If you're looking for ideas on what to write, you may also check out the List of Requested Articles at the Hugi website.
Opening Pictures: Displayed when Hugi is started. You can design them absolutely freely, just keep in mind that the resolution used in Hugi is 1024x768 and "Hugi" should appear somewhere in the pic.
Closing Pictures: Displayed when the user tries to exit from Hugi. Again, the resolution is 1024x768.
Background Pictures: These images must also have a resolution of 1024x768 pixels. Note that the text area in which the articles will be displayed must be at least 1024x570 pixels. You also have to include some kind of frame for the progress bar - you know, the bar that displays the current position in the article. There are yet more possibilities, for example you can include animated buttons in your picture. If you really want to make use of all these special features of the Hugi engine, talk to Adok about the technical details.
Photos and Cliparts: Photos from demo parties, demo sceners or anything else you consider interesting are also welcome. The same goes for hand-drawn or pixeled images that can be used as illustrations inside articles.
