just a question can the banner have moving caponents? and what should i make it on have photoshop cs2 and paint, its a tough choice.
so this is for lxa not for my clan right?
ill try my best

PS just learning photoshop and image ready so it may suck ::)

You can make two with slightly different colours if you want. Its also ok to just have one banner that fits both.

You may use moving parts, meow, but make sure the file doesn't become too big (about 50KB max). You are totally free to design it in any program you like.

Post by: Some Random Ock on February 18, 2006, 09:10:41 am
so this is for LXA right?

is it supposed to be... ummm, how should i put this..... "formal"?
by formal i mean is it going to be used as a flyer and not a signature?

so, can i have evil looking things or is it supposed to be impassive?
borders or not?

im kinda lost as to what im aiming for... ???


Title: Re: Battlecry LXA clanbase banner contest!
Post by: Quake on February 18, 2006, 08:02:18 pm
I will make one cause I was asked to when I was busy and now I'm not.

Azriath Should enter this contest. He REALLY Should enter this contest. I will enter, I suck but I will enter it. :) Just to see what shit I can create.

I have finished my LXA banner. It's pretty wicked. It's not animated but shouldn't you warn people not to make an animated one?


Title: Re: Battlecry LXA clanbase banner contest!
Post by: >--Faisal--> on February 18, 2006, 09:04:46 pm
I do not get what this contest is about! i am hypothosizeing that it is something to do with the banner on top (http://img139.imageshack.us/my.php?image=untitled3wm.jpg)


Title: Re: Battlecry LXA clanbase banner contest!
Post by: Azriath on February 18, 2006, 09:27:46 pm
Alright, I'm in, I just don;t get what I have to do :P 8) ::)


Title: Re: Battlecry LXA clanbase banner contest!
Post by: Spectro on February 18, 2006, 09:35:34 pm
Here's what everything's about: There will be a new feature of LXA that will be a ladder system. A ladder system is used to record and analyse clan records and organize challenges. RuN will release a thread explaining it upon the release date, but this is just summarizing it.

So what RuN basically wants is a nice banner for the clanbase to add to the overall graphic appeal :)


Btw mines almost ready to post, just have to work out some fine details =]

Post by: RuNyoufool on February 18, 2006, 09:41:13 pm
Btw mines almost ready to post, just have to work out some fine details =]

Greast spec, looking forward to see it.

It may look evil, battlefield sounds good. Or evil worms. Or pinkish worms. I don' t care. A border might be a good idea, since that will make it easier to place it in different themes. Also animation is cool. As long as the file doesn't get huge (<50KB)

Does this help? Good luck everyone.

Post by: Luzo on February 18, 2006, 11:07:29 pm
Hehe, hello everyone. I just couldn't resist participating in this contest :)
I have some questions:
1) Are we going to make 2 banners, one light and one dark?
2) Those images you posted? Do we have to use them as our background kind of thing?
3) May it be animated?
4) We may submit as many banner as we want?

Cheers, Luzo.


Title: Re: Battlecry LXA clanbase banner contest!
Post by: Quake on February 18, 2006, 11:32:45 pm
Luzo. if you looked up above I asked if it could be animated. He said you can make two banners if you like, they just both have to match the light and dark theme. The images he posted are just showing that the banners have to match those colors.

Title: Re: Battlecry LXA clanbase banner contest!
Post by: Krazi on February 19, 2006, 03:23:49 am
Ya basically Spectrum just won lol...

jk... but I don't think i'm even trying after that haha, Others might be able to though...


Title: Re: Battlecry LXA clanbase banner contest!
Post by: tmYn on February 19, 2006, 03:29:46 am
just a little reminder to all of u..
if you read the rules really well u would notice something with spectros banner
dont worry all of u, just make banners :) maybe the people like it even tho spectro is very good ::)


its way to big :P dunno how run think it fits but in the rules it says:



the word 'Battlecry' should have a prominent place
the words 'LXA clanbase' should be somewhere in it (small font-size is ok)
the size has to be between 500*80 and 650*110 pixels
it should fit both the light and the dark theme of LXA
don't rip designs made by other people, try to be original!
Participants will be listed in this topic, with their submitted banners.
Don't submit banners if you are not sure if they are ready yet!
LXA members will be able to vote, and one of the top 3 banners will be chosen.
You are off course allowed to submit more then one banner.


Title: Re: Battlecry LXA clanbase banner contest!
Post by: Exigo on February 19, 2006, 03:30:16 am
Same, i was gona try, then i saw them 2 banners and.. wtf... guess i wont.

