Welcome to OverClocked ReMix's new design. It's been a long time in the making, and still isn't perfect. There are features that were left out, and I'm sure there are also bugs or problems that will come up as everyone starts using it. Please post ALL discussion related to the new design here. Liontamer will be keeping a master log of any technical problems / errors you encounter by monitoring this thread. Thanks for your patience, thanks for helping out, and I hope you enjoy the new design and other features/documentation that have been added!

Cribbed from djp's redesign on May 23, 2004, only with my handle added in, welcome to OC ReMix v4.2 (so-to-speak).

This design questions and issues thread continues where the old one left off. Please direct any and all questions and issues regarding OCR's current site design and interface here for djp to eventually attend to. Thanks for your help, and we all hope you enjoy the continuing development of OCR.

Can we get a list of the new mascots? I can get up to 150, but I saw another one not in those 15..

Dammit, now I have to turn off Rama's OCR-R skin to see what the hell is going on...

EDIT: Better, for definitely. But not better than black.

Slightly more compact and shiny-looking. I like it. Have the banners been removed from the top for good now? I usually have them adblocked, but the white space reserved for them was still there before.

And the search box is cute, too ^__^

Broke Rama's black skin a bit! :(

Looking good, but it's still just too bright for my poor virgin eyes.

2nd to last post in the old thread :( I'll just repost it:

Hey, I like the chipamp, very cool! I don't think it necessarily needed to become a TAB on the remix pages though...

Also, you forgot one thing, that I think is essential to WinAmp!

http://winamp.com/pl...s.php?id=132367
"Plays XM, IT, S3M, MOD, MTM, UMX and MO3 modules using BASS Sound System 2.3.0.1"

It's a solid player that will play XM and IT files properly, as well as adding UMX [The Unreal engine's music format] and MO3 [ogg-compressed module] support. I believe it's also necessary since the default winamp mod playback is horribly designed, it does not support midi macros or even the note-off command, which is DANGEROUS as it creates a wall of winamp-crashing noise :(
EDIT: OH YEAH, and... LOOP POINTS :E

If you feel that you need only UMX support, here is a plugin that will only play UMX:

For any future complaints: All that weird misalignment stuff? That's your old cache conflicting with the new images and formatting. Clear your cache and it should resolve all layout problems.

Any idea if/when the new avatars will be implemented?

Site looks good, by the way.

Good? It's great :D I love the tabs, and the search, and and and...-

Sorry if that sounds like sucking up, but I truly do love the new design. I'm ecstatic that the torrents are fixed, the front page looks nicer, it's all great. ...almost makes up for the travesty that is the Sidebar. :wink: :P
Can't wait to try out Chipamp and torrents. (My intnernet speed gets uncapped in another two days 8))

Im not entirely too keen on the Goolge Ads being between sandwhiched between the Remixes and Projects. I liked it better when the ads were on top.

Kewl. I like the tabs for the store and for mixing.

I am afraid that I have to concur with Ninja-san, however.

Same here. I thought it was going to be in the same place as before. STOP MOVING THE DOWNLOAD :P

Anyways, the words run off the side on the main site too, just fyi.

FINALLY 1500 IS OUT :D

Might wanna get a template ready to ctrl+v for the inevitable "WHAR TO DOWNLOAD?"

I disabled Rama's black-OCR to check out the main site properly. It all looks great except for the Site Projects being lined up next to the thread highlights and latest remixes, which I think looks a little untidy. Otherwise good.

I still prefer black-OCR, which is kinder on my little eye-bowls.

Yeah, I was like "where's the download button" then remembered how everything's on tabs now and went "duh, over the write up" and there is was.

Download wasn't hard to find, but I concur with the sentiment that it would be nice if it stays where it is for a while. Some of us hadn't even had time to get used to the old new download placement.
We've replaced John's Folger's crystals with the Manhattan Project. Let's see if he can tell the difference.

I never really saw the problem with the old download button, because it was a BIG FUCKING ORANGE BUTTON that said download on it. The new one kind of blends in. And Watkinzez: Don't make fun of people just because they're at a lower spiritual plane than you. Cheeky bugger.
