Where is the site for VisualPrefs?

Hi, I cannot find on Google the site for VisualPrefs. Its the best patch for Amiga I have seen, simply superb, because it enhances the Workbench GUI with colours, which Workbench lacks compared to systems like Windows. Ironic, when we think that the purpose of Intuition at the first place was to provide colorful GUIs. Never mind! If you know the new address of VisualPrefs, or if it is even for sale today, post here. Again, somebody knows of another patch which adds colour to the Workbench GUI, like VisualPrefs?

Thanks!

Yes, that one!

Yes, that VisualPrefs, from Massimo Tantignone. I cannot find his homepage anywhere. I dont understand why is so difficult to see these nice guys and their products related to the Amiga. After all, they want to sell their products, no? If not, they can give it to me, I even know what to do with it! Just joking a bit. I didnt knew that exists another VisualPrefs (I think I wrote right ). Maybe is the same kind of program?

Well, the programm is over 8 years old now He still makes stuff for OS 4, so there has to be a way to contact him (haven't found a contact address though) Good luck that you can find him.

@Leandro,
Here is a link to some files uploaded by Massimo Tantignone on OS4Depot. You may find his contact details in the archives or readme files.

@TCD,
Thanks for the OS4 hint!

Well, the email address in the OS4 files is still the same as the one on Aminet for VisualPrefs. I hope Leandro Jardim tried that one already (note to myself : Next time post the obvious info aswell )

Aminet is a good source to find contact addresses, they are always my first searching point, even though some are no longer valid.

VisualPrefs is one of my favourite Amiga applications I have been using the version from Aminet for years. Here's how a 16 colour Workbench can look with VisualPrefs and Birdie - http://www.amiga.org/gallery/images/...Screenshot.png

Why use the old shreware version, when you can get the latest one, with keyfile and legally for free!!!

Just surf to:

http://www.amigafuture.de/downloads....ail&df_id=2217


I hope you enjoy it!

PS: Just as a sidenote, Massimo Tantignone, the author of VisulPrefs is the developer of a very similarly cool application, that comes by default on AmigaOS 4, called GUI. See a screenshot of it over here: http://www.amigahistory.co.uk/concept/os4gui.jpg

Wow! Your 16 color Workbench screen is miles far away from my 256 color Workbench! I specially like the red windows and the blue texture on it. I think its so good, it could not look better!

For my WinUAE, I use more colours than bitmaps. I use a yellow active window, a blue inactive window, a "cream-like" window background, green text and a nice Win95-like big pointer... Because it uses only colors and a few bitmaps its very colorful and clean to the eyes. I cannot show it yet, because I am changing the icons to GlowIcons (I used prolite icons, it has some cool little images, but look a bit poor compared to GlowIcons), and anyway, I dont know yet where to store and post my images.

This is the best notice I received Gulliver! Without you I never had found this site with the free Visual Prefs, certainly not! Thanks very much!

Now that I found the free proggy (it is installed now on my hardfile), came on my mind I dont know what other programs were released as freeware. Somebody knows of a spectacular, long awaited program to be released freeware, disponible today as such?

Real3D - I am very interested in this! I have an incomplete version.
WizArc - I need this!
Ak datatypes - I cannot find these archives anywhere!
ABAckup, AmiTCP, MakeCD - I think I need these just in case I buy an shinning new Amiga.

AWeb - I cannot find a stable version of it!

Thank you very much!
