I've prepared a few screen shots from BS1 and BS2. I don't suggest we use all of them, but maybe one of each for the screenshot gallery on the ScummVM page.

So what about this? What's stopping you, erik, from checking this in?

comment:2 by eriktorbjorn, 20 years ago

Mostly not knowing enough about how our Web pages work.

Hehe fair enough :-). To add a screenshot, do this:

1) Get a checkout of the "web" module 2) Find the next free number for a screenshot (look at the filenames in "screenshots", e.g. 29 (which reminds me, we should change the filenames for the one digit pictures to 00, 01 etc.) 3) Put your picture into "screenshots" with the name "big_scummvm_29.png" (or whatever other number) 4) Put a 'thumbnail' version into "scummvm_29.png" 5) Put a brief description into "scummvm_29.txt" 6) Don't forget to add binary files (like PNGs) with the -kb option! I.e. cvs add -kb *scummvm_29.png

That's it (unless I forgot something :-)

Ok, I've picked two screenshots from each game and added them the way you said. It seems to have worked, except the Web page squashes the images from 640x480 to 640x400.

In this particular case, I guess I could crop the images because the extra pixels are used for menus, i.e. black most of the time. But I'd rather not.
