Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Make your mark at PAX!

So, we had some ad space reserved on the bus that was going to go to Microsoft, but they decided we were too good for them, or something. So, there loss is your gain. We’re offering space on the side of our bus to put (almost) whatever you want.
Since the bus will be driving down public spaces, we cannot allow pornography, or indecent images. Though we might concider some tasteful FF imagery.

Image Requirements:
Size: 8”x8”
Resolution: 300 dpi
Format: TIFF
Color: CYMK

Please e-mail sean@gamertransit.com with the image, your full name, and your P-A forum name.

If you wish to donate to the PAX Bus, that’s great, but it’s not required. But if you do want to donate, we accept PayPal, cash, and beer.

Oh yeah, check out the site too: http://gamertransit.com/

    That's okay, the people who do will understand what I'm talking about.

    We (doczero and I) are the crazy fools retrofitting an airport shuttle bus for gaming on the way to PAX via Portland. We've been keeping quiet about the project mainly because we had to make sure we'd actually pull it off.

    so you're trying to pull of what the supertrip couldn't but on a smaller scale?

  • tmonkeytmonkey Registered User
    edited July 2005
    We were thinking about doing the full trip, but the size, cost, and time required to do that from Portland just wasn't feasible. This is much more reasonable, but it's still a rather large undertaking.

    Also, what route will this bus drive, and where will it be during the course of the EXPO? More info please!

    I sent my TIFF in. It's 22Mb unzipped, 1.3 zipped. Anyone understand how that's possible?

    If it fits into an 8"x8" square, we'll put it on. The bus will be going from Portland, OR to Bellvue, WA via the Supertrip route. The bus will be outside the Doubletree and possibly the Medenbaur Center for the duration of PAX. We'll try to find some visable places to park it that won't get us towed or ticketed.

    Brilliant. I forgot about that. I've done the same and my resultant file is teeny too. (It's on the way Sean).

    As far as why? If you have a lot of the same color it will treat it like a jpeg or other compression tool but without the loss. Basically it identifies colors and assigns them into groups of same. So when it opens the file it simply instructs the rebuild to put the same green or whatever in all of the places that that green belonged. Does that make sense?

    As a foot note if your image is fairly detailed or is color intensive the file size after compression should go way up.

    do you think that i might be able to get the logo from my gamer faction that is going to be on our t-shirts this year? it's nothing bad, just an awesome looking logo, and i am sure that it fits in an 8"x8" square.

    Send it in! Like I said, we'll put pretty much anything on there, FOR FREE, just send it in! There's 48 spaces total on the bus, and so far I've filled 2!

    Updated the gallery with more images of the bus so you can see what you'll be having your image on. Bus will actually be metallic grey, that's just the primer on there.

    Sweet, I think I can get a picture for our gaming club at PSU together for the bus. Would be pretty good advertisement for it since its going to be mostly in the NW.
    I'll try to get an image submitted soon.

    I have a draft ready, thought I might get a critique from some other forumers. Here's a really scaled down .jpg of the image:

    Does the layout look good? Is it to busy? Do I need a catch phrase?

    Any helpful comments would be appreciated.

    Lots of spots open. I mean LOTS! If we run over keep in mind the bus has two billboard areas. If we get some really GREAT stuff I could be persuaded to print both sides.


    LogicLB! Looks good. I may want to blow that one up to four slots.

    We may be doing some shuttle service with the bus, but it won't be the 'official' service that Khoo has arranged. We're very unofficial and fun.

    I go to DeVry, and all beta'd that game a few months ago. Is it really that good in release? It sucked some ass last time I saw it.

    Did anyone else think of wearing custom shirts/hats/tags with their screenname on them? I wouldn't mind being called Zyph for four days straight.

    Considering that Jake is my nickname here at home it wouldnt be totally inapporiate. But wearing a t-shirt or hat with my nickname on it would be totally LAME. Although rockin out a Kanamit t-shirt would be awesome.

    last year, the clan of pwl made official clan shirts that everyone wore. of course, thats only like 8 people, but we still did it. this year we are making shirts again, and btw, they do have our gamer tag's on them.
