horrid platform icons

category: general [glöplog]
The new icons (with that background) and the new layout (right-aligned platform icons) look much better than the first draft. It's OK for me now!

skrebbel, knox: why are those better?

only ones that need rework are the mastersystem, megadrive and maybe the amigas to shwo diference between ecs, aga and ppc..

rest seems all done as you can see

thank you everyone for the help! ^^

p01: java logo is supposed to have a white background

ps, cause that's what the msx logo looks like. white on a black rectangle, with a blue background.

i think java with the reatrded little man would look better then with a cup of stfu...

freeze: i've never seen that first logo you refer to, only the red/white logo.
ps: I think Tux' head is more recognizable than his whole body at such a small size. And the current Thomson icon is a bit messy, imho (not that mine's much better, though). Now, it's just a matter of taste. You decide... :)

the whole pinguin is much more recognizable than the head imo.
The former logo is a whole pinguing, not a head :)

keops: That cup icon appears on a grey background when an applet starts. But you're the java expert, so I'll take a cup of stfu :p

knox: the thomson icon needs a better AA ( so does the MasterSystem and Genesis icons ), but globally the shape seems ok

gargaj: spank me! spank me! :)

Goddamned poi, the name of the machine is "Mega Drive" not, "Genesis". It was developed in Japan as Mega Drive, it was sold in Europe (where the demo scene comes from), Asia, Australia/New Zealand and South Amerrica as Mega Drive, only in North America it was called Genesis. And why? Only because some other company held the rights for the name.
(Ok, half of all machines where sold at the North American market, but that argument does not count for me!)
keops: Agreed. It's more that we can barely see its head in the current version. Here's one last attempt:

I'm not sure it's any better, but at least I tried. :)

The original Dreamcast logo has a white background, not black (like the current icon we currently have). Maybe we should try something like that?
BB Image BB Image

These ones suck but it gives the idea.

instead of BB Image

green corners are meant to be transparent :)

BB Image looks nice... just watched some dreamcast demos and it should be blue, not red. (even if that doesn't look too bad either)

To be honest, I prefere BB Image (Japanese hail hail!).

But somehow the demoscene is European[tm], isn't it? So maybe BB Image would fit better on poeut. :)

BB Image ? Damn this DC logo is a bitch!!

melw: The Japanese and American Dreamcasts have an orange swirl, the European a blue one. That's the difference. :)

As I said, I prefere the Japanese (means orange) because even the menu runs in 60 Hz, the Dreamcast is still supported with official games in Japan and so on.
