Welcome to the The Continuous Screenshot Competition X - The Original Continuous Screenshot Competitions Around HeavenGames Since 21st May 2006!

______HOW IT WORKS______

Lo and behold!

I present to you, the tenth episode of our beloved, one and only, Continuous Screenshot Competition, which as its name blatantly applies, is where we hold a continuous screenshot competition. Yeah, for real. It's a continuous screenshot competition, where a continuous series of screenshot competitions take place. Quite original, don't you say? I never even thought of the idea that one could hold a continuous screenshot competition in a continuous screenshot competition thread! This is truly a magnificent discovery, a crowning achievement of mankind! It even compares to the discovery of sliced bread, and even the discovery of Albert Einstein! There's no doubt that it will go down in the pages of history. Because you see, as quoted from The Free Dictionary, history is defined as "a usually chronological record of events, as of the life or development of a people or institution, often including an explanation of or commentary on those events". Did you notice that I put an emphasis on the bold text? Yes, this is certainly a development of us, the AoKH people, of the AoKH institution. Age of Kings is just your ordinary medieval strategy game, what's the big deal about it? It's got sucky 2D graphics made of properly-designed pixels. And what's even worse is that players don't have the capability of constructing a spaceship, creating a naked female villager without having to mod those VMDLs *now that's a good idea*, or electing Julian Assange as president. So what is it that keeps it strong, after 11 years and many people are still infatuated by it? What's the reason? Well, I have no time to answer that question now, because this thread is where we submit screenshots from the game, not to have an pointless discussion about it. Seriously, why did I derail this monologue to that bit? Wasn't I talking about cranberry sauce? Oh, never mind. No one would read rants like this, anyway.

Anyway, I have to explain the rules, as did the CSC hosts who have passed the throne until it eventually comes to my grasp. Here's how this competition works: Everyone who wishes to enter must take a screenshot that they made which is relevant to the current category, the screenshot can be related to the title literally or abstractly, as long as you can give an explanation of why you say your screenshot relates to the category in hand and doesn't defy any of the rules stated below, it goes in. Make your screenshot as literal, creative or imaginative as you like - as long as it's related to the category in at least one way! OK, so you’ve got your screenshot all in and ready, what happens next? After the given time, which is usually 5 days if we've got enough entries to be competed (obviously it's not a competition if there's only one entry), the time for entrants will be closed, and then people who did not enter can vote for the screenshot they like. After around three days on average, the person with the most votes is the winner, and they chose the next category - which is why it is a continuous cycle!

There you have it! Enjoy the competition while it lasts!

_________CURRENT COMPETITION_________

337. Category: Wolf Pack - Graphical mods permitted: ?
Status: Voting (closes on the 14th of April at 11:59 PM forum time.)

  • Vardamir - 1 (Knaber)
  • Knaber - 3 (Mash, HockeySam18, John the Late)


