"BUUF X" Icon Set for Xenon 1.5 Revision 1

[5/27/2008]
I guess I have a lot of explaining to do... I've released a modified version of Mattahan's BUUF icon set as a optional add on to Xenon 1.5. I called it an alpha because as you may notice upon downloading it is rather unpolished but I like some feedback as to its general layout "Did I choose the right Icons ?" and other questions like it are things to consider. Also what are some things (using GIMP) that I could do to improve the look of the set?

Download BUUF X Alpha 0ne for Xenon Portable [1.04MB/3.98MB]
(Md5:0b5a17da37f311c5396eaf95d44f8f31)

Goals:

  • Replace some icons as requested.
  • Smoother Icons
  • Create "Glow Effect" when hovering over icons.
  • Reduce overall size of package.

[5/31/2008]
Goals have been met for completion of the alpha phase. Proceding to Beta. I'm personally very pleased with the layout this time so I'm really looking for your feedback.

Goals:

  • Professional Preview
  • Final Approval

You should look for new icons

You should look for new icons for the back, forward, and home buttons. They are hard to discern.

Nice

That looks much better than the first release, nicely done.

Word of note: Don't put commas in folder names, or even file names really.

Other than that, I have no criticism on this. They all look great, only thing left is the preview. Nicely done.

Honestly, I don't know where they came from! I'm going to have to Google it. The size changes have been reflected.

windows automatically caches

windows automatically caches image files and stores the cache in the thumbs.db files. There is an option to disable image caching, but it sometimes caches them anyway. Windows at it's finest right there Blum

Oh!

Well I cant really remove them then.

By the way, because of papers the "BUUF X Final" won't be released until late next week. Mainly just a new preview. I might change some of the file associations, I don't know yet.

Why can't you remove them?

Why can't you remove them? Just delete the file. And to disable caching of the images, in windows explorer go to Tools -> Folder Options, click the View tab, and check "Do not cache thumbnails"

pre-packaging cleanup

After you get the Windows option sorted out, use this tip to flush all the Thumbs.db files:

My forward button does not show. Sad Forward hover shows, but not disabled or normal. Previous version on a different install worked fine.
