I've been working on a virtual tour of a rugby stadium and have a few questions.
Here's a link to the tour (work in progress) http://www.peterstephens.co.uk/virtual_ ... -tour.html
I'm trying to get simple black rectangle to come out of the side of the logo for the dropdown menu to sit on, but can't get it to look the same on both desktop and my tablet (in this case an iPad).
Any idea how I can solve this issue?
If so I don't think there's any simple way to resolve the issue...unless you are willing to offer only an HTML5 version of the tour which isn't really viable at present because IE10 and earlier can't handle that properly.
Or you offer two separate versions of the tour and direct - via a custom script or whatever - the viewer to the correct version.
Or you just make you header large enough to accommodate the larger combobox displayed on the iPad and accept that it will be 'too big' on Flash-enabled platforms.
Regarding the dropdown menu, my original plan was to have two of them. One for the stadium tour and the other for the conference centre tour. I couldn't work out how to do it, is it possible? Ideally I wanted something a little more customised than the standard dropdown menu, expect I will have to go into the code to do that? Something like the menu in this tour I produced http://www.peterstephens.co.uk/virtual_ ... l-tour.php
Multiple drop downs (comboboxes) are not AFAIK supported by PT/PTP 2.x vua the GUI. You may be able to hand code them. Not sure whether one can customise the appearance of comboboxes (driop downs) by hand coding, but not via the GUI as you will have discovered.
You might instead look at the Panorama menu plugin which using the Group feature can to some extent emulate what you have created with Pano2VR in the example tour you cited.
I don't appear to have a full screen button on the iPad version, how do I get this to show?
Kolor has removed the fullscreens button from control bars on mobile platforms because the function is unreliable at present on some mobile platforms.
The issue regarding getting it back has been addressed elsewhere in the forum - you may be able to find it via the (rather pathetic) forum search facility.
Apart from that, has anyone any ideas how to improve on what I have produced here with Panotour?
Do you really need 3 ,or is it 4, alternative means of navigating the tour - hotspots, a dropdown combox, a thumbnail stack, and a floorplan?
But then perhaps all that UI 'clutter' helps to disguise/offset the fact that there's nothing very interesting about a provincial rugby stadium, or any other sports stadium, when devoid of people?
I haven't produced a large project with this software before as I usually use Pano2VR which I find easy to customize, wanted to give this a go.
I have to ask why you are experimenting with PTP 2.x when you are obviously very competent and comfortable with Pano2VR?
