New forum banner at the top of the forum - feedback needed!
« on: September 27, 2012, 11:52:30 AM »
Maybe it's time to change the banner at the top of the forum (maybe also the frontpage) with a new one containing the text: "alphacentauri2.info made by SMACers, for SMACers"?
« Last Edit: September 27, 2012, 01:41:59 PM by sisko »
Anyone else feels like it's time to fix the faction graphics bug?

Great idea - I've booted up GIMP.  A copy of the shot you used without the current text, please.

this is all i can find in the computer at work. you can black-erase the text i think..

All I could do with the font was get it close, but I think in the latter attachment, we have a winner...

This is 1024 wide, and the forum has resized the display for the attachment, but you get the idea...

I believe I finally matched the font.

Folks, stuff like this matters - people are simply more likely to register and participate at an attractive, well-done website, so it's in your own best interest to see that AC2 is that.

Like what?

[ninja'd] Oops; forgot the italics...

Again, these are as tall as the original, and look better at full size.

Some niggling little adjustments/corrections.  The one you used was unfinished, unless you don't like the italics.