  • No category may be used twice.
  • If a Category has not been used for 100 Rounds it CAN be used again.
  • You may only enter one screenshot per category.
  • You may only enter as an individual; no team efforts.
  • The previous winner cannot compete in the competition he/she set the category for. (For that person would of had an advantage otherwise)
  • In the event that the winner cannot choose the next category a: Super Special Bonkers Bonus Round” will happen, this basically means there is no category and any screenshot can be entered as long as it conforms to the other rules.
  • If there is a tie in the voting, the person who picked the category (last round's winner) will cast the tie-breaker vote.
  • No pasting pictures into your screenshots of anything, period (text is an exception).
  • When it comes to editing your screenshot in a program like Paint, you can remove toolbars/change them to a new border for decoration, but you may not use effects or the program to edit the base of your sceenshot. This includes creating comic-strip photos with multiple screenshots. Any text or effects must not interfere with the screenshot, and these will only be added for presentation, for example giving your screenshot on a wide-screen background would only add to presentation. Voters are reminded the content of the screenshot is what is being judged, not editing it afterward in a paint program.
  • No mapshots. (In other words, no using a full map shot of an entire scenario/map)
  • MODPACKS: The winner of the last round also selects whether mods including graphics are allowed. If he decides against it, no modpacks that add in new unit graphics are allowed. This includes downloads from The Blacksmith, or Steam Workshop. If he chooses that mods should be allowed in the following round, then any modpacks are allowed, even when they add graphics.
  • The use of AOK: HD Edition IS Allowed. The Use of new graphics from the expansions The Forgotten and African Kingdoms, however, falls under the restriction of a category with mods allowed.
  • Forgotten Empires counts as a mod in this regulation.
  • AokTS, Renaissance, GeniED, and other forms of data editing are allowed
  • When it comes to data editing you may use it to your advantage when making a screenshot however when it comes to creating and/or unlocking new/hybrid the usage of new SLPs is not allowed.
  • No taking screenshots from campaigns/scenarios that you did not create.
  • This is an open competition. No need to sign up, just post a screenshot that abides to the selected category.
  • Screenshots must be made only for this competition. No using screenshots previously taken for any reason. You may, however, take screenshots from your campaign in the works that you have announced, but it must be taken specifically for this competition.
  • The usual time for entries is 5 days, but if there have been less than 2 screenshots submitted, it will get extended.
  • Competition and voting statuses will close at 11:59pm forum time on the designated deadline.
  • The previous winner and the selector of the category MAY vote.
  • If you are participating in the current competition, you CAN vote for fellow contestants if you want (when you're feeling so humble), but you CAN NOT vote for yourself for obvious reasons.
  • No editing of your screenshot once it has been posted as an entry for the competition (no editing the content/scenery). However Editing typos/spelling errors in text included with/in your screenshot IS allowed
  • If you are caught trying to make smurf accounts or getting people to sign up to AoKH so they can vote for you, and they never post and they only use their registration to give you a vote, you will be disqualified from the week, and for a further length of time based on my discretion . All voters must have an open account at HG. Trying to fix the ballot is a very serious rule, and any attempt to break this rule will have serious consequences.
  • No flaming to other forummers. Criticism of people's work must be constructive.
  • Don't whine if you did not win, better luck next time.
  • Have fun, and try hard!

    _________Special Rounds_________

    We have decided to add some new Special one-off rounds to celebrate the work of some of the most commit AOK designers - The Modders. These people put years of work into making detailed graphics effectively giving the AOK player an almost brand new game to play. These Special Rounds celebrate the release of some of the biggest Mod Packs released to the AOKH Blacksmith. We are using these rounds as a way of celebrating the exception abilities of AOK Modders and the fantastic way that people are able to expand our beloved game even 10 years after it's initial release. It also opens up our long standing contest to those scenario designers who don't necessarily like the vanilla scenario editor of AOK.

    Each Special round focuses on one Mod Pack chosen by the Host. There are no theme's for these rounds however, each entry must show the new graphics and features of the Modpack.

  • Follow all CSC rules unless otherwise stated here.
  • There is no theme in the Special Rounds but you must...
    Use the Mod Pack chosen for the Special round
    Show at least one new graphic from the new Modpack
  • Anybody can enter a screenshot - Even if you won the previous round
  • These rounds are Special Rounds. The winner will not get to choose the new theme but instead, the winner of the round before will choose the theme.
  • If there is a Tie and the previous winner has enter a screenshot the voting will go to Deadlock and the head judge (the Host) will decide on the winning screenshot.

    _________Useful Info_________

  • To take a screenshot, press the "Print Screen" on your keyboard - the picture will be then saved under "Screenshots" in your AoK files (My Computer -> Progam Files -> Microsoft Games -> Age of Empires II -> Screenshot)
  • F11 removes the game time from view. F4 removes the player scores.

    @Bumis: That looks really bad.

    It's not valid for the contest at all, but seeing as you posted it, you obviously think it's a pretty nice screenshot. Here's why it isn't:

    1) Rock placement makes absolutely no sense. Geographically, Where is this map set? What kind of biome? Mixing old AoK rocks with TC rocks can only look acceptable in certain circumstances, for instance one individual rock on a pile of dirt.. Simulating.. well, a pile of dirt. With a few white rocks around the area on a beach, perhaps.

