    Darren, now you need to put the D&H train on your website(s) and make them run across the screen with the Marquee code. Take a look at some of the pages on my site, Vollrath's for sure, and read the source code. It's easy. :D

    Looks like your method only works on IE and not with Netscape. I've look at others that work on Netscape and not IE.

    What a pain :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    I guess now I need to find some code to detect which Browser you are using and use the method that works for that browser which from what I can see won't look / function the same way. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Gawl-lee, it works! Got this Tulsa-Sapulpa Union SW7 to move across the screen!: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    (gif courtesy of Frograil Gifs - it also has a tutorial on how to use them, and get 'em to move).

    Ain't that fun and easy? It enhances some pages as well. I guess there are a lot more gifs available now. I did mine a couple of years ago. ;)

    I was going to snag the Frisco one but Copyright considerations: You are authorized to download and use these images on your personal website -- indeed, you're encouraged to do so. However, you are not authorized to download and use these images on any website or other medium that has any commercial content. For example, if you have "Joe's Railfan Pages" without any advertisements, that's fine. But when you place your first banner ad or other commercial content on your pages, you are no longer authorized to use these gifs without written permission from the originator of the gif. So, I guess that kind of leaves me out!

    I read that notice, so since I have nothing other than links to other websites, I'm OK.

    Now, however, I do have a question- by trying these gifs out in an email, even using the marquee feature, and even saying where I got 'em from, would I be going against the stateement on copyrights you posted (from the same site)? Just wondering.

    PS- I've got to add another page to my website, so I'll try out the marquee feature there (will feature a full-blown Frisco freight, with back-to-back SD45).

    Darren- I got mine to run in IE, so if you're using Netscape, I don't know what to tell ya.
    If you can change browsers to either IE or Firefox, you may get the results you're looking for (unless someone out there has got 'em running while using Netscape).

    Looks like my old system is messing with me then.

    If I use the code below in my FrontPage 2000 editor {Swapping "[]" for "<>" for displaying code rather than the results}
    It alters it to the below so it won't work right within my site
    If I use the Java Script method it locks up my IE5 and/or won't display anything; but works in my Netscape 4.5. Problem is most people use IE today so a bit lost. Also the Java Script doesn't like my Microsoft Borders so I have some conflict I don't yet understand either.

    Seem strange how I see this stuff works but FrontPage 2000 (Ver 4.0.2) won't let me put it into my site.

    Back to the basics again tonight and see if I can figure this issue out. :mad: :mad: :mad:

    IE is very much the #1 browser that I see; but, it's a tie for #2 between AOL & Netscape at about 5% each.

    I very much like to Jave Script method; but, it doesn't work with IE5 but I don't know if it works with IE6. With the Java Script method I can control Speed, Direction, and many other features which makes the MARQUEE method look extremely basic. If you know of someone that can get the Java Script to work with IE5 with FrontPage 2000 Borders I would like to tak in detail.

    Then you do what 90% of the market desires. If 90% use IE, your not really losing that much with the other 10%.

    If they cant come to what the standard is, thats their loss.

    As long as you put on your page, 'BEST VIEWED WITH IE5 or greater' there should be no issues.

    Done some testing during the night and the Java Script method might work with IE6 but I don't have access to that version where I build my at. Looks like there is some hope.

    I know what your saying about Netscape but nearly 100% of my family uses Netscape so there is a reason for my supporting it more than most; otherwise, I won't either.

    Looks like I do need to ask Santa for a new XP this round though since I'm currently still on a 95 box; hence my Netscape 4.5 / IE5 combination with FronPage 2000 that seem to be more the root of my issues.

    But you DID get that D&H U-boat to move! Nice job!

    I've tried writing another webpage using Microsoft Word, with no success- it gives me the same code arrangement (<marquee></marquee>, and all the gifs...... that he got. If I can solve this, I'll add some scrolling Frisco freights.

    I built my webpages using Geocities' PageBuilder. Wonder if I can get gifs to scroll there?

    But the real trick is to get them to go the other way (left to right) with some on the same track at different speeds and be able to stop and reverse direction on a per train basis.

    If you have IE6 with HIGH SPEED access try looking at my recent test page. There are a few bugs and even at HIGH SPEED it will take a bit to load becuase I have a ton of stuff going on at the same time with about 100 GIF files in action.

    I'm using the method listed on Brian's site and trying to get this working all correctly before adding animation to other pages.
