not really. just me messing with piskel (The button, Not the website)
The most unrelated program ever but well for it to be made 100% in mspaint it actually looked good ig:
Gonna upload it to gif later on
Does anyone think these buttons are a bit small? From my memory, when I originally saw them all over the web back in the 90s, they seemed significantly larger. With that in mind, I did some math comparing a 640x480 12" screen vs a 1920x1080 24" screen, and recalculated the size based on screen PPI, which means a 88 x 31 button would look closer a 122 x 42 one. (Rounding a little to make it divisible by two.)
With that figured out, here is an original IE button, from my even more ancient web site, file dated June 29, 1996.
As upscaling turns into a blurry mess, I decided to remake the button from scratch. After a lot of work, I present the IE button 2023 edition:
Here’s an even larger one!
dosent my button look MacOS ish
Can you provide the actual files, if possible?
That’s not the kind of button i mean, sorry
Made this for the website 3ds.hacks.guide, a dedicated website as a tutorial for homebrewing and installing CFW (custom firmware) onto Nintendo 3DS systems.
Should I use your project to make it even bigger? Like a 1000xidk size?
I just noticed yours has a higher framerate too. Nice work!
As I think about this more, in a world of crazy DPIs and screens, perhaps svg buttons might be best, then they could retain quality at any size.
Oh I meant to mention that. I took the animation from the intro AVI on the Internet Explorer 3 Starter Kit, which has the highest res version of the animation that I’ve seen.
Unfortunately it’s not 100% complete and I had to take a few extra frames from IE3’s SHDOCVW.DLL too.
btw do you know the font that is being used?
Well my PC kinda needs a DPI adjustment, but it seems like it’s not possible in Catalyst and Windows (because it needs a specified DPI res, but to a lower one)
‘FREE’ is Arial Bold, 11pt
‘Microsoft’ is Arial Bold, 10.5pt
‘Internet Explorer’ is Arial Black, 13.6pt
I don’t have any special knowledge, it was trial and error until it all seemed to fit against the upscaled original.
heres also a kikoabdou one
idk how to make one :3
