Custom a380 Backgrounds!
« on: January 29, 2012, 07:53:54 am »
Hey guys, as requested by Alien Grey I have created a custom wallpaper for the a380.
Tell me if you like it and if the horizontal lines line up with the icons in the dingoo menu; I might have to adjust the horizontal lines a bit.

Note: I have included three colors for the background but if you wish to have it in another color don't be afraid to ask

@zipaway

I like it.

I think it's better to use the same colors as the default backgrounds and the logo should be a little smaller so it fits between the lines and use white for the text (not all capital letters) with black or colored borders. Remove the top black bar.

Also change the color of the list_select.png to fit with all your backgrounds.

I also included the icons. Maybe these can be changed by small Dingoonity logos.

Alright I did what you asked and so here is how it looks, although i didn't think lowercase letters looked good for some reason so i thought id put both up to compare. I won't be making different colors until im sure it is perfect.
I also moved the vertical panel to the right a bit to fit evenly between the icons.

Could you submit another picture of the background with icons in front Alien?

It isn't possible to post a picture. The battery is flat.  ???


But you're close. Drop the horizontal lines 3 pixels and move the vertical lines 3 pixels to the left. The color is better. Maybe a little to dark. I think it's going to look better with the logo as a square and a little more space between the letters.

The list_select.png is the same for every background so maybe this one should be build with transparent.

You want me to make list_select.png transparent? That's a good idea.

Yes,  transparent with shadow.

OK here you go.
I couldn't find a way to put a square dingoonity logo without making it look weird.
But I shifted the horizontal and vertical lines like you said and I spaced out the letters a little.

In the attachment is the two icons and the list_select.png

That looks better. When I've got the time I'm going to make a firmware image with the new background and icons to share with you so you can see for yourself how it looks. It takes some time to have a firmware image ready to share so it probably won't be before next weekend.

Nice alienware backgrounds. Lol considering your name is alien it is a perfect match  :P.
Just out of curiosity, do you own an alienware computer?

Well anyways as I said I have exams this week so I don't have much free time but afterwards I am planing on making a theme complete with new icons.

No, I don't own an Alien Ware computer. I've build my own computer.






When I've got the time I'm going to make some more themes and try to make my own backgrounds.

ASUS Rampage Formula X48 with an Intel [email protected] and 2 X 2GB G.SKILL F2-9600CL5D-4GBPI memory. An OCZ Vertex 3 120GB and a Western Digital Caviar 2TB Black Edition. An old DirectX 9 graphics card that should have been replaced a long time ago but they never released the graphics card that I want with a full cover waterblock. ???
