Just a thought/suggestion: wouldn't it be better to have only the platform icons on pouet main page? Both platform & type kind of overload the page information, no? :)

What about an animated gif showing the platform and the type alternatively? That's quite a lot of combinations, though. Dunno how hard it would be to generate all of them automatically.

yep, just checked it, it's really nice with types disabled on the main page. Most informative and looking good. Type should be disabled by default, it looks much better ;)

Animation like this could also be used to show a better MSX logo and other logos which don't really fit in an icon.

although this oric one could be replaced by the O only, but I'm not a graphician, let someone else do that :-)

It looks pretty spiffy by now.

Although I welcome the thought of having the platform info directly on the latest releases list (et al), platform and prod icons in a row just won't look any good. How about making the old look the default one again and throwing the platform info into comments.php? (additional column). Or don't show the platform icon, but display the info textual. Or a combination of both.

Like. <prodtypeicon(s)> prod name
platform name(s)

(plus, all/most of those platform icons just look plain fugly).

may be just move platform icon to be after the prod name?
<typeicon>prodname<platform icons>
i think it could be much easer to read.
аnd some platform icons should be changed to be less ugly, yeah. =)

The atari icons are too big/flashy/ugly

This one would be better imo (and smaller) BB Image for all Atari platforms (ST, Falcon, STE, XL)

or these ones, still ugly but less than the current ones imo (and more informative):

seems like planet-d is either very slow or down, again...

how about stopping repeating the obvious and finding the missing icons? no?
added on the 2005-01-16 14:55:34 by psenough psenough
or bothering a graphician to do the missing ones...
