i'm thinking about to rearrange the Icons of the FutureOS Desktop, to make it better for the situation when the SPARtan is on.
 
I thought:
OK becomes IDE
MON becomes I
Alert-time becomes OK
END becomes MON
IDE becomes Alert-time
I becomes END
 
That way it could look more cleaned.
 
Any additional ideas?

Put the clock and date in the top right (personally I don't think you need these "iconised", a plain string in the top right is enough, but it's not my project! I like text though, I'd make everything a text label with direct ctrl+char shortcuts).


The ability to hide function icons that can't be used in the current context seems logical (is that the spartan thing?) for such a system.

Yes, you got the idea of the SPARtan bit :-)
 
The Clock & Date & Alert-Time Icons will now be only shown if a RTC is connected (in case the SPARtan bit is set).
In the Top Line I like to have the Devices, so you can reach and click them quick. However MacDeath had a similar idea. Let me think how this can be done the best way. Another reason for having the Devices in the upper line, is that they are always visible.
Well, here is an update with a bit cleaned up Desktop.  Set in the MONitor Address &B96E to &10, then SPARtan is enabled. I just work at Konfig-OS to do this comfortably with the application. Will upload it soon.
Meanwhile...

Update!!!
« Reply #228 on: 23:53, 27 October 12 »
Dear friends of the CPC,
 
After a while there is an new update of the FutureOS (see download section at FutureOS - The revolutionary UltraOS for the CPC6128 and CPCPlus).
Now you can use the SPARtan mode. It reduces the number of displayed icons on screen, and shows only what's needed. That makes it more easy for some users. Just have a look at it :-)
 
To activate the SPARtan mode you have to download also the new 'Config OS' utility and set the SPARtan bit in the OS configuration.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
 
Greets,
TFM

Depends on what the user wants:
A unsupported feature,which did never grow over beta phase, or a supported OS with a nice GUI.

Also you can't compare FutureOS with BDOS. Both are totally different things.

Exactly. They have no intersecting set. It's like comparing Bees and Boulders.

FutureOS corner: New SF2 and ...
« Reply #239 on: 19:13, 07 November 12 »
Haha, guess the trolls yap is stuffed... now back to serious things....
 
This is about the new SF2 and the ROMananger. Since I reach a lot of people here, I tell the story here.
 
At the moment Prodatron is starting to sell a new batch of SF2 cards. At least three of them had problems. Now, it's not clear why...
 
Sloopie found out that the ROManager for the SF2 under FutureOS works well, but neither the Amsdos version nor the software for Sos.
 
My question here is: Can please somebody confirm that the ROManager 1.34 for Amsdos and the old Symbiface2 does work? If not, please let me know too.
 
 
Thanks' for your help! You make CPC software better.

A lot easier for someone with my below average IQ to use  ;D
Before SPARtan I found the number of icons a little confusing to begin with, and now it feels more accessible as they only become visible as required.

Good point. Well, I intend to make an application which can cut icons out of a regular 17 KB CPC screen; and manage icons. You will be able to install new GFX for any icon (not the numbers?!?). But I have to move on with Cyber Huhn first.
However, you will be able to install any GFX of your choice as icon then.
MacDeath already did an overwhelming amount of wonderful icons. So from the beginning there will be a lot of choice.

Do you would like an additional ROM, which contains a wallpaper for the Desktop of the FutureOS. So if you start the OS, you will have a wallpaper from the beginning. Good idea or decadency?
