Backgrounds

ZeroTigress, where did you get those backgrounds from the remake? I've been looking all over for them with no success.

I don't know much about it. Is there a web page that explains it that you could link me to?

Wikia's support site has some helpful information to help you get to know the basics. CSS is really useful for changing the design of a website without having to edit each element of a webpage individually.

Community:Help:CSS and JS customization

Wikia's policy states that as long as we only change the appearance of items and not the functions themselves (which CSS is capable of), we won't get into trouble with design customizations.

By the way, I remember reading somewhere that it may or may not be illegal to upload full resolutions of the background, which is why I was uploading them at 500px wide max since that's the size that the artist of the remake uploaded them to on her website. Just thought you should know before you continue uploading hi-res versions of the screenshots.

Really? I'll look that up online. That could be a serious problem...

Although... I'm not 100% sure on that. Steam literally invites you to upload screenshots of the game at [1], which is where I got some of my backgrounds. It might be true, I just question why Mediatonic hasn't gotten that part of the Steam Community Hub taken down for their game.

Screenshots of the game with the UI in it are fine, but when it's just screenshots of the background, Mediatonic might have issues because they'll think people are extracting them from the game files (which kind of falls under tampering with the game). Visual novels like Hatoful fall under heavier scrutiny with this since the art assets are the main bulk of the game experience. I think we're safe for now, but it may be better to downsize the resolution of the background images just in case.

I wrote an e-mail directly to Mediatonic asking if I could use high-res screenshots of their backgrounds on relevant wiki articles, and told them I'd take down all high-res stuff if they have any objection to it whatsoever.

Nevertheless, I'm going to hold off on putting them on actual articles.

Permission obtained.

Guess that means we can add the {{permission}} tag to all the screenshots then.

Okay, I think I've got about... 80% of the backgrounds from Hatoful Boyfriend uploaded. There's still a few I just can't get clean screenshots of:

  • school patio where Yuuya hosts the butler cafe
  • hallway during the cultural festival (with the haunted house sign)
  • cafeteria
  • non-red Heartful House

I have screenshots of night sky, day sky, and some other scenery that I'm not sure where to upload since they're not really tied to particular characters or locations.
