Augustus Loop v2 now released - skinning competition extended

Augustus Loop v2 is now officially released, and available for purchase.

Read the what's new page here, and download it from the downloads page. Remember you'll need a new licence manager too.

With regard to the skinning competition - in retrospect it wasn't reasonable to ask people to make skins using the beta release, so I'm extending the submission deadline until November 24th. Get going on those skins!

Some notes on the skinning competition

Some people have mailed me with questions about the skinning competition, so I thought I'd put all the answers up here, in case anyone else has a wonderingment about it.
  • I expect people to send me fully constructed skin bundles (like the examples). However I'm willing to accept just a pair of images that replace the images from the default skin, which can be combined with the default gui.lua script.
  • The maximum size of the GUI is 1024x512 pixels.
  • The background image doesn't have to be a small tile, as it is in the default GUI. It can be a single image that spans the entire GUI. Remember though that you need to round up your image to the next power of 2 size (e.g. if your GUI is 400x250 pixels, a background image would need to be 512x256 pixels).

Augustus Loop Skinning Competition!

We have three free licences (or upgrades) for Augustus Loop v2 to give away, and all you have to do to have a chance of winning is submit a new skin. Skins will be judged on aesthetic merit and/or interesting new functionality.
