Your design suggestion should really be taken in account by the developpers, it's really good !!

Hi.

Beware, if you make it look that good, people will be even more impatient
to have it running fully :lol:
Good look, I like it a lot. Let it be a lesson to those who think they cannot
help because they are not programmers.

As you probably know, you can now edit freeloader to look like the NT bootloader with

[Display]
ShowTime=No
MinimalUI=Yes
MenuBox=No
CenterMenu=No
TimeText=Seconds until highlighted choice will be started automatically:
MenuTextColor=Gray
MenuColor=Black
TextColor=Gray
SelectedTextColor=Black
SelectedColor=Gray

well you can make it look similar to Dominik's suggestion with

[Display]
ShowTime=No
MinimalUI=Yes
MenuBox=Yes
CenterMenu=Yes
MenuTextColor=White
MenuColor=Black
TextColor=White
SelectedTextColor=Black
SelectedColor=Gray

Simply open freeldr.ini in notepad and edit the [display] section

Note: it does not look quite as nice as Dominik's suggestion

Quick question, are these all mock ups or have some people actually got dirty with the resource files in ROS?

If so, could you post more information as to how to do it?

Thanks!

Wrong.
I am very interested in your designs, and in improving the interface as a whole. I know Alex Ionescu is also interested in this area,

I've already looked into updating current icons, however there are rednering problems at the moment. It's been traced back to a few issues in win32k which need to be resolved.

You aren't in IRC much promoting your ideas though, that would help get them noticed. 80% of developers don't use the forums.

(drool)

i love the clean interface and the colors (and the logo). i think blows vista away (the classic log on style is more secure too IMO).

I have to say that I like the design.

I would be nice if it was implimented.

which one? lots of people like xp and lots of people complained about abandoning 2k look. lots of tweaks came out to make xp look more like 2k. vista won't look like xp anyway.

i think more people will be happy with a look more like ros already looks, or more like vista, than if anyone tries to make ros look like xp.

but even tho i'll try to push 2k or vista (if i had to choose between vista and xp, awful xp fisherprice child toy colors, ugh) my comprimise is always there, i'm not the average user, i can always litestep out of whatever shell look you wonderful people make default.

and if you change the gui to look more like xp, it stands to reason it will eventually be updated again to look more like vista anyway. tis best reason to push vista look anyway, imo. i think MS fixed vista to atone for xp gui, myself.

I've started to work on the interface when I get spare time.
You'll see a big icon update has started and will continue throughout the weekend.

I will work on various other areas after this.

Great news to have icon designers interested. If we could convinve some of the major actors of the windows skinning community to contribute, this would be awesome.
