Well, that was exactly what Jetrel said I should do (if I understood correctly).

The flat-top T's don't look as good as before. I think you should move the words 'Battle' and 'Wesoth' just a tad closer to the 'the' as well.

The placement of the text is copied directly from the old version.

I've now opened a thread for the translated versions for all you polyglots. :)

Yeah, I think this is as good as it's going to get. I could tweak it till kindom come, but it wouldn't look significantly better, only slightly different. I was thinking I would get all the translations done (the Cyrillics and Greek still under work) and then post it all in one big bundle, but I can post the English version already if you want to commit it.

Yes, could you post the English one? Then we'll do the translations as a batch, but better to have the English one already committed.

Here's the english text in 5760x1920, without background, so it can also be used to make text-only versions. For the complete logo, import the image as a centered bottom layer.

The SVG will contain all the language versions in one file and I will post it when it's complete. I will also write a script that makes rendering the versions in desired resolutions easy.

I have committed the English text. :D Big thanks for working on this.

In regards to scaling/cropping, I scaled the image down to 200h and trimmed the whitespace from the edges for a final size of 200hx440w. Will your script be able to generate that size and fit the translated text, or should we use a slightly larger standard size (like 200hx500w)?

I can make the script do some cropping, but some of the translations have much wider text. The aspect ratio should be 3:1 to fit all of them.

Ok, I will make 200h x 600w standard.

images.zip - The text-only versions of all translations in 600x200 resolution. It contains 42 images, some of them are used in more than one translations and some translation use the English image.

logoscript.zip - This is the "source package" for the Wesnoth logo. There are:
  • SVG files for the shield+swords image and the text (they are in separate files, all the translations in one file)
  • a python script for making the rendering easier (you can use it to render in different resolutions and more than one language version at once).
  • font files for the fonts used (only needed for adding translations, not for rendering)
  • instructions.
The script uses Inkscape as a rendering backend and should work with both Python 2.7 and 3.x as well as Inkscape versions .48 and .91. I've only tested this on Linux, I would be interested to hear if it works elsewhere.

I should note that even though SVG is a general standard, currently the only software (that I know of) to render these files properly is Inkscape. I'm trying to find out if I could get them to work at least with Batik.

Thanks! Vultraz already added the SVG to our resource repo, I'll get the localized png's wired in ASAP.

Just want to say a huge thank you for working on this project :) It's made the game look so much nicer.
