Donate JavaCPC
« on: 03:48, 28 January 10 »
Hi together,
as you know, I want to release next JavaCPC as soon as possible.

I am making good progress so I think the release can run in February.

For the next release I have a question to you all:
- I want to include some "commercial" styles.
- A license would cost me about 175€ (without further support)

The new styles look really awesome!
Example: http://devilmarkus.de/BlackEye_theme.png

So my question:
Who wants to donate this feature?
- I can pay about 20€ for it.
- Every donator will be listed in a "Thank you list" in credits

So, if you like, please donate this and I can offer you some more cool styles.

More informations about these styles you can find here:
http://www.javasoft.de/jsf/public/products/synthetica (German)

Cheers,
Markus

Ouch! My eyes! If that background cannot be changed then I'm taking your money, too. :D

Otherwise, sure! It's quite expensive, eh?

I need a 3rd vote option:
"I see no reason for these styles, so I'm out. But if JavaCPC ever runs fast and smooth on Linux, then I'll definitely donate"

Well, the thing is that he's not asking for a donation in order to develop the app - he's doing that for free! He's just asking us to chip in so he can buy a license for the gfx style, so I don't see how your option could go up there...

@ Gryzor: sure, you can setup your own wallpaper.  :o

@ mr_lou: Sadly it doesnt run well on Linux. There is a simple reason for it:
The Linux Java-distribution has very poor sound implementations.
JavaCPC works well on Mac OS-X.
But Nurgle is already researching this phenomene.

About this poll:
- JavaCPC will also have other nice styles
- some "Synthetica" styles are full licensed and I have the key for them.
  (All styles which are allowed for freeware applications)
- I don't vote here because I want your neutral opinion.
- The commercial styles are the first 6 styles from this webpage: http://www.javasoft.de/jsf/public/products/synthetica/themes
  (The first here is standard style and is also allowed for free)

Hey, I thought that after all you weren't looking for donations? Maybe my mind is playing tricks, but I thought (maybe a discussion we had?) that you weren't going for the full version after all...

I would donate if you reconsidered!

No worries about.
I removed all "Synthetica" styles.
