Hey everyone!

Welcome to our new home for the official Tomb Raider forums :wave:




As you noticed by now, we've got a bit of a new look here, but hopefully nothing too different from what you've all been used to. To make sure you guys feel right at home here, I made sure to move over all our Eidos Forums smilies, and I tried to create a set of skins that look similar to the one we were using on the old forum. Due to incompatibility issues between the old and new forum software, I just wasn't able to automatically carry over any of the skins we had in place on the old forum. So the skin that you're seeing right now is one that I had to painstakingly re-create from scratch.

I also fancied up the skin, using CSS rounding and shadow techniques, to give it an edge over our EF skin, and to really it them stand out. Together with the other skins (which will be made available soon - one of them being similar to the "TR dark" skin we had on Eidos Forums ;)) I've spent over a year working on them. So I hope you guys like the results!
width='400'




To get you all familiar with our new forums, here are some cool new features:

- Auto-save post drafts. No more "your post submission is too old, please go back and reload the screen" when you've been writing a post for a long time. No more re-writing that long post when your internet connection breaks or when your browser crashes! (oh the joy when that happened to me a few times :whistle:)

- Members Activity Stream. See what your friends and their friends are up to. Go to a member profile page to see it in action.

- Bigger PM boxes!


New Player: 50 messages (was 10 on Eidos Forums)
Gamer: 500 messages (was 100)
Protagonist: 2000 messages (was 150)
Hero: 5000 messages (was 200)

- Additional text formatting tools in the QUICK REPLY box at the bottom of thread pages. These were previously only available after you click "go advanced".


Quickly switch between standard editor and WYSIWYG editor.
Paste as plain text. When in WYSIWYG mode, you can convert html / BB code formatted text to plain text.
Change font
Change size
Quick access to smilies list
Turn a link into plain text


Well, happy posting, folks! :)

Edit: Feel free to use this thread to try out your account, the new forum features, etc.



---------------------------------------------------

Update - 4 new(ish) forum skins are available!

I've ported over both light and dark versions of the TR9 and TR10 skin from Eidos Forums.

width='800'

New features!

- No more hyperlink underlines in most areas, giving the forum a more modern and clean look. Link underlines still show in inside posts, to keep links recognizable and setting them apart from regular text.

- When quoting someone else's post containing an image, the image inside the quote is automatically thumbed to a small image of 150 pixels wide.

To use the skins, select them from the Quick Style Chooser at the bottom of the page...

width='400'

...or go into your forum settings page (http://forums.eu.square-enix.com/profile.php?do=editoptions) to set a skin as your preferred skin permanently.

width='400'


Enjoy! http://forums.eidosgames.com/images/smilies/smile.png

---------------------------------------------------

Update - Another skin to choose from! I've ported over the LCTOO skin from EF:

width=600

---------------------------------------------------

Update - Thanks to the ever awesome Photoshopping skillz of forum member FearEffect, the LCTOO forum section just got a cool new banner!



The skin is also available to choose from in any other TR forum section http://forums.eidosgames.com/images/smilies/smile.png

---------------------------------------------------

Update:

I've created a little tool to make my life easier, and figured I'd share it with you guys, as you may find it useful, too.

http://driber.net/os/forumforward

I'm using this to find the new URLs of threads from Eidos Forums that I still have bookmarked or in my browser history (I use Firefox' awesomebar quite often) so that I don't have to go through pages of forum indexes or trying to find the name of the thread using the forum search engine.

Just enter any EF thread or post URL and it'll automatically forward you to the new location here on SEF http://forums.eidosgames.com/images/smilies/smile.png

---------------------------------------------------

Update:

Here's something new that I'm sure most of you will find handy - I've added the THUMB, SPOILER and YOUTUBE BB codes to the Quick Reply editor interface so you no longer need to click Go Advanced to use those 3 frequently used BB codes http://forums.eidosgames.com/images/smilies/smile.png

Sorry thought I was on TRF for a mo' (I kid :p) I don't think we know half the work that went into it. And, for someone who tends to ramble a bit, I'm loving the auto save feature :D.

I made it in. You tried to keep me out but I made it in!! :p

Very much love that we have bigger inboxes. But is there any way to have a dark theme? All the options only change the banner. And there isn't even a Tomb Raider design :(

Also I can't get my avatar and sig back. When I went to the sig options in my user CP, there was just a message stating that I'm not permitted

And now I'm realizing that My Square account is treated as a new one. All my post history from Eidos is gone, my post count that was over 4000, and even my custom title. How do I sign in with that account over this one, as I've seen others do?? :( :mad2:

As stated in the OP, there will be dark themes, yes!

We'll also have TR themed skins.

Try your avatar and sig now. Normally you'd have to wait until you're "new player", but I've temporarily made avatars and sigs available for the "registered member" user group, to make the migration process easier for everyone :)

I hope not, because i sure don't remember which old email address i used to create my Eidos Forum account five years ago, let alone the password. And for all i know it's now a defunct addresse.

Maybe we'll have to answer some trick personal question, like, "when was the last time you got an infraction and what was the motive?" haha.

In any case it's going to be an exciting monday for everyone, i'm sure.

