Title: Images for the N64 Myth Menu
Post by: ChillyWilly on August 12, 2010, 07:49:42 PM
This thread is for posting images you think others might be interested in using with the N64 Myth Menu. Please keep them as directly usable: they must be non-progressive jpegs of 320 pixels width by 240 lines height; they should be named "splash.jpg" (all lower-case) for the splash screen, "browser.jpg" for the browser screen, and "loading.jpg" for the loader screen. Note that you don't have to have all three. If all you think should be replaced is the loader screen, just post the "loading.jpg" image. Please use an image service for the images, like ImageShack (http://imageshack.us/). Please use the thumbnails to keep the loading time for the thread down. Note that the image service may mangle the name a little - that's fine.

We'll start with the default images so you can get an idea of how to proceed.

I like how you put them in a rar for easy downloading. Good idea.  ~sm-76.gif~.gif

You should probably do some testing with some of these - I can see several that won't work with the menu because they haven't got the right brightness in certain areas, so you will have a hard time making out the text for the menu. The splash is no big deal, the loader only marginally more important, but the browser is critical that you be able to read the text easily.

Post by: Aleomark on August 13, 2010, 01:28:43 AM
yes, you're right, I'll but right now I have to go, I'll back on 5 hours, if someone has any suggestion on a particular one I'll glad to heard
Title: Re: Images for the N64 Myth Menu
Post by: ChillyWilly on August 13, 2010, 01:34:31 AM
Watch the large bright areas, like in the Mario loading image. Remember that most of the text is bright, so you need a darker background for it to show up. However, the title at the top is darker, so the background should be a little lighter at the top. Again, check out the coloring of the default images. Notice that the N64 in the default browser image provides the darkness needed to make the text in the middle show. Notice how I darken the areas inside the boxes to make the text stand out better. Notice how they use rounded corners since many people don't like sharp corners on menus like this.  ~sm-79.gif~.gif

(http://a.imageshack.us/img291/8581/browsert.th.jpg) (http://img291.imageshack.us/i/browsert.jpg/)

Now those should work really well.  :D

And they look good! Well, if you like Conker.  ::sm-29.gif::

EDIT: Trying them out, the only issue I see is the bounding boxes on the browser are thick enough that the text just overlaps on the sides. You need to either make the box thinner (so the inside is bigger), or make the entire box a little bigger. Just a few pixels...

ok I fixed that bright thing on needed areas and join the last posts onto the first one, mm about the border is a shame that I only save on .jpg the original pics and that can't be changed now, but on next ones I'll take care of that.

edit:
conle when I did this little fixing you were making the news, please update the thumbnails to the new ones, and it's cool that my littles images are on news xD, thanks man.

Post by: mic_ on August 29, 2010, 07:53:42 PM
Not for the shell I hope? Splash screens are just an annoyance IMO. You could put it in some sub-menu so that the user can navigate to it and watch it if he/she really wants to.
Title: Re: Images for the N64 Myth Menu
Post by: sanni on August 29, 2010, 08:57:43 PM
No, not for the neoshell but for menu 1.8 as a replacement for the existing splash screen.

Edit: Loading screen:
Edit2: browser
both 24bit so not good for 16bit menu
Title: Re: Images for the N64 Myth Menu
Post by: ChillyWilly on August 30, 2010, 08:07:56 AM
Nice and generic.  :D

How about a browser screen? I'm in the process of putting together a 1.9, so this could round out the built in pics.
