    Looks like the dds ratio is 256x256, but it seems they also do some sort of craziness with pink and an overlay. No idea, images arent my thing.



    EDIT: Looks like it can go bigger to 512x512, though. This is the biggest one I see:

    Aren't those the game scene switch screens rather than start scene? I assumed the contest was for the latter.

    EDIT: This is what the game scene load screen texture looks like currently for vanilla SWGEmu:


    So yeah, you're gonna need to have the borders around the main background, unless you want to completely revamp the loadscreen ui (which I don't think is in the contest's scope...)

    I am now confused... I did my design intended for the main loading screen when you first login to SWG, not the planetary/city/softlog loading screens. I can redesign and resize my dds for either style, I just need to know which one.

    The pink craziness is the transparency used for a clear or see-through map ingame. Could even be a layer mask or an alpha. Notice how the image blends into the texture and makes it look more bevelled?

    So, once this comes out, and it's all said and done. Then what? What is the next step after publish 9? There can't be much left to do... Right?
    How close are we to an official live server?

    We are far from done. We are in alpha testing. When everything for the ground game has been implemented, we will move over to beta testing. Thats when we will start to see coding towards space and all the work with tweaking what we currently have, since we still arent at 14.1 on many things.

    I see. Would that be far from done until we reach beta, or far from done until jump to light speed and the tweaking is implemented? The game feels very complete right now. The work by all the developers is appreciated by many, myself included.
    However, If we are far from done until we reach the beta stages of the project, then I must say that is disappointing. Especially with over a decade of development. (Pushing 15 years?)

    Our current Team has only been together for about 4 or 5 years.

    But regardless, volunteer-project is volunteer-project... rl freetime is rl freetime ... soon is soon ...and _________ other cliche's.

    Your best bet, imo, is to just stay in the *moment* and pay very close attention to these...

    In addition to the vacuum created from the loss of an entire planet, the rebel assault on the Death Star only extended the damage.
    An attempt to fill the void began as The Force reacted by gathering around living beings throughout the galaxy.
    Many experienced events not thought possible before.
    However, these were ignored by most as the empire began to interrogate those who showed even the slightest sign of interest.
    Some, albeit only rumored, claimed to have learned how to harness the energy that caused these events and even referred to themselves as Force Sensitive.
    This was never confirmed to be true and reports ceased almost as quickly as they arose.

    It is said that those most sympathetic were responsible for the recent attack on the Death Star.
    The only evidence supporting that claim is that Lord Vader has launched an investigation on Yavin IV where many had fled to.
    Yet it seems nothing has turned up on the planet that staged the assault as the investigation is still ongoing.



    -I'll be adjusting the photo to proper dimensions and setting soon.
    this is as close as i've gotten so far.

    Thankful much? Most of the code was scrapped back in 2010 when the O.R took place. The project has come a long way since then and we're getting closer every week.
