I thought the same, maybe adding pages with the artwork and different designs (=different typography, different background colors...).

good thinking there rotonen totaly forgot about that.
Let the players take part and contribute with wall papers for login/loading screen.
It will make them add somethign as well :) .
Perhaps a login/loading wall paper contest?

I think Irukard may still know the font he used for "The Mana World", as in all the versions I made I've always used his vector shape.

The font used for the subtitle is Dustismo Italic.

Ok I've uploaded vector of just the title here:
http://www.lindeijer.nl/~bjorn/themanaworld_title.svg

It's in InkScape svg format. Oh I'm curious if it shows correctly in SeaMonkey or the new FF beta. :-)

As for which font package, on Arch Linux /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/dustismo_italic.ttf is owned by ttf-cheapskate 2.0-3

(If anyone has hosting that doesn't resize big images, feel free to repost the picture in the forums)

Crude; not a final draft. If enough people say they like it i'll finish it out.

Oh P.S. it's totally ripped from that pixelate-me guy's picture.

Ultim ncie work i really like that login wall paper ;) !!!
that one was nice and fun reminded me alot of Snes as well :)

sorry elven i prefer that one before the present one. the current one is to much like RO i prefer this one because it refers alot more to the game and
it also had the snes style to it ^^ a bit more work and imo we shoudl have a winner but thats my opinion as always :D

An easy way to contribute would be to go to our wiki, fetch our conceptual art pieces from there and then gimp up nice login screens and/or desktop bagrounds from them.

Just remembered about this one...the one made way back in the day by SuriKatta: http://themanaworld.sourceforge.net/arc ... ingcol.jpg
If we go the route of having a variety of login screens, I think that would be great to include. I still have regular contact with SuriKatta, so I can check and make sure it'd be allright to use it.
