implementing some kind of "Screen shot browser" for UnrealArchive.org?

Post by jmartin » Sat May 01, 2021 2:56 am

What would be the chances of implementing some kind of "Screen shot browser" for UnrealArchive.org,

Something you could scroll through – flip through.

With so many maps, it would be nice to be able to flip though just the screen shots for different maps in order to pick out the ones that look the most interesting.

Of course not all maps have screen shots, but, just wondering.

By the way, the UAO is awesome. Best thing to happen to Unreal since the Baby Nukem Doll. :-)

There are a lot of map archives, but having one that is searchable by title, author and archive contents is IMMENSELY awesome. I find myself just browsing through the files on a regular basis.

Wonderful job and thanks so much Ken. :tu:

Meanwhile, until that day comes, you can go to your favorite image search engine and type this:
site:unrealarchive.org/maps/unreal-tournament/
Works for me :D

There's something built into the site that registers if there's screenshots in the .zip or .rar file, but it doesn't work so well if the compressed file has the screenshots in directories within.

Mine show up okay, I'm big with screenshots in my compressed files · https://unrealarchive.org/maps/unreal-t ... 67f8e.html
