Yes, for the mainpage I need screenshots from the game. As you know I'm not the esteemed player I should be so that's why I'm relying on you professionals to just fish me screenshots of the game in play.

If you're unsure on how to take screenshots on a PC, it's simple; just hit "Print Screen" when the screen you want is in view. Then, take it into a program (Microsoft Paint is just fine) and select the portion of the image you want. Then, what I usually do is CUT the selection from the image (shortcut CTRL+X), resize the canvas (CTRL+E) so it's small (30x30 pixels?) and then paste (CTRL+V) the image. It'll automatically resize to the size of the image but if not CW's screen dimensions are 480 pixels width by 320 pixels height.

So yeah, good luck with getting those screenshots, and the more screenshots we have, the more there are to show off on the topsite!

I'll get some screens when a few of my games get to a point where it looks interesting. Right now, most are in the capture phase. Yay infantry!

That's the AWDS tileset. We can always put up screenshots with people using different terrain sets. Or their own custom ones, but I doubt anyone's done that for CW yet.

I might get some up later.

Screenshots should flaunt the custom aspect of CW. Throw some custom units here or there and maybe show them attacking to draw more attention to them. Custom terrain should do the trick as well.

I was thinking of intel screens, but those need a LOT of polishing before they're anywhere near publicly presentable.

I disagree...
I think they are beautiful:

And this is just me dicking around with the editor...

What about a simple design mod?
The open-source nature of the game makes them incredibly easy to do:

( I could'd actually figure out how to make the unit mod actually work, though, so I just posted the unit changes in menu form XD )

I know that you asked for in-battle shots, Kosh, but sometimes the ordinary stuff can be just as good!
( easy modability would definitely make me feel the "custom" aspect of it )

Smurf, that's totally weird and irrelevant. How's that going to attract anyone to play our game?

Also, I was talking about intel screens, not character select. The intel screen is a complete mess; words float all over the place, there are a lot of typos, and there seems to be no cohesive structure at all. Overall, it seems rushed an it's a total eyesore. I think there should be some intel screenshots of some of the more interesting COs so that newcomers get something of an idea what they're in for, but the intel screens need work before we could do any of that.

The point is the customization. You can make your own tilesets as long as you know how to properly edit them in. :P


The screens on the site will actually be arranged using an invisible table and upon clicking the images, the site will fade to a shade of black and a white box will open up, showing a larger version of the image. In fact, it's the exact same applet used on the Smash Bros. Brawl blog. With the image we can also provide a comment, as we would with Smurf's image that no one understands. :P
A lot of blogs use the applet (most aren't even gaming blogs) so you don't have to worry about complaints that we lack originality and stuff. Because we don't. >_>;

Honestly I'd prefer just the thumbnails simply being links to the full size pictures with none of that gimmicky applet bs.

Like on all sensible websites.

Yes. Please. It's real annoying the way you want it.

Ok so lol Edge etc, but the design was finalised. I did actually code most of it, but couldn't do the bars and make the page switch... and was supposed to send the stuff off to someone to implement, but for some reason I didn't. I forget who it was, I'll get round to it this week.

Why don't you use decent looking tilesets if you want to do any.

I don't have anything about old games but we want to attract people and best graphics help when you try to get their attention with screenshots.

hey hey hey, back up the fun bus.

Send me some of those custom tilesets, also, Xaif, new intel screen would be pretty awesome.

I can do the bars and hte page switch, if you have everything else done (though I don't know how you can have the second page done if you don't have page switching. <_<)

Hmm, a problem.

I got a new PC a couple of months ago and transferred all of the files over to it, well the important ones. I'm sure I copied the dossier stuff I did, I mean, why wouldn't I as it took me a while to do. But I can't find it anywhere... Which is really annoying.

The version with them in is here:

http://forums.customwars.com/viewtopic. ... 836#154836

All of the images for them are in there, but not the code. Unless compilation is reversible? I doubt it is though.

I might have a try writing most of it again tomorrow, but it'll take me a while, unless you would be able to do it quickly.

;_;

Like I said before, avoid the intel screenshots until they're polished. I don't think there's anyone here who doesn't notice they suck.
