Drobe and RISC OS themed backdropsBy Chris Williams. Published: 4th Dec 2002, 05:37:50 | Permalink | Printable
An early Christmas treat from drobe.co.ukIt's very heartwarming when we get emailed comments and news tip offs from readers, moreso when they have stuff to give us. We were recently emailed by the graphically talented Dave Watson with a drobe.co.uk themed backdrop that he created and, after clearing it with him, we've uploaded the image (as well as a few other in-house designed ones) for you to enjoy appropiately. Each backdrop is in the RISC OS spritefile format and comes conveniently in a 32,000 colour and a 256 colour version, all compressed into a zip archive. If you want to resize them, we recommend !ChangeFSI.
After downloading a zipfile, please read the
!Readme file within. It goes without saying that all our backdrops are 32 bit compatible. Have fun.
