Some people do not use Acrobat Reader at all and refuse to install it, like me.

I prefer the nice document viewer in my linux machine.

In general, it's a bad idea to have links that launch applications without them being labeled as such. Links are by default assumed to lead to pages, not print documents.

One thing I noticed was the image of the Portal Well used on the home page when the online tab is scrolled over. Its from the original release with placed holders from NOLOBEN in gateways. You might want to replace that with the ones from the current release.

Done. Including purple wizard hat and my red shirt. ;)

Chrome 2.0.172.39

Technical issue:
When I initially load the page, the scroll bar is replaced with some strange texture, that's clearly from somewhere else on the page. Hard to describe, so here's a piccy:

Refreshing the page clears the problem, but navigating to somewhere else and then back again brings the problem back.

Personal opinions:

* I personally find the intro video very annoying, as I'm sure others will do. Equally, I'm sure many people will enjoy it, so it shouldn't be removed. Rather, can't you have a little 'skip intro' button? Also, and 'audio off' button would be nice.

* Been mentioned before, but the images used all seem to be of a very low quality. Being from the UK, I've never encountered MQ before, but the first impression I get from this site is "well, that's a slightly tacky and not-very-professional company", yet I'm sure that little could be further from the truth. Good quality pictures needn't be large in size, and yet will seriously, seriously enhance the quality of the site.

* Again, been mentioned before, but using 'Live' as both 'L-eye-ve' and 'L-i-ve" is very confusing.

Hope this is at least a little helpful - really don't mean to be too negative...

I agree with the comments about the opening intro. A skip button would be neat. Also, I think it is odd that there are no links on the well itself. You have three images there, I think they should be links to the top three places you want visitors to go.

I couldn't get the top nav bar and the well all on my screen at the same time (1024x768). I can't see the text any smaller than that, and I'm probably your target grandfather demo for dragging kids to these places.

I'd like to see a more contemporary and exciting feel to the whole site, but I'm not really familiar with the genre of Medieval-style attractions, restaurants, etc. Maybe you've done it right for families who go to these places.

Do you feel the online game will drive business to the attractions, or vice-versa?

Generally, the site is workable. It seems cumbersome and generally old-fashioned to me (too much text, heavy images, too many choices, and I had to scroll every page...not good). Kids will run out of patience fast without something to hook them quickly. That said, it is all attractive and appropriate for what it is.

The online site pages will be a work-in-progress. Ask for suggestions from the users. What's the target age group for MQO, by the way?

Also, without Adobe Reader, what's your chosen way to view .pdf's?

I am very fond of Foxit Reader, it is tiny, fast and free.

Oh, good lord. If I tell Phil, our project leader, that now we have to also consider representing physical reconfigurations, it'll just ruin his whole vacation. I think I'll call him right now... :twisted:

<adding warranty department to call list>


Phil knows about it already, he just hasent gotten to see it in action. I call her Vera 2, if theres any firefly fans around these parts you should get the reference ;3.


sorry to bring up older stuff in the thread, but Phil HAS seen my version of the "wand-gun". Its made from the casing of a busted airsoft gun. I also have a compass rfid tag in the handle so i can just stick the end of the gun on rfid readers and use it as a compass as well. Rick even played around with it for a little bit at Pigeon Forge XD. Some other CK and RDS guys have seen it as well.

and then there is my wand I am planning on modding when i get the chance that will cast fire..... literally........ :twisted:

Now, whip up Lucius Malfoy's Wand Cane, and we'll be good to go. Dual wands would be way to cool, too... *halo*

Think the cane falls into your area Voldermort. Get to it ;3. You can actually dual wield wands, nothings stopping you from doing it, but the only benefit is casting more then one way at once.
