Screencap Contest - April 2019
April's theme is old school. Whether your educational term wraps up this month (next month?) or not, now is as good a time as any for a throwback! Degauss your CRT monitors and have a think: what does "classic" means to you in a Freespace context? Have FUN or ELSE  :D

The rules are:

1: No HUD! (Jump nodes are ok though!)
2: Images must be presented as they would be as seen with only the FSO engine rendering the image. Remember that these entries help to show off what the engine can do for new players! So that means no after the fact photoshopping (except for cropping), and no external shader programs (reshade and the like). No lens flares, contrast shifts, colorizers, etc.
3: Max 3 entries per person!
4: Again, these screenshots are a way to promote Freespace and the FSO Engine - let's keep it in good taste.

Use the screencap script to help you take that perfect shot!

Scoreboard for this year:

Nightmare: 1
Colt: 1
MitoPL: 1

Nope. :D

I'd wonder why you hadn't questioned that there before since it's been there for a while now.  ;)

 
Re: Screencap Contest - April 2019
Because it would cost me the January win? :warp:

BTW, can't we drop the 3 entries rule?

 
Re: Screencap Contest - April 2019
Would you want people dumping the entire contents of their screenshot collections here all at once? :P

I was supposed to make a short presentation about basics of optical fibers and here I am, listening to Eurobeat while reading about quantum cryptography.

 
Re: Screencap Contest - April 2019
As long as there's no HUD I would be fine with that. :D

The Celebration of FS thread has sadly been dead for a while, so why not show of tons of screens?

 
Re: Screencap Contest - April 2019
Then why not empty your folders there, but take the best parts to here? Besides, look at this from the jury's viewpoint, how would you choose a winner out of dozens of screenshots?

Re: Screencap Contest - April 2019
Nah, I was just hoping that more screens is = more interest. :nervous:

Also, as long as there's a theme you probably won't get a deluge of entries.

April's theme is old school.

Looks like I chose the right week to "do stuff" - this month's release will be quite old school. :D



BTW, can't we drop the 3 entries rule?

It would certainly help to be able to post more entries - esspecially when the theme is quite broad.

EDIT: April Fools Prank removed.

Re: Screencap Contest - April 2019
Software renderer FTW!

Edit: To clarify, it's not FSO but vanilla FS1 and I have not even taken the screenshot myself (taken from :v:'s old webpage IIRC). So don't take it as a serious entry.

Re: Screencap Contest - April 2019
Thanks, guys - 3 screenshot rule is there for good reasons, as some mentioned above. As much as people might have lots of great ideas, realistic judging requires a limit. A flood of entries from prolific creators (unintentionally! but) sways the proportion of attention I can pay to everyone's entries.

Well well, here we go.



Pulling out from a CAS attack. If you look closely, you can see one of the still-standing tanks.

I know HUD shots are not allowed but this one just looked so cool to me that I wanted to post it regardless. Obviously not as an entry, just something I found cool.

Submission 1:

The GTC Newfoundland in the Vega-System (from Vega must burn) - The Fenris/Leviathan was the first captial ship players encountered (chronologically) and remains a popular staple.

Submission 2:

A Shivan strike wing (from Vega must burn). Some Shivan designs never go out of style :)
