In many older browsers before Netscape 4 and IE 5, things like frames never worked perfectly. Some browsers used to crash hard when dealing with multiple framed sites, which was one of the main reasons why people strayed away from using frames. Plus, people loved to "overframe" back then.. a page with 7 or 8 frames on it for every list, graphic or message would come about making everything look messy.

These days, frames are not that big of an issue, and linking to a web site with frames is not complicated as long as you develop a page that is basically a frameset that loads pages and nothing else. Or to make it easier, make an intro page where a person has to click on a link to enter, where the link will open up the frameset in a browser window that sets itself to dedicated width and length. That way, people link to the intro page and not the frame page. I did that when developing my web page a while back... it basically pops up a window that can't be resized, with all of the information stored inside of it (top and right side navigation, and a box for content). It still can be improved, though... didn't bother to use CSS, nor is the code 100% optimized for efficiency. :)

Beyond that, frames are fine. Great job on the web site, JHendrix!

Good site, JHendrix. I have no problem with the frames- in fact, they are rather well implemented.

Great site. I have also been thinking about getting a supergun or making one and getting rid of all my aes stuff. These home carts are just too damn expensive. At least now I have a lot more information than I had before.
