Screenshots
Ok My problem with screenshots at the moment is not just hosting but also detail.

1.does anyone know a good screenshot hosting site (not Villagephotos)

2.Although bmps are more detailed than jpgs and gifs, they are much larger files. My point is that is there a way to get a detailed picture like a bmp but small in size (at least smaller than a bmp)
This is for giant screenshot pictures, not mini-charater pictures.


RPG

1. I have seen rpg open sources and games which have a rpg system but they are no good (the open sources). Does anyone know how to a rpg system (say how can i get a attack of "8" to fight a defence of "6" and come out as a total damage (not just )

2. I know it can be done but does anyone have a save position open source (mmf or TGF (i prefer TGF))

3. How can you do a monster raisng example? keeping the same monsters in battle all the time, it uses ini files but i dont have a clue.

Most of this I just said doesn't make much sence come to think about it, so if anyone can unstand these problems, please help me.

Thankyou

Use gifs instead of bmps, that should bring the size down.

If you use something like paint to make jpegs or gifs they'll be of low quality, if you have a better application, e.g. Paint Shop Pro, you can change the compression value, as kruml said, and you should be able to make a pretty good quality image, but with a smaller file size

Grazzum, pres the Print Screen key on your keyboard, or press Alt+Print Screen for just the window.
www.1asphost.com is a good screenshot hosting site that is free and allows direct linking.
Save Position: Shouldn't be to hard. Save X Pos of object to Item XObj in INI file, then save Y Pos of object to Item YObj in the INI file.

Screenshots
i use geocities but change the name of the picture to picture.txt (it doesnt have to be called picture)

but villagephoto works for me

rpg

the pictures get saved to the clipboard (memory)
use the paste option in paint or a different program to see it.

try getting a program called irfanview it can save to loads of filetypes.

gifs use 256 colours but are compressed better than 256 colour bmps
my games all use 256 colour mode so i use gifs.


i dont know if you use higher colours in your games spiderhead but if you do mabye its better to use jpegs anyway.

What you are asking for is an "Algorithm". What stats are you using in the RPG? (I.E. Strength, Defense, Initiative, etc. ).
They are usually something like... p1Strength x 2 - p2defense = Damage . That one really sucks, i don't even know if it works.
If you look up a Article I wrote like a year ago about RPG's it explains Algorithms and how to make one that works.
The Article is called "Creating an RPG" . It also explains how to make RPG speaking windows and stuff.

EDIT - Here, I found it: http://www.create-games.com/article.asp?id=375
