With the construction of the new Gameroom Assembly Yard it allows players to prepare for their games much easier, a part of that process could be:

-Making Signatures to advertise your game
-Getting graphics required for your game (such as maps)
-Getting banners, pictures or other graphics, which you can then use in your game

If game hosts would like any of these things, ask here and myself or any other volunteers will hopefully create what your looking for. :thumbsup:


P.S. This was a good idea from Sigurd, credit goes to him. :bow:

For Ibn-Khaldun's WW1 Game:

With Blood Effect

Old Photo Version

Are these ok Ibn? This would be the 'general' version, It's better to do a general game version before individual versions I think.

So, I'll use that! :2thumbsup:

Nothing in particular just lots of time pieces and maybe some form of time travel device.

I made several Versions, including an animated one (which would have looked good, but my animation plugin in GIMP was bugging out big time...) Overall, I feel the best one is this, I hope its ok:

I need something sober (black and white or sephia would be cool).

A man with a long, black cloak, walking in a narrow street (medieval or 19th century-ish (think Jack the Ripper)) and holding a shining silver dagger in his hand. It needs a dark atmosphere and the text "The daggers are hunting", preferably in silver letters.

:bow:

Is there a free "GIMP for dummies" manual, somewhere on the internet?

Sounds challenging, in a good way.


As for tutorials you may look to the TWC, or the internet. i think the best method of learning with GIMP is by simply using it and trying different things.

some are photoshop, some are GIMP, some of the artists there have epic skills, I just set this up as a solution for orgahs.

Thermal, that second one looks like they are dancing in a line, and just missing the spotlight and cane to tip it all off.

The lighting on the guy is a bit random for a back alley but at least he stands out :grin:

I agree Beskar :smiley: I get the feeling he wasn't looking for that kind of effect but its there just in case. :tongue:

But it's "daggers", not "dangers".

About time I got round to redoing andres, I nearly spelt it wrong again.... :laugh4:

It was just as much hassle to start again, so I went for this instead:

https://i404.photobucket.com/albums/pp130/aries777777/DAGGERS4.png

I thought it was a bit darker than the other, which had bad lighting on the cloaked guy, the actual ripper guy isn't as sharp as I'd like him to be, but he blends in with the darkness I guess. :tongue:

I'd like to request a banner for my upcoming game, All Those Pretty Stars.

Using this (http://ogameblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/Ogame-Wallpaper.jpg) image, in a sci-fi style font, I'd like it to say "All Those Pretty Stars - A Mafia/RPG Hybrid" and "Will you survive?"

Thank you in advance. :bow:

Could one of you make me a simple graphic for my upcoming "The Spider's Web" mafia? The game will be based around a detective agency infiltrated by scum. I want to use the below pic as the basis for the graphic, maybe with a spiders web in one of the corners.

Ideally I'd like some sort of foggy/dungeony image with "ye olde worlde" style text over it.
