what would that accomplish? why not just save it as a PNG in PhotoShop?

if you meant why not make it a PNG so that you could have translucency, you cant. displaying a png in IE wont do translucency. only .gif files will get an alpha channel applied, so you are stuck with that limited format...

also MSpain for <WinXP cant save as PNG anyway :p


oh gif as transluceny..then, use the game making tool Game Maker, and use its sripte ma-bober and save the file as gif. No color loss will happen and it will look just as good =D

because .gif cant have translucency like .png, its either colored or its not nothing in between.
so most of the cooler effects like motion blur cant be used outside the main image :(
and the bottom one of hirogen's logos is not nearly as cool as his others (the ones with blur)

thats why all his images have backgrounds and arent see-thru

that was not a rant, just some info on the limits of logo images...


and BTW: where is randy? come on randy! we need ideas! :)


So take the original PNG, slap it on whatever color the page background is going to use, save it as GIF, and viola. Rinse and repeat for each different page color.

There, now was that so hard?

woah... i think hirogen wins :)

Heh, as you say :P
hmmm... i need a fire texture like that.

Hire me, but the idea is patented(tm) and Must Be Licensed(tm) (nokthxbye to patents)
Bio: you should try something more colored, not just one filling for all chars.
the problem with hirogen's is that hed have to use the bottom one
because .gif cant have translucency like .png, its either colored or its not nothing in between.

1. Why do we need to use the bottom one? Just make the zdoom forum page black then :P
2. If you look tight, you will notice that it is saved in PNG, which HAS translucency. Don't use GIF, it's patented.
I think what you mean is that PNG does not have an alpha channel, but then again, GIF doesnot have either. BTW, GIF also can have transparency.

To clear it up, M$ IE fucks up transparent -- and especially multi-transparent layered -- PNGs, as could be seen in Notgod's old style (the green one) which displayed the logo in pink instead of transparent. But that's not my fault, it's IE's.

How does IE pick the color to use instead of transparent anyway? It always seems to be different.

The LZW patent did expire in the US, and I *think* it expires in.. Canada? soon?

ie probably picks the last or first color in the palette of the png for the color it shows instead of transparency. you can make pngs with transparency that show up in ie correctly, but you need to make them similar to a gif with an assigned transparent color and only 256 colors.

ie's png support isn't all that great anyway, aside from transparency issues, it also shows them much darker than they really are, which is annoying to say the least

Ok so here we go again.
I remade the black one using a stronger burn effect (no more details heh)
and I also remade the white one to not look "dirty" (smeared black borders)

Hirogen: Yours beats mine out of the water. I think it looks better over a black background.
