I can't do it without taking more pixel space from the html. Unless you do want it to eat up more pixel space?

About the who's online, I looked through a lot of LBA images too and I couldn't find anything good.

For who's online: Why not use one of the radar screens in the game. Would've been cool!

How are they related to Who's Online?


I actually quite like CF's image.

What radar screens? LBA has radar screens?

Obras: Their cool. But how do they represent "who's online"?

- ChaosFish: Well... the last 3 represent the planets, which are full of people. The first one represents Sendell, the benevolent goddess of Twinsun.

There are loads of big computer screens in LBA1, like in the factory. And there are a few in the Emperor's HQ. Those were the ones I meant.

what about this holomap sprite?


Or this book sprite?


I personally think the holomap sprite will be perfect for the who's online.

I really like both the holomap and book sprite, Obrasilo's are cool too but they don't really fit with "who's online". The rest of CF's new icons and the new logo are really awesome. MBN looks so nice now.

I like them, ChaosFish. You never fail to impress me. And I think either one of alexfont's stuff will work perfectly!

Thanks everybody! No one has ever told me I never fail to impress them

Sorry for not posting yesterday, my ISP decided not to let me get into some websites, including UTwente and Infinology (the twinadv site is hosted on it). So now I'm using a different computer with a different router and hopefully I'll post the updated (once again) icons today.

Now how about the holomap on top of the book sprite? Wouldn't that be so totally and wickedly awesome?


and Chaosfish, what have I told you about the whole 'target' business before! Yarr arrg! (\/)__(-,-)__(\/)
Don't make me come home to you in the middle of the night, chopping you into tiny pieces of fish-meat. Being in tiny pieces of fish-meat isn't very pleasant.

Actually, I was striving to look like a lobster. But now that you mention it I can see the striking resemblance with Zoidberg. That's quite shocking. :O


This picture definetly has similarities with what I was trying to look like, that must mean that Zoidberg actually is a mutated lobster :O Much like Leela actually is a mutant too :O
Oh my, this really comes as a shock to me. What have you made me discover, o' mighty Fishos!

Thanks again!

Here are the fixes:
Green magicballs (the link/moved icons) are now semi-trasparent using El's "every-other-pixel" method. This actually looks good!
Who's Online icon: it's the holomap (without the arrow and the base) with a "?" in the LBA font on it.
Imrpoved the favicon for El. The only difference is that the current favicon has different colors (I guess he extacted it from the HQR file), while I captured it inside the game, making it use the real LBA palette.
Files are attached in this post and the post following.

About the dot icons, I couldn't make a good looking arrow. If anyone make an arrow for me, would be cool, but I think the star also looks good (check it in example 2).

Why is there a star on the red ball? Otherwise, I think it looks good.

The star is the "dot", it appears there if you have replies in the thread.

Oh god, thanks

About the dot, I'm open to suggestions. If anyone is good at making arrows then please do
I'll check your "!" idea as well, but I may need a little bit of rest (unless I'll compulsively do it as soon as I get home tomorrow).