    What you have there are rocks strewn all over the place. Points for trying to give the map some variety, but it's the wrong kind. If you use white rocks, mix them with Piles of Stone. Keep brown rocks to the dirt where they look at home.

    2) You're using a texture pack. Not only that, but it's a bad texture patch. The water clearly doesn't match up with the waterfalls.

    3) The plant-life is boring. There's absolutely no use of plants, flowers or any other eye-candy that make those trees look like they are legit. Same goes for the rocks here - Placing a couple plants around a rock can give the impression it's not just landed there out of the sky before you took the picture.

    4) There's a flying lumber camp that looks completely out of place. The dock overlaps the house roof. The pier seems to be coming out from under the castle's stone walls. The roman ruins are out of place in that setting, and overlap the rocks a little. If you look directly at the castle's main door, it's in water. This gives me the impression that area is a wetlands - meaning a castle like that should of sunken into the wet mud, or slid down the cliffside.

    5) Very low quality cliffs, they look really bad and blurred.

    Overall, I think it's a good try. You (Or whoever designed the map) has definitely tried, when wanting to make it look pretty. Just a few little niggles as I described above.

    Hey, Tanks.

    While I like seeing forummers return, all you have been doing as of late was complaining, demanding, and criticising. I am sure you are not such a negative person, so maybe you could try to be a bit more positive in your posts?

    Bumis, it's in the rules that AoF and graphical mods are not allowed. Your screenshot is not eligible for the current round for that reason. If you just want to share a screenshot of your work, while not actually entering the competition, I recommend this thread.

    While he certainly gave hints on how one could improve the screenshot, the way he presented them was rather negative. Don't have much to add to Dev. And this is just one post, Tanks made quite a few other posts in other places that are as I wrote - complaining/demanding/criticising in nature.

    Don't get me wrong, I want to keep Tanks active here, but the attitude in his posts isn't exactly healthy to a good athmosphere in my opinion.

    So, we are tilted like Uranus in that universe?

    But yeah, bumis, if you make your entry on AoKHD you need to be full vanilla, no AoF and not graphic mods. Besides, while parts of the screenshot are good you really need to improve some areas, like map-copy. The map-copy stand out sorely in your picture, so you should on that.

    Besides, you could also remove the GUI on an image editor to make your screenshot look more neat.

    @John, I'm sorry that my posts are coming across like that.

    I can't tell you the way you're supposed to read my posts - and I appreciate that this is the internet where there's no such thing as 'tone of voice' or 'facial expression' (Emoticons? Do they count? You can easy use them sarcastically and people will still think you're serious.), but my attitude is usually quite cheery or sarcastic, with hints of serious or slapstick humor. I also over-exaggerate a lot, especially when it comes to pointing out bad things or generally saying a negative point, about anything.

    The criticism I gave Bumis, there, is mainly pointing out bad things - because in my opinion, there's not enough good to outweigh the bad. I'm not going to sugar-coat it, or beat-about-the-bush and be dishonest. If X looks like crap then I'll tell you.

    Which does indeed sound awfully negative, and I often come across as negative.

    But, I will provide constructive criticism. I'm not going to leave you with a blank statement that just says "This is crap", I'll tell you why it looks crap and how that can be helped.

    That's pretty solid reasoning, I think. I'd certainly prefer that sort of feedback - but maybe that's because I'm used to hockey coaches who tell you exactly how it is as well

    The key is that the feedback given was very detailed and insightful. He went ahead and said what's wrong, why, and how to fix it. Maybe it could be a little less negative at points, but on the bright side, after reading that, I'd know exactly what to do to make it better if I were the designer.

    I know that problem. My own texts have been misunderstood more often than not, so I can understand your point. The lack of pronounciation or emotion in text makes it quite hard to have everyone understand the same intention and meaning in it. The language barrier existing for some people here can make it additionally hard to get sarcasm or slapstick humour. (Even if one's english is fine, one might not be used to english proverbs or humour.) I think we can agree though that it might be helpful to stress negative points a little less when criticising something. Like "your screenshot could use some improvement" instead of "that looks really bad". (Unless the matter is something important, then one should always point out everything, and clearly so. But a screenshot... isn't.) I hope you can understand what I mean.
