[Help wanted] Screenshot creator
We are looking for someone with an eye for screenshots who can take pictures to be used as mission loading screens.  We have about half of the required images, so we just need to get the remaining set before we release Scroll Act I.  Hopefully this will be just about one month away.

If you are interested, please post examples of screenshots you've taken.  Some examples can be seen here.  For those looking for campaign news, these also double as Mystery Pics. :)

Nice.

Out of curiosity, do you plan to use an HTL arachnas in scroll?

I do remember the old arachnas in one of the site screenshots and at some point moonred modeled an HTL for the inferno alliance mini campaigns I think.

Ah, yes.  We are now using the HTL Arachnas.

Re: [Help wanted] Screenshot creator
Are there special requirements for screenshots?
If i read about "The Scroll of Atankharzim" i think primarily about screenshots that should contain vasudan ships or technologies.

If you want to know, what my nickname means, -chen is a german diminutive term, so you can translate Novachen as something like Little Nova or Novalet.
Even my original meaning of this name is more like "Sweet pretty deadly (Super)Nova".

Ya, I responded.  This thread is in the public forum, so it's geared more towards the HLP public (i.e. people who aren't already members of SA).

The idea is that each loading screen will be related to the mission, without giving anything away.  Think of the loading screens that are used in Derelict, except whereas Derelict used the same loading screen for multiple missions in a row, Scroll will have a unique screen for each mission.

So, yes, Scroll is Vasudan-based which means it will contain a lot of Vasudan ships.  But the intent is not to create a random screenshot with random Vasudan ships.

Re: [Help wanted] Screenshot creator
Small suggestion: Try to avoid situations like first screenshot, guys. Shockwaves U used are very bright and are more than a half of the whole image. As actual loadingscreen, it would blind player and totally distract his eyes from everything else on the screenshot.
Try to go for something like 2nd and 3rd screenshots. They are nice, close compositions with distinctive eye-catching elements and they both follow the rules of golden division.

I like the first screenshot, so it stays.  I think the bright shockwave makes it more dramatic.

If you have some ideas on what might make a good screenshot, you are welcome to post some examples of your own screenshots, as described in the first post.

Exile gallery thread. Also some of my winning entries in Screenshot Contest are on FSWiki.

Yeah, I would help with that instead of posting advices but I'm currently pretty busy. Also trying to find place in queue for Faustus II.

Re: [Help wanted] Screenshot creator
I think it's due to clogged files in the FreeSpace Open folder in the Hard Light productions folder in the AppData/Roaming folder. Perhaps you should take note of this and none of this will occur in the future.

It's a series of tubes. And if you don't understand, those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and it's going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material.
