Ok ive been reading this site recently (www.vgcats.com) and it gave me an idea to make some TW comics, i noticed that Bigger has already done somthing similar so sorry for doing a similar thing but i had already made it before i noticed Biggers Very Happy...Well anyway i hope you like the first one.

That was really good, centor. But i would consider submitting future comics in a jpg format so they load quicker... Cool

I'm stupid.. what's the difference between BMP and JPG? BMP makes it larger file size by so much.. JPG makes it lower and it's still the same..

BMP's load every pixel seperately... JPG tend to give an image a bit of a blur (totally a technical term) and... im not sure how to explain why that makes the filesize smaller... any graphic designers in the house? Laughing

I found a fatal flaw in this... there's no pvp on training planet... so why run?

I'm not a graphic designer, but I'll give it a try anyway Smile

You're absolutely right about BMP, it stores the color of each pixel in the image, so file size is basically determined by width x height x number of possible colors to choose from. The downside of it is you get no compression of the file size, but in return, there's no loss of quality.

JPEG (or JPG) on the other hand is a compression algorithm designed for use with photo type images, as in images with lots of colors and smooth transitions, as opposed to drawings, logos and other images with fewer colors/larger areas with the exact same color.
Not sure exactly how it works, but instead of storing each pixel, it looks at a larger area and stores information about how the color changes from one end of that area to the other end. The end result is an image file that takes up less space, but it is not an exact copy of the original image. The size/quality ratio is set when the image is saved as a jpeg, and can be set anywhere between tiny/crappy, to huge/perfect.

Hope that made any sense at all.. Confused

Great comic. 3 and a half thumbs up. One question though.

Is'nt the training planet non pvp?

bah I guess It's just me who noticed that... but then again that would've ruined the "humor" of the topic.
