Why don't you just get a free site from like Fortune City, and host it yourself?  I'm sure you won't exceed bandwidth restrictions with only one 5kb image...

woah! i didnt think anyone would reply so rapidly!

well. ive tried hosting images there, but a lot of the free sites dont let you link off images or something like that. so you can't see the picture.

i just thought it would be easier if someone else hosted it at their site.

http://www.photobucket.com... Very nice image hosting.

But it sounds like you're looking for hosting, which a flash application won't comply with. I'd reccomend tripod. It works as a temporary free hosting thing..

Lycos let you hotlink images as long as you use the space for a site. I mean, you create a dummy site and you can hotlink all the images you want.

Good plan, I agree with him.  Make a site about monkeys or something, you know, just slop it together.... and then host your images there.

EDIT:  I tried "tripod", which is Lycos' free thingy, but the same problem persists: no off-site linking to images, so...  :evil:

I've said this before and I'll say it again
for geocities you can trick them to hotlink imaging.

With the Geocities FTP thing rename the image from *.gif or whatever to *.txt

geocities allows you to hotlink txt files to just trick it =D

The problem is, SWF movies are not, and will never be, considered as "images". Besides, if you want to use the game as your sig, then some admin will need to install the phpBB add-on to allow Flash movies (in fact, is SO easy to modify the code to allow movies, but... that means "work" anyways ;)) for you to be able to show the SWF directly here, but then that will raise *another* obvious problem. See, there was quite a lot of controversy for mere avatars and banners... and you expect to watch Flash movies here?

Think about it.

You screwed up the bbcode, so the link won't work.  The real link is: http://www.qbtk.com/shootthelemon.html

It should explode into a shower of red blood.

2nd one- that didnt make much sense...

Each click should launch a bullet with three knives taped to it.

Have a background wall, then when you shoot but miss, add bullet holes in the wall.

Also fix your sig.
