    Minor image enhancements are permitted so long as the screenshot remains representative of the actual graphics quailty that can be expected in Entropia Universe.

    A couple suggestions for the rules to avoid conflict in the very near future:

    1) Place a MindArk time deadline for all entries, as Dec. 8th ends at different times throughout a 24 hour period across the globe. It may be better to have all entries due at the same time.

    2) I think you forgot the gallery link...

    3) Is there a date/time for when the judges will make an announcement on the winners?


    Good luck with your marketing.

    How you do that..???. dashboard icon in action library removes chat, health bar, etc. However, it does not remove ALL parts of gui as far as I know? There's a few icons that are there by default that I don't think can be removed, or if they can be, I'm not sure how you do it?

    but... on the size of the image I'm not sure... Even with window mode off, this computer which has screen resolution of 1440x900 seems to be making screen prints that are only 1024x768? Is there some other way to get the screen prints? Would sources from third party programs do a better job or be allowed? (fraps, camstudio, etc?)

    One way, if third party apps are allowed that seems to work possibly... Record with camstudio (I like it more than fraps since it is really free for the full thing - no watermarks), change region to full screen... hit record... This thing will record an avi file of your in game session...

    Then, go in to virtualdub after you are done with that (again, that's another free program! ) and do export image sequence as jpg... Instructions on that are over at http://www.ehow.com/how_5057101_conv...-freeware.html

    What's nice (if this is allowed) is that you have an avi file now recorded as well as image file sequence... so uploading your video to youtube is not out of the question. (note - if you have sound option turned off on camstudio and upload to youtube, it might give an error about unrecognized codec or something, but it still uploads the file just fine... and if you want, you could possibly go further with youtube stuff (even though it's not an official part of the contest) and remix sounds and wav files, etc. in virtualdub, even though it may take a while to do... )

    Oh a question, must the screenshot be taken after this announcement or can I use some of my old ones?

    Desktop Icons
    AND
    Dashboard

    Both in Action Library.

    And, change your ingame resolution from Options, not just your desktop resolution :p
