Its time for those Action Shots Folks!
« on: September 28, 2006, 11:47:52 AM »
IF you didn't know or new to the information:

I am now looking for Action Shots for the new header design.

If you took any or will take some, please post them here. The best of the shots will be used on the header of the site, which will cycle them randomly.

I have some temporary images there now, but they will stay if I don't see any here.

If chosen, I will ask of you to email the actual BMP file so that I have a better quality image. (Be sure to take pics without the HUD)

IF you want to see what the header will look like then click here.

Cool web design. I'll have to start thinking about getting some screenshots that may be worthy.

3 weeks left folks.

The new design goes live on the release of Nightfall.

Here's two shots that I got. Not sure if they are banner worthy though...

If you want serious, talk to Alotia,if you want playful talk to Valakria, and if you want a scheaming nut, trap loving ranger, talk to Sagach.

Imageshack has a thumbnail option that links to the bigger picture.

Ok these are not all "action shots".   :'( 










I am a big fan of setting things on fire.

 However, everytime I get involved in an ok action scene I forget to take a screenie.

I had these on file and the middle one is the Tombs of Primeval Kings, before the change to the New Underworld.

Well, half of those are action shots. The blazing enemies look interesting.

Looks like you didn't remember to take most of those without the HUD.

I took them w/o the HUD (using Ctrl+Shift+H), but things like item names on the ground, damage numbers, and the health and name of my target still stuck in the shot.  I'm not aware of a way to get rid of those when taking a SS.

If there is, please let me know and I can see if I can get some different ones.

EDIT: I've found that if you hit Shift+PrntScreen that the health bars and names will disappear, but damage numbers will still float above the heads.  Is there a way to turn this off?

I haven't seen that happen yet...

Must be a bug in the program.

1 week to go. There are a couple of candidates so far, but the more the merrier.
