Talk:Title screen


To do: Shareware Doom, better version of Registered Doom.

Do you guys think that these should all be split into their own articles? I personally don't think we should.

Should mod\TC title screens be put here? What about Heretic/HeXen/Strife et cetera, and Doom 3 + ROE? It would be nice to have one large repository of title screens.

My take:
Yes, include other commercial games (like Heretic).  No, do not split each one into its own article — this page is more about the concept and code details of a title screen than it is about the fact that each game had a different one (of course they did; what was the alternative?) or the details of the differences (which anybody can see for themselves in the images).  We do have some precedent for a gallery of this size.
No, do not include mods/TCs.  There are way too many, the screens are usually already displayed in the mod/TC article, and (artistic labor aside) it is at least as easy to add a new screen as to change the level names, which I don't think we will ever have an article on.  Do link to our editing tutorial that tells you how to make your own title screen (which probably also tells you how to change the level names).

I agree, especially about mods/TCs. If we start putting the titlescreens from mods on here, everyone will want to put their titlescreen on here. Fraggle 11:13, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
