The HWBP fan screenshot contest
Hello my loyal fans ! Today officially begins the HWBP fan screenshot contest !

The rules are simple. Play HWBP, take cool screenshots, post them. The poster of the best screenshot wins eternal fame by getting a place in HWBP's soon-to-come bonus boss wave (with the ship, loadout, name and description of your choice) !

If there is enough participation, there may be several nominees and/or different prizes.

Anyone can post as many screenshots as they wish.

Keep in mind that you can pause the game at any time (default Pause key), move around the camera the way you want (Alt+click to focus on a ship, mouse wheel to zoom in/out, right and left click for finer zooming, arrow keys to move the camera on the horizontal plan, page up/down for moving vertically), and remove the UI (backspace) for better screenshots !

The game features a built-in screenshot system with the Scroll lock key, that prints screenshots in the Homeworld2/Bin/Screenshots folder in JPG format. You can of course also use FRAPS or other softs if you want higher-quality PNG screenshots.

Enough talking. Hope you'll have fun !

Let's kick this off:






Ugh, Photobucket really does like to downsize my pictures. Let me know if you want the originals Matth.

Generic Solaris with some not so generic missile trails.


For some reason the green lights in the hangar bay remind me of some sort of demonic creature. It looks better at full res, but photobucket is kind of eh.

Re: The HWBP fan screenshot contest
I kinda assumed that this build in screenshot function would remove the ui on its own. As build in screenshot functions on more recent games do for you. So much for that!


"pew pew and dakka dakka"


"O**** o****, its the narayana hit squad!"


"ZERG THEM, RUSH THEM MY FRIENDS! FOR THE OVERMIND!"


"KEKEKE-"


"OH ****, ITS RAYNOR ON HIS OVER GROWN VULTURE BIKE!"




"DE, *****."

Anyway, I made it to wave 20 but the ships of the previous 3 wave were still in the field too. Next wave starts way too fast making it absolutely impossible to get any farther in the gauntlet due to the ship limit you are bound to. It just becomes a matter of abusing the dumb ai with repeated jumps and having a single decoy, while you thrust your mighty raynor dick up their arses.

It looked like this most of the time. Impossible to call in anything new, they'll get destroyed instantly on spawn.
Urutorahappī!!

Re: The HWBP fan screenshot contest
You're kinda supposed to not be able to win. Also, the script stops spawning waves every 5 waves, the fifth wave suposedly being a boss wave (I only have one wave type right now with all available ships for testing purposes).

Wave 20. Impressive. I usually end up around wave 10-ish. I need to toy more with, or nerf, in-field subspace I think.

Why do you think I told you how to remove the UI for screenshots, not only on the first post, but even directly on IRC...

Re: The HWBP fan screenshot contest
Is there actually an end wave or does the script just keep on spawning?

HWAT?!
To consider the Earth as the only populated world in infinite space is as absurd as to assert that in an entire field of millet, only one grain will grow. - Metrodorus of Chios
I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta
