    Ah! I see. Those guys aren't some kinda newfangled SF fighters (which doubtless would have been vastly inferior to the ones I grew up with! :p), their from the web comic. DOH! Took me a bit of searching to figure that one out. :eek:

    Anyway, here you go. Good images of individual characters are few and far between. I did the best I could with what I could scavenge up. Sorry if all the people you wanted aren't there. Hope you like it.

    You REALLY should have the save routine down by now, so...

    Hey - Maybe I'm just a little burned out tonight, but I'm just not getting the arrangement your asking for. I'll take a fresh look tomorrow and see if I'm thinking more clearly, but I'd say chances are good I'll have more questions.

    Yeah, I didn't really think they were - Sorry again. It's just that the pics I could find of those characters were small and only parts of each of them were visible or in wildly differing styles. :( Would have been a little much for me to make a cohesive grouping of those little bits & pieces.

    But hey - At least you got something you like! Thanks for letting me know.

    no I totally understand, I know how hard it is to try and find seperate *clean* pics of the main characters that *ARENT* part of the comic strip itself...which would then involve cutting them carefully out etc...

    trust me, I know, I tried to do something like this myself a few days ago and gave up lol

    and actually the wallpaper you've done for me is now making me re-evaluate how I have my icons etc now just so I can now maximise the amount of wallpaper showing :D:D

    No worries. I only got about 4 hours of sleep last night, so I'm just as burned out and not focused. Not to mention my brain practically died when I saw the amount of work I had to do over the summer for my AP English 4 class (22 sections of the bible, about 13 stories for mythology, and 3 books plus assignments). There went most of my summer. >.>

    I threw this together quickly using an old wallpaper you made me for me, hopefully this makes a little more sense then my rambles.

    Except the shelves would be raised a little bit to accommodate the Sense dock. If I get around to flashing the ROM sometime after school, I'll post a screenshot to show you where the dock is.

    I think it's the left to right focal point in the picture that makes the scrollability of the wallpaper really stand out. It's something you probably already know but I haven't seen any wallpapers from anywhere make use of it this well.

    something to consider in your future projects, maybe.

    I had to google that as my Street Fighter knowledge has not been used in....well since...well lets just say a long time ago...

    and to be fair, I couldn't care bout the fighters and their 'sexy' moves :p I just like how eyebeam did it with the fade and how the implied scrolling is in it..

    my ctrl alt del is better though :D:p

    I'll see about doing those as I get some free time. Stay tuned...

    Also, what are the button combos for those moves?

    @ Toasty -

    Alright, here's what I'm thinking. Hows that general idea work for you? Any ideas on what else I should do here?

    The Scorpion harpoon one is a great idea. I can see it being more challenging though, as the hadouken is visually more dramatic than most other long range moves so it's probably easier to make a dramatic looking wallpaper with it.

    But eyebeam has surprised me before so let's see what he pulls out of his photowizardry hat.

    Looks great. Let me add the icons in and I'll post the (semi finished) product in a few minutes.

    Scorpion's Harpoon - back, back, low punch
    Subzero Freeze - back, down, forward, low punch

    those are from the original genesis and snes versions of MK1

    Heres the wallpaper with the icons added in. I probably didn't do the best job of adding them, but I don't think I did horrid either. :p
    It also occurred to me that I can place a widget of some kind "on top" of both of the shelves. Not sure what yet, but I'm sure I'll find something.

    Ok, that's pretty good. Now the question is can you get the icons to line up when the wallpaper is on the phone.

    And, what else, if anything do you see happening with this one? I was definitely going to add some light effect to the background - Any other ides?

    I thought ahead this time. I plan on just adding the icons to the finished product, and then using either a transparent icon or transparent Minimalistic Text widget that opens the app in question. Either one would work.
    As for other ideas, I don't really have any right now. Depending on what I stumble upon as far as skins for Sense, I might have an idea for making the clock look like a part of the background, but that can come later. The background light idea is fine, and if you think of anything else you think would look good, feel free to toss it in there. Tis your creation. :p

    Alright, I see how you're doing it (I think!).

    Here's a more final version with light effects and I also made the shelves just a little smaller to leave you with a little more open real estate. Let me know if/when you decide any changes are needed.

    Hello! Just a small request today.... could I have the dark, flowery background you have used with some of my previous requests? That would be so pretty all by itself! Thank you, have a great day! No hurry, as always.
