Yes, it will be out of proportion. But if you use a 16:9 screenmode, then it can look right, as that screen also changes the proportions.

Just added some game company logos, but yeah should have probably at least added Sensible.

Ok, new file "Amiga.iff" (just the Amiga computer) is now in The Zone!

Hopefully this will show up on your real Amiga; used PaintShop Pro to convert to .IFF instead of PhotoShop

Nope, but let me do the same process as what I did with the "Amiga" computer only i.e. use PaintShop Pro for the final conversion to .IFF

...be right back

Thanks man. You are the best Now, it would be interesting if you make all these backgrounds as 4096 colours (Maybe full colour 16.8 million) or something. The quality should be better even if I run them in 64 or 256 colours.

I said that the original image, stretched, can look right if you use a 16:9 screenmode.

This is with 24 bits, RTG.



Edit: Sorry for the edits, but I had to take a real photo instead of a screenshot.

If you notice, in 16:9 the icons look wider, but the wallpaper looks right.

Edit: This is using 800x600.

So if you are using 16:9 then you will surely like to have it this way.

Hello turrican9,

Played around with the images and have now created ones that are:

... roughly 4096 colours.
... left as is; full colours.

I also messed around for fun and created this very simple "Blood Money" wallpaper:



"wallpaper.zip" is now in The Zone! that contains:

... AmigaComputer_4096Colours.iff
... AmigaComputer_FullColour.iff
... Amiga_Background_4096Colours.iff
... Amiga_Background_FullColour.iff
... Blood Money_256Colours.iff
... Blood Money_4096Colours.iff
... Blood Money_64Colours.iff
... Blood Money_FullColour.iff
