Picture Wars

Full Version: Forum Banner
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
As there's been some confusion about this, the forum banner never actually stopped accepting new people's sprites the topic just fell down to the bottom of the page.
If you want one of your units to appear on the banner all you need do is PM me the sprite I can just stick it up there for you.

That said!
There are certain rules and restrictions:

YOU ONLY GET ONE SPRITE. EVER.
Have more than one army? Tough.
Change your mind later? Tough.
Pick the unit you like best because once it's up there it's not coming down and you don't get a second go.
It's one unit per member and as it is saved as a flat image there is no way to remove them again.
This also means you might want to wait a bit more than a week after joining because you are likely to make something better and regret your decision later, but if you PM me something anyway I am just going to put it in and you will be stuck with it.

Think long and hard!

DON'T USE SOMETHING HUGE.
Nothing should be taller than Lizzrd's tallien in the back (and even he's pushing it a bit) at 40 pixels.
Also you aren't allowed to use vehicles unless that is literally the only kind of unit in your army.
It has to be some kind of infantryman or robot, and ideally something that represents your army as a whole, something iconic.

I might have missed some of your names but if you PM me asking me to put another one on for you I'll almost certainly notice then ;)

YOU ADDED MY NAME TO THE LIST BUT MY SPRITE ISN'T THERE!!!
Press ctrl f5 to force refresh, 99% of the time this is because your browser is loading an old, cached version of the image.

Why do you have 2!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!??!??!?!?!??!!?

same reason lizzrd and a few others also have 2, because that banner allowed it
I actually only had one until I was ordered by a couple of people to put goblins in it
Then I ended up with three because someone stuck all those greyscaled old sprites in the background that had older goblins on (I would have had four but the newer sprites obscure my very very first army)

Lizzrd has two because nobody noticed he'd put them in until it was too late ;)

Thanks for bumping the topic though, someone PMed me a version where they'd edited their sprite into an old version and thus removed several people and I didn't notice until I'd uploaded it, and I'd forgotten to fix it yet so I'll get on that
hihi ;)
Er, you're not actually still updating this cluttered thing, right? Since if you are, I just might have something to contribute. Understandable if not though, as we did agree that we would be changing the system...
Well, I also could throw something in. Damn, two years and a half passed until last post, maybe we should renew banner anyway?
As far as I know Metal is actually working on renewing it. Sit tight.
Weren't we all going to have some dynamic banner that changed every refresh so that we could show off our armies in greater glory than just one sprite? At least I think that's what we were going to do. Don't really remember.

Still it'll probably take a bit of time till we can get new banners, unless some of you have been working away in the background on it, so may I place down one sprite too before it disappears?
We were going to make a fancy rotating banner where everyone's army would have a lot more space. I don't think Jacquerel ever finished the forum changes he needed to make to get us started.
I didn't no.
I will... eventually.
Just make a banner that's actually a really long gif of everyone's armies having a massive battle.
As cool as that sounds it'd be a pain to animate all our armies and newcomers wouldn't be able to easily put their sprites in the gif, without adding them in to every relevant frame. More work than is worth it.

Still wouldn't mind seeing someone with a sig like that.
Not to mention GIFs have somewhat larger filesizes than most and a GIF of something that large may cause stammers and image freezes on slower tinternets.

I actually quite like this idea. You could have a generic "PICTURE WARS" font bit, and each person can make their own banner with their own units and it would switch between them.
This is literally what people are planning to do for a long time.
To be fair it's been so long since I said I was going to do that, people can't be blamed for forgetting.
