the design of his splash is truly good, but i dont like green colors(especially darkgreen ones). its summer, we need light colors like red, orange and yellow.
maybe someone could do a vektor-picture?? ;)

Post by: chatterbug89 on July 09, 2006, 02:45:33 AM
Sorry, but I personally don't like any of them at all :S  Except Öhr GmbH, which is decent and is what i'm using as a place holder in my game right now.  But...they all are just sort of...bleh ..i dont' have a word for it.  We need the person who did the spring coding compo 2006 spash screens to come and do some new ones....because..those are realy well done. 

I may go ahead and give it a try...but....graphic design is not one of my strong points.  Maybe i'll bug a friend of mine to come up with something...

OK guys i was gonna hold off for a little longer but I can see some of the coders are getting frustrated. So here's my submission, i hope you like it. It screams summer and also reflects the community here:

GBA

Post by: chatterbug89 on July 09, 2006, 11:44:26 AM
yay...hope isn't lost!

I like yours quite a bit retrohead.  I was talking about it with a friend of mine who does a lot of graphic design...we both think that the text needs to change and the text affects (bevel and emboss and so on) should be removed.  And my friend thinks a more "comic Book font" would be better suited to the overall design.  My friend also thinks the colors should be changed for the text.

Otherwise, i like it a lot ^^.

By the way, my friend recomends this font to use with your splash screen.

i think theres no front like it. you might have to rebuilt it in vectors...
Title: Re: We need some good splash for the NEO Summer compo
Post by: retrohead on July 09, 2006, 06:28:16 PM
Thanks for all your positive comments. Here is version 2 of my splash screen using the font suggested by chatterbug89. Without a border on the text ot looks too plain and with a normal 1/2 pixel border it looks too jaggy so i again have applied the bevel border as i feel this looks best.

I will try to reproduce the neo flash font as best as i can but im not very good at fonts  :'(

Post by: retrohead on July 09, 2006, 07:13:51 PM
Ok round 3, i have to go do some other stuff now so this is the final version for the minute. Like i said before, i'm not very good at making fonts so the neo logo may not be perfect as i made it by hand, i havn't got time to make a full font file. I thin kthe text is hard to read on this version. My favourite is the first i made still just the "A" looks a little jaggy:

Retrohead, thats about the best splashscreen in the history of neocontests
Title: Re: We need some good splash for the NEO Summer compo
Post by: retrohead on July 10, 2006, 09:42:38 PM
Well it sounds like you all like my splash screen , thanks! ^-^

I am done with submissions now. I tried the Neo logo with the original colour and it looked awful no matter what i tried, the green and grey is the best for Neo Logo trust me. Let me know which one you want me to make the images of  ::sm-17.gif::

Version One:

erm, i actually tried those colours and thought they looked dreadful. At least you posting shows everyone what it looks like ^^
Title: Re: We need some good splash for the NEO Summer compo
Post by: Öhr GmbH on July 10, 2006, 10:32:27 PM
we need a other color instead of the red, because you cant read it sooo good...
the yellow is ok, but the read is the problem... someone has an idea?
Title: Re: We need some good splash for the NEO Summer compo
Post by: Dr.neo on July 10, 2006, 10:43:26 PM
yes,i think just need to fix the color adjust issue only,then it'll more better.
Title: Re: We need some good splash for the NEO Summer compo
Post by: retrohead on July 11, 2006, 12:33:51 AM
What about something more like this. The logo looks better down the left and does not interfere with the colour that makes the contest text look good

Hi,

Any chance you can post psp one without the little creature in it? If dr.Neo dont mind. I would find it more entertaining to have them animating durring the splash screen for my psp entry insted of just being static. :D

Thanks for the photoshop ones Öhr GmbH i've only just had time to check back here. I actually was inspired by the smilies here to come up with the design and my initial thoughts were yeah that would look awesome animated.

I think the  ;D smilie may not look like its 'chasing' the butterfly as much if it is animated the way it is here. I can't wait to see the animated spash screens!  ::sm-19.gif::
