Does anyone else have this trouble?

Post by Stoker Bramwell »

In both the original version and this parody, I've always had trouble reading the text of the devildragon. Anyone else?

No. It does leave me to wondering why you are having difficulty. Is it a focus issue; do the words seem blurry? Is it a color-blindness issue; can you not make out the red letters against the black background? Is it a language difficulty or dyslexia interfering with your understanding of what your eyes are seeing? Or is this something hardware related instead of wetware problems? You need to elaborate a little more for those of us not experiencing the problem (which is the majority by my guess due to the lack of complaints until yours today).

No, Stoker pal, you're not alone. I always had a hard time with the old one myself, and I tried to make it a bit more readable with this one, but I don't think I succeeded. It may well be the resolution of our monitors at the moment. Sorry bout that. : )

Okay, okay... So I wasn't a whiz with computer graphics back then. And I'm STILL not...

Sorry. We'll have to add that to the list of things to improve in the future...

Why, are you planning on doing this a lot in the future?

No, just noting that that comic is hard to read.

So is War and Peace but they wouldn't let me change it. Something about it being a "classic" or some nonsense.

No worries, it has already been condenced to a decent length and I can say that Iread it several times now. ^.^

War and Peace
By Leo Tolstoy
Ultra-Condensed by Kris Samaras
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Leo Tolstoy
History controls everything we do, so there is no point in observing individual actions.
Let's examine the individual actions of over 500 characters at great length.

The Two Towers
By J. R. R. Tolkien
Ultra-Condensed by David J. Parker and Samuel Stoddard

(Gandalf frees THEODEN and overthrows SARUMAN. A bunch of IRRELEVANT stuff happens. Then the PLOT starts up again.)

Guess I was a little vague. :P I meant that the text was a little blurry. No problems with today's though. :D

Actually, Stoker, I thought that was exactly what you meant the first time around... *shrugs*
