What are your specs and what resolution do you use?

I will edit here another with SGrab, as it looks better that way (although I can't show the clear menus).

Mine is real, I can touch it

With SGrab:




We really should make a couple of posters with this wonderful setups . And I'm sorry Michael Englyst (and Amiga Ball), your wallpaper is a piece of art... but I like it more in blue.

Thanks mates because I like it a lot.

Edit: And demonhellraiser what do you want the clearRAM icon for with 8mb? Lol

You (whoever makes it) can copy "Commodore OS" (vision) from here:

http://www.commodoreusa.net/CUSA_OS_Vision.aspx

and change it.

It can be very easy if you just cut "Vision". I preffer to call it "my own C64x", as you and I can't give enough publicity to "C64k" for a custom made C64...x...or a Keyrahred one.

Or you could just create your own official "COMMODORE 64" graphic using Illustrator and add it yourself



I drew the 'Commodore 64' badge from the original computer as a vector, in illustrator, some time back, so I just used the text from that,
but unfortunately it doesn't have the 'K' and I can't be arsed to make an attempt to replicate something as a guess, besides this is how
it should really look, never mind the fancy fonts

Anyway, the boing ball belongs to the Amiga and not the C64, so why do you want to spoil that awesome image with text?

All artwork and 3D renders Michael Englyst http://www.englyst.eu/

EDIT: Just thought I'd mess about while I was bored

How do you do that, man? I don't understand, it's a png image, not gif, and I lose the effect copying it to another place.
Edit: At least I've seen something I was supossing in your profile... "Biography: GFX Artist"

It is a gif image. Save it with your download manager.

Oh thanks, I see.

Edit: Can you believe it? If you try to save it with Internet Explorer you can't save it as gif, but with Google Chrome you can without problems.

This is with a video using another demonhellraiser has done, using DreamScene in Windows 7 with my own C=64x. Let's say that this is a Video/Wallpaper:

In fact you can use Dreamscene in Xp with this program: http://xpscene.softonic.com/


Don't know. I prefer Windows 7, but I like to leave some Pc or laptop with Xp, and with 32bit you won't be getting much more.

You can have an idea about how is to have a video as wallpaper in Xp selecting demonhellraiser's gif image too (well, it has't much quality, it looks like a Tv in b/w) http://i.imgur.com/26yHH.gif . This is an example of things that are better in Xp. You can use a gif as wallpaper, and in Windows 7 you can't, or you can put the music you like at the beginning and in Windows 7 is very very difficult. You can use this gif in Xp too:


If you decide to use the video he did as wallpaper he has to post it, as it isn't mine.

Edit: You can have a nice screensaver too: http://www.kephyr.com/c64screensaver/index.phtml

Edit: Enclosed is some sound from the movie WarGames (1983). You can use this as sound to play while openning Windows. This isn't a rar file, change it to wav (it's just I coudn't upload a wav file):

I've never done it, but googling it seems easy http://www.overclockersclub.com/guid...kxpbootscreen/

You can use the image you like http://www.google.es/imgres?q=commod...w=1024&bih=571

lol, you've only changed the title within the thread, you can't change what it says in the forum index, it will stay as "Amiga Ball Wallpaper Blue' . That can only be changed by either a global mod or the forum mod if there is one

Of course, the forum is titled 'Amiga Scene', so don't hold your breath for it to change to that

Yep, I think that as long as you opened the thread you can talk about your C64"k" or emulation in Xp or what you like, in this case about wallpapers or booting pictures.

Btw another thing you can do is to boot directly without any picture or Windows message, but I don't remember where did I read that.
