Vintage green GUI


I don't know if something like this has been tried before, I certainly haven't found a thing.

I was wondering if it was possible to make a mod, or a feature for OpenOS, when running on Tier 1 hardware (specifically graphics card and monitor), to run in a greenish hue, as in phosphor screen, reminiscing of Apple II computer and the like. Kudos for adding it's booting sounds (that distinctive floppy drive sound).

I've tried this myself but I am virtually incompetent when it comes to programming, and all my attemps returned nothing :rolleyes:. Is merely aesthetical, and I think it would add a nice touch of computer development, since Tier 2 and Tier 3 provide a much better GUI: a feeling of technological progression. Who knows, maybe tier the floppies too! A tier 1 8inch drive, a tier 2 5-1/4inch drive, and then the Tier 3, currently present, 3-1/2inch drive.

So yes, I am basically asking for a vintage computing tech tree mod, would be happy with just the green screen hue, though.

Thank you for your feedback!

I'm not sure about this but I believe there is a setting in the oc config to change the default fg and BG color of a tier 1 monitor... Dig through the cfg

The setting is in the 'client' section of 'settings.conf' in your minecraft folder. The setting is called 'monochromeColor'.
