View Full Version : The JK2.net Banner

Well, first post on the new forums, but hopefully this message doesn't sound demeaning in any way.

I was just curious as to why the banner for a post ROTJ, Kyle Katarn-based game features characters from Episode I- The Phantom Menace.

Not to say that the banner is poor, far from it. In fact, its slick, well-designed, and seamless in quality. However, it seems a tad misplaced. I know the site has just now been launched, and I've probably set myself up for flames aplenty, but I just thought I'd comment on it :)

Other than that, spotless work across the board.

Suggestion for a header banner? Perhaps an evolution collage (from left to right) of the Dark Forces Kyle Katarn, then the Jedi Knight Kyle Katarn, and then the Jedi Outcast (JK2) Kyle Katarn. Just an idea :)

Flames...no I agree. The characters are misplaced indeed.

Why is there an altimeter to the left if there is no need to a craft's wings level in space. Better yet, what is level in space?

Just wait for them to release some JK2 screenshots and more info the banner will change you will see

I'd be more than willing to try to make a banner if I can reacquire my copy of Adobe Photoshop that I misplaced, if the webmasters are interested in me trying out such a project :)

There is a banner contest. Look on the main page.

I thought it was a button contest, for advertising on other sites

When will I ever learn.

We are still playing around with the logo, and although we have only announced a button contest feel free to <a href=mailto:staff@jediknightii.net”>submit</a> banners as well.

It's not an altimeter, it's an artificial horizon. It looks cool, but why is it there?

BTW I like the banner as is. It seems kind of '70s-style classic era.' Keep it as is!

Apparently that’s Aristotle’s “prop”. Personally I think that’s his favorite part of the site. :)

Personally, I like it. It has more color than the red and gold that's up there now.

I like the direction you're going, but don't cover up the logo and maybe clean it up a little. :)

the problem with that banner is you don't know if those charactors will be in DF2, I mean, you did sorta cut their asses up into kibbles-n-bits in JK1 :D

i like that one just clean it up and maybe shrink the people a bit and it should own.

Ooo. Keep the Moldy Crow though. That looks nice. :)

06-02-2001, 02:23 AM
Ooo. I like the Moldy Crow. Have that in the banner!

Bart, why do you insist upon posting the same thing three times?

Ki-Adi-Mundi
06-02-2001, 09:45 PM
I don't like the current one. But who cares what I think?

Ki-Adi-Mundi
06-02-2001, 09:51 PM
I think bart wants that 100th post.

I don't like the moldy crow. And Jerec isn't going to be in jk2. Hey Sith, do try the thing that Qet Remel first suggested. The 'evolution' thing. You have DF Kyle on the left, DF:JK2 Kyle in the middle, and JK:JO Kyle on the right.

I'm not overly enamoured of the current banner either, but now some screenshots are starting to see the light of day, we have a bit more JK II-specific stuff to go on, so I'm sure folks will start to come up with some cool designs.

It looks god Sith, but maybe you could do what Ki Adi says, but adding it the moldy crow :)

hmmm
Or maybe a dark trooper, then Jerec, and then a shadow of the unknown enemy

And you could change the phrase "Your Star Wars Gaming Source"
isnt it the same it says at jk.net?

Maybe something like "Your Jedi Outcast Source" ;)
