I made a webpage for a Pet Supply shop.
On my computer I have a .exe file called Felix21 (it's a black and white cat that roams around my computer, sits on top of prompts or chases a little fly and leaves shadowed paw prints on my screen for a second when it catches the fly and he also watches TV of cat food ads and he leaves through a little door and disappears only to appear at the side of the screen and smiles at me, as if 'Here I Am'...if I minimize a window he falls down and walks along my task bar or just sits their washing his paws. He is the cutest little computer companion I've seen..
Anywaysss, I would like to know How can I put him on the webpage I made for the Pet Supply store..it would be so appropriate.
Even though it is silly can anyone tell me how to do it..
How does one find the html for a .exe file?
Can a .exe file be converted to html?
Any advice or comments would be appreciated.
If anyone is familiar with Felix and Superfly you will see the connection. I've often pondered how easily this can be added to a web page. It would involve a series of stored "animation paths" incorporated with a few stored functions and would heavily use setTimeout() to execute both the animation "scenes" and the speed of their movements.
In the Windows version, as Felix moves across the screen, you can click him, pick him up by the scruff of the neck, and drop him onto desktop objects, such as open windows. Felix will then move into "walk mode" until he reaches the edge of the box, then "jump" down until he hits another walk object, return to walk mode, and proceed off the screen. You can switch between the "scruff," "walk," and "jump" animated .gif's by a combination of onMouseDown/onMouseUp and collisions between the object containing the animation and the coordinates of the user's mouse in the click events.
A more simple project, a few passes across the screen or a couple reactions to a click, even *I* could do this within a few hours.
However, one must consider the dollar value of "cute," and also whether or not this would contribute anything of value to your site visitors. "Stupid web tricks" (pardon the pun, sorry) hold a very small value if they don't contribute to the visitor's experience in a way beyond visual effect.