Post by: Spectro on February 19, 2006, 08:19:26 am
the size has to be between 500*80 and 650*110 pixels

RuN told me it wasn't a big deal to make it a lil larger, so I went ahead and followed through like that. Thanks for keeping a fine eye on the details tho ;)


Title: Re: Battlecry LXA clanbase banner contest!
Post by: RuNyoufool on February 19, 2006, 11:01:44 am
Since spec was well on his way when he discovered that the templates i provided were not the real target size for the banner, i made an exception for him.

That worm looks totally awesome. I almost can't believe you designed that yourself. It's also very nice to have one for both themes, it will be easy to make more if ever we switch themes again.

I still hope we will get more banners, and remember, the top 3 banners after voting might be used for BC. It is also possible that we use parts of banners elsewhere on the site, if you give us permission.

nice banner, Ock, it seems that i'd better not put those images there.. Anyway, if your's win we might have to resize it a bit, if needed.

Anyone thought of making a worms bloodbath? Might be a nice theme for a system that registers clanwars

as far as dark them banners go so far, i think specs got it in the bag....

Never EVER get discouraged by a higher standard. That's just  like leaving a game when you know your opponent will win. You really never know what can happen. Just take the challenge and get better, that's all anybody can ask.


Great work fellas, I like the ideas behind all your banners. Im surprised at Ocky tho. Dude, I know you can slap some of your own awsome freehand work into this competition. I mean you're awsome at blood, just figure out how to use a mouse instead of a pencil and you're fullproof =]

Think harder Faisal!

On the top menu click, Image. From this drops down a sub-menu. From the sub-menu click Selection. This brings up yet another submenu. Finally click shrink.

Basically all these first steps are doing, is making a single pixle boarder. They do this by making a new color filled layer then shrinking it so 1 pixel is evident around it. This 1 pixel of empty shrunken space acts like a boarder by diplaying the layer underneath of it in that 1 pixel boardering area. Hope that makes more sence.  :)

Ok, if it stinks and you don't care, just don't post it. If you are just uncertain, you can ask others how to improve it before posting it here.

Simple, stylish and red to fit the theme.

i actully thought bout that, dude. thanks for bringing tht up, cuz i dont want everybody to bias LXA on mortar players ("n00bs! im a rifler and i say ur a n00basaur" and that is in fact a quote from an angry rifleman)

yah, i dont wann make it seem like LXA favors one mod over nother though, i just made this cuz, and this is a fact like it or not, most people like and play mortrs over rifles. srry to say, dudes. but thats a whole other issue. if u wanna debate this simple piece of life, go to the thread about it.
http://lxalliance.net/smf/index.php?topic=22.0
 and if anyone wants a banner like this for rifles.... MAKE IT YOURSELF!! HEHE ;D

okay, i know it is too big and i would rather have this be put somewhere where it looks nice, not just at the top of the battlecry forums or whtever (if it wins *crosses fingers*)

i think magus' would look the best ner the top of the battlecry page but meh, im not making the page so i dont know how it looks yet :P

welll............ :-\


about 3 hours ago (this poll has been up for about 4 days or so, right...?) i was in the lead with 5. all the others were at 2 or less. seeing as how there have only been a handful of votes within 4 days and all of a sudden out of nowhere 4 votes (most to spec  :D) show up... it makes me wonder if someone might be up to something.... :( .now im behind in votes by 1. and i checked out one of the latest members (Geobot) which were only active for NO minutes and have 0, count em, 0 posts and no karma. never logged on either. but lets see... check thier statistics and we find!!!! OH MY! he has one vote... but he only joined today.... wouldnt you think that a new member would say hi, or post somewhere else or even comment on a vote or something? i believe thats what normally happens. there are some more IM VERY SURE, but it would take too long to go find them. run has all the specs on members, maybe he could shed some light on this whole situation and tell me to shutup and quit whining. :-[


but o well. i can cry if im getting cheated all day and have nothing done about it, really. i mean, theres no real proof anyone is cheating, is there? i mean, other than the suspicion that new members with one vote and no minutes login time, not to mention a VERY LARGE REWARD in credits for this contest... i mean, it doesnt sound a little bit fishy to you?

i dunno, maybe im just being a little ***** about it..... :(

Hi, I\'m Spectro\'s friend. Sorry for the crazy generic name, it was the first thing that came to mind in a position like this.

So down to business. I\'ve done alot of design work with Spectro in the past. After he showed me that amazing banner for this competition, there was no way I could just not get invlolved. I mean honestly, Some Random Ock, your banner looks fine for a personal signiture or somthing that represents just you, but it certainly lacks the professional cut that Spectro\'s banner presents. That\'s not meant as a put down keep in mind. I think movement and animation has its place, but not for the heading of a site destined to get many many hits by many different types of people.

