Like Old Games: SPACE SHOOTER

Theme by OPTIMUS
7412-SPACESHOOTER

Old game style theme with 6 HD/SD “levels”. Totally handmade icons, sounds & backgounds elements.

NOTE: I had to create almost one thousand elements for icons, backgrounds, ect (not to mention the textures for the rocks) and mount them all one by one in HD and SD; so, if something is missing or not positioned/showed correctly, please let me know. Enjoy!

I don’t use Gimp, I use RealWorld Paint.COM…
However, I think there should be an option in the image edit (or properties, or something like that) which allows you to change color resolution. Or maybe, when you open an image to edit, there’s an option to choose the initial resolution.
Sorry, I never used Gimp, so I don’t know exactly, but try to search what I just told you.

I use GIMP imaging software. I heard you use GIMP too. How do I change my icons to 8 bit color?

Hey guys! Leaving work, I bought GoW 3, but I waited to play it (it = the game… :D): as you know, revenge should be enjoyed not only cold but also veeeery calm… ๐Ÿ˜› Now I played just for 20 minutes: hoooooly shit!!! If this is just the beginning, I wonder how is the rest of the game!!! Unbelievable but true, it doesn’t need installation (fortunately, ’cause my HDD is about to explode!) and I was right: when you’re finishing a boss, you see the whole massacre from his eyes… WOW! This game seems to be really epic! Now it’s… Read more »

it = the game

Dahl

have’nt seen the new trailer yet, but if it’s as good as the demo it’s a must!

yogosan

yep, thats what i meant by ” Kratos will be arriving at ps3-themes headquarters shortly”

OPTIMUS

Got it: that “an” tricked me… ๐Ÿ˜›
Well, sometimes can happen that some of my creations (like Welcome Slim theme, for example) do not like me at all…

Ok, the “team” is expanding! But I wonder what happened to Khaloood…

Hey guys! Have you seen the latest trailer of GoW3? Simply epic! And I hope the game really is: usually, when expectations are too high, also the risk of being disappointed may be high…
By the way, Yogosan: have you uploaded the theme?

yogosan

everybody speaks english these days!

Dahl

by an i mean can, and it was meant like how can a person not like it, not how can YOU not like hehe, i’m from Denmark ๐Ÿ™‚

OPTIMUS

Thanks again, Dahl!
Hey, I was wondering: where are you from?
I know that Yogosan is Irish, Khaloood is Arabic and I’m Italian… and you?

P.S. O_o I don’t like what?

Dahl

how an you not like it? and by seeng your other themes believe me i do not underestimate neither you nor Yogo, you are some of the best theme makers ๐Ÿ™‚

OPTIMUS

BWAHAHAHA! (satanic laugh) Don’t underestimate the power of PlaySt… ehm… cough! cough! ๐Ÿ˜› Don’t underestimate my abilities, Dahl… ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve seen a single episode, but I noticed a lot of stuff (how do you think I made the hospital logo or the badges for J.D. and Carla?) and since you’re a fan of this series, you certainly know there are a lot of sounds that can be used: the jingle between a scene and the other, or that funny sound that can be heard when they jump quickly from a character to another… Well, I could use it… ๐Ÿ™ However,… Read more »

Dahl

hehe the it will be on at next update, can’t wait:) Optimus it don’t mean a thing that there is no sounds on the Scrubs theme, it’s still great, and what sounds would you put in if you could? ๐Ÿ˜›

OPTIMUS

Too bad! ๐Ÿ™ IMHO, it was a brilliant idea: they didn’t think even for the official theme…!
Ok, I warn the headquarters leaders that the bomb is triggered! ๐Ÿ˜€

yogosan

Kratos will be arriving at ps3-themes headquarters shortly…

yogosan

okay, i did make a chains version of the backgrounds, but it doesn’t look as good as my first idea. it’s really not worth putting in at all. i’ll stick with what I have. im gonna upload now

yogosan

i’ll try my best

OPTIMUS

You know Dahl, I’m glad to know that you’re one of the few who appreciate the sounds in a theme: this makes me think that maybe I could do sounds for your Scrubs theme ๐Ÿ™
Well, it will be for the next time…

Maybe you’re right, Yogosan. As I told you, not knowing what’s your basic idea on how should be the theme, it’s difficult to suggest something…
But I really like your idea of the icons hanging from chains! Very original, I find. DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! ๐Ÿ˜€

yogosan

I think I should stick with one style for the GOW3 theme, no extra variations. I honestly can’t come up with anything as good that fits in. which means I could upload it today, unless someone has a magical idea, which is unlikely considering Im the only one who knows what it looks like. there will be about 6/7 HD backgrounds, using the best wallpapers and screens I could find. so unless anyone thinks I should make another variation of the backgrouns (like i did with my origins theme) I guess i’m done. I really wanted tio do another variation,… Read more »

Dahl

and by htat i mean that…

Dahl

i’ve never encountered anoying sounds, but i’ve tried some themes where the sounds where to long, and HTAT can be very annoying!!

