Re: rusnakcreative's Macro-enabled PowerPoint Gameshow Games!

Ha, figured you'd mention the large file size. I am glad that you have mentioned ways to reduce the file size without jeopardizing quality. I am impressed at the amount of time you spent to time load times. I will use your advice to reduce the file size best I can in the near future.

You mentioned there's activeX control(s) in the game that are preventing it from actually being Mac-friendly. Do you know what may be causing it? Would it be the question import feature by any chance?

I'll look into the use of straw poll sites and see if I can embed the results. This would be tricky to accomplish, and to also keep the Mac-friendly attribute that I am now aiming for my games.

I am very thankful that you have given me the reviews you already have, which have given me the insight I've needed to perfect my games even further. Thank you Tim.

The edit question values use ActiveX controls. Since PowerPoint for Mac can't read ActiveX values, the game can't continue past the choose game menu.

Question import won't work on Macs as far as I know. You may want to hide question import features for Mac users with an if Mac statement.

Welcome to the forum tundeaj and thank you for your feedback. Rusnakcreative is not always able to regularly log in to the forum at the moment but I'm sure he will be grateful and moved by your comments.

I hope you will continue to contribute to the forum, and if you have any PowerPoint creations you have made yourself, we would love to see them.

Thanks again.

Thank you for joining us, tundeaj! It has brightened my day to hear that my works have been inspiring for you. I would love to  see what works you have come up with or have in the works.

As John already pointed out I’m not frequenting here as often as I’d like to, real life takes precedence. My absence shouldn’t be a stopper to this community or creativity. This forum may be slow and inactive, but is still here! Hoping to see some creativity from you and other silent creators out there!
