My pathetic attempt at MSPaint 3D.

Any comments?

Hey thats not bad.


You still like that rtcw dont you ;)

There are a couple of things off.. the stock has no 3D front face, neither does the grip, and the top of the gun, those protruding bits could be more 3D if you finished them off with a line going from corner to corner, to complete the front face.

(sorry it was a bit hard to explain that :) )

I'm a bit tired of RTCW...I've finished it several times, in several different ways (one of which was NO SAVING ALLOWED except at the beginning of each level).
I'll modify it a bit and get back to you. Good point re the stock - I completely missed that.

OK here it is.

I hate how saving a JPEG in MSPaint makes it all weird like that - oddly coloured pixels scattered throughout.

Much better :D

And yes, the "randomly coloured pixels" are called artifacts, and are common with high compression jpegs. Especially with poor quality programs such as MS paint. Photoshop for example can easily compress jpeg images to the same level without nearly as bad artifacts.

You should try saving as png, especially for an image with a lot of block colour like that. Lossless compression :D

Here's my rendering of the Colt 1911 (also MSPaint, not 3D this time).
(I used PNG. Good advice!)

Both look nice.  The Tommy gun is one of my favorite (video game) guns.  Cheesy  (I'm a big Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory player myself  Tongue )

Yeah, I had that but I uninstalled it for a couple of reasons. a) virtually every server made me download a crapload of DIFFERENT stuff (not just the updates, popular mods). And b) it was too slow on my inet connection. Other than that, it was a fine game indeed - and free, which is sort of...astonishing.

YEAH! tell me about it.

I despise playing CS because every freakin server has its own set of retarded sound effects it feels it has to install to my machine. It ends up taking 20 minutes to connect to just one stupid server. and like 50 mb. I wish they would turn custom content like that OFF. Or at least have a way to filter servers that are using it.

I play Call of Duty: United Offensive religously. It's a great game Smiley
I miss RTCW. Multiplayer was fun, but now only about 10 people play it.

10 people? Whenever I go on RTCW multiplayer there are at least 10 servers with 15+ people.
