Anyone wanna come up with a "favicon" for us?

I recommend something simple. A Jack Frost head, Seal of Solomon, or something of this nature.

Also be prepared to not be pissy if your favicon isn't adopted / used in perpetuity hearton

A long time ago, someone made a gif of Hitoshura summoning Serph but unfortunately the image isn't there, that would be cool to use as a favicon, but I guess it was too big to be a favicon.

The favicon should be generic enough to be apart from any single game/series rainbow

I boosted the face off the back of the P3 tarot cards from the animated gif in that same thread. Just to see how it might work. 16x16 seems to be the defacto standard. That's a real crunch nolaff

Oh, I was just seeing if it would work. I actually had some trouble with it, believe it or not.

The gif is actually 32x32 so it get's resized:

Mock-up for a new banner design?



If you wanna, you can try to turn the little man into an favicon for us. If you can figure out how to make an ico file that'll work. But I think a gif is ok too -- and possibly more politically correct not being a Microsoft format. 16x16 seems to be the only usable size still. I can't think of another damn thing that would fit in so few pixels. These icons go back to Megaten2, so it's kosher as far as I'm concerned. And probably the best idea we'll come up with smug

PS: If you use a gif you can even try to animate him hearton

Those are the exact pixels used in Megaten2 as well. There are six icons from MT2 (from my manual)

I'll see what I can do on the animation front.  In the meantime.  16x16 gif.



I'm not sure how I'd go about making it in .ico format though...

Don't worry about an ico version.

But I would like you to try to make a whiter one somehow. That's the traditional colour. Whether with an outline, background, drop shadows, or whatever you can come up with, if there is wiggle room.

Actually if there isn't room for anything fancy, I think just straight white will work. All the browsers but IE have enough sense to not put the icons on a white background. This site really isn't very IE compatible anyways.

edited: Also looks like IE might only honor .ico files, so fuck it. It should just get it's shit together or die at this point anyhow.

offtopic: While I'm at it, another thing that pisses me off about browsers, is they can't even automatically download fonts when a website wants to use them! I guess that is space age technology...

Yeah, I just inverted the image because I thought a white one wouldn't show up in the url bar.  I could put it on a black background if you want...  It might look better as a square anyway.  I just don't think putting a shadow on it is an option though.  I mean I could try but I'm guessing it would look like a weird blob.  An outline might work...  I'll tool around with it this afternoon.

EDIT:  I'm pretty sure the nakama icons in Raidou are yellow but it would probably clash with the overall look of the site.
