@z5,

Yeah as I said, never really used Windows myself so don't know much about the OS or Apples software for it for that matter, I've heard it's supposed to be a lot worse though.

The only thing lacking from OS X at the moment is to get E-UAE up to the standard of WinUAE.

@offtopic: i should start a topic about Apple OS someday :o)

@on-topic: updates & changes to the site have been very slow (read: non-existant) lately. I just want to mention that this is in no way to do with less motivation. A.D.A is teamwork and part of the team has trouble finding free time at the moment. Once this is solved (hopefully in a month or so), regular updates should hopefully resume again.

I noticed that A.D.A was actually voted number one in the latest Versus issue 5. Which is great...! So thanks a lot to all those who voted for this little site :o)

z5, could the site be upgraded so that there is permanent 1y-long login (via cookies or something like that)?

Another thing that would be great is a RSS-feed for the forum and for comments.

Sadly, there hasn't been any significant work done on A.D.A. codewise this year, due to lack of time and lack of php skills. I've tried searching for interested php developers. Two were interested but gave up almost immediately due to lack of time.

Just a quick feedback question. When we started on A.D.A. about 7 years ago, a lot of people were still on modem (including myself) so we took the decision to limit the number of screenshots and to use compression on them. In fact, i remember timing how fast the page loaded back then :o)

Anyway, nowadays, it's not an issue anymore. You may have noticed that we now add a lot of screenshots for each demo and compression is gone. In cases, we have several screens for one effect, giving a general idea of the effect in motion. Take a look at Budleigh Salterton or Sunskin (or any other demo released since 2007), and you'll see that nearly the whole demo is laid out in screenshots.

As i love doing screenshots, i might be tempted to redo the best demos: get rid of compression + more screens.

I'm just wondering what you prefer: less screens or more screens. And have you actually noticed the ramp up in quality and quantity.

I think it's a good idea to keep A.D.A as light as possible in term of design.

Of course more screenshot give a better idea of the whole demos. I always think it could also be a good idea that by clicking on them, we could have a fullscreen lossless image of them.

As Bonker says about Budleigh Salterton screenshot : "the screenshots looks very good, I always find it very interesting to see a whole demo "laid" out in multiple screenshots on A.D.A, it helps you understand if the design is consistent or not."
