Only the photophile DaveC would notice this...
I like the "Krystal" skin, or whatever - in my opinion, that grey header is the ugliest thing I have ever seen.
I'm glad you clarified just who's opinion that was ... and didn't your mother tell you "if you don't have anything nice to say, then STFU" ? <_<
... some might say the same for your avatar, (or mine for that matter), but it has no place here. <_<
I noticed that myself a while ago and I think it was Squidge who told me what it was that was doing it but now i've forgotten
Not wanting to sound like too much of a pedant here but in *my* opinion, this is a little uglier:
lol I actually adblocked that it was terrible
also got the link back up on the archive so you can dl it again now.
There was hardly a day went by that my mum didn't tell me to STFU (though she filled in all the missing letters)*
Lou, your avatar is the ugliest thing I have ever seen and needs to be changed *now*
*May not actually represent the truth.
Well I like the gray block...
Its a shame in the setting screen GPH made the the words/text as text put on the screen and not separate graphics files, that screen would look nice with an internet type world by the ip adress etc and some pimping...
I really want to download this skins but it appears that the link has been down for quite a while. anyone have a working link for this skin?
The File archive link right at the top of the thread seems to still be working, give that another go.
Perhaps try http://www.gp2x.de/cgi-bin/cfiles.cgi and go though the "gp2x Skins" section.
A really nice skin, I use it too, it is so much better than the default yellowish ugliness...
Now we need to adapt the skin to Ryos new menu. It is so much better than the default bad design ugliness.
when you goto download the link it gives you comes up with a 404 error. So it's still in the archive but the link when you start the download is broken. It's strange though cause I thought gp2x.de hosted the files themselfs.
Ah, just tried it. I see what you mean.
You can have an entry on the site without it being hosted there, just pointing to another location.
Anyone have a copy of the ZIP file floating about?
Paradox, have you got a copy?
i dont actually, and i dont have it on my nand because i started using the Candy skin instead, so hopefully someone can upload it if they have it.
im using gmenu2x now anyway, so i dont even see the base skin hehe
I just uploaded it.. hopefully it won't take long to update the archive. (I'm Atari on there)
I've just copied the skin off my gp2x and uploaded it to http://jc.sqchat.org/filesncrap/Aurora.zip. You may need to tidy it up a bit. Would it be possible for someone to actually upload it onto the archive?
I guess it's the 6 bits per channels that you are talking about, which is a restriction that applies everywhere, although probably just noticeable in things such as menus (beeing still images, often with smooth gradients (the true enemy of limited color depth))
I made some examples of dithering images, but it never really got any popular. Only thing i've seen is that gmenu2x is using it now.
I take it that the background is looking something like this?
