people do like animated banners because you can't take your eyes off it, and that should be the purpose i believe.

This. Also, you can do some really nice eye candy things that make it appealing to viewers.

i've just bumped into old sctfl banner competition thread and this is what i found (needed to print screen due to not being able to save the original image for some reason, thus it might have lost a little bit of quality)



This bracket was made by Projekt back in 2009. i think it would be great if someone could resize this to required size. all of the other files expired, but i think it was the best one, at least it got the most votes in the official poll.

First is jacking off. Second is running back and forth like he's a retard. Third is him exploring his paranoia complex by looking left and right over and over.

Seriously, give these guys guns that work and something to shoot so it's at least a little engaging, to all us men who like violence.
Careful with that axe, Eugene.

FTFY.

Totally agree with jrgp. This is not a gay fest..

if we're talking about animated banner, this is the best one by far. Delete the "|" though, please.


these are the best non-animated banners






we should open the poll already. its up to sctfl community to say what they want, or it could be rotating every new month between these images

I think that would be too much work for these amazing devs.

These are my last ones unless anyone else has any suggestions/creative ideas. I can do pretty much just about anything and I'm on vacation for the next 3 weeks.

I agree. It's simple and polished enough. Animated banners usually out-perform static banners. It's also important to note that a good sctfl banner should not be judged on how good it looks on the popup, it's judged on its performance. It could be the ugliest thing in the world, but if it brings at least few people into competitive scene then it's considered to be a successful design.

I really like Control's banner(s). A few good there.
I also do like the idea of adding the banner to soldat homepage.

But, with due respect, may I ask why it hasn't been done yet?

I know that we are trying to get the nag-screen banner to work and will most probbably be in next beta, Shoozza wants a non-animated file wich is not so big, preferably like 8-12kb
We pretty much decided on this one for now, shouldn't be too hard to change though


but not so sure about the homepage

Furai did some work on this.
The plan is to remove the monsoonix.dll and rewrite parts of the banner download code in the future (possibily 1.6.9) as the backend died some time ago and cannot be used anymore.

Can't we simply get rid of the splash screen? Or does MM absolutely want to put nag screens for his potential customers?
