    req: Tempest inspired skin

    ""


    You know the game, what about a tempest inspired skin, with selections done with a rotary knob?

    It must make for very fast non-ts selection, but may be a bit complicated to do.

    just a crazy thought.

    bit of a bump, idrive is nearest to this idea, but not very tempest-y looking.

    @Enforcer:
    I guess he means that by rotating the knob () you rotate through the selectable obtions of the menu.

    I can't beleive you never played Tempest! HERE is a pretty poor flash version, but you get the point. It's just not the same without a rotary control / POT knob!

    Yeah, got that.


    It was more of a question of whether he wanted the graphics to be similar and what he had in mind for the placment of information and playlist etc. (I don't seem to recall the game having a music playlist or GPS in it.


    Although maybe the highscores table could be the playlist?

    Must admit I had not thought of the gps aspect, that does not really lend itself to the use of a rotation control in that way.

    Good thinking!
