IMAGEPACK - Filetype recommendations & ECC standards

Unread post by Phoenix » 17 Jan 2009, 01:50

Hi All,

When sharing a imagepack, i see many GIF's / TITLE PNG's / Wrong extensions of images...please use this filetype for the following slots:

PNG : ingame (all) ; media icon
JPG : cover (all) ; booklet ; media flyer ; media storage


- Please never use GIF's & ICO's, convert these to PNG! (http://www.irfanview.com)

Thanks in forward!

Media cover --> JPG (no gif/png), please try to use the ENGLISH version of a cover!
If you have the right cover for the version of the game (e. g. German Cover for the German version) you should use this cover!

Hi DerMicha!

in most cases, no need to "convert" the ico to png with programs.

only, try to rename manually the extension .ico to .png in windows and if windows asks your confirmation, accept the changes.

Hi Jarlaxe,

Better not to do that way, because the files will still have the ICO header inside, with an PNG extension :?, better is to convert these to PNG with BATCH-converting (Irfanview)

The first post seems to be inaccurate, at least according to IPC 1.0.0.7 code... :online2long:

IPC 1.0.0.7 tells us :
PNG : ingame (all) ; media icon
JPG : cover (all) ; booklet ; media flyer ; media storage

Who shall we trust ? :shifty:

I regret to not having watched this code before ending my imagepack, fortunately, there are few games for this one :sweatdrop:

Hi wAw,

It seems in the first post:
Ingame title --> PNG (no gif/jpg)
Ingame play --> PNG (no gif/jpg)
Media cover --> JPG (no gif/png), please try to use the ENGLISH version of a cover for English versions if available.
Media icon --> PNG (no gif/ico)

= THE SAME AS:

PNG : ingame (all) ; media icon
JPG : cover (all) ; booklet ; media flyer ; media storage

Right?

Maybe i should clearify the post a littlebit ;)

Right.
It was the "mostly others slots in PNG format" under, that make me misunderstood this thing ^^

Now that I understood, I can go forward, thanks you :)
