    Can't you change the File Types (extensions) like in windows so that swf's are opened using Safari or IE or whatever mac uses as a browser rather than excel?

    Probably but never need to open them without, i'm not as akin to my mac as i am to windows!

    Good effort though, perhaps if the lines were moving as he ran?

    Lol, I think I've done as much as I can with the lines, was a little hard getting both the kite and both lines moving in sync, let alone the little guy doing the flips etc! lol

    only one problem with it,
    if ya fly ya kite that low in a pendulum, your gonna get some serious down wind drag and not the desired pendulum affect,

    excellent idea though!!!!!!

    Yeah, it is a bit low, but I thought I'd over exadurate the movement. I can always redo the kite's movement - but you can get the general idea from this.
    Thanks for the comment

    Cool idea, the stick man seems 2 jump at the wrong time though! shouldn't he be lifted into the air when the kite is turned left and not when he's redirecting?
