Wallpaper Contest! [Entry Period Ended]
Hello Captains!

For the first time ever, we're holding a 'Wallpaper Contest'! Have an in-game screen that you've taken that you think should be on every player's desktop? Submit it today for a chance to win an awesome prize!

Contest Begins: Now
Contest Ends: September 20, 2013 at 11:59 AM PDT

Contest Rules:

  • Participants may submit one (1) original, unaltered in-game screenshot by the date and time listed above.
    • The image should be linked in a reply to this post -- this will count as an official entry. If you are posting the link in [IMG][/IMG] tags, please also be sure to include the direct link to the image.
  • The image should be a minimum size of 1920x1200.
    • To take an image that is sized larger than your monitor, you can try using the "renderscale" chat command: /renderscale X
      • X = the scale number (i.e. 1.5 = 150% of normal scale, 2 = 200%, etc.).
      • It's best to start at 1.5 to see if your machine can handle the larger render.
      • Going over 3 is not recommended as most machines will be unable to support it and your game will crash.
        • Don't forget to revert back to the original scale after taking your screen! /renderscale 1
        • For advice from our art team on taking screenshots, check out this archived post.
  • We'll add the STO logo to the winning image, so please do not add one yourself.
  • Winning images will be selected by the PWE Community Team.


One (1) First Place prize: The one (1) winning image* will be featured in the official Wallpapers section of the site, with the creator's forum name holding the byline, as well as in a front-page news post. The 1st place winner will also receive 625 STO Promo Points for the C-Store.

Three (3) Runner-up prizes: A costume of their choice: ToS Formal Uniform, ToS Medical Uniform, ToS Tunic Uniform, or Enterprise Era Uniform.

Good luck, and let's boldly go where no one has gone before!

*The winning image may be adjusted, edited or altered by the PWE Community Team in order to feature it as a wallpaper. This may include cropping, lighting adjustments, logo additions, etc.

I use the following macro for screenshots.

/bind "PrtScrn" "renderscale 2 $$ screenshot_jpg $$ renderscale 1"

You can change the key and the jpg to something else to your liking.

Can't wait to see the submissions.

gah... only ONE? This is going to be tougher than I thought...

EDIT: I don't know if anyone else does this, but my Windows 7 desktop is set to choose a different random image from my STO screenshots folder every hour. I've got well over a thousand screenshots in there...
