Foxw: Sorry, but I don't have an IM client on my box at the moment. (I'm on a dialup connection, and just never found the need. Might be different if I had an always-on internet connection.) I sympathize about the big honking email attachments, though.

Guess that means I'm officially one of the gatebuilders! I'm looking forward to my first peek at the beta (*cough* Death Reaper *cough* ). But no rush, I can wait if I have to.

Wierd'ville.

Basically I'm working on the DCS & I liked your ideas for it.

far as a standard frame.. what you think of the last concept I posted?

the gate-looking one?
I've already told my opinions on that.
It's by far the best so far..
But it cannot have any antialiased edges, and the component area needs to be completely rectangular, ie: no rounded corners, because the components can't have rounded corners..

I'm talking about both..
The outer edges can't be antialiased, but they can be rounded, it just won't be as smooth as you might want.
The inner edges can be round, BUT think about that the components that are supposed to fit in that area cannot have rounded edges, which means they will have to be placed so that they don't cover any of the outer border and have a huge margin in the inner area... if you see what I mean..
It's like putting the square bit in the round hole, doesn't work too well unless the square bit is smaller than the round hole.

Plague: In case you get this before my email has finished transmitting (!), I just wanted to let you know that I'm dropping some moderately weighty graphics files on your poor overworked email account!

I know that even after looking at them you may decide not to use them in the production skin, but I'm confident they'll make a big splash when you see them animated in your gate.

Let me know what you think.

You can take comfort in the fact that however long it takes you to download, it probably took twice as long for me to upload it! (26.4K max on my 56K modem, due to lousy phone lines in my area. Bletch!)

Mike, Plague & Kev

Okay guyes.. here's the latest attempt at a Standard frame. I addressed the issues Plague brought up.. and feel this is prolly the best compramise between visual and usability.

Please post your thoughts and opinions on it, cuz if it passes mustard we might finaly have a standard frame for the project

And no Plague, I havn't gotten very far with the DCS, the border's driving me nuts.. If anyone know's of a episode from S2-6 where they have a good view of a Dialing Computer Screen with monitor.. Please let me know.

I'll let you know if i can find a nice epsiode where there is a good view of the dialing computer. I'm currently going through the whole collection again to see if there are screwed up disks in there. already found a few

I saw Stargate Atlantis today We have it on The Movie Network On Demand. I watched episodes 1 and 2, they were simply awesome. #3 is also on there, but I figured I'd watch it later to save the suspense and make it even better for me to watch.

Anyone else seen it yet?

Death Reaper

death reaper: I haven't.. if you leak any info about it whatsoever, I'd have to kill you....

foxw: I hope you realise that all components will have a massive blue border if we use your latest concept..
When I told you that the inner area had to be rectangular, I ofcourse meant that NOTHING can stick out in that area, because it'll either be covered by the component, or the component will have to be placed at the tip of the object sticking out.

If this is how you wanted it to be, sure, I see no problem with it, but I doubt it was.
If you wanna have this design, you need to figure out a way to have the chevrons be ONLY on the border, they cannot overlap the component area, it simply will not work.

I don't know how to explain it any better than that.

The standardframe is VERY limited, there's not many things that can be done with it. it's not freeform like any other window.
Nothing can overlap the component area in it, because it will be the component overlapping the frame, not the otherway around. The component will always be on top of the frame, nothing can be put on top of the component. the component can't be made non-rectangular, it can't have a glass effect put on it, no content in the component can be changed in size or shape, no nothing. very very very limited.

But...what if the part where the chevrons touched was also put as part of the border? Would that not work?

And, don't worry, I won't leak any information, except this: IT IS AWESOME! You should see the Atlantis gat, it is pretty cool.

Yea I know! I want to talk about that thing in Episode 3! It was really cool. But we can't talk about it because plague here is too lazy to watch it. Well, I think you know what I am talking about. And also what happened to the guy, and when the next thing happened, hilarious.

There, I talked about it in a way thqat someone who seen it would know, but a lameass who hasn't seen it *cough cough*, wouldn't :P

I _HAD_ a 100+mbit line at home, but I've moved and am right now homeless (=living at my moms place), where there's only modem available.
I have signed a contract for an appartment, but I'm only gonna be able to get DSL or cable there, which means (if I'm very very lucky) at the most 10mbit.

Now y'all should be nice, or I'm gonna pay each and every one of you a visit with my friend "The scythe"..
bwwahahaha..

*L* Plague.. I want to be sympathetic, but being on a dialup and going to the effort to download eps 1-3 Over a dialup modem.. well.. I'm a impatient SOB and I still waited a week to get eps 1/2 and 13 hrs for ep 3

and if you visited then I could run the eps for you

Okay enough Picking on plague, after all he's the coding genious coding the gate

Okay here's version 5b-1 of standard frame with 5b-2 following
