Screenshot categories

As far as I can see, the Mega Drive Hack Screenshots category is for actual screenshots, while the XXXX Images categories are for other images related to the hack which aren't screenshots (e.g. your monitor images). Not too sure about that though, and also not sure if screenshots related to a particular hack should be categorized under both the XXXX Images category and the Hack Screenshots category, so I'm not going to be making any edits until someone with more knowledge of this can fill us in. --Shobiz 12:56, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Wiki Permissions

Thanks for sorting that out, I didn't see it and I pretty much added what I saw, my bad. :( SOTI 10:08, 2 February 2009 (CST)

I'm being attacked?!

Haha; no worries. I just meant that I've ALREADY sort of "optimised" them by compressing with pngpress as per ScarredSun's reccomendation, so they should already be pretty close to minimum size. But hey, if you want to squeeze 'em further, I'm not going to get angsty. :) Frozen Nitrogen 23:20, 8 June 2009 (CDT)

Any ideas as to why my screencaps might be getting all emo (that is, darker) Nineko? What emulation / conversion processes are you using to get the much nicer bright ones? Frozen Nitrogen 22:01, 26 June 2009 (CDT)
In other news: I recently uploaded "File:Art marine.jpg", but is seems... un-displayable? It's fine just sat on my PC (a particularly large pic of aforementioned Sonic Rush Adventure racoon), but seems to abruptly DIE whenever I try to look at it, or a page containing it, on the wiki.

What optimizing software did you use?

What did you use? I tried to optimize them with PNGOUTWin, and still it is not perfect:( NeKit 22:41, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

I use the command line version of pngout.exe -- but it's not what, it's how. Nineko 23:05, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
Ok, how? Anyway, my last 3 images differed only in 2-4 KB. I think it is not worth fighting for. NeKit 23:19, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
I'm not fighting with anyone, this should be clear, even if it's not the first time I'm being accused of this. I'm just saving bandwidth, should it be 1 byte or 9000 terabytes it's not a difference for me. But you shouldn't take it as a personal offense. I optimise everyone's pics all the times. I'm deleting yours because they've been uploaded less than a few hours before I reuploaded them; otherwise I'd keep them as old revisions to keep a backup of their SHA1s (as per GerbilSoft's instructions, otherwise I'd delete everything, you know). As for pngout's parameters, just fiddle with them: each picture has different best optimal settings so it's not possible to write a tutorial of any mean. Or upload what you want and let me do the job :p Nineko 23:40, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, you didn't understand me about fighting right. I mean, that it is not worth for me trying to optimize images more, if I'll only win 2-4 KB. NeKit 08:51, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
Using pngpress will get better results than PNGOUTWin on its own. - Hivebrain 23:48, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

Reasonable filesize

<3 you --Shobiz 14:53, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

Charmy Pic

Just so you know, I used the pics that the author of the hack took himself. Not my fault they are not up to your standards.--MathUser 23:45, 31 January 2011 (UTC)


Oooh, we do have these! Thank you, I wanted to stick a billion of those everywhere. Despatche 19:36, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

From Talk:Nineko

Kega indeed. I'll try using Gens for the next few shots, see if that works. And I'll try to remember to optimize, too! :) Frozen Nitrogen 22:33, 26 June 2009 (CDT)
Hello. =P I notice from Category:Sonic & Knuckles Collection EU Manual Scans that you did that one, and there are a ton of missing images on that page - do you still have the original scans or the ability to redo them? We can take 17 images off the missing list if so. Cheers Overlord 16:42, 9 October 2009 (UTC)
Also, I see you did the conversions over at Sonic CD Level Maps - there are a staggering 65 corrupt or missing images here - any chance you can generate these again and reupload over the missing ones?

Having been waiting for you to turn up on IRC for the last 6 hours, it seems I must take alternate recourse and quiz you herein. What are your plans for the ASR car-stat screenshots we discussed the other day? Are you intending to have articles for the vehicles?
I ask because if so, I'll write ones for the newly-named Sonic Drift vehicles that 0r4ng3 has been investigating recently. ^_^ - Frozen Nitrogen (Talk) 04:30, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Needs to be updated

Can someone update this? I don't know the whole story. --PicklePower 17:39, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Nineko became enraged about some sort of procedural irregularity in the member validation process and banned himself.
Now I can upload non-pngpressed screenshots with complete abandon!! Frozen Nitrogen (Talk) 19:34, 16 April 2010 (UTC)
He changed his password to 5 and leaked it on #retro for some unknown reason. Fortunately, contrary to unpopular belief he is still alive, but I don't know if I should ask him... - Andlabs 19:42, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Formatting help

Thanks for the compliment. :) Actually I think what would look best is what we already have under Mushroom Hill miniboss section where its a mini gallery right underneath the description. A separate gallery could work but then it'd be difficult to link the bug to the picture. If someone wants the full picture, they can always click on it. I'll do a test page later and you can let me know what you think. --Woohookitty 04:17, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

Here you go. Also thinking about adding a screenshot of the "dueling Knuckles". That's easy enough to get to with debug. --Woohookitty 04:29, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
Well I went ahead and uploaded the changes. If you don't like them, change them. :) --Woohookitty 14:32, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
Thank you. :) Maybe I'll comb through some of the other bug pages and do some cleanup work. I've been treading water very lightly because I'm new-ish here and I know how Wikis can be :) --Woohookitty 04:25, 25 June 2010 (UTC)
