Hey all,
finally figured out how to get sIFR working on the web. But now i have run into the problem of how to use a different type of font.
I have tired exporting a new font by opening up the sifr.fla file, typing the same text the 2 supplied fonts came with then exporting as a swf.

but it doesnt work. just wondering if any has succesfully used a non supplied font for sIFR.

wanna see what it looks like?
sIFR turned on:
sIFR turned off:

pls help us out .. wink wink M.C **

1. Open the Fla File
2, Double click on the movie area
3. Use the font dropdown in the properties box to select another font.
4. save as swf.

You should *not* type anything into the fla file :)
Be sure to read all the instructions given in the Sifr download package, there'a alot of customization that needs to be done, and this technique is not easy to do.
