Well the deal was, I (unfairly) assumed anyone around here who could show me up was too busy (like, malice).

I will tell you, about 6 people have contacted me about it already. I havn't heard much though.

My problem is, I can't blend, shade, and smooth images together, and create backgrounds with effects, and I'd (like) something as good as the example sites (impressive, no?)

k.. i get you..
so nvm about my try...
Or.

You touch up your try. Or you start over after a few quick minutes of brainstorming a new layout.

You make something AMAZING.

You shove the fact that someone OTHER then anyone he wanted made such a GREAT peice of artwork in Ryoko's face ;)

He uses it.
You smile.
The world is happy once again.

I'd prefer the alternative ;)

You mean, like layers? Yeah, that'd be a good idea.

my attempt:

I've tried skinning, was okay at my first one, 4.5/5 then it got deleted for breaking rules which i never saw on the rules page.

Anyway, got a template of a button and a background, my first attempt so hope you like it:

hey krakka and jindo how did u do those. To me they look rely great. Did you free-hand, or take a pic from WE/WC3 and copy paste?

jindo, you suck at rendering..
eheheh
you cut off the sorceress' staff orb.
When you say you skinned it, do you mean you use photoshop!?! or another program, if so which 1?

Did you look at the link in Ryoko's original post? All the images are from there.

I think I'll try to make something from this. Give me some time, I should have a rough idea later tonight.

OK, I have Photoshop in front of me, and I'm starting to try some stuff out. A few things, though:

My idea uses the Gryphon Rider image, and just extends the theme, so it'll be using the same kinds of colors as the gryphon rider is (sort of sunset-lit colors). Problem with that is that graytex.jpg doesn't fit into it at all (why do you want that image, anyway? To hide the black error text? :p)

What's the minimum header width you want?

How strictly should I follow that little green and black diagram?

what will be wierd is that if its all orange (well themed orange), it will not fit the black web page..
but just keep trying.. i wanna see!
graytext.jpg?

Yeesh, man, I just said that it wouldn't fit into a black page, which is what he requested (he wanted the background to be graytex.jpg—go to the tutorial site and type /images/graytex.jpg to see it. It's a black box. Making that the background gives you a black background). If the site didn't have to be black, it would work fine. After all, he said he wants a skin for the site, not a header.

Edit: I made a rough version of a header. It's very much open for alterations. Also, I arbitrarily chose a length (400 pixels). If there isn't space for all 400 pixels down (and I doubt there will be) I can easily cut it all the way down to 250 pixels without really losing anything.

    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
  • Varine Varine:
    Didn't the backwards compatability have issues too?
  • Accname Accname:
    I never had any hopes for that. Blizzard is not the same company it was 10 years ago.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It happens in corporations. They just absorb the companies they buy and it is not about the love of making awesome games it is how much money can we make with the least amount of cost.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Blizzard is watered down now hopefully they can pull it together
  • The Helper The Helper:
    they got a server engineer job opening :)
