Can't read all of my comics in chrome web app or html 5

  • Problem
  • Updated 4 years ago
  • Solved
Hi,

I've recently bought a number of comics. I've always read on my HTC Desire but wanted a bigger screen so I tried the Graphicly chrome app.
I now find out that most of the comics i want to read have this nasty habit:
I open the comic, go through a couple of pages, go to full screen and i get a full screen of background... but no comic.
I then restarted chrome, went back to the comic page and again... nothing.
So now i have angelus 1 to 3, Rising stars: Bright 2 and 3, soldier zero 4 simply not available.
And the problem remained, even after i uninstalled the graphicly chrome app and adobe air. So it's also in the web app.

This is quite annoying as it happens with new comics that i haven't read yet

Please fix this issue.
I'm using google chrome 11.0.696.77 on windows xp servicepack 3

Please excuse the delay in following up.
We most definitely are seeing this in our current website, we have this fixed in our new website that I linked above.
Did you have any luck at our beta site?
You said you are also having problems seeing comics in Adobe Air? Do you open them post-download and see them as blank?

Thanks

Hi Audrey,

just been to the beta website. checked angelus 1 til 3.
I now see the title page but the controls to leaf through the page disappear so I can't test it full screen or read it

Sorry audrey,

I tested it in internet explorer and not in chrome.
First glance it all seems to work but i'll do a more thorough test and get back to you

In Chrome i can read fine in the page view mode but with soldier zero issue 5 the frame by frame view gave me the 'broken image' link so I could only read in the page view

Oops still found an issue.

The panel by panel view mode works fine right up to the page before the final page.

I was reading wanted 1 when i noticed this.

When i started reading \wanted 2 after that, when i hit the view mode, the controls froze and only the Exit button works. Reopening the comic didn't help and I was reading this (chrome and comic were in full screen mode)

All righty! Thanks for your patience. Should be good to go for reading all issues or Wanted (and Darkness/Pitt #1 where we found the bug as well).
Thanks and please write in with any other defects or feedback or comic recommendations!
