BS1/BS2: Screenshots for the Web page

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.

The screenshots are at

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

comment:2 Changed 15 years ago by eriktorbjorn

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.