Why didn't you keep Eros, but with underscores or something? I'm miffed at not being 'Rai', but I managed to keep it close enough by adding the dashes. Could you not have done the same? I tell you, I'll be pleased when the migration is done*; It's soo odd seeing posts of mine under 'Rai' that I can't edit :p. I'm going to have to not look at them, because if I do and I see a spelling or grammar mistake, it's gonna kill me :lol:.

And speaking of RPG's, who here is playing Dragon Age Inquisition? I'm going with a female Elf archer to start, and then will replay as a male Qunari mage, followed by a female Human warrior. My future play through's (race and class) I'll figure out later on.

I do understand where you're coming from. I went from Rai004 on Eidos to just Rai because I hated having numbers after my name (with permission, I hasten to add :p). Now I have dashes instead as I'd rather that than not being Rai at all. Ah, so you're used to your new nickname as you've used it elsewhere. That makes sense. I still wonder how you came about having a name like that when you dislike cakes. It would be like me choosing SproutsRNice as a nickname, it just wouldn't sit well with me :p

I see I'm not the only one. For that matter, if that tab is left idle for several minutes and I reload the page to see any updates, I have to log back in. But at least in that case I don't have to enter my password again. Must be a temp memory to know my account was recently active.

And your user group is being automatically updated, Dino. It'll just take some hours as the forum software promotes you from one group to the next until it comes to the one you had on EF.

And indeed, sig and avatars will have to be re-added. You can log in on EF to simply copy&paste it from there :)

You can also try turning off the WYSIWYG editor in your profile settings, Ivana. That way you'll only see BB code when you're writing a post.

4 new(ish) forum skins are available!

I've ported over both light and dark versions of the TR9 and TR10 skin from Eidos Forums.

width='800'

New features!

- No more hyperlink underlines in most areas, giving the forum a more modern and clean look. Link underlines still show in inside posts, to keep links recognizable and setting them apart from regular text.

- When quoting someone else's post containing an image, the image inside the quote is automatically thumbed to a small image of 150 pixels wide.

To use the skins, select them from the Quick Style Chooser at the bottom of the page...

width='400'

...or go into your forum settings page (http://forums.eu.square-enix.com/profile.php?do=editoptions) to set a skin as your preferred skin permanently.

width='400'


Enjoy! :)

lol, ok, i will use this green. even the lime looks better on the dark but since i saw it how it looks like on a white background, i can see how hard it is to read.

obvious i voted for the TR10 dark skin. generally any dark theme will do good. makes also signatures and other stuff stick out more than with white.

but maybe one change can be done.
when writing posts, the background is dark. i think its better when its white.

Heh, agreed.

As much as I myself am strictly a light forum skin guy, I do prefer the dark one for xmas. The dark theme does work much better to create that cosy xmas feeling than the light skins. And the TR9 one in particular works best, because of the red colors instead of the TR10 blue, as you pointed out :)

It's random for me. Sometimes it'll automatically log me back in after clicking "Log in", but more times than not I'll have to re-enter e-mail and password. This is during 1 day, when I've logged in and read some stuff, left to visit YouTube or whatever and then come back, never having closed my internet or disabled it then re-connected.

And yes, I have to re-enter my e-mail and password everyday, whereas on the old forums I did not. The old ones kept me logged in for so long I actually forgot my password a couple of times and had to struggle to remember it when it very rarely did not remember me.

The skin in the Member's Lounge area stays vb3 custom no matter what skin style I select from the skin chooser box in the very bottom left.

That is intentional :)

ha. you have to bring back a memory of my last place i have lived in. there was a factory with a big chimney (which was good because of it, the village had the lowest tax in the state. when ever winter came, the place was always covered in snow. wile surrounding towns/villages had nothing or just a bit. this factory belonged to a politician named blocher. so of course people called it "blochers schneekanone" (blochers snow canon). :lol:

Another skin to choose from! I've ported over the LCTOO skin from EF:

width=600


To set skins, select them from the Quick Style Chooser at the bottom of the page...

width='400'

...or go into your forum settings page (http://forums.eu.square-enix.com/profile.php?do=editoptions) to set a skin as your preferred skin permanently.

Enjoy! :)

I'm assuming most of you are familiar with my image uploader. Well, I've made some changes to it, and misc images (i.e. anything other than photos for the members photo thread (http://forums.eu.square-enix.com/showthread.php?t=23430) and competition image uploads) are now using imgur as a host. I've touched up the interface of my uploader and it's now even easier to use, and shows a preview of how the different BB codes will look on the forum, and -- my personal favorite -- it supports dragging&dropping images from your computer :)

Let me know if it's working okay for you guys. I'll put up the dedicated upload button again inside the forum post editor (like we had back on Eidos Forums) if all checks out.

I'm using this to find the new URLs of threads from Eidos Forums that I still have bookmarked or in my browser history (I use Firefox' awesomebar quite often) so that I don't have to go through pages of forum indexes or trying to find the name of the thread using the forum search engine.

Just enter any EF thread or post URL and it'll automatically forward you to the new location here on SEF :)

Yes - several, actually :)

One reason is to show new members that we have more skins available than just the default SE skin (which I've heard not a single person yet say they like it, lol) and the members lounge being a "global" forum seemed like the best section to display the familiar EF-like vB3 skin. The second reason is so that these instructions (http://forums.eidosgames.com/showpost.php?p=2044664&postcount=1) work no matter which skin a user may have set as their preferred skin, heh.
