I'm using this as a wallpaper...
....just got the computer, so I didn't have any images, went in and took some shots, turned it into a wallpaper.

Thought I'd share. Click. This is actually sort of loss of data, considering I had to stretch from 1024. Still looks pretty enough to be on my desk though...

Me likes. This is going into my collection of wallpaper images.
Spoon - I stand in awe by your flawless fredding. Truely, never before have I witnessed such magnificant display of beamz.
Axem -  I don't know what I'll do with my life now. Maybe I'll become a Nun, or take up Macrame. But where ever I go... I will remember you!
Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.
Nuclear1 - I want a duet.
AndrewofDoom - Make it a trio!

Yep, like I said. In-game shot, however with quality loss because I resized from 1024 to 1280 (couldn't be arsed to run the game in 1280) and .jpeg'ed.

Looks better in native, but I needed it to fit.

next time you wanna make a wallpaper, run it in 1600 x 1200 at full spec, that way, you can scale down without the quality losss :)

Indeedy, thing was, I was afraid of the whole "Bugged in higher resolutions" so I just went with standard. Didn't want voodoo troubles :p

But yeah, that's what should be done. I'll probably do it next time I see an opportunity.

Re: I'm using this as a wallpaper...
The only thing that's bugged in higher resolutions (so long as they are the standard 4:3 ratio) is the HUD is slightly blurry.  But then if you're downscaling or playing without the HUD, that's somewhat irrelivant.
who needs a signature? ;)
