Description

This is a kinda mixed tileset. It’s my second tileset, and it features the Windows Classic theme from Vista, and some Windows 98 spice-ups. Sorry there, folks, but it seems that it’s impossible to make a XP Luna or Vista Aero tileset with only 256 colors. Windows Classic is just way more tileable. Well, there’s a Notepad credits window in it, an animating progress bar (see the example level for details about how to animate it), several backround colors (patterns are very hard to get from Vista), a Win98 logo, the taskbar (duh!), diagonal tiles, window elements etc. Sorry for the ugly taskbar coloring, im a n00b at color tables. Well, I tried to make it more usable than the windows98 tilesets, so if you think it needs something more, I’ll be happy to add it.

5.7? This tileset is not worth that.

There are already several other Windows tilesets available, so is this one any better? Nope.

EYECANDY

This does not look anything like Windows Vista. This looks more like Windows 98 or 2000. Although there are Vista icons, they do look bad when used in 256 colours. The Taskbar is from XP not Vista. The backgrounds are not very good. The one you used in the example level is bad because you can see lines there. I do like the loading bar, that’s pretty cool.
There is a Windows 98 style background but it can’t be used in Layer 8. If used in that layer it will look a mess as it won’t tile properly.
There are no tiles that can be used in the Foreground (Layers 1 & 2) or the other 2 background layers (6 & 7).

1.5/10

USABILITY

This tileset is missing the very important basic JJ2 stuff. The Destruct, Buttstomp and Trigger scenery blocks are missing. There’s nothing to use for V/H-Poles.
The masking is OK, but I cannot find anything in this set that is useful for making a good level.

1/10

TOTAL SCORE: 2.5/20 = 1.25 = 1.3

RANK: F = Bad

DOWNLOAD?

As this tileset is missing the basic JJ2 stuff, this set is not very useful. Also, the tiles appear grainy which doesn’t look good. So, no DR.

Rating New Windows 98

To start
Another Windows-tileset. And once again it is a very worse tileset. If you like this tileset, you are a very strange human.

Practical: (20 pts)
More than impractical. The worst facts are these: it is impossible to create beautiful platforms and you can’t create a nice background. And you can’t put spikes into your level with this tileset. And there are a lot more bad things, so no points at all for this part. I’m terribly sorry…
Result: 0 pts

Beautiful (20 pts)
Well… it is NOT beautiful. No beautiful things, even not for layer 8. The paths are boring grey and there are almost no colorful things. So also a big fat zero for the second part.
Result: 0 pts

Orginality (10 pts)
There was no Windows Vista Tileset yet uploaded, so that is original. But I can’t give you more than one point, because the rest is not original. If you put some more program-things into your tileset and maybe with some viruses which you can use as spikes I’m sure you’ll get more points…
Result: 1 pt

Example Level: (10 pts)
There is an example level, but it is very worse. You can’t discover how you should use this tileset. Which obstacles could you place into a level made with this tileset? Which enemies are good to use? So once again just one point.
Result: 1 pt

Conclusion
Very bad tileset. If you want to create a new Windows-tileset, just ask an advance tileset-creator for help, like Agama or Blade. And also my friend Gus is a very good tileset-creator. Maybe they can give you tips and hints for your next tileset. In advance: good luck with your next files…

RATING Windows Vista Classic

Another Windows-based tileset…
[Yes, I have also TSF]
BUT… Is this Windows Vista??
NO!
Only the icons looks like Vista. All other looks like Windows 2000.
Also- The Eyecandy objects are too rough. Thatws what happen when you make tileset with 256 colors.

RATING-60/100=60
Download? NO. but if you want another Windows tileset-why not?

ummm. What to say. This is a bad tileset. There’s no destruct blocks or poles or not much of anything! The tiles are just ones from windows and thus it’s almost impossible to make anything interesting with it! It’s would be hard to make secrets or even a challenging level! Plus there’s not much to the tileset. Also there’s almost nothing you can use as foreground. It’s a nice idea though and it does have some good sides. There’s tiles to make a background and the loading bar is cool. If you want to make a windows level then this is your tileset but if you want to make more complicated levels then stay away.

Overall I give this tileset a 2.5

DR/no

Another of these vindows sets. They are kind a like rare now.
Eyecandy 14/20
good, but not much. There’s a bit too low number of things. Icons are ok, but the prog icons size doesn’t match with the others.
usefulnes 10/20
levels made with this doesn’t look very awesome. The masks could be a bit better.
idea 7/20
the idea is taken from windows vista, but it doesn’t look like it. And, some of the graphics was drawn yourself, wich gives you few more points. Anyway, I’ve seen better windows sets.
palette 18/20
normal. Nothing new or odd.
others 7/20
harmfully, this tileset has a lack in event tiles, such as poles, sucktubes and vines.

56/100
score under 75, no download recommendation.
