tell us what you think, hopefully by default you now have the new commander rom themes, if you prefer the old, you can go back to subsilver, in your profile page.

Got to be honest (I always am - so don't take this too hard).

IMHO - I don't like the Commander Rom skin at all. Way too lite, I miss the little icons for FAQ, Profile and such, and numerous other things. Some may like it, I do not. Sorry, nice try, but not my taste at all.

good, I was thinking that myself.

the shaddow grey seems to make the text more difficult to read.

and the text is lighter in colour

It's a bit of work, but if you like part of the Commander skin, you could try to combine it with the default and make you own skin. Just a thought...

I'm torn on this.
I agree it's a bit too lite, but I HATE the gigantic videopac logo on the subsilver theme. My main machine is a laptop that only goes up to 800px wide. The huge logo is so big that it strecthes the page and I have to vertically scroll to get to the links on the right side of the forum.

I know I'm whining, but vertical scrolling is a pet peeve of mine.

I have the same "problem": the screen of my laptop is also only 800 pixels wide.

well its easy enough for me (now I have learned) to put a few choices of themes here

the next one I do tonight will have a smaller logo, reasonable contrast, for you laptop users.

you will be able to select this ion your profile.

then you can let me know what you think of that one.

Laughing Actually, I like the BIG logo. I've got a laptop too, but it is 1024 across, so no issue here.

As for the current new skin (as I call it), it is ok, it just needs darker text (and a few other tweaks)! Guess I'll wait to see what Richard is going ot try later today/tonight.

That's what I was thinking too, that big Videopac logo sucks, as long as I also use 800px wide.

But the text on gray in the new theme is not good too. It would be better on black.

That's my opinion too.

Since i'm new to this board, i can't say much about the layout.
I just like it as it is.
But on the text color i couldn't agree more. It's way to grey, Just make it plain black

I have tried to change all the text settings I can, this theme contiues to lighten the colour, however, I have just uploaded a warcraft theme which has high contrast and a nicce layout.

over the next couplke of weeks I will change the pics to a more videopacy theme.

go into your profiles to select it.

Yes. The colors, contrast etc. is fine. But it just doesn't fit to the Videopac Mr. Green

Oh indeed!! Much better now Mr. Green

If it gets even more Videopac feeling (= icons etc.) I will be my #1 choice for sure Very Happy
