THE 56k Details »
THE 56k
Mod Version: 1.00, by Brinnie (Banned) Brinnie is offline
Developer Last Online: Jan 2013 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.5.0 Beta 4 Rating: (3 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 42
Released: 21 Jul 2005 Last Update: Never Downloads: 36
Not Supported  

This style is optimised for 56k users and is entirely greyscale.

With exception of post icons, the style contains no 'colour' whatsoever.

It runs around 30-40% faster than the default skin (maybe more) and it doesn't look like s+++.

AND it comes fully loaded with power windows and anti-lock breaks.

1. Import the XML
2. Upload the folder named "56k" to forums/images

And to show you how I roll, you can remove the skin copyright. =)

i think he just means people can make the page any color, not just grey.

oh well, i think it's good. i wouldnt use it because i think everyone needs to make a jump to broadband because 56k is like 14.4k when 56k came out

Most of the bandwidth in a forum is from the load of the html code
The images are load one time and after all is stored in cache (generally)

I think a true theme for 56k is composed with less images (or see here, with less sized imgs), and with some cutted code and options (WYSIWYG, and other types of code that only eat bandwidth for 56k or less users)

1) I have pwnd off many images that I have deemed "unnecisarry", such as the post keys.
2) Don't users have the choice to use WYSIWYG? Even before I was an admin I knew how to shut that off/on in my controls.
3) I wouldn't download this skin until my next update. (soon)

Thumbs up Nice work...it is faster...

Brinnie, do you have this skin for 3.0.x? I'd like to install it on my board right now, but I'm not going to use 3.5.x until it's released as a point version and others have had it up for awhile.

With all the development going on, I'm not going to start skinning until it's final, or very very close to final. :ermm:

You need to remove the thumbs.db files from the archive. It'll cutdown the size of it. They're only for showing thumbs in windows explorer.

I didn't make the buttons I use I just made them 56K friendly.

56K wins, sorry for being such a competative arse.

This really shouldn't be called a "56k" style. Seeing as the images are greyscaled and that is the only change, it is just a normal style. (It's nice, but not any better for 56k'ers than the default style.)

A real 56k style would replace most of the statusicons and buttons with text, elminate the gradients and use just color, and use the stylesheet to define styles as much as possible (dont use the style attribute).
