Re: [Release] Prevue Software 7.8.3

I noticed that as well about the non working banner but forgot to mention it in my post from last month. I tried a few things (such as just naming it banner.uv or prevue.uv) but so far no success in getting it to show (in addition to the above possibilities, perhaps it is looking for a path/filename...

Re: [Release] Prevue Software 7.8.3

This new discovery has caught my attention to the point where I have finally been able to return from my 6 year hiatus. 8-) I have been on here off and on as a guest over the years, but long story short real life happened and I hadn't found much time to dedicate to hobbies such as this. That is unti...

Re: New Prevue Fonts

This is awesome! The fonts are looking sharp 8-)

Interesting that there was a "font" for all of those 1990 TV logos. I think it'd be cool to pick a few and use them as logo overlays in VLC player when playing videos...

Re: Amazing...3 years of being a member of this forum

I have been glad to be here for nearly 2 years now. I credit you guys for my ability to emulate the Prevue channel on my computer because I would never have discovered any of this by myself. The programming aspect was well beyond my capacity :lol: I am also glad to help in any way I can as well.

Re: HELP ME ON PREVUE/TVGC DISK IMAGES !!!! (emulation)

You have to mix the colors down to 16 colors. The more colors that your uv file has, the larger it will be. It is normal that you may not be able to fit more than a few on your image (I have 8 total, but would have less had I not been able to set up my listings on a folder posing as a hard drive, us...

Re: HELP ME ON PREVUE/TVGC DISK IMAGES !!!! (emulation)

Seems to me this happened to me the first time I made my own banner as well. I am sure there is an easier way, but I ended up taking a copy of an existing banner that showed up with the right palette and pasting over it with my own banner (in one of the workbench paint programs, of course). If it sh...

Re: HELP ME ON PREVUE/TVGC DISK IMAGES !!!! (emulation)

Haha... wow... fail on my part! :lol: I guess that is what I get for trying to post on 3 hours of sleep! They are definitely different. I saw the eye logo and was like "well, there ya go!". I recall there being only one logo in the late 90's Prevue, but it didn't occur to me that I fell fo...

Re: HELP ME ON PREVUE/TVGC DISK IMAGES !!!! (emulation)

PrevueNetworks- I custom-made my tvgbannr.uv file but it was difficult to do so. I took a screen shot of the 1994 Prevue logo and used XnView to reduce the colors to 16 colors (I had to reduce the colors bit bit by bit, like from 256 to 128, 128 to 64, all the way down to 16) and I could not get it ...

Re: New youtube videos

Looks like a new youtube video of the Prevue Channel was posted. It is the Latino version... but it is pretty much the same beast. Oct. 27, 1995. It could be when they were just beginning to switch over to the "eye" logo (I am wondering if this version had that logo first, or if this was a...

Re: how do i fix Movie and TV Ratings?

Actually, I have used that startup script for nearly a year and it has always done that (using an 8mb CF card as the virtual HD with a dump of all the ADF's contents so that I can edit on the fly). Then again, I am not very good a scripts/code at all, so I probably did something wrong along the way ...
