norama module for Joomla + PTViewer issues
- Hi, this is my first post on this group, so would like to introduce
myself before asking questions.
I live in Brazil and I have a Joomla extension site devoted to VR
technologies. I'm not a professional programmer, but since I have
developed a few tools for my Joomla sites I decided to share them with
community, so I've created JoomVR Project web site
I also have interest on 3D game development and despite the fact that my
real profession is photography, I use panoramas mostly to promote game
In my site you will find a Panorama module
w&id=13&Itemid=41> that uses PTViewer from Fulvio Senore to render the
panoramas. Unfortunately I'm experiencing some problems with the
PTViewer that I don't know if are due to my programming, PTViewer or
Java limitations. I have configured the module to display an alternative
navigation bar and a compass using shotspots and transparent image
overlays. The problem is that the images do not load all the time.
Sometimes a few buttons are missing, sometimes all buttons are missiing
and sometimes everything is loaded properly. I have tried to replace the
PNG buttons with GIF's but the result was even worse. The GIF's are only
partially rendered. Since I want to have transparency, I decide to use
the PNG's. Almost nobody complained yet, but one user reported that the
buttons doesn't load at all on his site and I tried everything but
couldn't pintpoint the problem. The panoramas are rendered well, the
problem is with the shotspots.
You can see an example of my module here
w&id=13&Itemid=41> . Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance
