BZFlag Wikipedia Image

Post by that exploding tank » Fri Oct 20, 2006 12:39 am

I know this may sound stupid :roll: , but I believe that the image for BZFlag on the Wikipedia article is a bit outdated. It's from version 2.0.

Here is the Wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BZFlag

Now, since I got yelled at for all my pictures being in low quality, I've managed to update Two Castles, Mofo, and Badgerking. They have been updated in this post. (note: The LaserMania and Overlord pics have not been updated because at the post time those servers were empty) (double note: I couldn't log on to Boxy War, the client kept hanging)

Great shots, but could use better graphics.
If that's the best your computer can do, however, we can live with it. 8)
I'm thinking I need a better sig than this...

Also, since my fellow BZFlag users called me up about making a new thread to post the remaining pics, here are the remaining pics. (PS: Jeff, you can delete that other thread in Chat)

Honestly, I wouldnt know the difference if you were on 2.0 or 2.8.
If you want to represent the latest BZ, set the qualities to higher.

And yes, you do sound stupid.

Turn up the quality to something other than Low... becuase they look lower-quality than the 2.0.0 screenshots.

I can get some nice shots tomorrow. Will post then. Full quality, of course. :)

(and if I could get a full 2.1.x server, I'd post one of those as some of the new graphics are very good)

I couldn't bring myself to vote for any of those images; the graphics are horrible! :(

I think if you or anyone else were to update the images on wikipedia, the screenshots should be of a map that that has more than the default brick wall and green grass textures. Clicky

[edit] I blurred the IP addresses in the chat box. [/edit]

best would be one that has the default UI settings as well, not big radar, or big chat, etc. just a nice map, on experimental, with little clutter.

DTRemenak and I were editing the page last night to clean up some of the incorrect info in it. The screenshot it has isn't too bad.

remember that wikipedia is not an advertisement for the game, but an informational resource, it is an encyclopedia.

I'm not entirely certain that, in a forum like wikipedia where people know very little about the game, that having names like Loser! and Ivanna Fookya on the screen cap really is casting us in our best light.

I haven't touched BZFlag for years, but maybe sometime I'll make a comeback.

Does it really matter if it casts 'us in our best light'?
After all, it isnt an ad for the game.

We're gettin a bit off topic, but... yeh, it does matter. There's plenty of things that come up every day where I do the right thing for absolutely no reason other than it's the right thing.

I am a very active contributor to wikipedia in some areas where I have subject matter expertise, and I feel quite strongly that wikipedia's contributors, and readers, deserve better than "Ivanna Fookya."

And, I beleive that any community... whether it's a volunteer group, a non-profit service group, or a bunch of game players is always advertising.

yeah we should probably replace it with one with good names. I'll see what I can dig up.

*edit*
I actually don't see any shots with bad names, or those mentioned.
where was the ones with those names? or has someone replaced them already?

The names in my post are ones from one of the images (the fourth, I think) in the original post in this thread.

Galt's world

How about screenshots from Galt's world? I think it's one of the most beautiful maps I've played on. Maybe someone can take better screenshots than I did?
