Notice Board - Some things you should take note of
  Please do not do the requests submitted on my thread, no matter how good you are please show some respect. If you feel you're up to it, open a thread of your own. I spent time building this up from scratch.
  Every emblem you obtain from this thread that is posted by me is most probably in PNG file format hosted by Imageshack. Thus you need to convert it to BMP before it can be used. Under 'Tutorials and Guides', there will be a short instruction as to how to convert your file format from PNG to BMP using MS Paint.
  I should win a prize for this massive thread that has helped RMS earned more members and recognition through google search. You reading this Riotblade/YC? LOL



--------------------Request Submission Form--------------------

1] Name Of Your Guild
2] Any unique design you might like
3] Whether your guild's initials are to be included.
4] Provide a workable Picture, try to avoid JPEG image if possible, because from experience, they tend to be poor in quality. PNG makes the best. (DO READ Sub-category 'Realistic Request'!!!!)




--------------------Realistic Request--------------------

Ok, I am not trying to be strict here and make things easier for me, I believe that creativity is at it's best when there's no boundaries. But I also believe that taking up a request from a person that wants the picture of Santa Claus in the middle, and his reindeer by the left, a candy bag to his right, and finally your family photo at the background is... ...retarded.

It's like making a picture out of 24x24 Lego blocks. If you seriously get down and try to do it, you will understand how difficult it is to make very huge defined pictures with color blocks. I am no Magician, I like you, is restrained to physical restrictions.

Here is a good example, a nice picture with low definition but still clear:

(this picture is 111x118  Width x Height)

But to maintain the clarity and size of the picture, i can either,
1) Crop out a 24x24 portion for best definition (enlarging the picture will create a un-defined edge)
2) Crop out around 50x50 for larger display area of the picture and then minimize to 24x24, resulting in lower quality
3) Directly minimize it to 24x24 if your guild name is 'YouCan'tSeeWhat'sMyEmblem'

Ignore the last option... But here's the result after i crop certain portion of the picture to make it a balance between option 1 & 2 (28x28 crop and then minimized to 24x24):

P.S. notice how small a portion the 24x24 picture i cropped out is, compared to that already small picture? Anything larger being cropped out would have been blurry. I don't even think I can make an emblem out of the whole of his gun.

I hope this has given you a clearer idea of what's possible and what's not very possible to be projected in an emblem.



--------------------Updates--------------------

As of 16 March 2008, all files that used to be hosted by photobucket have been shifted to ImageShack as Photobucket seem to have irregular file compression that alters the color pixels of the emblems thus causing some errors. So the downside of things here is, Imageshack can only save the file as png (you need a bmp file format to make it work in RO), so you have to convert it yourself using paint or a file converter, when i am able to find one, i will post the link here.

As of 17 March 2008, I have included a link for the picture file converter, download it at your own risk! If the converter isn't working, please leave me a PM or something so i can find another one, sorry i wasn't able to test it.
(This link has been deleted due to security reason, and I figured everyone has Paint at home. 28 March 2008)

As of 28 March 2008, all emblems that isn't working properly that has been hosted on photobucket has been deleted so that people would not download it unconsciously.

As of 26 April 2008, added a new guideline call Realistic Request.

As of 31 May 2008, Implemented Open Source Archive, where I will be slowly accumulating Emblems into a huge archive.

As of 4 June 2008, implemented Activeness Level at the top so you can expect how fast your emblems would be delivered. Updated As frequently as daily if there's any changes.

As of 11 June 2008, 'Tutorials And Guides' section has been put up simply for the sake of expanding the usefulness of this thread. 'File Conversion' sub-category has been moved to the new 'Tutorials And Guides' section.

Thank you.

--------------------Open Source Archive--------------------

(please note they are in png file format)

.::Ragnarok::.



Simple Tutorials And Guides


--------------------Inserting your guild emblems into game--------------------

[1] Locate your Ragnarok folder. (By default, it's C:/Program Files/Gravity/RO)

[2] Inside your Ragnarok folder where you find all your Ragnarok files example Ragnarok.exe, right click on an empty space of the folder, and select new>>Folder.

[3] Name the newly created folder 'emblem'

[4] Now you can place any of your Ragnarok Online Emblems in and use them in-game!

Notes: Emblems should be in 'bmp' file format and 24x24pixels(width x height) to be usable in-game. Some servers also require you to pump a 'guild skill'(something like Guild's Glory) before you can display any guild emblems.


--------------------File Conversion--------------------

Run Paint or Adobe Photoshop. Simply open up the emblem you have downloaded, and select the option 'save as' and select bmp file from the File Type drop bar option. Also, save the file as -windows 24bit- for Photoshop, and -24bit Bitmap (*.bmp,*dib)- for Paint.

I have met with a few problems, since no picture was provided in advance, i searched around and i couldn't find a suitable 'small dragon' the fact that the emblem is already a mini 24X24 pixels, a smaller dragon would just appear as a 'blur' on the emblem. I hope you would understand that.

Sorry i can't meet your expectations.

Have you tried putting it on in-game yet? The end result is about what appears in-game, not what you see right now xD

And you mentioned about a headphone, but i don't see a headphone on your emblem D:
