GTA - IV Screen Shot Competition

 

 

 

 

 

Introduction

 

A few weeks ago, forum member NaidRaida suggested via pm a screenshot competition for GTA IV. With the Competition sub-forum being a part of the Mod Showroom, it seemed fitting enough that the competition be created for every member with GTA IV (PC) be able to participate.

 

 

 

Brief

 

This is a user-screenshot competition for GTA IV (including The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony). Everyone is free to participate as long as one mod (be it graphical, a script, mission, vehicle, etc. any combination) is running in-game (this is the mod showroom after all, no out of the box GTA IV screenshots). Mod Showroom rules still applies to mods, as such we discourage the promotion of conversions and ripped models. There are no judges for this competition, but rather entries will be rounded up and put to a poll for members to vote on. Please post your entry in this topic.

 

 

 

Rules

 

- One entry per member.

- Size/Resolution limited to 800 x 600, should the member wish for a larger resolution, please post a thumbnail link to the Full-size image instead.

- At least ONE mod running in-game. Please state with your entry which mod is running and credit the mod's author (if available)

- Graphical mods such as ENB are encouraged.

- Scripts/Mods/Trainers such as first-person or HUD disable are allowed to give your entry a clean screenshot look.

- Single or multiplayer screenshots are allowed, go grab a friend!

- Mod Showroom rules apply, no converted models or ripped content in your screenshots.

- Likewise, no stealing or claiming of other people's screenshots as your own.

- No post-editing in photoshop! Photoshop use to be limited to cropping and resizing only.

- You can add a watermark or signature to your entry should you wish to do so.

 

 

 

Duration

 

Competition starts as of this date of posting (June 9)

and will end on June 18 11:59PM - London (Saturday)

 

Voting will open on June 19 6:00PM - London (Sunday) for one week until June 26 6:00PM - London (Sunday)

 

 

 

**special thanks to NaidRaida for providing the idea and banner graphic for the competition.**

Cool, there it is! tounge.gif

Of course I´ll join.

Can I directly post the pic here? I´m a bit confused right now.

 

Folks, please make sure you´ve read the rules carefully - it´s not that much - if you wanna join, less discussions will increase the fun.

You don´t need stock cars BUT converted car models from other games are not allowed cause this a generall forum rule (no advertising for conversions, no hosting).

Due to the fact it´s a competition directly hosted on GTAF this rule must be enforced cause it´s an important and traditional rule.

Generally, a lawyer could say "converting is not legal" (finally it´s ripped!) although it´s very common (we all have converts I know wink.gif ), but the most conversions DO NOT have a permission from the original authors, it´s that simple.

And GTAF doesn´t support this, especially in an official competition. Generall forum rules are omnipresent ALL THE TIME.

 

Note: This is a generall forum rule that stands above the competition and is out of discussion! You have to suck that bitter pill. wink.gif

If you have a car and the permission to advertise/show it officialy, no problem.

 

*** If something of this "speech" is wrong, please correct me! ***

@above

I don't want to steal your idea, but if it's allowed I'm also gonna do that for 'security' ok? smile.gif

 

@NaidRaida

So I can just use modded cars as long as they're not converted from, say, Shift 2?

Thing is, I don't really know which cars are converted and which aren't biggrin.gif

 

So, I gues I'll be hunting for a nice screen smile.gif

Can i use my logo in my screenshots?

Tagging the picture with your name is OK, if the picture is not spoilt. That is the only "photoshop effect" that is allowed (besides cutting/resizing).

What you have shown is okay. icon14.gif

Yeah, I know, difficult sometimes to know where it really comes from. Models which are stated as "converted from..." in any kind (f.e. in it´s readme) are definately inappropriate.

If you don´t know where it comes from, it´s definately better to stay away from this... then you´re at least 100% save.

 

 

- Mod Showroom rules apply, no converted models or ripped content in your screenshots.

Dang... now that might spoil the competition for me...

I thought that too, but there´s no alternative. BTW, I really like the stock cars. No problem for me.

There are also some "VIP" cars around, they´re also not allowed cause they´re either VIP and not available for everyone and/or they´re conversions.

 

If you wanted to show a nice converted model (which may be nice, no question) you have to change! smile.gif

Same for me. If we can't post pictures about those then it makes no sense, since 90% of the cars are converted from other games. Also game models are usually pinpoint accurate while scratch models are inaccurate.

 

Also if you take a suggestion, I think there should be 2 different types of screenshots, which is ENB and non-enb (still graphic mods can be used). I mean for god's sake I saw photoreal (or very close to that) pictures with ENB.

Only 1 post (1 screen) for one account???

yup, no multiple accounts either. (obviously, but for more serious reasons)

 

regarding conversions:

 

 

-Models that require permission from a corporate entity, like EA Games, aren't allowed for conversions. period.

 

 

of course, even though this is a screenshot competition we wouldn't like to promote the idea of licensed/converted models running in-game.

 

The mod showroom promotes originality and creativity, and we're just trying to stick to that idea.

Well ok, now I surely will never win; about 90% of my cars are converted, and those stock cars are awful (except for Comet, Infernus, a bit SuperGT & Sultan RS) confused.gif

no one said you had to use default models.

 

I can argue all about conversions the whole day, but this topic is simply not for it.

 

I've already stated in the first post, Naidraida already explained this, and I even quoted it from the showroom rules:

 

Models converted from other games: no go.

 

Understand this, or leave the topic.

This is a bit unfair imo, I mean all the maps are converted from games, and they are allowed on this site, however all the cars that has been converted are not allowed...

Take an example: Dakota IV, map made by EA Games, Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 SL, car made by EA Games. What's the difference?

^^ I can feel your pain partially Rob, really, BUT please don´t use this topic as discussion topic, that will decrease the fun A LOT imao.

If you want to discuss about possible forum rule unfairness, please post a discussion topic about such issue somewhere, or contact a staff member.

I really would like to know something about that, I like discussions, but not here.

 

Cool pic, quechus. icon14.gif

I created another topic in the GFX request section

to provide that the winner will get some kind of recognition if he wins this story.

 

An official medal will not be available but this may be also nice, and definately better than nothin.
