True. Perhaps 300dpi for a digital viewers is not a good idea...

Since it cannot use external files, we could scrap the 300DPI idea.. Then again, we could of use external files, if we make each PNG into a sepparated .SWF that we can load externally. That way we retain transparency and external file loading for bigger modularity.
If we can't use the original files, I don't really see the point in doing this? May as well do it as your original one.

Using the SWF alternative could be OK then, I presume. I dont mind making 10 separate files for the engine to use . if I'm going to make this for you I miht as well do it all. As you said, codewheels are few.
Really not much point IMO. Unless you can think of a reason to do?

You mean like what Disposable Hero does when it asks for copyprotection? having all images in a line? This could be possible, but it means more work (We have to take apart each image, and put the numbers in the proper order, and... a mess)
No, I didn't mean that. Think of it this way: You have your MI2 codewheel in front of you (in tact). You want to make it look perfect - so you like up the top faces with the correct bottom faces and then lay down with the company logo's etc so they are readable without turning the wheel.

As I said - minor and very cosmetic

Quote:

It has two actually, at zero and 180 degrees of the center of the inner wheel, at its x axis. I can find a nasty workaround for it, or sit down for a while and think about how to do it properly
I don't mind.

I'll make proto with external SWF files loading.
Again, only if you know of a good reason for it! Downloading a 40Kb SWF from the CAPS site is not going to mean much if you have to hunt for the other SWF's - we would get more "hate mail" that way - not less
