horrid platform icons

category: general [glöplog]
keops: ok, then they are extraneous pixels :)
p01: nah, people who know gravis from the GUS era don't know and don't care either about this new gravis logo.

ok so here's my idea:
msdos BB Image vs msdos/gus BB Image

i know it's crappy, 10x10 pixels is not my genre...

blala: actually you variant of the msdos icon serves well its purpose. And the users will get used to it anyway.

Yeah, this one is good, even the colour is good. Like it. Seems like we have a consensus. \o/
with transparency, for ps, before he requests it ;)

are you sure the GUS is well plugged and initialized in your config.sys and autoexec.bat ?

java logo is supposed to have a white background

nope. it's not. java logo is supposed to be a cup of hot coffee in front of any background. If you look inside JavaCup.ico in the official j2se sdk you'll find 9 different java logos in various forms/sizes/colors with most of the time black backgrounds. which are transparent tho, so the applet viewer is going to show the icon on a blue background (as long as that is the color of your windows' title bars). the notorious white logos found on java.sun.com are just because of the boring white sun.com corporate webdesign.

in short words: the java logo with black background simply looks better inside the given border design. please go back to that :)

mizc: a company usually tries to have its website design coherent with its official logo.

Again: http://java.sun.com/logos/

Last try BB Image

I have had enough with these icons. If someone wants to give it a try, go ahead!
p01, wanna try a new java icon? :)

hmm funny, the first link you posted shows the cup on a grey background right on top of the site, the second shows it on a dark merchandise t-shirt.

and again: the current white java logo on pouet is just butt-ugly. but I guess it's hopeless now anyway.

1. did you scroll down to see the official logos on that page at least?
2. why don't you try to draw one? :)

mizc: as you can see by this 250+ message thread the admin(s) of Pouet welcomes the participation of the user. Therefore if you don't like an icon, feel free to make a new one and propose it.

keops: Am I allowed to have a break to eat ? please ... :p

keops + ps : you forgot the slap after the "BITCH!!"

just for to keep track, here comes back the Java icon I did yesterday ( or the day before ) : BB Image
