Id agree we should keep ponies and things like "the game" out of the banner. An Nspire Cx should be added. Also possibly Ndoom and Fruit ninja. The theme itself could use an overhaul too, it's been a while.

Yeah I guess Titanium could be used if it fits somewhere. Probably smaller like the 83+ tho since it's less popular now though
I didn't use gpSP finally because it isn't full screen and looked like crap.
gpSP can be fullscreen, you have to adjust the scaling in the options or something (top option iirc). The CX and 84CSE definitely need to go in the banner, and of course a lobster.
Oh I didn't know that. Thanks. I am surprised considering gbc4nspire couldn't be resized :P

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Any chance of my projects getting some love in the banner? :)

Shameless self-promotion aside, if you guys need any photoshopping help I'm pretty decent.

It would be very nice to have as many as possible :D

Also, if you really want many projects there but are concerned about banner size, what about separating the banner in 3 parts and only have 1 part animated?

Good idea, I like it.

But, please forgive my ignorance, what is a lobster ?
(Google translate says "un homard" in French. Qu'est-ce que les homards viennent faire sur Omnimaga ?)

It is a sea animal that lives on the bottom of the ocean. It is similar to a crab or shrimp. A google image search would give you an idea of what it looks like. Its relvant to omnimaga because long ago the member super speler started the rumor that netham45 was a lobster. That's also why there is a lobster on our current banner beside "tomorrow".

Yes, and a bridge should be there too.
Also, don't mess with the Retro theme, since I like it how it is and I use it.

Is this a whole theme change or just a banner change?

The goal of the banner update is just to update the background with newer games. When that banner was made, Axe Parser and Ndless didn't even exist yet (at least publicly). The only reason why the Nspire already had gbc4nspire in the screen is because calc84maniac used nspire_emu which let you load Nspire ASM programs as OSes before Ndless came out.

However, I think that new games doesn't mean we should get rid of every classic there, though. Probably get rid of the ASCII games and text in some screenshots then add stuff like CaDan, Exodus, Fruit Ninja, Pokémon Topaze and such releases there. It should probably stick to projects from members that are not staff/admin of another site, though (although if they're mostly active here I guess it might be fine), to keep it as Omni as possible while not just sticking with staff projects.

I'd say I pretty much agree with DJ_O. Also, I forgot to mention it in my last post, but Axe Parser itself should be in the new banner. :D

@epic7: Just the banner, but I did suggest a new theme as well.

Well, ok, no game then :P
And when updating: I would say leave also the old banner as v5 skin and add a v6 skin :D
