Does anyone want a custom loading screen for MM&M? If so, what should it be?

I like the current mini-map picture, but if DBC is willing, I wouldn't mind an awesome loading screen.

I think a cool picture showing a bunch of the elements like elemental td would be kinda cool, but due to how many elements we have you'd probably have to do 2 rings, an inner ring of 3 an outer of 5.

Hellz Ya!!! I think it should be the little icon for now, and on BetA change it and get DBC to make a kick ass one. Or have a contest to make a loading screen. Then change it on "Launch" or "Release" or whatever to an EVEN BETTER one. Smile

Even if we hold a contest for the loading screen, won't DBC win that anyways? Very Happy

Meh, the game could get bigger by BetA (which is when I suggest the contest be held, so the whole summer till that comes basically) and there may be some artists out there that we don't know about...also it throws out some ideas for loading screens that DBC could possibly improve upon.

Does this image seem like it'd be pretty cool, because I think it might fit in some ways, but the long fingernails are meh...



Something a bit more simple could be this:

I still like the image that's the little one on the game screen...or maybe even a rearranged forum banner....One of the two untill beta. I don't really think it fits a loading screen that well for the images you posted.

The tiny one would look absolutely horrid, because the details would be spread out really hardcore... Give me a few minutes and I'll upload a picture of it at a big size.

EDIT: Look how pretty it is... and it's still not even large enough to be considered the full loading screen:

i like the second one you put up, Sin. but it doens't illustrate the multiple elements. I think that any screen that is chosen should illustrate in some way the diversity of the elements, perhaps build on the 2nd one by adding the elements around the center circle, and perhaps blending them in the center and between them.

I finally noticed this topic... Lol.
Well the problem with a detailed/good looking loading screen.
Is it takes up WAY to much room. You could always use a black
background with colored text. Or if you really want ill download
Photoshop onto this computer and make one. But one problem
for some reason downloading trials off adobe is currently disabled.

We still have 3MB to spare to put things into the map...
A full loading screen might take up at most 1MB.
That's at the MOST!

Without losing quality.

No no no, Blizzard works in .blp. It compresses the image a ton and makes it much smaller. Besides, the brown orb picture I put up earlier saved with only 500KB (0.5MB). The compression into .blp would make it even smaller.

It will take awhile though.
Suggestions and Feedback would be helpful.
