Awesome work man! :v::clap:


#3

Clean and not too much stuff going on. Well done! :+1:


#4

cooool thanks for upload


#5

The design of this is so elegant, love it! Any chance you’d be able to add in audio controls? Something minimal with just a pause and volume control for example would make this even better.


#6

The screen gets frozen on this

Any idea why? i don’t hear the music i chose in the background… anything to do with it?


#7

Make sure the video is not copyrighted, and check the dev console in chrome for the HTML to see if there are any errors, remember to add anything, you have to add it in the __resource.lua too


#8

I appreciate the feedback, but at the time of finishing this loadscreen, I realized that it look very similar to
@Syntasu 's synn-loadscreen and adding that would give no originality from his and mine, maybe in the next update I’ll try to make something like that.


#9

Yep i changed the songs and it works perfectly! i love that loading screen but… (there will always be a but.) the music is too loud. anyway to change that? i looked around the files couldn’t find an option.


#10

As of now, there is no way to change the song. I’m working on adding a audio controller (in the config) though.


#11

Ah yeah I see what you mean. But to be honest, I think the difference in design and obviously depending on the design of the UI, it would be different enough from Synns. I know myself and many others have also had issues with Synn’s regarding the black overlay which is sort of characteristic of his. In yours it is configurable so again another difference between them :smiley:


#12

Essentially everything is configurable. But most of them didn’t even bother to look at the css :slight_smile:


#13

I did actually look into the css @Syntasu , but knowing basically nothing about how to use and write it, all I could do was try to edit the box-shadow value in the body section which did absolutely nothing :frowning:


#14

New Version


Added Music Volume Config

Check in new version on github (config.js)


#15

You need to ADD DIRECTIONS to the post, very bad instruction, as a newbie this is very hard for me to do? :_ NOT HAPPY.image


#16


#17

Those directions are very poorly written whoever wrote those directions were very badd of writing them there’s much more to it than just adding it in to the server CFG is there any way you can help me out as you have a discord I would appreciate it I’m new to fivem servers?


#18

I mean, if you can’t follow those instructions maybe you shouldn’t run a server
¯_(ツ)_/¯ but my discord: Zua#9581


#19

First of all you way out of line for saying that and im sure you were like that at one point, this isnt easy do instead of judging my intelligence why cant you be useful instead of backtalking SMH. The directions on the notepad are very poorly written my niece who is 7 years old can write better then that, its on notepad not word its hard to understand theres more to it then adding it to the servercfg, there should have been more directions then that.

ok bud
