    you make it seem like UK English is better than American English, but they're both English. both are phonetically challenged.

    I think we can all agree that Scottish English is the best.

    According to that logic (which won't get challanged by me) English is mistakes in a predecessor language.

    Scottish accents are by far my favourite English accents. They can even pronounce -ch right. :)

    Dangit, it was supposed to be just one stupid joke and now we have derailed again. Sorry :(

    We have a serious derailing problem in this community and I know that I contribute my fair share.

    @Xcl4m4t10n What does that gesture mean?
    What about making us buy another color set, and then mix and match ourselves? (Thus, get your default dark-red Pyra then order an extra case in black and dis-re-assemble your unit yourself?).
    With the extra money, maybe an extra color can be produced in small quantities.
    Or chip in together to get another colour.

    It means you've watched too much athletics over the past 5 years or so.

    Yes. In fact, by that logic, every modern language is made up of mistakes from a predecessor language.

    Also, if the original spelling and pronunciation are the only valid ones, then English people have to change the things they've altered back to the original as well, like aluminum (original and American variation) rather than aluminium (altered by a committee of newspaper editors in the UK).

    Edit: I should add that many so called "American English" variations actually originated in England, including "color" rather than "colour." The difference came about by which variation was eventually published as the "official" spelling in a popular dictionary in each country. Both variations were used in both countries.

    ROFLF.

    Here's one for making me laugh:
    attempt1.gif

    Procedure *(requires imagemagick):
    Code:
    # Get the original animated gif
    cp ../isengard2.gif .
    
    # export it to lots of images
    convert isengard2.gif isengard.png
    
    # Remove the isengard text
    mogrify -crop 500x176+0+0 isengard-*.png
    
    # Remove old images, if there
    for i in `seq 0 13`;do rm Darmstadt-${i}.png; done
    
    # Add the new text
    for i in `seq 0 13`;do convert isengard-${i}.png -gravity South -fill yellow -pointsize 20 -annotate +0+24  "They're taking the Pyra's to Darmstadt" Darmstadt-${i}.png;done
    
    # rename for sorted generation
    for i in `seq 0 9`;do mv Darmstadt-${i}.png Darmstadt-0${i}.png;done
    
    # back to animated gif
    convert `ls Darmstadt-*.png|sort` go.gif
    
    # show it
    gwenview go.gif
    
    got bored removing the O from hObbits, and the offset was not always zero in the original...

    Also, look around this thread here, probably on this page or the ones around:
    https://pyra-handheld.com/boards/threads/pyra-blender-file.76494/page-10

    You will find the ZIP attachment in one of my posts with the PSD files to change color/material out of my renders. The instructions is there too to use GIMP, it is very easy.
    These are the perspective you can use/change.

    Nice, I made a quick light blue with mint controls using that
    PYRA_FRONT_mint-blue.png

    Can you provide more colour layers so the colours of the base upper and lid inner can also be changed (and maybe someone wants a different top and bottom)