OPTIMUS

Yogosan mean that often the sounds tend to be unnatural, not faithful to their original version: this leads to possible distorsions or too loud and/or metallic sound effects. Consequently, according to the audio decoding type of each TV, it can happen that someone will hear the sounds too loud and distorted, while someone else will hear them too low and indistinct and someone will hear them good. This may also depend on other factors such as the type of program and codecs used to create the sounds. However, the important thing is to pay attention to lower the sound effect… Read more »

Dahl

unless its a extremely high pitch sound i still don’t get it ๐Ÿ˜›

yogosan

no so much loud, but…. distorted? i think thats the word, high pitched. something like that ๐Ÿ™‚

Dahl

haha great idea optimus ๐Ÿ˜› how can sounds be to loud? you can just turn down your tv? well some things i will never understand…

yogosan

there was one other idea i had with the homerow icons but it would be pointless uploading 2 themes, just with different homerow icons. I kinda added the idea into the backgrounds, you will know what i mean when you see it

yogosan

i tried adding sounds to older themes, but it just didn’t sound natural, so i stopped. even when m0dus got those perfect mgs4 sounds into his theme they weren’t appreciated, they were very loud i suppose. will probably be finished shortly. i dont any perspective work is gonna do it, but i’ll certainly give it a shot

OPTIMUS

Got it!
Ok, then… leave your computer always ON :D, so you can come to me or Yogosan more frequently: as you see, we always have something to talk about…
And thanks again! I always do everything with my hands, even the sounds, although sometimes they are not appreciated… ๐Ÿ™

Dahl

also nice sounds ๐Ÿ™‚

Dahl

Well i check themes on my ps3, and comment on my computer, and sometimes when i see a good theme i wanna comment, my computer is off and i forget ๐Ÿ˜› But still loving it!

OPTIMUS

Yep, I’ve noticed! Even the one I found is at an angle, but with a bit of perspective work you could “turn” it…
I know this IS God of War, but… what “more” do you want? Hey, wait a minute! I have a cosplayer friend: I could ask him to dress up as Kratos for you… ๐Ÿ˜›
However, I can’t wait to see your theme.

Thanks Dahl! Where have you been?

Dahl

Nice one Optimus ๐Ÿ˜€

yogosan

everything is “PERFECT” as it is now, but this is god of war, and i want more!!

yogosan

i get what you mean, and i have images that fill all those needs, except the ultimate ed box. have you noticed that every picture of it is at an angle, i have done alot of searching, and thats the only one i’v seen…

OPTIMUS

Well, I think the scene I imagined might make a good impression, but I also realized that it might be a little bit difficult to create, considering that explain it with mere words may not give the idea. However… Kratos is on the far right: a bloody battle rages in the background (behind the battle, there are the titans) but he’s standing there, careless of danger, holding his blades menacingly as he looks to the left. He’s looking toward a rock taller than him, on which rests… whatever you want (but I was still thinking the Ult Ed Box, now… Read more »

yogosan

i would like to hear this vision, i can add moooooore

OPTIMUS

Well, I had another “vision” last night :D, but that’s ok.
Then, I’ll wait to see what came out from the magic hat… ๐Ÿ˜›

yogosan

just made some fairly….. amazing backgrounds ๐Ÿ˜›

OPTIMUS

Thanks Yogosan. Well, you’re taking me off guard, because I don’t know what’s your basic idea… However, as first wallpaper, I’d be thinking about the Ultimate Edition Box, set in the foreground with a mighty Kratos that stands in the background inside one of the game environments (there will be a lot of pictures like that, I suppose): this should make sense the power of the character and the game itself. Furthermore, I think that the special decorations of the Ultimate Edition Box should blend well with the style of your icons… Anyway, if you tell me what’s your basic… Read more »

yogosan

just 2 give you a reference, i am using the same home row icons from my first gow3 theme. any ideas on how i should integrate them into the background? i have one solid idea so far

yogosan

nice job, this must have taken a long time. any ideas for the gow3 wallpapers, any input is appreciated, i have a few ideas but sometimes, hours of work just leads to nothing. i waanna fill the theme with wallpapers, with a few different designs, like the 2 designs i had with the dragon age theme
