BGC - Backgrounds Contest | Open 04 July 2020 10:43:46  

The TMX Backgrounds Contest is a contest that gives you the chance to get your many screenshots chosen as background image for the whole site! There will of course be a few rules and requirements, which you can find below.

If we end up getting a lot of submissions, we might choose more than just one set of backgrounds to use, so feel free to submit multiple times (though limited at 3 submissions per user.)

Rules & Requirements
– Must be captured in Trackmania (Trackmania², ShootMania & older TrackMania games not included!)
– Must be Trackmania related.
– Must be sized 3840px x 2160px.
– Must be available in a dark/light or night/day versions, from the same image.
– Must have the main focus of the image be on the sides, so it's not hidden behind the page itself. *see below
– Image editing is allowed, and encouraged, but the image should remain recognizably Trackmania.
– Track mods, 3D car models and car skins are allowed.
– No text (other than in-game signs and such) allowed on your backgrounds.

*focus area for content of the images. (old background for reference)

How to submit
You can submit your images by replying to this thread, please include both your versions(light/dark) in the same post. If you want to submit multiple times, please do so in different posts. When you submit, please add the author of the track that you used in the screenshot. If you built a track specifically for the background, this would be your own nickname.

At the end of the month, the TMX crew will pick the best set of background and those will be the backgrounds on the site for that month.

There's currently no prizes for getting your background picked. You will, however, get your name showcased in the bottom corner, until the background gets updated again. As a side bonus, you can use maps from your friends and get their name showcased there as well, or have your name show multiple times by using your own maps.

It seems like TM can't do screenshots larger than my monitor resolution :( Anyone know a fix for this?
Edit: my bad, it works if TM is windowed :d
