Found an old picture of the ranking.lmp we used in Slackers in the old days.

http://www.slackers.dk/files/ranking.jpg


I was wondering if anyone would be interested in recreating this in high res version.
Only thing i have is the ranking.lmp from the gfx.wad. ( www.slackers.dk/files/gfx.rar )

Here is the high res ranking.png used in base.pk3 from ezquake

Any help would be much appreciated

I could give it a try if you a) extract the image out of that .lmp and b) find the font (or similar) that's been used

good first try dEus, i like the enthusiasm. Maybe add some shadow to give that 3d effect. Change font and make it little more 'thick' or something. But good work

I like the first one the best. The other one feels asymetric, with the dot pushing the text.
Possible to make it even darker? QW makes everything alot brighter

I think it should be dark since Slackers belongs to the dark side.

tried to make darker versions for in-game here here and here. it really depends on your contrast/gamma settings though. maybe somebody knows good settings to make it look nice in quake?

also, go SR!!

Can't you use the same quake font as in the high quality "Rankings" example from ezquake itself that you posted in your first post? So what I mean is, the exact same thing as the original rankings that you posted, but then change the text to "Slackers" instead of "Rankings". Think that would look awesome.

Thanks to Hooraytio for giving me chance to know that "Rankings" banner (that I made at 16:56 (GMT+6)) is cartoonish. <_<

Now this "Rankings" banner should be nice.
