Currently we have a lot of different Wrapper types here, it's getting a little hard to differ between them.
I'm talking about these things:
And we'll be adding a few more, seeing as Drakulix' CiderX is now coming along nicely, as we as syao's ScummVM Wrapper.
Status of Ports and their Icons
To make things a little more easier for ourselves and others, we'll regroup the Wrapper types a bit.
Also most of these will not really fit anymore when we regroup them.
The Wrapper types that will be regrouped together (with one Icon) are:
CXZ and CXS
Wineskin, Wineskin Self Contained (WineskinSC) and Wine
Cider and the new CiderX
Cider and CiderX will be a light Blue icon. ('official' color of Drakulix' CiderX Project)
CXZ and CXS will be a Orange icon. (CXZ's original origin, CrossOver, has Orange colors)
Wineskin and Wine will get a Red icon. (Doh123's Wineskin Project mainly uses red )
DOSBox will get Black (Black), ScummVM a Green color, and Amiga a Yellow color. The color for the old and now defunct CX Wrapper is up to you.
I made a few example Icons a while back, they look like this:
The 3 Main Wrapper Types:
CXZ / CXS
Wineskin / Wine
CiderX / Cider
The other Wrapper Types:
So if you want to participate in our little Contest for our new Status Icons, submit your Entry in this Topic, and we'll make a Poll afterwards to let the Users decide what we should use.
The Entry for the Status Icons should have these properties:
- PNG Format
- 40 x 40 pixels
- a dropshadow
- remember the color codes: CiderX/Cider - Blue, CXZ/CXS - Orange, Wineskin/Wine - Red and so on.
- The differences between them should be clearly viewable, also go easy on the gamma on the colors because lighter colors are better on our current dark Forum theme.
- The Icons may be round to match the other Forum Topic Icons, but can also be pictograms (small symbols in the Icon)
- you may use elements of the previous Icons but it can not be a full representation of previously used Icons. (due to the grouping together part)
Now to the good Part, the Prize:
DankoB is sponsoring the Prize of this little Contest, the Winner will get a copy of Left 4 Dead 2 from Steam. (native mac Game)
Message from DankoB:
We're talking L4D2 here, so no mediocre icons are gonna win this contest. Incorporate the site's choice of colours... This is going to be a site wide implementation so get creative (this could be a good project for for someone's portfolio ;) )
Contest Entires can be added until the 10. November.
