  • luaIDE by GravityScore
  • Sketch by oeed
  • an update program (usually selected as autoupdate)
  • cool Desktop UI
  • a reboot and a shutdown option
  • an easy to use Theme changer and theme base for everyone (if you want to have your theme to download for everybody, send me the Theme via PM and I implement it in the next Alpha)
  • changable backgrounds
  • Rainbow-Crash-Screen (Rainbow because, it's color can get changed via Theme)
  • an Market

  • mostly windowed OS
The following Features are planed:

Changelog
Spoiler

I've once created the OS in german only for subscriber from my YT channel. I'm sorry for the bad english, because i'm from germany. This is my first attempt to program anything. So i hope i get for that little thing good feedback :unsure: . If you see any bug, please report it to me. I already know some bugs, so i put them under this text. There is also a bluesrceen, that only appears if a File is missing or the OS is going in a shell. If you go in the ice-browser, then go in the ApfelOS Folder and run Error.abf then it should be there too. There is also a Version for PDA's, but this is more a test program to test the capebileties of PDA's. There is now a Theme Changer in ApfelOS and if you want to have your own theme to download for everybody, please send me your theme via PM so i can add it in an future update. Please note, that i'm planning to make an automaticly detection if there is a new theme on your Computer or on my pastebin. But this plan will be truth on update to Alpha 0.04.
There is no longer any support for the Home version (BW version) (on BW computers you can install it, but no longer on golden computers)!

This is only for computers! Not for turtles! Else the graphics of the OS are corrupted!

Bugs in the newest version
  • in the bluescreen you can shutdown the computer also with CTRL + T else it would go in a shell (if anybody know how to provide this please tell me)
  • You can terminate the registration in the installer
for Download type in: (Again this is only for Computers not for turtles OR PDA's) (Themes from Alpha 0.03.1 and older are not working with Themes from Alpha 0.03.2 the same is with the other direction so please, please update!)
Updating from Alpha 0.02 or older to Alpha 0.03 and higher with the repair option could cause userfile problems. Please uninstall the OS and then reinstall it again!
Removed DL

Download the Theme Dev-Kit: (This is only for golden Computers!) (This is Alpha 0.03.2, please double check your Version before sending in your Theme)
Removed DL

Download PDA version: (This is Only for PDA's not for Computers!)
Removed DL

Looks promising. I might try it out later today :) Just one question:

one account can have multiple passwords
Why would one account need more than one password? :huh:

Nice job.

I've run in to a few 'No such program' bugs. I think you're assuming the users is running it off a disk.

Most of the files are in German, but I managed to understand most of it, although many won't be able to (I've been learning German for 4 years).

It's more like a bug. It can't detect if there is already an Account with that Name.

1th thank you for the good feedback. 2nd It should run all by itselve (without disk, only the Setup). I see what i can do and if I can't find the problem, then I'm sorry. 3rd whoops :blink: ! I should do that NOW. I'm really really sorry.

Looks good and reminds me to KreOS 1.0 back in early times, dont know why. I think because of the X button in the top right corner and the blue status bar.
Sieht gut aus bis jetzt. Erinnert mich etwas an KreOS 1.0 damals, weiƟ nicht warum. Wahrscheinlich wegen des
X Buttons oben rechts in der Ecke und der blauen Status Leiste.

You probebly sayed it already. This is a pack. So it would be not so easy to do that on pastebin as a single File. But I see what i can do.
Whohoo! A new objective until Alpha 0.02!

Nice job, like It.

You should make the startup time a bit shorter.

Thank you for your good Feedback! I try to make the Startupscreen looks better and to make it shorter. So, please wait until Alpha 0.03

Because of the new Blue Color in CC1.6 i've edited the colors of the existing Bluescreen. I'm introducing the Rainbow-Crash-Screen!

I understand what you mean... one of the most questions that I had befor releasing Alpha 0.01 was: "Are the loading screens not too long?"
As you can see, i don't want to have too long loading screens. Just say what is not so great and i try to make it better!

A little bit of realistic loading should be there, not that your start the computer and the OS is immediately there. so fake loading screens are not bad as log, they are not too long (something like 5 minutes for booting and the computer does nothing is defenetly too long). I try to make it realistic and not too many time waste, but after that you have something that help's people who can't use an terminal. (sorry for my english i'm german)

Off topic:
Next Alpha has a easy to use Theme changer and you can create your own theme with the base that comes with Alpha 0.03.

Why? Quick start is useful, look at CraftOS. It'd be different if u were e.g. loading APIs while waiting, but you don't even do that...

Edit: Of course u can design e.g. welcome screen but fake loading is simply unprofessional...

Sorry for the late reply. I was working on Alpha 0.03 for ApfelOS. So, I try to delete this fake loading screen. This means: Wait until next Update. I try to implemate many new things. At Alpha 0.02 and Alpha 0.01 the loadingscreen was also a placeholder for real loading in later upcoming updates, like the update to Alpha 0.03. And for now is this discussion about fake loadingscreens closed for me.

Off topic:
I've add the download for the themebase and the themetester to the original post. So, if you want to make your own theme before release of Alpha 0.03, download the Theme Dev-Kit and create your own theme.

"Bug" Report:

In the Theme-Dev-Kit-Installer (strange word xD) is a mistake on line 25: It's "read" not "readed" ^^
Strange thing, I know. But it's an irregular verb D:

BTW: read in past is kinda pronounced like "red" ^^


This bug is not crucial, but it looks kinda strange.
