    I think the whole Crystal load looking things are over complicated, half of the time people just alt tab while it's loading. Or atleast I do anyways. I guess it's okay, just don't make it play music.

    Spend more time on the servers roleplay quality, not the loading screen quality.

    Again, I did it for a friend's server, I don't co-own nor administrate on it. But I appreciate your opinion anyway.

    Personally, I find I can learn quite a bit from the loading screens servers use. For instance, if it has a background image of some low res dude holding a gun and has red text on a black background, it's probably run by twelve year olds. If a server's loading screen plays music, it's probably run by tosspots.

    That's quite the bad habit, that's basically you saying you're judging a book by the cover.

    Sufficient, due to the fact that there's no music.

    You've got a point but I'd say first impressions are very important. The loading screen is the first thing a user sees upon joining.

    I actually had no idea what you meant by that until I searched up 'Crystal load'. Kind of surprised it looked so much alike.

    EDIT: Your loading screen looks okay, but you definitely gotta spice it up with something new. Get a buddy to do some poses for you or something; give people something to look at.

    Usually, I quite like simple, minimalist themes but I understand what you mean. It is quite generic, mainly because the atheistic has been done before... a lot...
    Personally, I quite like the theme, nice, simple and to the point. But that's just me I guess...
    As for posing, I don't know.. I'm kind of iffy about including poses. I think I might be in the minority when I say this but most of the time I prefer to not see a pose than see one. (Unless it's a casual gamemode). Kind of rich coming from me considering I've included two poses in my loading screen.

    Thanks for your thoughts anyway.

    I honestly don't see the issue with just having a HL2 related background. It doesn't even need to be an ultra edgy metropolice pack v5 wallpaper with tnb megapack rebels and m9k fancy guns. Aphelion had a loading screen that I thought was brilliant, and it was only a piece of beta concept art.

    While I don't exactly like the theme you were going for, I can applaud you for your html work.

    Oh. Well, all of these poses you have created are really damn good, I know I could never replicate what you've done.

    suggestion:

    put loud and obnoxious rock music on your loading screen

    disable it for donators only

    get rich

    i want 33% of your profits from this if you use it
