Honestly I thought the current spash was pretty cool. But ok, new is good too.

Offsetrange @ 25 2009 02:55 pm

Sounds good... But in my opinion, something RuneScape related tied into the design is not a plus at all, and would just make the overall design look worse. I will probably design a couple, but I doubt any will be anywhere near as good as the current one .

ram @ 25 2009 12:19 pm

hey about this being 3rd party software y should it be against the rules it's not like it's autoing or the new big problem in rs afking(away from keyboard training for those of u who dont know)

freak54 @ 25 2009 02:33 am

awsome ive got a cool idea, but do we have to design the progress bar also

Magi I wildy @ 24 2009 10:13 am

If you read on forums, JMods says its 3rd party software and its NOT legal!:p

Pete n00b @ 18 2009 05:49 am

Greeen @ 18 2009 12:43 am

I was wondering what the unit for 300 x 305 is (cm?)

Staff Edit: Pixels

Gat @ 17 2009 02:10 am

The current one is pretty good, lol. I think it would be hard to design a better one.

Cape of food @ 16 2009 03:08 pm

i am a professional photoshop user, i would be happy to make one for swiftkit, i just hope it would match up to some of the other designs you have recieved.

cody @ 14 2009 10:30 pm

Dylan @ 14 2009 09:14 pm

Zac @ 14 2009 05:40 am

I might just have to work on one, considering I lag to much for the official Machinima contest, this may be better for me. :)

the questioner @ 14 2009 02:21 am
