To test tours both on HTML5 and Flash, Flash player must be installed on your computer.
You can read it when download program.

Flash player installed on system.

Components of the browser being used?
Installed and used google chrome browser.
He built a flush and also the support of the same web-Sec and html5
Therefore, the question is still open
Maybe even a component or software should be placed?

It look like very strange. This message appears when you have no Flash Player on your system. We met with the situation when flash was installed on Internet Explorer, not on the whole system.
It is very interesting for us.
You can write me private message. I'll contact with you, and we shall look what happened on your computer.

Plugin or tool

Isn't this more of a KRpano tool subject instead of plugins?


Wednesday, April 13th 2016, 8:40pm

Tours Creator is GUI for krpano. I use it since January. On one side it is very easy in work and on the other it allows to create tour interface that satisfies all my customers.
I'm not strong in programming. But TourCreator allows me not to do this job. I'm simply adds functions and they are working. This make my work very fast.
But I have enough experience to add xml and js plugins, and I can say that you can do it very easy in these tours. Xml look like very familiar, if you have ever use krpano.

Isn't this more of a KRpano tool subject instead of plugins?
TourCreator is wysiwyg editor for krpano. So it is tool.
On the other hand it is the set of different plugins for krpano.
For example, drop-down menu editor is the xml plugin that insert in your xml the following code:

Source code

<layer name="mainmenu" type="container" width="100%" height="100%" zorder="-1" keep="true" visible="true" groupcount="4" orientmenu="h">    <layer name="menu1" html="About Hotel" style="uppermenustyle" width="120" onclick="opensubmenu();" countsubmenu="3" submenuwidth="150">      <layer name="menu1s1" html="Show info" style="uppersubmenustyle" onclick="infoboxHS(info1);" />      <layer name="menu1s2" html="Show on map" style="uppersubmenustyle" onclick="skin_showmap();" />      <layer name="menu1s3" html="Reception" style="uppersubmenustyle" onclick="loadscene(scene_100,null,merge,blend(1));" />    </layer>    <layer name="menu2" html="Rooms" style="uppermenustyle" width="120" onclick="opensubmenu();" countsubmenu="6" submenuwidth="150">      <layer name="menu2s1" html="Royal Suite" style="uppersubmenustyle" onclick="loadscene(scene_706p1,null,merge,blend(1));" />      <layer name="menu2s2" html="Presidentail Suite" style="uppersubmenustyle" onclick="loadscene(scene_606p2,null,merge,blend(1));" />      <layer name="menu2s3" html="Executive Suites 1" style="uppersubmenustyle" onclick="loadscene(scene_506p3,null,merge,blend(1));" />      <layer name="menu2s4" html="Executive Suites 2" style="uppersubmenustyle" onclick="loadscene(scene_406p3,null,merge,blend(1));" />      <layer name="menu2s5" html="Superior Rooms" style="uppersubmenustyle" onclick="loadscene(scene_414p1,null,merge,blend(1));" />      <layer name="menu2s6" html="Standard Rooms" style="uppersubmenustyle" onclick="loadscene(scene_420,null,merge,blend(1));" />    </layer>    <layer name="menu3" html="Restaurants" style="uppermenustyle" width="120" onclick="opensubmenu();" countsubmenu="4" submenuwidth="177">      <layer name="menu3s1" html="Emerald Restaurant" style="uppersubmenustyle" onclick="loadscene(scene_r01,null,merge,blend(1));" />      <layer name="menu3s2" html="Versailles Restaurant" style="uppersubmenustyle" onclick="loadscene(scene_r02,null,merge,blend(1));" />      <layer name="menu3s3" html="Gzhel Restaurant" style="uppersubmenustyle" onclick="loadscene(scene_r03,null,merge,blend(1));" />      <layer name="menu3s4" html="Lobby bar" style="uppersubmenustyle" onclick="loadscene(scene_r04,null,merge,blend(1));" />    </layer>    <layer name="menu4" html="Conference Rooms" style="uppermenustyle" width="154" onclick="opensubmenu();" countsubmenu="3" submenuwidth="180">      <layer name="menu4s1" html="Alexandrite Hall" style="uppersubmenustyle" onclick="loadscene(scene_p01,null,merge,blend(1));" />      <layer name="menu4s2" html="Amethyst Hall" style="uppersubmenustyle" onclick="loadscene(scene_p03,null,merge,blend(1));" />      <layer name="menu4s3" html="Diamond Hall " style="uppersubmenustyle" onclick="loadscene(scene_p04,null,merge,blend(1));" />    </layer>  </layer>

You see that you can edit open source in any xml editor, change menu texts, onclick actions, width, style, etc.

The hotspot editor place the following code:

Source code

    <hotspot name="hs1" url="hotspot/hs5.png" ath="-151.7023722160538" atv="27.04992267385369" linkedscene="scene_606p2" alpha="1" style="stylehs" />    <hotspot name="hs2" url="hotspot/hs5.png" ath="-85.49786743029449" atv="20.932645999635675" linkedscene="scene_606p1" alpha="1" style="stylehs" />

The same thing - simple to edit.

The image-map navigation editor produce the following:

Source code

<layer name="mapPlan" type="container" width="100%" height="100%" y="45" zorder="-1" keep="true" visible="false">    <plugin name="closeMapPlan" url="img/krest.png" align="topright" x="0" y="0" onclick="set(plugin[mapPlan].visible,false);" />    <plugin name="mapplanactivespot" url="img/mappointactive.png" align="center" scale.desktop="0.5""1.0" scale.tablet="0.75" zorder="3" edge="center" visible="false" />    <layer name="map01" url="image/plan1.png" align="center" x="0" y="0" scalechildren="true" visible="false">      <layer name="map01s1" style="mapspotstyle" x="237" y="89" showscene="scene_706p1" />      <layer name="map01s2" style="mapspotstyle" x="374" y="177" showscene="scene_706p3" />      <layer name="map01s3" style="mapspotstyle" x="235" y="211" showscene="scene_706p2" />      <layer name="map01s4" style="mapspotstyle" x="95" y="150" showscene="scene_706p4" />      <layer name="map01s5" style="mapspotstyle" x="106" y="221" showscene="scene_706p5" />    </layer>      </layer>  <style name="mapspotstyle" url="img/mappoint.png" align="topleft" scale.desktop="0.5""1.0" scale.tablet="0.75" zorder="2" edge="center" onhover="if(skin_settings.tooltips_mapspots==true,showtext(get(scene[get(showscene)].title)););" onclick="loadscene(get(layer[get(name)].showscene),null,merge,blend(0.5));" />

The close part of these plugins are placed in 3 files (for security reasons): useeds.xml, vtourskin.xml and classiceds.js This is usual practice for all krpano plugins.

We also use and install in tour different krpano plugins. For example, textfield, soundinterface, videoplayer, googlemaps (for those who have license) and so on.
And of course, you can use any plugin from the krpano set (free or commercial) and write your own. Install it by usual way.
