Screenshots Contest?
 
With the game contest deadline nearly here and only one submission in, I figured something simpler and easier to create might be more successful. So, how about a screenshot contest? It could be funny, epic, mysterious, chaotic, whatever, so long as it's age appropriate. Screenshots are easy to make (capture button in the upper-right corner of the play window) and easy to post as well, so this one should have a much higher participation rate.

What do you guys think?

arty-fishL 06-29-2010 01:58 PM

good idea
 
Good idea, cos my competition world went corrupt and nobody else is ready, Im sure everybody could come up with loads of screenshots.
How many times could you enter?

I was thinking about that. On the one hand, I'd love to have a whole bunch of entries, but on the other hand, I don't want someone who has lots of time or has more knowledge of Alice shotgunning the contest with entries and making it easier for them to win by sheer volume.

Meh, how does three per person sound?

By the way, I made one as an example. Took me about 20 minutes or so to get it just right. I call it "A bad day to be ballooning."

Sounds Fun.
Heres my entry:

arty-fishL 06-29-2010 03:22 PM

3 sounds about good, it means I can enter 3 different genres of image. Also you're right, there shouldnt be too much competetion then.

I like the images so far, quite funny, well done:D

x2495iiii 06-29-2010 03:52 PM

Guess this is also the submission thread. That's cool.

Nice entry, zarfang. Got a title for it?

arty-fishL 06-29-2010 05:04 PM

Question
 
Are you allowed to edit the pictures in any way?

x2495iiii 06-29-2010 11:53 PM

No, because then it wouldn't be a screenshot. It needs to be an active shot of a an Alice world.

Maybe just to make sure it's genuine, you should post the world you used to make the shot as well?

Ive deleted my world, cos the picture was the finished product, didnt need the rest.

Also I used a print screen program called PrtScr as it creates better images, is that OK?

First, arty's question: yes, that's fine. And I guess having the original world isn't a necessity if the shot looks like it was obviously done with Alice, but from now on, have it ready in case legitimacy is challenged.

Deadline: Dunno yet. Obviously 4 months was way too long for the last one, so since this one's easier, how about end of July?

Judge: I had a judge set up for the games contest and provided he's still willing he and I could possibly do it (I won't be entering this one, my shot was just an example).

Based on: Anything, be creative. Just no grody stuff.

1] Ok, I lied, THIS really is my last post.

2] Since you posted your balooning screenshot i just assumed this was the submission thread.

3] I'm not sure what to call it, Hungry Penguins, maybe?

x2495iiii 07-12-2010 04:03 PM

Anyone else going to enter? This one's easy guys, all you need is an idea and half an hour's time.

King Gamer(gorit) 07-12-2010 06:06 PM

I'll enter. Once I finish my model of a broken misile launch site. I am curently texturing. Then I will add in some custom trees. Make some cool atmosphere with a guy exchanging a suitcas nuke and... Wait should I be saying this. I hope no one steals my idea. No seriously I aam working on this for an actual game I intend to sell so yeah It should be good.

room14 07-12-2010 08:10 PM

Can i enter too?

zonedabone 07-13-2010 12:53 PM

Can we do animated images? As in recording a video and converting to GIF?

here's an animated one. It plays faster on the second go-through.

I have yet to get a .gif to work on the boards (despite the fact that it says they're enabled), so that might also be it.

gifs don't work? Was it animated? Can you just convert it to a jpeg or png?

zonedabone 07-15-2010 04:12 PM

It was up there and working when I checked it. Now it doesn't show up in the post anymore.:(

Looks like it may be a problem with the link.

x2495iiii 07-15-2010 10:58 PM

I tried using a very small animated gif as my avatar for a while and it didn't work.

jediaction 07-16-2010 09:53 AM

Ok, so i jsut saw this thread, but i cant upload images, they always show up as and X. I have one a made a long time ago but i will post it

[QUOTE=x2495iiii;23157]I tried using a very small animated gif as my avatar for a while and it didn't work.[/QUOTE]

I think in most instances animated gifs are disabled. While they can be tasteful, most are not. And based on what I see on other forums, the fewer flashing things the better. :)

King Gamer(gorit) 07-17-2010 01:19 AM

True, there was some avatars that I thought would give me a seizure.

jediaction 07-18-2010 08:56 AM

[QUOTE=King Gamer(gorit);23203]True, there was some avatars that I thought would give me a seizure.[/QUOTE]

I like simple ones, like my jediaction, thats what everyone thinks i look like just because thats what everyones seen. Just like X2495iiii looks like a penguin "not really". Im just saying, we recognize everyone by there avatar.

King Gamer(gorit) 07-18-2010 11:12 AM

True I recognized them by it but I still thought it was there to give me a seivure.

jediaction 07-18-2010 01:29 PM
