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. =)

It looks the same but in greyscale? Why does the style being grey make it load faster?

If theres a demo, it would be great. We could test the speeds, although as has been mentioned, I'm not sure if the speed would be any different. All images seem present.

You do decrease image size slightly without color, but I wouldnt have thought it would make a noticable difference.

Looks good though, almost Sin City esque..

Actually it is well known that the graphics that ship with vBulletin are not at all optimized. Save the originals from the PSD and optimize them and see the difference in size. Grayscale is a 256 color palette so unless you reduce the palette, the optimized image should be the same size a full-color optimized gif which is also a 256 color palette.

My point is it'll make no difference in the rendering of the page, just the images... I wasn't having a go.
