A new version for Plex 9.5+ (aka Laïka) has been released on March 10th 2011, please go to the new thread to download and discuss the new Retroplex: http://forums.plexap...8635-retroplex/
For eternity, if for any reason you wish to download the latest pre-9.5 version, you can find it here: http://dl.dropbox.co...st-prelaika.zip
Please note that Preen only has the newest version which will NOT work on Plex pre-9.5 versions.
The rest of the thread is left for archiving purposes.
Go Laïka, go Preen and go Retroplex!
I present you Retroplex.
Another idea that i wanted to get done as a skin, some vintage love.
You know, the pin-up's, the amazing design, fabulous clothes, the time gone past, the grainy faded and time-tortured photographs. The nostalgia...
This one will grow and evolve as it has been done with visual options in mind; there will be more backgrounds and overlays available and rotating around the retro/vintage/badly-treated-photographs theme as it gets some age.
Yet more grainy goodness (or badness if it's not your cup of tea).
It will gain more views as well as i have a few in the works that didn't make it to the first release. I wished once again to release from the beginning and profit from all of your opinions/suggestions/requests/love/hate to push it further, and get things straight right from the start.
Not everything is in it's final form, but things will get ironed out, more in-line with the theme and all such things, with time. It's a living thing and as such will hopefully live a happy and exciting life with you.
A huge thanks to radar and Martin for some testing and bug-squashing and precious advice during the development.
Another huge thanks to gedoode for preparing and donating a specific white set of his excellent media flags for the skin.
And of course a huge thanks to Vicarious who, even with some very convoluted and badly organized planning from my part, has made it possible that Retroplex is available in Preen starting from right now.
That's right, go Preen!
So let's go for the presentation. I kind of wanted to give a full preview this time, so for once the presentation expands on two messages.