Anyhow, if you think it was unfair for an outsider to come and give their own proffessional opinion, then so be it. I will withdraw my vote if nessesary


Cheers.


Title: Re: Battlecry LXA clanbase banner contest!
Post by: Spectro on February 28, 2006, 06:22:15 am
Thanks Greg :D

Sorry for all the misunderstanding Ocky. I never actually asked him to vote, I just linked him to the banner cause I was pretty proud of it at the time, and then came questions about it and I guess that's how he learned about the competition. I probably would have gotten a little suspicious if that happened to me too, so don't bring it down on yourself.

@G(What's with all the slashes?)

Post by: Some Random Ock on February 28, 2006, 06:31:17 am
nah, thats cool, im just being paranoid :D
but you see, it just seemed kinda fishy that random members showed up with no affiliation to LXA or any personal info filled out whatsoever. the first thing i thought up was "ploy" because the profile looked bogus. just seemed to me like people were putting more than one vote in. and the real reason that was the first thing that came to mind was that... well... if i was going to cheat in a vote thats what i would do :D
(what a wierdo i am, huh? ill stop being an ass now) :P

as i said, i dont want any of my stuff at the top, maybe like a cool lil sum-sumpin at the bottom or something. Spec's is very nice and i think that it is better than mine, so why not? hehe

well, ill come up with something.... something else......

hehe, until then

The rules and outlines stated we were supposed to make a banner that fits both the light and dark skin types. I think I was the only one to do this, though.

And being judgmental definitly has nothing to do with this. I know for a fact (not a judgement) that when all these fellows show up with no posts and one vote, that somthing's going on. Don't make this into a fued.

The voting is closed. One of the 3 first banners will be chosen to be integrated in BC. Global moderaters that haven't been active in this competition will decide. Participants can read here which one we'd like to use, probably within 2 days.

Thanks everyone for putting time in this, BC will be released soon!

I actually like Magus' the best so far for a few reasons. I could make up a skin to fit his blood/gore theme with the help of azzy's ingenious borders. And as Faisal said, we could just stick my worm into Magus' design and have a wonderful theme ready for BC. Just a few minor design adjustments and I think the three of us could pull somthing much nicer together!

So whatchall say to that?

ok, i have sat back and realaxed for about 2-3 weeks already. WTF happend to this idea. It was an amazing idea. since Magus just quit, maybe its up to Azzy and Spectro.

yep, im still waiting for the product of the 3 of you.. how's it coming along?

Sorry it's coming so slow. I just need a night to sit down and work an honest night with it. Alot of things have gotten in the way working on a few client's sites and  my dad threatening to take my computer away (again) because he expected me to install Microsoft Office. Don't ask how that gets laid on me... his logic never makes sence to me either :)

I'll do what I can to put somthing together this weekend.

With or without text blood? Personally I think the blood makes it a little too busy, but I wanted others' input first.

Actually, i like em both spectro, good job! I think i prefer the one with the blood, it doesn't distract too much i think.

and went without the non blood one

Double-negative frenzy there =P
So... I'm assuming that meant you like the bloody one?

Quote from: Faisal
now did you send it Azzy so he can do his part in just adding the bordars?

I haven't caught Chris online for awhile, but overall I think the boarder will make it too busy. If everyone still wants to see what it looks like with a border, I'll just get Asrack to force his brother online for awhile :)

The one without blood looks professional although the one with blood seems much more action packed and inviting. People will be interested in joining. :] I know I didn't put much together. Oh well. Sorry fellas. Looks awesome though spec. Azzy, you should add LXA in your tech border somewhere.

Azzy had a plan to do that anyhow as it looks :)


So here's where we're at for the banner blood:
4 in favor of blood
0 in favor of plain

Its safe to say blood has the popular vote, so I'll just make sure Azzt uses that one for the border.

I like the one where is blood better. The other one is somehow too empty and the blood covers it up pretty nicely.
Good job Spectro!

As it is now, i think the blood one is definitely better. with the borders added  it might be too much though. Gotta see that first.

only, beef i have with the bloody one, is the blood that comming out of the woms rifle. that part doesnt look professional. but if that can be altered then i am with the bloody one. but for now, i will go for the non-bloody one.

How would you want it changed?

Less blood, different placment, different dripping pattern, or maybe no blood on the uzi at all?

