  • For the Microsoft products, all the common brands can not made a mistake about it believe me. "Windows 10" should be written somewhere this is best practice. And all others can be emitted like windows vista and so on if no special setting is needed for them to install Gideros.
  • @yan, that's not the new API Reference page, that is the old API Reference ;)

    However it doesn't look much better on the new website because when that document was originally created it seems to have been filled up with HTML codes which have caused the strange display glitches.

    I think there are more documents in the Reference which have similar issues. Once the new system for editing them is up and running, people can modify them and we can get them all tidied up.

    The issue stems from not having a set format to use when editing the documents I would think. Hopefully we can get that sorted soon :)

    Gideros is great inside but looks not so great outside, old main page&logo really are outdated.
    I really would love to contribute to it if I had better experience at webdesign. Maybe I'll try later to create some psd prototype, show some more practical suggestions. At some point I used to perform lots of A/B testing when I was working with websites.

    For example Beer SDK looks great ouside, their main page is shining and glowing, the only thing that is bad is that they start with lie "No hidden fees, charges, or royalties"
    I think Beer SDK's home page is almost perfect example of how main page should look like (except lies of course)

  • @Apolo14 I really can't agree regarding the donation panel ;)

    Did you mean Corona?

    If we look at how people pitch ideas to other people, the main buzz thing these days is called the elevator pitch, where you try to get your idea across during a short elevator ride. The new website achieves this I feel as it fits entirely on one 1920x1080 page and clearly informs a potential new user what Gideros is, what it's main features are, and provides a download link. Corona on the other hand spreads this information over seven pages and is full of large extraneous imagery and so on.

    With regards to the graphical look of the website.. well I am not a graphics artist so unless somebody is putting their hand up to jazz it up.. it's going to be a spartan affair (which isn't a bad thing in this day and age of eye candy sites with little to no functionality).
  • On the subject of Corona.. This is the size of my browser window on my display since I like to have a free area for my media player where I watch tv and stuff whilst coding. When the browser windows is this size.. Corona never shows a download link without clicking on the little menu icon first ;)

  • A few people have problems downloading from GH, you should also put the SF links.

    @oleg thanks. I watch my programs in Media Player Classic though, not another web window ;)

    @SinisterSoft Really? It's makes me wonder about the internet when a site like Github only works for 99% of people *sigh* It's a bit like my issue with that blog site that refused to let me signup on 3 different browsers and on multiple computers! Oh well.

    Umm, when you go to download it takes you to the github page where there is a link to the SourceForge downloads also :)
  • @antix this program makes the portals on your screen from any program not just from the web

  • @oleg ahh thanks. I want to see the entire web window though without anything in front of it :)

    Doesn't matter though, I don't want to download Corona anyway :D

  • @oleg agreed, Corona isn't so great. I like mine better, the entire thing fits into one page :D
  • The guide page is almost complete with the exception being the section on MacOSX Desktop export. Could somebody with a Mac please write a small how to for this section?

    You can preview the guide page here, all feedback (especially regarding typos and other errors) are appreciated. Thanks :)

    Note: You might need to refresh your browser window to see the updated content.
  • the monochrome Gideros icon looks bad.
    ii must be modified somehow to improve its silhouette

    the picture is just for an example:




    I'm not a designer, maybe someone has the best ideas

  • @oleg thanks. I don't know if we are going to be modifying the Gideros Logo. I'm also not a designer but maybe there is one among us?
