    I'll use thumbnails for the sake of loading speed - click them to get the full versions. I may have to make a few posts to cover them all.


    This lot are pre-existing promotional desktop backgrounds, reworked (usually in a very easy fashion) to look nice at 800x480.

    This one is here because so many people referred to the Pandora as the "Panda", way back;


    [​IMG]


    These next two are just C64 BASIC screenshots, one with the cursor, and one without.

    The next two are alternate renditions of a traced-over texture rip from The Misadventures of Tron Bonne for the PlayStation - one has the original colours from the texture, the second has brighter colours.

    Next up is an appropriate Strong Bad desktop background, adapted for the Pandora's resolution.

    And these next three are variations on my entry when submissions were being taken for potential inclusion in the set of community-made desktop backgrounds that were present on the NAND until Hotfix 5. The one I submitted is the third one. It's called "Pandora Microcomputer", but it never made it in. :p

    Finally, this last desktop background was made after viewing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8asnz3E4n4o, which focussed on a range of food-bags with a humourous mascot. You won't understand this one if you haven't viewed the video, so I highly recommend that you view the video. :p


    [​IMG]


    And that's all of the ones I've rejigged or otherwise clobbered together. I do have a number of other ones, but they're almost all just images from companies that sell amusing/geeky t-shirts, which have been slightly reworked to fit the Pandora's resolution, so I don't know if anyone would want them. :p If anyone does, I'll make thumbnails and post them up.

    What about finding images with Google Images that are 800x480? Can we submit those?

    These are links only, but here are the 42 images that once resided in the "backdrops" directory in the firmware - the community backgrounds. I retrieved these from my previous Pandora, which was RMA'd before Hotfix 5 was finalised, and was thus running Hotfix 4.

    Yes, Dr. Ashen. If my memory serves me correctly, he mentions having the qualification in an older video or two.

    You poor, poor soul. I can only imagine that your avatar is a personification of the kinds of insanity it wrought. :p

    ^ You can put them wherever you want, but if you're unafraid of putting a couple of them on the NAND, putting a couple in your home directory is probably the best way to go (in my humble opinion - your mileage may vary). Not too many, since space is limited, but a small number with small file-sizes won't cause any problems.


    Using a photo as a desktop background is no different to using any other sort of image, and they're set in the same way - right-click the desktop, click "Desktop Settings", and you can set the background from there, navigating to wherever the picture is stored (this is another reason I find it easier to put these images on the NAND, so long as they're not giant - it's quicker to get to them this way).

    That, my friend, is pretty damn wicked. I applaud you! I vote this best official background ever and demand it's inclusion in hotfix6. :)


    Love the concept!
