gallery not working

20 April 2016 - 06:32 PM

If I go to community then gallery no images show. None of the images in the main box show nor the preview ones below it. I can scroll and see image names but there is actually no image for them. This is happening on safari browser as well as chrome. They do not work on my tablets either. This has been broke for me for quite awhile. Not sure if this is the best place to post this but didnt know where else to post it.

trade marked orc design

29 March 2016 - 03:32 PM

Whenever I picture an orc I see the classic Blizzard Orc. Green with small pointy ears overly large square jaw and big teeth. Blizzard has used the same iconic orc design since they were doing 2d adventure games. All the way up to world of warcraft and beyond. When I see the design or people who try and create orcs I stiIl think that is classic blizzard orc. In fact its so iconic its actually hard to create a unique looking orc that doesnt look like a blizzard orc and still have it look like an orc.


So my question is how much of this classic orc design is copyright. Its so iconic and hard to get away from the classic blizzard orc and still consider it a orc. heck even today a orc looks strange to me if it isnt green.

How to did Spelunky not get sued

28 October 2015 - 10:04 PM

I was wondering if someone can tell me how a game like spelunky can be made and not be sued. The game spelunky was a knockoff of the game spelunker. Although it was a nintendo game I remember playing it on mame and in the arcade. This game was famous for its unfair deaths. Fall 1 pixel. dead. It was a game not forgotten though. Even ps 3 had a very awful spelunker HD. I dont understand how a game like Spelunky that literally copied more then 75% of the original game and didnt even try to change the name. it just added a y to the name could not get sued. Its like me creating a mario game in the mario universe and calling it dario.


I like Spelunky. I think it improved on the original game. I actually wanted to create a spelunker game. However I didnt because of copyright. Its better that they did actually, because they did a better job then I would have done. Its just so close to the original even the name I dont understand how it even exists without paying royalties.


Maybe this has been covered before and I missed it? I am usually late to the party.

2d image position

28 October 2015 - 08:09 PM

if you had a large background image of Micky mouse how can you insure that the main character image always starts standing on Mickey's nose no matter what the resolution is. if you try and code the position in pixels this will change with resolution correct? I have a background image and I want my character to be placed in a certain spot on the background image. however I dont know if it will be in the proper place if the resolution changes.

Art community

I am looking for a decent art community. Is there a active site around besides conceptart.org and deviantart. It seems a lot of the art community's died over the years.
