I'm looking for screenshots for a tourists guide. It is a sight seeing guide to the more intersting locations found in GW.

This is landscapes only. So if you would like to donate a screen please make sure there are no character, HUD or the like and please provide a screen of your map so I will have an accurate location for the pic.

You can post them here on this thread or email them to me (address in profile).

http://www.thewitchking.com/GWMapProject/index.html

All screens will give proper credit to the submitter.

This is still a fledling project so there is only one screen so far.

How do you take the HUD and everything off the screen before you take the snapshot? I couldn't find anything in the manual.

Another thread mentioned this, press Ctrl+Shift+H to toggle hud and skill bars etc. on and off

I like this thread, I've been taking snapshots of interesting buildings and statuary that I find scattered round the landscape - sadly they all include me and the party cos I didn't know this key combo

Chard

I really need a screen of your map showing the exact location the screen was taken. I havn't been to alot of these locations myself so I don't have any prior knowledge to come up with a location.

Thank for all the great screens..keep them coming.

Narafed the screens need to be just terrain. No hud or PC's.

They are great Black Claw..but I need a pic that shows the location where the screens were taken. Something like what Scott the Green did in the above post of his would work perfectly.

wonderful screenshots. I'll get these added as soon as I can.

If your taking requests. I'd like to get at least one screenshot for each area.
Just check out the guide and you can see what areas have no screens yet.

Hopefully this wont get dumped into a different forum like the last one that doesn't get any traffic.

I'm looking for screenshots of terrain only, no monster, no players, no combat.
For a Tourists Guide to show off the beautiful landscapes of GuildWars.

Not for PvE, not for PvP, not for strategizing. Just to help support the GW community and game.

Reason I'm stating all of this is in hopes that the mods won't dump this thread into PvE where no one will see it.

Please provide a screen of your map so I will have an accurate location.

pm if your interested in seeing the project.

Well there are 2 issues here...

1.) This board requires you ask permission before posting links.

2.) There is a specific "Media" type forum on these boards.

I would suggest contacting Fallen, Chantal, or Tarrant. Perhaps they can help ya set something up.

Chard
19-06-2005, 12:07
I spoke with one of the mods and nothing was said about a problem with the link. Only reason he gave for moving it was because it was "PvE" related. Which didn't make much sense to me so I tried to make sure they knew it wasn't pve related in the above post.

well, doing some more helping, this time around d'alessio seaboard, and i remembed you again. Great oppurtunity for me to get piccies doing things like this, because i'm not so concerned about getting A) Mashed B) Completing the misssion, because i know im not dying, and i know im completing it. So i takes my lovely camera along.

You've earned yourself a 3-day temp ban. I explained to you previously why your original thread was moved. Just because you disagree with it does not give you the right to repost in the INCORRECT forum.

As far as "dumping into PVE where no one will see it" goes, those that are interested will see it. It does not give you the right to clutter another forum with unrelated topics.

Edit: Merged with your original thread.

I have to say I love this project. It is a great way to show off the time and effort put into GW. IMO though this should be in the Community Forum and not the Strategy Forum. There seems to be nothing strategic about it. What does everyone else think?

I have screens that I will have to post up very soon. Keep up the great work Chard

Thanks for the great screenshots everyone.
Have any of you by any chance fully explored the world map? I'm hoping to find someone who has a completely explored world map.

If you do could I ask for a high rez screenshot of your zoomed out worldmap? If so remember to ctrl-shift-H to remove the labels and such.

I'm looking to change the way the map works a bit from what I have now. The current setup requires a lot of hand tooling of images and a lot of image mapping.

Thanks again for the screens and if anyone can help me out with this it would be appreciated.

The easiest way to tell Loki is to look at what is already in the tourists guide.

Most areas tho still need screenshots.

This is a pretty cool project. I've often thought of taking a screenshot of some impressive landmark or feature but never really had any idea what I'd do with one if I did. Now I do. I think I might make a sweep through Ascalon and find a few of the ones I remember liking.

I've finished the new map design for the Guide. It will be much easier for me to add new screenshots now. :happy65:

I took out the individual zone maps :( but there is still plenty of detail in each region map to see exactly where the screenshots where taken.:happy34:

Now to add all my screenshots I've been taking. :eek:
