Anyone who wants to either pre-read articles and comment on them, OR, or or or, most critically, provide (or hunt down) neat screenshots for one of the following games:

WarcraftIII
NeverwinterNights
DungeonSiege
Starcraft/Total Annihilation/Red Alert2/Age of Kings
Disciples2

AND wants to get their name in lights in a counterglow article:D, send me an email at Ned@paradise.net.nz or an ICQ on 54391074 and tell me what you want to add.

DON'T LET MIKE BE THE ONLY ONE!:D

I guess I could preread/comment/find screenshots for the NWN one. How many screenshots do you need?

Maybe even for WC3 too (no way :D ).

NWN would be great, as soon as possible, since I have that one kinda writen up already. War3 isn't urgent.

Try this for War III

http://www.wclegacy.com/sections.php?op=viewarticle&artid=2

31 pages of screenshots or something like that.

Try this page also.... at the bottom of the page there are 2 more sections like the above link from this site with something like 30 pages of linked photos as well.

Happy hunting. If I check out some more tonight, I'll post them but I doubt it. And I will be working this whole weekend so maybe next week . I have some sites for Dungeon Siege as well.

I'm happy to look over any other articles you want to send me, assuming I'm being helpful. :D

Ned can you at some point send an approx character count? might need to make some adjustments!

Shining1
12-07-2002, 08:44:08
Nav: can you split articles into two or more pages? That would be quite incredibly useful, especially for those of us who are prone to rambling on about game balance for 3 pages:D.

Nav
12-07-2002, 08:46:12
I'm working on it. That is I will be working on it and hope to get it working over the weekend.

Nav

Can you try and find good roughly equal page splits and a possibly a title for each page? would make it work better.

Shining1
12-07-2002, 08:55:22
Just give me the letter count for each page and what you want the format to be and I can work around anything you set up. I'd prefer that, in fact.

After all, we can blow up the really good screen shots to fill up half a page if it totally breaks the rhythm. I've never really likes screenshots that you have to click on to see properly. Splash screens are great, where you get say a full sized screen shot illustrating a point as page 2, and then more text and some smaller pix on page 3...

Could you be concise? ;)

Consise? It's concise.

Just picking up the slack for Noisy.

Did you edit that post before I could nitpick you..... bastard. :D

So what did you do in your control panel to not show when you edit posts?

I'm too lazy to look. :)

Funkodrom
12-07-2002, 09:02:39
If you edit posts within a minute it doesn't show the edited thing. You just have to be quick.

Mightytree

OK Ned, send me the NWN article then. I'm going to look for some screenshots in the meantime.

mightytree@bigfoot.com

Nav
12-07-2002, 09:04:38
Ned, I don't see a problem with that. Though we would still have to limit the maximum width to say 400px, so portions of a screenshot rather than the whole could be used.

OldWarrior_42
12-07-2002, 09:06:21
Quick eh..... leaves me out.
Thanks Miiiii.........um Funk. :D Quick ain't my middle name.

Some NWN screenshot sites:

Or should I make some myself?

Be careful that they aren't already copyrighted if you take them from elsewhere.

I'll write my own crappy reviews to get my name in lights thankyouverymuch.

Shining1
12-07-2002, 12:54:47
You write great reviews, you don't need any help.:p

Venom
12-07-2002, 14:13:54
Did the Venom Fan Club tell you to say that?

Shining1
12-07-2002, 14:20:53
No, I'm still gunning for a lower place on the list though:).

Venom
12-07-2002, 14:41:33
Keep it up and you just may.

Shining1
12-07-2002, 14:46:29
For joy!

For sleep??? isn't it almost 4am in NZ!!

Funkodrom

Almost 3am.

Venom

Prime posting time.

BTW, I meant Three AM I wasn't trying to write Eam in Hacksaw speak.

I can't sleep. I have venoms problem, except with no beer.

Funkodrom
12-07-2002, 14:57:57
What does Eam mean anyway? :confused:

Shining1
12-07-2002, 15:00:37
Earn?

Funkodrom
12-07-2002, 15:02:06
Earn -> Urn, it's a way of saying you're going to flame someone to death?

Shining1
12-07-2002, 15:07:43
Did they ever get around to putting the flamethrower in Q3?

Funkodrom
12-07-2002, 15:08:01
No idea I never played it.

MDA
12-07-2002, 15:17:24
So what was this thread about again?

Shining1
12-07-2002, 15:22:36
I played 2 minutes of it:).

Venom
12-07-2002, 15:24:23
What problem do I have?

Shining1
12-07-2002, 15:30:37
Not enough time to do more reviews so lame arse people who write enormous run on sentences have to do it and then everyone doesn't read them because they go WHOOOA! what a lot of writing and just read the quick news notes?

Funkodrom
12-07-2002, 15:33:56
Huh?

Venom
12-07-2002, 15:41:12
Ah yes. The old "offer to write reviews and then forget about it because you're too busy trugging through pictures for the babe contest among all the other things you have to do" syndrome.

Plus I must let my amazing creative writing skills recharge.

Shining1
12-07-2002, 15:44:21
I feel you got typecast after all those WW2 FPS games, too...

Venom
12-07-2002, 15:46:51
All 1 of them?

However, I do feel the creative juices have recharged. If I can create all the pictures for round 2 of the contest, I may have a Soldier of Fortune 2 review coming up.

Shining1
12-07-2002, 15:58:07
That would be cool:D.

Venom
12-07-2002, 17:07:09
I am cool.

If I get round to it this weekend I will try to sort out a MP game and get some screens.

So you had plenty of time off to write the review :)
