Screenshots: The thread

Post by Dragon » Tue May 25, 2010 10:00 am

It's a thread, hopefully it'll have interesting, funny or otherwise pretty screenshots in it. I happened to be playing Dragon Age last night and snapped this screenie which I thought was pretty cool:



I was going to post another screenie from Mass Effect 2 where a fairly lively looking chap had the caption: "Examine dead body" hovering over him but, fortunately, I forgot where I saved it.

Also, if an admin with phpBB mod privileges comes along, it doesn't appear the 'img' width/height mod is installed (or I'm being thick). I'll scale it back to 640x480 later.

The visual style strongly resembles Vagrant Story.

Argh I never got the chance to finish that dragon, and now that I've solved the game I can't go back to it :(.

Ah, I remember making maps like that for StarCraft, basically think Starship Troopers. Never ending hordes of Zerg throwing themselves against a few marines. Good times, good times.

That dragon was one of the hardest battles I faced in Awakening, and completely unexpected. "Oooh stairs, sparkly blue. Oh shit, oh shit, oh shit."




I can't remember if I posted this before but I think it's still one of the funnier/stranger shots I've taken from Fallout 3.

To be honest, I've never seen a death claw in Fallout 3, is that poor thing in that fat man explosion a Death claw?

And, hurrah! More screenshots!

Hey sweet! I found this tag called 'rimg=' that resizes images. Was it always there? :oops:



It's a screenshot from DA:Origins... or is it? Bonus points if you can work out what's actually happening here.

you're working on a cut scene for your own mod? :)

Alas no (or maybe from an SC1 perspective not so alas). It's actually the geometry from DA:O rendered in 3dsmax. I used this tool to capture the DirectX draw calls which includes all the cute little triangles and stuff. I have no good reason why I felt like doing this but I'm impressed it worked with something as complex as Dragon Age.

And on a dev'y note here's a screenie of my IDE. Long live the Borland Pascal colours!

Borland Pascal? Surely you must mean Turbo Pascal! :D
