FFIV boss template[edit]

I set the image size to 150px in the FFVII template because the images were really big, but I see your sprites are getting stretched, so you might want to adjust the sizing. If you don't expect to have any really big images, I would just take out the forced sizing all together. Otherwise you could make another parameter to handle the size. Let me know if you need any help. — najzereT 19:36, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

F-Zero image[edit]

Hi, did you make this image? It's much like the ones Procyon makes, so I was wondering if you got the idea from StrategyWiki. — najzereT 04:21, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

  • Not only did I, err...liberate the idea from SW, I actually used the script ya'll made. It does such a marvelous job too! :D — TheTwantalk 04:31, 18 July 2009 (UTC)
Hey, I'm glad someone actually used it! — najzereT 04:35, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

File:MassEffect2 PC Standard.jpg marked for deletion[edit]

File:MassEffect2 PC Standard.jpg has been marked for deletion, as the cover art isn't significantly different from the previously uploaded image. If you'd like to discuss the deletion, you can do so here or on the image's talk page. Thanks for understanding, — najzereT 08:14, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the quick response! — najzereT 22:36, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Achievement images[edit]

Hey, thanks for fixing a ton of those ME2 achievement images; I should have known by the dark background that the ones I uploaded weren't legit! I saw you sourced for the images, and I was wondering if you know of a way to find the images directly on the site? For the PS3 I can get my own trophy images off my profile on PSN, and I think I can do the same for buddies I add online. Is that how it works for XBLA? Or is it possible to find the images some other way, without having a profile? I make a lot of achievement pages, and sometimes I just can't find a large enough image. Any help would be appreciated. :) — najzereT 00:06, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

No prob. At least there was something there until we could get colorized versions. :D I wish there was an easy way to find the colored images from but I've yet to find one. I've been using the leaderboards on to see who has the most achievements in a game, I go to their profile, and then I do a whole lot of right-click + Save as. For example, for ME2 this can lead me to a profile and finally to achievement images. So you don't really need to be buddies with that person to see their achievements (unless they have privacy settings enabled to thwart you).— TheTwantalk 04:04, 23 January 2010 (UTC)
Okay, thanks for the info. I guess nothing's ever as easy as it should be. :/ I might try that technique out on some of the harder to find images. Thanks! — najzereT 19:53, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

Re: ME2 Vehicle[edit]

I noticed you added in controls for a vehicle on Mass Effect 2. I'm almost to the end of the game now and I've yet to encounter a pilotable vehicle anywhere (though I know there is the Hammerhead, I don't believe it's out yet). Where do you encounter a controllable vehicle in the game? If I can find it, I can figure out its controls and add them. — TheTwantalk 21:49, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

There are no usable vehicles in the base game, so these will be for the Hammerhead DLC. They were listed in the PC version's control customisation section. The Xbox vehicle controls are logical guesses based on other control similarities and may not be correct. --Garrett (talk) 22:37, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

AS images[edit]

How are you obtaining those Alien Swarm images? Are you just screenshotting them? Or...? -- Imjon (talk) 05:04, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Yes, mostly screenshots. The rest I get from the Steam community pages (achievements, stats, etc.) — TheTwantalk 19:17, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Unused Advanced Wars image[edit]

Hi, where can we use File:AWDoR Medal Small.png? If it is unnecessary, let us know so we can delete it. Thanks, --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 21:40, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Batman: Arkham City Achievements/Trophies[edit]

I saw that you are making an Achievement/Trophy list, but are having difficulty finding quality images. You can find them here. This website always has Trophy images weeks before the release of a game. - ThatLuciano 23:41, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

Oooo, fancy. Many thanks, mate. :D — TheTwantalk 03:50, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

We try to get images that are at least 64x64 pixels as achievement images. What I normally do on games for PS3 is get the full 240x240 trophy image and use it scaled to 64px. If you keep clicking on the images from the page posted above, they go through to the full size ones. No big deal, I'll put it on my list and get around to it later if you don't. Cheers and thanks to both of you for helping with achievements and trophies! — najzereT 06:20, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

Odd that I'd have to click through so far to get the full-size images. Oh well, thanks for pointing it out. I'll take care of it. — TheTwantalk 16:16, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
