Obsidian Buttons for EV/EVO

Obsidian Buttons is a pair of free plugins: one for Escape Velocity called "EV Obsidian Buttons" and one for EV Override called "EV Override Obsidian Buttons." They both provide replacement graphical buttons for the respective games; you may prefer them to the originals. They look rather similar to the black buttons used on the EV web boards.

They don't look quite as good as I'd like, because 25 pixels isn't tall enough for the effect to really work (and having to dither them to the System Palette doesn't help either). However, I'm fairly happy with them -- I think they look better than the originals.

Had I known how many bloody buttons there were (and how many different sizes), I wouldn't never have agreed to do them. 🙂

Damn cool, they kick all the other buttons' arses.

I've been using them for six months and am still quite happy.

yeah, I moved them once I got the EV/EVO file archives up and running -- sorry about that. You can find them here:

I'm sure you could use them in EV/Nova instead of the horrible buttons in IMHO that were used in the original Nova plug. I'm sure they'd look even better in 16/32-bit.
