    Automatically delete everything containing the word 'color' or any color.
    Let's prove to the EU parliament that upload filters are a great solution :p

    Exactly. Everyone knows that the proper English spelling is colour.

    Meh - just let it continue on it's hopelessly derailed path and be buried by the next news post? We're 10 pages in. Anyone reading this far and expecting actual news doesn't know us very well.

    That's a good question actually. I expected the x200 to have a carbon-fibre mat like texture, but actually it looks kind of furry. A clear Pyra case with the carbon fibre lengths included might look like that too, I honestly don't know. I don't think FormAction are set up to do that, so we can't see any prototypes with that until the case moulds move to the new firm. But if it does look anything like that a translucent effect might be very interesting - I'd been kind of assuming that it was something we needed to cover up.

    42 (Loire) is the answer.
    Or... We can only have one color for shoulders and everything (most probably close-to-black dark grey, maybe a rubber substance ?) as it's not a huge problematic and maybe reduce costs enough for additional colors on the rest ?

    For the poll, I'd like things to be more like :
    What dark color would you like best ? (radio buttons)
    - Gunmetal
    - Dark Grey
    - Black

    What light color would you like best ? (same)
    - White
    - Cream
    - Light Grey

    If we have only one, which would like best ? (same)
    - Dark
    - Light
    - Color

    If we have only two, which would like best ? (checkbox)
    - Dark
    - Light
    - Color

    It's been a while since I last made a poll but I think it was on this revision of the forum software. I don't think you have all that much control over creating different types of buttons, but I think you can have multiple questions with different options (and you missed off C64/65 beige from your light questions).

    That's because I didn't consider beige as a really light color. More like medium, as would cartridge grey be. Thus cream for your beige box era.

    I would love a metallic blue:
    Or some dual color black with red
    redblue.JPG
    or Broken white, like the C64

    But most importantly:

    When I saw this render I liked it. However it's taken me a few days to realize what did it remind me.
    It's quite the colors of the venerable Oric Atmos. This render has more red area, but it is still similar.

    But really, I hope ED takes into account the cheapest option. I don't like clear because of light leakage.
    I fear two colors might be more expensive, and if so, it's not really worth it.

    @pyrat I would imagine this depends on how many combinations ED is going to order. the molds for separate parts can take different colored plastics at no additional costs. The plastic material isn't going to be more expensive because it has another color and the amount stays the same (theoretically of course). So buying the same color as a large volume will probably be cheaper then say 20 different colors making up the same volume, but I am sure if it's only 4 or 5 different ones, it's not going to impact production cost by a lot.

    I Personally wouldn’t prefer a multicoloured Pyra. Except for different coloured Nubs only (e.g. gray Pyra and black nubs)

    What they likely can do is have one colour in one mould, while the other colour is in the other mould, and then swap them, that way they'd get two full sets, one of each colour. Then they can just keep doing that.

    I have a question for @EvilDragon

    What do YOU like, and / like to see/try in regards of colour?


    Funny fact about this post:

    I almost wrote color, but remembering some posts of you grammar nerds made me reconsider. I read back a few posts above mine and noticed most use colour consequently so I put down colour instead.

    My standard US English dictionary says it's wrong now.

    I should have just gone with my gut feeling and put down COLOR like I initially wanted to do :cool:
