the aim surely must be to get 15! - i know that a few of you have been talking about it. come on get your entries in before the end of the month.

 

in fact get them in now!!!!

 

oh - we now have the official Retrochallenge wallpaper finished. but of course i cant tell you anything about it, as you have not joined in yet.

 

those that have joined in will get the super secret download link at the end of this month.

Just out of curiosity, will it be available in different resolutions? I think that a variety for the different participants would be neat. Here's some basic resolutions that I can think of:

 

512x342

640x480

800x600

832x624

1024x768

1280x1024

1280x800

1440x900

i cant recall the rez of the biggest. the first three are there tho.

 

i didnt make then, so dont have the ability to actually make them any different to how they are.

 

should be ok for most tho

You forgot 1152x864. One of those oddball Mac only resolutions.

 

:) 832x624 was the only one of those oddball Mac-only ones that I knew about since I use it on my 6500 :p

I'll be doing something on my Apple IIc+.

 

And don't forget about those poor Mac users with portrait monitors. And Apple IIgs users. And ...

 

Well, at least you don't have to create one for 8-bit micros since those rarely have desktop environments. ;)

Which are exact powers of 2 increases in the number of pixels from 640x480, IIRC.

 

Confirmation is left as an exercise for the reader.

Hey man! Holding up very well! She's been all over the country with me, and acts as my old school computer while I'm on the road. My job takes me away from home a lot, so it's nice to have the 'portable IIci' with me. :)
