Well, due to obvious reasons I started hoarding just about all the bb sources and binaries I can get.

Most of these are 32bit and were already superseded by bblean 4 years ago, but they might be of interest to somebody.

(they are to me, as I will assimilate them into bbzero :))

For you to share my fetish, I will dump them here. Enjoy!

There are more, fortunately in my archives, like Zeytok's BBLeanMod, bb4win (the original), bb4winmod (by unkamunka) BBClean N.E.B. (by noccy & EliteForce), BBLeanable, BBDeleted, BBLC (older BB effort by grischka) etc... Will upload them as soon as I get everything in line...

What's left is a lot of original bb4win files, ancient and redundant, from 2001 to 2002, including the very first build azathoth mailed to me a long time ago. Maybe I should upload this for historical reasons, maybe not. What do you think?

 

that would be awesome

Attached File  bbMien_712_0003.zip   850.17KB   18 downloads Another of unkamunka's builds that supports alpha transparent backgrounds.

 

I have a few other builds backed up, like BB2, that supported pixmap skinning, and a number of plugins I don't see anywhere else.

Here you go

 

I lighten the package a little bit by removing the uncompressed utbox folder.

nice to see the resurrection of the *box on this site :)

I am here to say hello as well as give users of this network access to my old project named BBDeleted

don't get your hopes up because if you were hoping for an update - there isn't one, hopefully one is not necessary and I will explain:

 

this project was started with the sole purpose on removing features from the stock version of bbLean 1.16, it was designed to be the main shell for another project called Deleted Edition (it is a version of windows that is based on windows xp but with 90% of files deleted from the installation and the other 5% replaced by various versions of files taken from various versions of windows (including windows 2000) - the result of Deleted Edition was a "windows xp" installation that consumed somewhere between 100 - 50 megabytes of disk space after installation) I know some of you may be familiar with this concept of deleting windows files to reduce the load it produces on the system due to the heavy bloated design of the operating system - Deleted Edition was the project that did the best it could "to go where no man has gone before" so-to-speak, as in: to delete as much as possible.

 

and that was how BBDeleted started - the Deleted Edition project could not run on explorer.exe because explorer.exe was too bloated, then after searching for some time I found the bbLean project and at the time it was version 1.16 and it was great (and still is), but I couldn't let it go the way it is - so I decided to furter improve upon bbLean 1.16 by removing as much code from it as possible combined with the most aggressive optimizing compiler we have (intel's c++ compiler) to make the smallest and fastest shell I could and as you may see if you decide to try it (that is if you are still running x86 windows of any kind - preferably Deleted Edition :D), whether or not I have succeeded in this task.

 

so now that you know the background and the ideology behind the project, here are the files, it comes in a few parts: the first is the part that contains everything, the second is the executable that you choose based on your hardware and the third is the full source code along with the libraries and other development-related material, a fourth path maybe released later that contains the profile-guided optimization information (I ran the shell for over a year in instrumented mode to collect PGO data to make sure the optimization is as accurate as possible)

 

ok sorry guys there's a small bummer as I just found out that I cannot upload 7-zip files onto the forum, I am afraid that for everyone that is interrested will have to fetch them manually from my non-standard-port page at: http://manoa.flnet.o...9/blackbox.html

 

my website does not hack your browser into connecting to your local servers and it does not have any javascript on it

Welcome, Manoa, thrilled to have you with us. For some weird reason, I had forgotten to add BBDeleted in the list, although it was included in my archives. Glad to see you again and thanks for your kind words concerning the site. I will zip your 7z file and upload it here if it's newer than the build I have (I expect it is) if it's alright with you. And it would be great if you joined forces with XZero450, mojmir and diabol in the creation of a new build.

It's not.

Firefox is just baby-sitting you because it thinks it has to shield us all from non-standard ports. It's fucking ridiculous.

 

Manoa, I took the liberty of creating a (wget-powered - sorry for ignoring the robots.txt) mirror of your page with all the downloads and packaging it as a zip file. Good job on the deletions, it fit's neatly into 3MB :D

In the archived html file I added a link back to your page and instructions on how to get firefox to stop it's nanny tactics.

 

And about the zip: Strangely this forum doesn't allow .7z, but it does allow .7z.zip, so that's my usual route for good compression

thanks diabol

I reckon this isn't very useful to the very big majority of users because very few people run windows xp/2000/2003 and very few of them run the x86 version and very few of them are looking for the less-featured blackbox - most are probably looking for fancy features xD
