Lord_La_forge Posted November 29, 2004 Share Posted November 29, 2004 (edited) We need to collect some captures from Rebellion, so we can create a screenshot section on this site!!! This sticky will be unlocked on 2nd of February. I hope we will get dozens of pics by the time! Guide: Brief: We need some spectacular shots! Do not link in pics from Solo sitting alone on Yavin. Try to capture something more interesting. Boring pictures do not equal to typical pictures! You can capture more common events too. But they must be somehow "attractive". You'll figure it out.... We need pics. of diverse situations to get a full picture of our loved game. You have to comment your picture with some words. Do not write whole stories! Ok. Well, actually you can, of course. But in the screenshot section, we will only include 1 or 2 rows of comment. However, it will be seen in full here, in this forum. But remeber, this is a screenshot contest. Basicly, we need pics for the original Rebellion! If you have heavily modded stats, or new models, or any obvious sign of modding, please start your post with the highlighted word "Mod". You can share your pics of modded game, but for now, it won't be uploaded! No manipulations please! Don't draw a beard for Mothma, and don't place text on the pic. Technical: Important. The pics have to be uploaded in 640x480 (they will be. This is the games res. size) All pics MUST be in jpg format. Your pic can't be bigger than 90kb. You can correct that with jpg compression. You MUST create a thumbnail picture for your shot. It has to be 10% of the original. That's exactly 64x48 points. The filename should be the same as the filename of your shot, but place a "t" before the name (ex.: myshot.jpg - tmyshot.jpg) Don't worry, that's not difficult at all. You can read the instructions below... We can't accept emailed pics. You have to LINK IN your pics in this forum. However, if you wish, you can still place your thumbnail image right in your post using the IMG tags. Prizes? Yes, there will be rewards too. This will be revealed in some days here, in this bullet. They should be hidden until atleast some pictures arrive... Help: You will need a copy of Rebellion of course, and a sofware, that can make screenshots.I recommend you to use IRFANVIEW (http://www.irfanview.com/), which is a FREEWARE picture viewer and editor programm. But any else such sofware will do the job. ( like Hypersnap too) HOW TO MAKE SCREENSHOTS? With Irfanview, you have to push the "C" button, set it to "foreground window" and I recommend you to set it to "save c. image as file..". This way, you only have to push the hot-key while ingame, and Irfan will save it to a file, to a place you can set here too. You can do multiple quick shots this way. HOW TO CREATE THUMBS?With Irfan, go to image/resize-resample. Set the size to 10%, and save ot to a new file. (notice, it has to be 64x48) In the future If I succeed, and this contest brings it's efforts, we will make several new contests in the future (writings, fanart, gifs, cards etc..). The purpose is to activate all forum members to show their creativity and loyalty to the game Edited February 10, 2005 by Lord_La_forge Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
