Draw Over: FAQ and comments

Publié le 16 Juillet 2006


Here is the article where J... answers your questions about Draw Over. Add your questions and comments in the comments of this article that will be updated regularly.

"It doesn't work ! I can't either draw or vote !"
When you click on GAME and VOTE, your browser needs to download the interface whose filesize is around 400 ko. This step can require a few seconds. If your browser is able to make it work, you should see a gray rectangle appear and a status bar progress. If nothing happens, you should probably update your JAVA plug-ins, which can be done here.

"When I click on SAVE in the game or on VOTE in the voting interface, nothing happens. Why ?"
If you look at the cursor while clicking on the buttons, you should see that your computer is waiting for something. Indeed, saving and voting make your computer discuss with the server of DrawOver, where the votes and images are saved. This discussion takes a few seconds and your computer waits for the reply of the server. Clicking once and waiting is enough. Clicking several times will make the delay longer...

"Some images do not appear in VIEW and in the TOP 10. Why ?"
The game and the voting interface have been programmed with Processing, which is not yet able to save to web. As a consequence, programmation of DrawOver required to customize discussion protocols to save the images. Unfortunately, the current version seems to induce differences depending on your OS or environment: the generated JPG images are sometimes RGB (they work) or CMYB (they don't appear in the browser). Gods of Processing are working on this subject.

"120 seconds is not enough ! I want more."
Indeed, 120 seconds seems to be a bit short. The time will be increased very soon.

"I want to draw over a photo ! Is it possible ?"
This feature will also be tested quite soon.

Ca y est, la nouvelle version de Draw Over est en ligne. Enfin, nouvelle... déjà ancienne car certains changement sont en préparation. Alors restez branchés.

Ne vous inquiétez pas: aucune image ne disparaitra (elles y sont toujours d'ailleurs). Mais certains travaux ne pouvaient pas être faits en laissant le site ouvert. Et malheureusement, certains travaux sont plus lourds que prévus: on essaiera de réouvrir très vite, mais on ne sait pas encore quand.

Oui Marcopol, ca marche avec Mac même s'il peut parfois y avoir des problèmes lors de l'enregistrement, mais globalement ca marche.
