Snow Leopard developer preview assets wanted

While watching the WWDC 2009 I noticed small differences in the DP and final release versions of Snow Leopard such as the Quicktime icon, and the slider that resizes icons.

I've since tried to create custom versions of these but was wondering if anyone here could provide me with art assets from the DP itself?

I do have the DVD at home, which falls just under a year short of the Mac Garden 10 year policy.

Let me see what I can do with that. Not sure where to find the slider, but the purple QTX icon should be easy, provided I can find something to install to.

Ooh, that'd be great ^.^ I'd love to have the FileType icons that go along with the QuickTime Player app icon itself too if you can. They're inside the app in Resources.

Most art assets I'd like to take a gander at would be in
System/Library/Core Services/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources
System/Library/Core Services/Finder/Contents/Resources
System/Library/Core Services/Dock/Contents/Resources

So if you could raid those folders grabbing any images, icons, or anything else not glued down I'd love ya for it!

Separately, I've found at least one icon set from DeviantArt that looks to be a solid recreation of the purple icon, with UTI/FileType icons to boot; https://www.deviantart.com/pro-macbook/art/Quicktime-X-Icon-Pack-129809842

My DVD is the Snow Leopard WWDC 2009 Developer Preview. There was a WWDC 2008 edition, which was simply dubbed the "Snow Leopard Developer Preview", with an identical sleeve.

This copy _might_ be stuck with the blue Q instead of the purple Q, as I remember that color change happened very soon after the 2009 keynote. Nonetheless, I'll see what I can find.

I know about the re-creations on deviant art Tongue the version I have in my above screengrabs is a custom one I made myself.

I didn't even know there WAS a DP dating back to 2008 o.O but I'm sure that far back it was barely anything more than some technical changes over Leopard.

As for your 2009 disc I believe the assets I want ARE on there. It was at WWDC 2009 the purple QuickTime icon was seen and at the end of the show they said a developer preview was going out that same day..... so, if you DO have that disc I'd appreciate anything you could grab from it.

I regret to inform you that QuickTime Player X's icon in the WWDC 2009 Developer Preview was none other than...

...the QuickTime 6/7 icon! Straight from Essentials.pkg.

I don't know what build the WWDC 2009 demos themselves were done from, but I suppose it wasn't one that was printed to a DVD. Alas.

Huh.... thats odd o.O ...guess I'll just have to be happy with my customs then.

Could you still share the other assets I mentioned? I'd still like to do some tinkering ^.^

To the extent that it might be useful... https://a.uguu.se/4VeHNk3QM7uc_2009-old-resources.zip ...only available for 24 hours, at that.

But comparing its contents to Leopard, in many instances it has less.

My guess is that the new design assets were mostly reserved for downloadable updates. Maybe as a security measure, who knows.

You're right, there wasn't much in there :/ it seems like a lot of what appeared during that conference didn't even make it into the developer preview.

The only real difference in files I could actually see were the "Back" button for Stacks windows being a different shape, a few differences in Expose, and the Desktop icon using Leopard's desktop wallpaper instead of Snow Leopard's.

Thanks for the help though with this! It shows me that if I want the things I saw during the conference I'll just have to whip them up myself.
