This Menu Background directly violates the rule of "must include characters and items from in-game", and I fully accept that. Here are my thoughts behind its creation: it would be really cool if the final awards could be announced like this. I don't care if its my design that makes it in (I'm not looking to win an award off of this entry), but a special background for the Haxxy contestants/winners that could be used for a couple days in-game would be sweet. :yaymoney:

I don't know how text is supported, so I threw some "sample text" on it to demonstrate what a potential message could be.

Feel free to give feedback, as this is a slightly unconventional entry.

Haxxy: head copied from the forums, everything else (heavily) modified by myself. I used a reference picture for the pose/colors from this year's Haxxy poster.

Switch the colors of the background-beams so that the options and such are easier visible.

Talk with Haxton and see what colors you should change the background, my eyes hurt. Also, very cool, maybe you should remove the "dick"(or wtf is that near it). What's that in his hand? Nevermind, it looks cool as fuck.

Well, current background doesn't follow that rule either, so yeah.

Also, like with all menu backgrounds, please post the image without the text.

This is neat, we should totally use it.

By the way, uh, did you check the contrast of white and orange text on the bottom left-hand corner? We could cheat like we do with the current background and add a semi-transparent black rectangle at the bottom right to add contrast to the link, but I'd rather not.

Edit: We could do the same trick we did with the current one and use spaces to shift the text to the left, actually.

did you know that spinning stars work like this???

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. execute_strings on fire off the shoulder of Overmars. I watched object-beams glitter in the dark near the room_goto_fix. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears...in...rain. Time to die.
