Is there something new?
Hi folks,

I haven't been around here for months, and have not been keeping up. (BTW, I also tried to update my email addie but the form would not 'submit.' Anyone know what's wrong?)

Anyway; I was wandering through Best Buy yesterday, and saw a big screen displaying what was obviously a version of 'Goldfish' but it was different than what I have. There were big square rocks and BRIGHT BLUE gravel !!!! The goldfish were my old friends.

I know that in the past folks were talking about a possible 'fishtank' version with divers, castles, etc, etc. Has something new been created. I am so out-of-the-loop :)

It must have been running on a Mac... The Mac version got the new hottness but "we" haven't yet...

The bright blue gravel isn't a Mac thing.

That is a special Microsoft version for the Media Center OS. Only Media Center will have that as of now.

You guys made another deal with Microsoft? No comment. :)

Saw the blue gravel and square rock version at Cosco last night. Didn't like it. Don't want it.

I found a picture of the new aquarium. I think it looks pretty slick and I would LOVE a copy of this baby!!

ESHIREY 11-22-2004 08:31 PM

Hey Q-Beam, Thanks for the pic. I like it. :TU:

I saw this but thought it was running on a mac when I saw it.

James 11-22-2004 10:32 PM

WOW, that gravel is so BLUE!!!!! like those dyed pebbles sold in the pet shop....

I like the squared rocks though...

So it's only for Media Center OS, not for public sale?

PS: there's a on the gravel front....:D:D:D

Reviews of WinXP MCE 2005 Goldfish Aquarium (Blue Gravel)
1 Attachment(s)
It's turns out one of my friend has WinXP MCE 2005 installed in his computer, so he gave me that special blue gravel version of GA. And I've installed it in my WinXP Pro.

This is my review, let's look at its setting panel first, since my friends's WinXP MCE 2005 is Simplified Chinese version, so all the settings are in Simplified Chinese.

The top section on left is the "Tank appearance setting", you are able to select two tanks namely "Green Plants" and "The Zan Garden", It looks to me the name should be rename as "Medium Planting" and "Rocks Only" if you compare it to the normal GA. The option below it is
"Change Tanks"
Occasionally -------------|------ Frequent
This is quite a new style to see that Prolific use the slider bar to implement the tank cycle option, however, from experiement, the tank won't just cycle like normal GA, but it changes on the next start up. It's similar to what Morgan's design for MA's fish selection method long ago. So the slider bar controls how often the tank should alternate on each start up.

The meddle section on left is "Sound" control, it's a Bubble sound with a volume tunner.

The bottom section on left is the "Lighting" with an "Automatic Lighting" checkbox and the two sliders (Foreground and Background) that we're familiar with.

The right section is the available fish, there're only 7 goldfish: Brando, Freida, Ginger, Jack, Monstro, Morgan and Oreo.
As usual, you can only have 5 fish at a time in the tank, available for random or disable in each fish slot.

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 01:05 AM.
