Description

It could be nice if adding a gallery section so it can be possible to browse the gallery. Then you can select screenshots per game, platform or company.

This could be quite interesting for a general overview of the looking of games for people that wants to know about ScummVM and its supported games.

Sorry, but it's not quite clear on what you mean here. How different it should be from our current screenshots gallery?

Sorry, I explained *VERY* wrong...

- The Screenshots section seems wasting too much page space that can be used for showing more sections at one in the screen.

- The postcards' background has a different colour than background, what about using transparency? It occours under Opera 9.10

- The screenshots seems to have quite many obvious jpeg artifacts typical of overcompression, only occours when are on thumbails. Not appreciable on random screenshots of main site.

- It could be interesting if indicating company in the "Other games" section.

- It could be nice if possible to put company logos instead text.

- A link to the screenshots section on the "Screenshots" word up to the random screenshot could give more accesibility.

- Improve random, I often see the next screenshot of the next game or always the same ones.

- Maybe a way of changing behaviour of random screenshot of the main page, like pushing a tiny icon and selecting different company.

A bit offtopic... there are CSS problems under Opera 9.10 on the site, specially the main page.

What do you mean? Horizontally? Try 800x600. If you have 1600x1200, we
can't rely on that. Width of each screenshot thumbnail is 320 pixels.
So you may calculate by yourself.

> - The postcards' background has a different colour than background,

Which postcards? Which background? Where to use transparency? May
you provide a screenshot?

Please, provide list of bad pictures. For that I recommend to checkout
our web site. I will regenerate those bad thumbnails.

> games" section.
Where exactly? May you make a mock-up?

Again. Mock-up.

> up to the random screenshot could give more accesibility.
This is clear. Will do.

Ask Opera to do that. I use usual rand() from JavaScript.

May you elaborate a bit?

Which problems?

comment:16 Changed 12 years ago by SF/madventurer

Sorry for the very long delay.

I did attach some screenshots of the issues, including a few of the most obvious screenshots with graphic artifacts.

It seems the graphic artifacts are due to the scaler, not the original ones as I see them correctly in the original size.

Please request more screenshots of any type of needed, now I will submit them a lot faster.

comment:17 Changed 12 years ago by SF/madventurer

About the mockup stuff, I will do it later because I'm quite bad with graphics. Please say when you already located some of the mentioned bugs and what ones requires more feedback.

comment:18 Changed 12 years ago by SF/madventurer

Any reply about this?

What is the status of this item?

comment:20 Changed 12 years ago by sev-

CSS problem, apparently you mean overlapped text. Well, Opera decide to change behavior of shadow text over again. Perhaps I'll fix it someday if I'll know how to do it :/

As of different color in background, I fixed it, however it amazes me why off by one error in R component (#e8e7e7 vs #e7e7e7) lead to that visible pink. It must be your videocard driver.

As of artifacts in screenshots. I would gladly fix them, or you may do that too. You need to convert original PNG to 256 pixel wide JPEGs with minimal size. As of those screenshots which you provided, I am sorry, but I prefer original filenames, not just literal screen caps. So please, either supply exact names of screenshots (checkout web/trunk from SVN) or better redo them and submit, so I could just put them on our site.

As of your other proposals, I would gladly look at your mock-ups, but please, submit each issue separately as it makes difficult to work with them when they're stacked on same report.

So I'm closing this report as fixed background.
