Announcement   Announcement : Results from DJNick's Sam460ex bounty
   posted by djnick on 16-Jun-2013 10:40:44 (4022 reads)
Greetings to Amiga friends. I decided to release what I've done up to now after Amiga community bought me Sam460ex motherboard in February 2012:

- I've designed a complete AmigaOS.net web site:
http://www.amigaos.net/

Credits page:
http://amigaos.net/content/88/website



  • Created 1st AmigaOS4+ theme called "Crystal". With this theme you will get:
    • skinned toolbars and windows
    • new mouse graphics
    • redesigned requester icons and all menus / submenus
    • my boot and error sound samples [composed in Renoise tracker]
    • my Amiga Encounter wallpaper in 6 different resolutions (800x600; 1024x768; 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1680x1050 and 1920x1080px)
    • redesigned MUI preferences so it matches Crystal theme set
    • changed Filer preferences so its default colors matches Crystal theme set
    • added new skin for AmiDock and its horizontal and vertical subdocks / submenus.
    • added script for black Shell and coloured text


Download link:
http://os4depot.net/?function=showfile&file=graphics/theme/crystal-djnick.lha

  • Created set of 14 full HD wallpapers (AmigaEncounter, Abstract, Abstract v2, Abstract v3, Impact, Matrix [+Matrix col2], Futur, Retro, Retro v2, Space [+Space-green], The Ball, The Ball v2 and Xtra) resized into 6 different resolutions: 800x600; 1024x768; 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1680x1050 and 1920x1080px.

Some snapshots are in my DA gallery:

* * * F.A.Q: * * *

* WHY IT TOOK SOOOO LONG:
  • Bounty is finished in February 2012. Then it took over a month to receive motherboard. System couldn't boot so I had to order SATA cards from Australia. Thank you Belxjander for sending it to me.
  • In the mean time I invested [~440 Eur] into new tower case, UPS, hard disk, DVD Rom, graphics card, USB Flash, keyboard, mouse, USB hub.
  • After receiving SATA cards in April 2012 - system couldn't boot for over 3 months of really hard working and setting. AmigaOS4.1 update 2 boots for the first time in June 2012 [again thanks to Belxjander].
  • In June I got Maxim baby boy so it took me another 2 months for movements from one town to another and preparing place for family. During that time I had enormous of work for various clients [video production, ads, commercials, animations, music, sfx, games, UI and web design]...
  • In September 2012 I started to create themes, but it didn't work as I expected. As I am just a designer [without any programming knowledge] - creating the theme was an extremely large and time consuming problem [discovering how the system works, where are UI parts etc].
  • InBetween Skinning and life I used to create everything others I listed in the beginning.
  • And finally 1st theme is finished [with large help from Kas1e] this week, 1,5 years later after bounty is finished.


* VIDEO PRODUCTION ABOUT AMIGA SYSTEM?

As soon as I get fully working 3D driver I will record a video about AmigaOS and put it on my channel [I already have over 26 million visitors, over 9000 subscribers, between 50 and 100.000 viewers every day and over 2 millions comes by month].

My youtube tracking visits link:
http://socialblade.com/youtube/user/djnykk

I will not record AmigaOS in its current state [as my graphic drivers are not capable of playing video at full speed, displaying Youtube videos, working in Graphics and Desktop Publishing software, composing music... etc.] as it will receive lots of negative votes.

I hope I explained all in very short text. More work will come in future.

@DJNick

I wasn't part of this bounty however I explored your site and just wanted to thank you for your hard work on this. As an OS4.x resource it is great to finally see everything clearly presented in one place for the next gen Amiga platform. I can now direct people to your site for them to get a clear idea of what is happening on the platform...

I hope you can keep it updated with interesting things, highlighting the key utilities that make a platform worth owning, showing its true productivity prowess...

Long Live Amiga!

Q!

@djnick

I would say that getting the awesome looking amigaos.net site as a result of this bounty, has really made it all worthwile. That site really looks GOOD, and can make anyone (mac,windows,linux) fan turn their head and say "hey what is THIS!?"

Hyperion should be proud to have such a site showcasing AmigaOS

You should make more of such important stuff djnick - and let others make themes, boot sounds, etc.

Hyperion and A-Eon should take notice - just look at the little song djnick has made, which has been seen nearly 2.5 million times now - now when was the last time a new amiga computer was seen 2.5 million times by the outside world ?? - this is marketing when it's best, and is priceless.

Good work djnick

Just to make a small note: yes. wesbite is great. But in contents it has been started by DJ Rikki (as explained in contributors page), added by few volunteers and DJ Nick has "just" given it nice look edge. Its nice example how hardwork of few persons can give great results.

@vox, yes, i just wondered it this wasnt the djrikkis site. i somehow dont see so much difference, but some details might have been adjusted.

edit: and the winamp skins are also just collected? i had an impression as if it was presented as own work when released lately. the os theme itself looks rather nice (if window corners were not *that* round, we were talking about it quite a while ago) but still rather similar to the default theme imho.

@wawa The original amigaos.net I made was like 18 months ago and kicked Hyperion into action, however I am still involved in the current site as you may already know I manage the facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/AmigaOS - don't forget to Like and share the page

Haven't found time yet to install djnick's new theme, but yes I agree the corners seem 'too' rounded for my liking as well, but tbh I am happy with the default theme anyway.

No, archive also clearly stated its a collection, not original work. However, it was unavail at one location / archive.

I myself didnt even notice until 12 hours ago, that Djnick and Djrikki were actually two separate users.

I have always seen them separately, so have never noticed theres difference after Dj.


Now im not sure which ones done what.

DJ rikki - contents of AmigaOS website and original not so well design, also making Jack tool for AmigaOS

DJ Nick - doing GRAPHICS for AmigaOS website, boot samples, wallpapers and yes new look for Jack

Or in simpler phrases - DJ Rikki Power user and Hoolywood coder
DJ Nick - composer and gfx designer

Yes, AmigaOS website redesign was at 1st done by DJ Nick before he gets SAM 460 (maybe some later update was done afterwards) but is part of DJ Nicks effort to "beautify AmigaOS and its presentations" - what he has got SAM 460 as reward for - weather it was in past, present or future

Hi

The themes look great, have you created a newbie guide to theme creation for Amiga system - from start to finish.

It would be a shame for others to also struggle and waste time getting the required info.

Your knowledge would really help others - maybe even a blog on how you do each theme for others to follow etc.

Just some thoughts so we can reinvest archive Amiga knowledge.

great work!
