Doooh I just installed v2 last wekend !!!

By the way except from the .info tight with the installation files why powericons needed ? Just by looking at it (I'm not near my A1) it seems to me the GlowIcon script won't work because it will search for the Installation drawer inside the GlowIcon drawer (try to add a simple "/" in front of it to access parent drawer).

Won't the switch to Alpha PNG format will affect using software ?

Any half-decent software should use datatypes, either directly or indirectly through f.e. bitmap.image, to load/remap the graphics, so no, the switch won't (or at least shouldn't) affect any existing, using software. This way any format can be used as long as it's supported by a datatype.

This is also why none of the AISS graphics files have a format extension like ".png" or ".jpg".

Thanks for your work on this - the images are great.

I'll add an option to use AISS for the Reaction GUI within TuneNet (play, stop
etc...)

It could be my eye sight, but some of the selected images don't appear to
differ from the normal images.

For example: The tapeplay and tapeplay_s files appear identical, which means
I've no way of knowing if I've pressed the play button or not.

Either that or the change is just so subtle I can't see it on my monitor!

Cool - Well that was easy enough to add into TN and it makes the Reaction
GUI look a million times better already. Nice work Mason.

(using ghosted images as pressed in states at the moment though)

@Bean

I noticed this too. I suppose with a reaction button, you'd most likely have a button border at the very least.

I also notice that some if the images have a different selected state & this is the first release so tweaks could always come later.

@Mason

Nice set of images It'll be nice when we have a selection of apps using them.

Good point , I was using transparent Reaction buttons with no borders.

On a button surround it looks ok (if a little chunky), though it would be nice
if I could do without the button border on each item, especially tape deck
buttons.

Cheers,
Bean.

Use AISS for the Reaction GUI TuneNet - great idea!

I was under the impression the combination picture datatype + png datatype does not support alpha transparency under OS3 (and that you need a custom loader, like the libpng code).
