Meine Review der Alienware Alpha

SSBs Alienware Alpha mit Xbox 360 Controller

Vor 2 Jahren habe ich mir als Gaming-PC eine Alienware Alpha angeschafft. Endlich habe ich mal ein Review des Gerätes gemacht und dazu einen Bericht geschrieben.
Kurzzusammenfassung: für mich top!

Eine optimierte Palette mit 16 Farben

Da Forumposts ab und an verschwinden und ich diesen Zusammenhang für sehr interessant befinde, eine Kopie hier in mein Blog von DawnBringer bei pixeljoint.com:

“So, dear friends, I have wasted some time lately with my obsession for
palettes. It’s been tackled before but I felt there was (and is?) more
work to be done with designing a great multi-purpose 16 color palette
(I’ll avoid any talk of “perfect” or “ultimate” as there simply isn’t
such a thing for a limited palette).

Property wish-list:
* Archetypical colors common in games/pixelart
* Real world colors (RGB-space brightness-axis “colorcigarr”)
* Good coverage of the spectrum
* Great coverage of the brightness range (a must for any useful palette)
* Max combinatory possibilities: Interpolations, simulations, dithers etc.
* …and if possible; colors that may work as subtle varitations: rust, dirt, textures.

But as with all small palettes, some things had to be sacrificed: This
palette is very weak in magentas (as that is a rarely used area). It
also lack much in turquoise – but at least they can be simulated by
combining the many blues & greens.

This is public version 1.0 (v9843.7 to me ;))

Some notes:
* The dark register is dominated by blue/violett commonly found in shadows/dark waters etc.
* The lower-medium register has the weight on green and browns; found in vegetation, wood etc.
* The upper-medium register has much blues and orange/pink to handle skies, sand and skin.
* The bright register has the lone yellow and the effective pink &
cyan that  are complimentary colors that span around the spectrum and
can be mixed to a very good grey!
* Red is slightly violett – I wanted a red that contrasted the other
colors rather than being another shade of brown/orange. Still good
enough to use in some skin-shades I hope.

— Mockups omitted —-

Outstanding issues:
* The optimal(?) global brightness/contrast level…these can be
adjusted quite easily without affecting the internal relationships of
the colors very much – so if you have any feelings about this lemme
know.
* The dark register: is there a better combination/structure of colors here?

Comments & questions are welcome! :)Here’s the RGB-values:

And yeah…feel free to use this palette. ”
