The Continuous Screenshot Competition 2

Could Firefax please post the new theme?

Indiana Jones Winners:


  • 1st Place: The Well of Souls by Elrich
  • 2nd Place: "It's bound to be booby trapped" by Firefax
  • 3rd Place: Don't bring a sword to a gunfight by HailToTheOboe

    The theme for the current screenshots is: Indiana Jones and entries can be submitted till the 19th of April, voting for the two days after that, starting on the 20th. Voting will be announced.

    What is this?
    The Continuous Screenshot Competition is stolen from AoKH, where it has been active and used for a very long time. It is to promote screenshots, and also to just have fun looking at and making the scenery. Each time there will be a theme in which the screenshot should fit, the winner of last theme is allowed to pick the new one. If a winner wins for the second time in a row, the number 2 is allowed to pick the theme. This thread is its second installment, and you might be wondering why we need a new thread. This is because of thread corruption: The more posts a thread gets, the more likely it is to corrupt, and I think it would be a big waste if we lost all the links to screenshots from the first installment.

    The rules
    • No category may be used twice.
    • You may only enter one screenshot per category.
    • The previous winner can compete in the competition he set the theme for, this is a form of trust, so be honest.
    • Please do not suggest themes for the winner.
    • No altering of screenshots, except for adding text and borders.
    • Modding is allowed.
    • Both AoM and AoM: TT screenshots can be used.
    • You are not allowed to make screenshots from maps created before the competition, but you can use the map for something else after taking the screenshot.
    • No flaming, but constructive comments are allowed.
    • Everyone is allowed to vote one time per competition for one screenshot.
    • The winner of the last round may pick the theme for the new one, he can also add an extra restriction.
    • If same person wins in twice in a row (or more times), the runner-up may pick the new theme.
    • You cannot vote for your own screenshot.

    Time between the competitions
    We have one week for the competition followed by 2 days to vote, after that the winner can post the new theme and we can start again.

    Tips
    You can host shots at:
    You can make in-game screenshots with the following method:
    1. Press the Print Screen button on your keyboard.
    2. Paste your shot into a program like Paint.

    Winners from earlier rounds
    All previous winners have been uploaded to the gallery here.

    Dang it! I submitted a War of the World(s) screenshot for Hocus Pocus.

    Of course, it was the Martian version.
    So... is this about a World War, or the alien thing?

    Good, but it needs like a death ray or something from the movie.

    Ah, my last-minute entry:

    The Beginning of the End


    This was my original title, I didn't steal darkmonarch's title.

    BIG question, how do I make them have attack anims?
    posted 02 December 2007 03:25 AM EDT (US)     37 / 1885  
    Use an invisible target. Place this object as a player number that is an enemy of the unit you want to be attacking. Then create a trigger that has the effect Unit Work. Source unit: your attacker, target: the invisible target. Your unit will attack the the invisible target for all eternity. Make sure you move the target so that the unit attacks in the direction you want.

        You can also use one of the heroes that has an animation for it already. Then you would use the Army Animation/Unit animation effect in your trigger. You just have to match the correct unit with the animation from the list of animations that is for that unit.
    First way is easiest.. 3:30 am goodnight...

    I like the eyecandy but its too wide a shot, tyou probably should have focused on 'columbus' a bit more.
    Hee hee-notice the norse- they say the vikings got to america first and so they did!

    I wanted a panoramic view: like it's just done the close up on Columbus and is now zooming out to show where he's landed. Also, the skaerlings are ulfsarks And there are egyptian spearmen too.

    Excellent, I can do eyecandy now

    can't you use the laptop as a screen?

    I'm sure it's possible if you look up the techno babble.

    Here's the rub, I think firefax is on Vanilla, and I can't seem to find the invisibile target object.

    One thing you can do (with reyk's editor) is put a house down and flip it so it is underground. If the unit is standing on the house, it'll attack so that it's facing the middle.

    You have to be tricky with diplomacies though, or every unit will come running to attack the house.

    I wanted to make a shot like this, but how would you make the tripods? I suck at modding so I sure as heck couldn't make one.

    substitute it with the argus then

    I could do the tripod thing from War of the Worlds if we were making screenshots of Google Earth Plus!
