1st 'Beta' release of the MachBlue Screenset
« on: May 02, 2006, 06:31:22 PM »
Art,

Thanks for the words of encouragement. We really didn't expect to see a mass of response but maybe the odd one !

But... The fact that your giving it a try dulls the pain ;)

We mentioned earlier that the colour scheme is undecided. The silver scheme was easier to work with in Screen4 so that was posted first.

Beano has shifted his photo shop layers and curves and a bit of jiggery to make the next release. Simply titled MachBlue.

I had a peak over at the dark side (Yahoo forum) and noticed your post on the screen release and the comments on the background.

Hopefully this may be more suitable for some people. I actually prefer this one myself.

It's available for download at the same place.

Again any comments appreciated.

I must warn you all now that as much as I tried I couldn't fight off Beano's Mach Pink release so watch this space ........

Cheers

Francis,

Thanks for the comments. Please shout up if you find errors etc.

There is always a risk when doing things as a team that someone gets more credit than another. I'm the one who had spare time on my hands doing the screen designs and ended up doing the forum posts.

Mr Bean really was the workhorse behind the screens......

Geez.  I help you out and you call me a horse?

No, really.  It was 50 50 shared work, just on different areas.

Hi guys , first of all GREAT screens!!!  I can't say that enough!!  THANKS mach blue s now my default screen.

I have done graphic design and i know what a pain it can be.

If i were to beg for one change it would be a different color for the dro's, the black on blue looks great but it is a little hard to read at a glance.
Yellow,white,light blue,Green something that sticks out a little more.

Now all you have to do is get together with Brian and the other wizard people and homogenize the gui for everything ;) "grin"

Chad,

Thanks for the positive feedback. Well if it's your default screen we really cannot ask for more !

To be honest I totally agree with your comments on the DRO colours. We will probably include two .set files in future. One for light DRO's and one for dark. I noticed the difference when I tried the files on LCD panels and normal CR monitors.

The attached file is a quick fix. Can you advise if this is acceptable ?

Just copy the .set file into your root mach3 folder and select it with mach3.

The thought of tackling the wizards makes me feel weak :) Brians the Guru.......

Cheers

Shaun,( Smack), you should have told him he can tweak the DRO coulors himself using the screen4.  (5 Minute job)
