Newest Deviations

Alright, so here we are in late 2013. About ten years ago visbot was founded, and if my memory serves me well, the first release came out in February or March 2003. We had a bunch of shabby websites from early on, some revisions can still be viewed on Wayback Machine. Throughout the years, the layout changed a couple of times and so did the backend. But for a group of people busy in the visual field, our website had all been remarkably text-based. Sure, we had screenshots here on DevianArt, or on Customize, Winamp and some other sites that are long gone. It was possibly difficult for outsiders to get an idea of our craft, but that is about to change!

As of today, a first public beta of the new visbot.net is online. Not only do we feature video previews for most of the bigger packs (more to come!), it's also easier to find the content your looking for. We currently serve way over 300 releases and therefor introduce an intuitive filter system (hat-tip to nemoorange for amazing JQuery plug-ins). You can also choose between bundled downloads and browsing for individual presets for most of our releases. There's still some work ahead of us (search, more filters!), but we think the new site offers a much greater experience than that old text-list of ours. We hope you like it as much as we do and are looking forward to hear your feedback!

Well, I downloaded winamp at least. 3 or so years since I looked at any pack. I don't know where to start. I don't even know if I want to

I'm having a problem downloading [link] and [link]

Can you replace their current installers with the brand new Pimpbot?

I also need a download link to "VISBOT: The Archive 2008-12" that actually works: I've used the Internet Wayback Machine* and it barely helped because some sites had a 'robots.txt' equipped.

P.S.: my reaction is in the included drawing

what's the problem with those installers and why don't you ask `micro-D about them?

micro.D replaced the .zip with the .exe...in my opinion, a bad idea. Every time I try to install either pack, it makes my antivirus filters think it's got a virus onboard when it doesn't, and then the .exe wants to be copied to my desktop (needs admin permission).

Oh, and I didn't mean THAT archive...:facepalm:
