New primary Load Screen? (Contest?)

Postby Ace_Azzameen_5 » Mon May 14, 2007 6:21 pm

I don't know about you, but I'm getting pretty sick of mustaphar red.

What if a contest was started for a new load screen at the start of the game, to be distributed with the Conversion pack (or in a non-mp compatibility breaking 'patch') just for a change?

The best artists and screen shotters with photoshop skills could compete in creating a load screen that signifies the conversion pack, or maybe just SWBF2, and Tean or someone else could add it and maybe a few others with which to alternate, to the pack.

What kind of interest is there for this?

Turn off any file/disk utilities and up the priority on the game and you will see the screen for slightly shorter periods of time

LOL.

That main point of this thread is not my beef with the title screen. ITs redecorating the Con Pack. :P

I would almost like it better if it wasn't a planet. What about Super_Shadowman's Wallpaper that he just posted on swbffiles?

Could you post said wallpaper?

I like the idea. I never liked that loading screen.

Something else might be better. But right now anything is better than Mustafar. :D
Here's the link to it.

What planet I always had in mind when thinking of alternate screens, is Endor. One of the pics from the movies, with the Death Star II and some rebel ships flying towards it. Something like this except I'm hoping there's a better pic that doesn't showcase any ship being really close-up.

Well we'd need BoE to do that. :P

I'll see what I can do with the shipped and the pack.

-EDIT- How about this:

@Alpha - Pretty good, but it's a bit pixelized.

@ Z13 - I like that, I think it would fit well!

Plain and simple, but I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out:

Very nice! I like that. Maybe we could modify the dots to be blue...is that possible? Maybe retheme the UI to be blue instead of red?

That would make a nice change.

Although it is space-centric....but thats the classic SW arena. (1337 editing to put some tanks back in the corner?

Also, something in their blacked out?

I think there should be a plus sign added before conversion pack, so it says:

STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT II
+ Conversion Pack


That way you don't have to redo the whole thing.

Nah, nothing's blacked out. It's just concept art. Maybe the dude got lazy in the middle of drawing it or something.

I'd prefer not to have Conversion Pack mentioned anywhere on the load screen. It bugs me for some reason when mods sortof 'take over' the title screen.

This is great Schizo keep up the great work!

As for the UI I think we should change everything since it doesnt really look that good to me at least plus a new cursor if possible

Next

Return to SWBF1 Conversion Pack
