Screenshots Competition

Since our screenshot on the homepage does not have the required aspect ratio for App Stores and nobody has the savegame any more, a screenshot competition to replace it should be a fun way to pass the time while we wait for the bugs for Build 20 to be fixed. This is how you can enter the competition:

  1. Get a current development version of Widelands. Savegames from Build 19 can't be accepted due to incompatibility.
  2. Create a fogless game that looks pretty. LAN mode will be best, because this way you can switch players to control what everybody's building
  3. Take a screenshot of the scene that you want, using Ctrl+F11. See the Technical FAQ on where to find the file.
  4. The screenshot should have a 16:9 aspect ratio, and should have a width that is no smaller than 620px. For more information on the format and further guidelines, visit freedesktop.org and search the page for screenshots/.
  5. Upload you screenshot and the savegame to our bug on Launchpad, and suggest a title for it. If you do not wish to register on Launchpad, you can also contact GunChleoc for an e-mail address to send your screenshot and savegame to, and she'll upload it to the bug for you.

All screenshots that are of sufficient quality will be published in our Screenshots section on the homepage. We will then pick one for the homepage when we release Build 20.

Yeah! Very good!

But what are the timeframes? How long will you wait? I expect that you don't know exactly, but maybe you know approximate time? Month? Two? face-smile.png

The deadline will be ca. 1 week after we publish the release candidate. That will probably still take a while, because there are still bugs to fix. You can contribute as many screenshots as you want.

I forgot another rule: Unless you want to show off the zoom feature, it's best to take the screenshots at 1:1 zoom. Graphical quality isn't the same when zooming yet - that's something that we're hopefully have for Build 21 (already WiP).

The first 3 screenshots are up! https://wl.widelands.org/screenshots/

I had to crop one of them a bit due to file size.

The Romans one. I don't want to increase the compression rate, because the quality then looks crap. Seems like 1280x720 is the highest that we can do reasonably.

You can look at the link of the bug report and see there who made the screenshots.
