    The following is a copy of an email I sent to W1zzard.

    Just wondering what others thought of it, or to see if anyone has a solution.



    Hi W!zzard.

    I've owned various ATi video cards and have found your tips, hacks and mods to be most excellent. ATiTool is obviously a fantastic little utillity, but the little logo (ATi with a hammer for the T) you've included in the user interface is less than to be desired. :banghead: I have an X800 GTO AGP now and earlier versions without the logo wont support this card.

    I know this sounds insulting and you are probably already mad at me, but I would like to know if I can hack it out in some way.

    It looked so much more clean and professional looking without it, as if ATi wrote it.

    Thank you,

    A loyal ATi, 9500 softmod and ATiTool fan.

    I know what you mean. I wrote Microsoft and asked them to take out that stupid windows logo. They havnt answered my letter, so i refuse to by another version until they take it out. If I were you I would refuse to buy ATItool until W1zzard takes it out...oh..wait...ATI tool is free! I guess you should just use something else.

    Yeah, I was kinda harsh considering what I paid for this fine utility.

    But it's like the GUI was perfect already. Even the tray icon is perfect.:respect:

    I guess I just want it back to the way it looked before.

    I hate to see something that is so well written and conceived looking junky and cheap.
    Even though its free.

    if your card supports temp monitoring, just turn that on and you will no longer see that ugly logo

    Wow...I had no idea ATiTool could do the things its does. I can now keep tabs on my VPU temps (minus the logo, thank you). Also, I lowered the fan speed to 34% and most of the fan noise is gone! I'm coasting at 42 degrees while OC'd from 400 to 575 MHZ on the core. Unbelieveable!!!

    I am glad you took my post as it was intended. After submitting it i though it could be taken as a flame, but it was intended to show what a petty (IMHO) complaint, of such a fine FREE product, you had in your post. :toast:

    The logo on the main screen was my idea, so if you disagree with anything about it, you are wrong.

    Its not the "idea" that's wrong. The design makes a superb, "professional" utility look sophomoric.

    The logo would be fitting on the set of "Tool Time" with Tim and Al. One should write those retarded ape noises into the program, also.

    I hope that was a joke Wazzle. If you are truthfully offended enough to tell people they're opinion is WRONG, that's pitiful. I thought Dan was the only staff guy with a temper, but I notice almost all you staff are....hmmm....too confident in yourselves. That's not really bad until you start putting other people down or telling them they're wrong. Just calm down man, just an opinion. The one and only guy in these forums that has the right to be that confident is W1zzard. And if you were joking, never mind what I just said.

    It was obviously a joke. One of Maddox's saying that fit this situation perfectly :slap:

    If you really want ATITool without a logo, grab an older version. I think it was added in 0.24

    And so you can stop ranting about us "staff", all it is, is that I post news occasionaly. I cant access your account settings, I cant ban anyone, I cant even change my own title. So lay off.

    OMG, good one Thermopylae... :roll: I was weak...still am. :laugh:


    I think the Atitool logo is fine, it's only a logo, plus I don't even see it with temp monitoring enabled.

    I quite like having the ATI logo with a hammer there!

    Besides, if you click on 'settings' and open the 'miscellanious' tab, you can choose to 'dissable tray icon!!! ' :nutkick:

    LOL.

    I think W1z has just about thought of everything!!! :respect: GJ m8

    Wow thermo, thanks a lot for that. I'm a disagreeing guy, I seriously should lay off (although I did know about that before you showed all the posts). Makes me feel like a somebody, a full huge post dedicated to my temper lol. ALTHOUGH, most of those were directed toward staff...which does support what I said before....but okay. I understand, it probably is really annoying that I get so angry on these posts at people, I will definitely lay off.

    Glad your flattered:) . In fact you should be flattered, and I would be insulted if you weren't. I spent a good 15 minutes of my life collecting those qoutes, and I would be highly offened if you weren't flattered lol:laugh: . Glad you took it well. I just couldn't help but notice the irony.
    These little bouts do get slighlty annoying, but if you can take me jabbing at your little flaw like that its definetly cool in my book;) .

    Later dude.

    Hmm, it's cool, but i think the ATI part has to be in the right font... Still a lot better than i could do.