Nice. Mabye make the tech boarder look more like metal.
If you can... It looks good though I would give it a 10/10. I like how the word LXA CLanbase is underlined.
If you could give the graident more of a metal look I would give it a 20/10


Title: Re: Battlecry LXA clanbase banner contest!
Post by: Quake on April 16, 2006, 02:38:59 am
Hmm..
I kind of like it like the rusted kind of metal look.
he could make a metal one and then compare them and see what ppl think like what spectro did with the blood.


Title: Re: Battlecry LXA clanbase banner contest!
Post by: Asrack on April 16, 2006, 02:41:30 am
Hes prob already started on it. :p

Yeah I guess he ould do that. I hope he does.
Although since the background is red, he could have gone with a more redish tint to the metel.
I do like how it looks like its burnt in places. Instead of making it all tech like you could have added a few small bullet holes along with the Techness :p

you dont have to change it, in just regard of me, but I personally dont like the blood on the rifle, it just makes it seem that, the rifle just went through another worm, stabed it. and it seems like, every "THing" is dripping with blood. I like the blood on the warm, and the lettering that is all, but im not to fond of the blood dripping off, the riflle, it makes the rifle look like its a spray gun, that shoots blood or something. But you shouldnt just change it just for me, im pretty sure there are others that like the dripping of the blood from the rifle. but i will look very nice as a banner.

By the way "SICK BORDER"


Title: Re: Battlecry LXA clanbase banner contest!
Post by: Quake on April 16, 2006, 02:47:24 am
A redish tint on teh border would make it look mayeb too red. I tihnk the blood on teh gun is fine. Aweosme actually.
And mayeb when teh border is at maximum satisfaction, spec could add soem blood inside of the grooves of teh border? :P

Title: Re: Battlecry LXA clanbase banner contest!
Post by: >--Faisal--> on April 16, 2006, 03:12:58 am
Adding blood on the borders, wont make any difference, cause the borders grills, the holes are very small, if you put just alilitle it wont make it difference. i also think, you should make the "LXA", bloody, if you want.

Well it doesn't fit to my eye in this one tho.
But this one has the best tech border you've made.
But wooden border would look nice if it would be 'just' made for it. Not just copied or something. I'll open Photoshop and try to show you ::)

Pfft. Tech border reminds me of artillery. A wooden border would be stupid. No matter what teh tint. When you think of battle, do you really think of wood? :/

The tech pwnz. Its not changing... That wooden one is pathetic.

And no. Azzy put alot fo work in taht tech border. Its not going to be thrown away for some wooden one. I am defensive about this. It pisses me off.

Post by: >--Faisal--> on April 16, 2006, 09:04:40 pm
we, all forgot that, the woden one wont be an option, since we already know that Azzy, Magus, and spectro's idea are going to be combined into one and choosen. Since Spectro, Azzy and Magus are tied, they get to choose which one will be posted up. Deflies is too late, to be considered into the draw.

    [*] The boarder is ok, but is not fitting for the banner. Sorry D-Flies, it didn't work out to what I expected.
    [*] The wooden boarder would look good if it was not chipped up, and was smaller, placed well, and looked more like wood.
    [*] You don't have to be so mean to D-Flies, I mean he was just trying to prove that yeah, it would look good, or fine with the wooden boarder, it didn't turn out right, but I still believe that it would turn out ok if it was done right.

Well the pattern fill didn't work very well there so you cant really see the 'wood' except the color and if you zoom teh image.
I still like my own more than your tech border which is very boring since you always put it everywhere..Maybe you should practise more of borders? You don't need a fancy border always tho.

I think this one fits better to the red colour and it looks more professional.
Maybe u could do the "blood thing" with more carefully.


Azriaths:
http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/7038/lxabannercopy5zm.png

This one looks quite boring..(I hate metallic  ;D)
The colour is to dark in my opinion..
But it looks quite professional.


Just a qustion to both of you:
How much time did you spend on your banner?


Title: Re: Battlecry LXA clanbase banner contest!
Post by: Dflies on April 17, 2006, 01:44:59 pm
30-40 minutes.
Well, that border isn't my job tho..So whatever I make to it, doesn't matter. Since Azriath, Spectro, and err dont remember last one =P are making this banner, not me O.O


Title: Re: Battlecry LXA clanbase banner contest!
Post by: RuNyoufool on April 17, 2006, 08:03:49 pm
ok everyone. The decision is made, someone already mentioned it in this topic. Azriath is making the border. And he spend a lot of time on doing so, so a bit of respect would be nice. Also, DFlies, its good to give some input, but at the end, it's Azriath that creates the border. So better comment on how he could improve his border, not making a new one.

I think Azriaths looks professional. DFlies' doesn't look too bad either, but it won't be used.

Please treat others with a bit more respect, goes for everyone.
