Subject: Wanted: Screenshots for the main site

Our friendly neighbourhood chat populace has noted that good old UnrealSP.Org has way too little background image variety with it's meager count of 25. Thus, it is now your turn to beef it up! Show us your screenshots from Unreal, RTNP or custom maps (including Unreal-centric Oldskool releases) that you consider impressive enough to embellish the site.

Please make sure that the screenshot doesn't contain HUD elements such as crosshairs or a first-person weapon model. The images will be scaled to 1024x768, so appropriately sized shots (preferably in only lightly compressed JPG format) should be submitted. It may be a good idea to apply anti-aliasing in your settings and use S3TC textures, but it is not strictly necessary as long as jagged edges aren't too noticable after the downsizing. Now go and grab some of the best snapshots in Unreal single-player history! 8)

Additionally, in an effort to keep the beauty of the original 25 (and originalestest screenshot) alive, we are also looking for higher-definition replications of the existing backgrounds. These include:


Do your best! This is a great opportunity to replay some memorable gems.

Good idea. But maybe now's the time to up the ante to 1024x768? :o :tup:

I am unsure about that, since the "old" screenshot loadout is rather pretty and definitely a keeper. I suppose new screenshots could be of higher scale, but fluctuating image sizes may look weird... :shy:

The alternative is to replicate the old shots, which would of course take time. Or, for background images, maybe a decent quality resample wouldn't look too terrible? (EDIT: Actually, scratch that, yes it would...)

Hooray for the original... this one is years and years old!

Well, people are free to volunteer for that. I probably don't even possess half of the included map packs. :P Plus, as I was told, there's also a BFNP screenshot in there...

Also, wow! I haven't seen that map in a while. I still have to play it, too...

If there were, I could replicate one for you, but no, there's actually nothing of the sort. Which one did you have in mind - the Nali on the cross? Because that one's from sbegin.

A shot of a Frieza map, maybe? Of course, this might also be a mistake.

I really don't know what size are you looking for, but I have them at 1024x768, .bmp format.

Bitmap files weren't designed for online distribution. In a pre-broadband world, you'd have been strung up for offering them in that format!

I changed the main post to reflect the 1024x768 resolution change business, along with including your list, Scrag. Hooray!

And now I'm off to bed. :P

Sure, lol, I was kind of joking with that. JPGs are fine enough? Or PNGs?

As long as the quality is relatively high, jpgs should do.
