Scum? I don't think so. "Master" is more like it.

Coincidence?
« on: July 10, 2007, 10:37:00 pm »

Hey, I was just started another run-through, and I'm not sure if this is just a coincidence or not, but does anyone else notice that Canopus I looks like it has an upside-down smiley face in it. What I'm asking is, if anyone else has seen that, if they think maybe it may have been put there on purpose to see how many people notice it? :p

I have no idea what you mean. Where is this smiley supposed to be? Could you show it in a screenshot?

Um...I feel really dumb, but how do you take a screenshot?

I'm not a Windows user myself, but iirc you just press ALT-PRINTSCRN, which saves a screenshot of the current window to the clipboard, which you can then paste in a painting program, where you can save it to file.

Probably just a minor shading issue. I expect if you look that closely at all other blue planets the same effect will be visible.

I thought that too, but with every single one I've checked, there hasn't been another planet with the same shading. Meh, whatever...

I bet it won't even show up if you use a different scaler.

There's nothing special about that planet codewise btw.

Yeah, I know Canopus is worthless, I just saw it and thought...nevermind.
