View Full Version : owners of the "press materials" disc

Just one question, does your disc work properly?
I can read all the text interviews, but all the .tif files will not open. My computer says that they are an invalid filetype. I am wondering if you can open these files, and if there is any goodies inside.

.tif (tiff) is an image format, so unless you have an imaging program to read them (such as Photoshop, etc.), you're outta luck. Your browser can't read them like it can gifs or jpegs. I'm sure there's freeware programs that can read them, if you look around.

and .tif . i read somewhere that there will be paper models of pirhana or sth.If so, please, upload these .tifs somewhere, or mail them on hddd@abv.bg (if they're not big)

i would recommend IrfanView for reading the tif and tiff files. i've also used XnView and SlowView and PawBrowse and ACDsee and some others as well, but taken all around, IrfanView works best for me.

paper models of the piranha? i'd love to have those!

XnView is my favourite.It is small and have a HUGE list of files opening.If u have .tim files on your psx disks, it(v 1.25) will open even them(no, i'm not joking).I think the .tif format is not very popular, so these images on the CD wont be screenshots pictures of the crafts or pilots.But we'l see...

.tifs in the press materials disc? where?
there are 3 folders in mine , one with text , one with screenshots, and one with pack shots.. i dont see any tifs?

PLASMA2097: It's an extra disc that comes with the special edition case of Fusion. There are screenshots, trailers, etc. on it!

19th February 2002, 05:22 PM
wtf?! trailers too? not on my press materials disc there arent.. as said, box shots, textfiles, and 30 screenshots or more.. thats all.

Is there another kind of press materials disc or? cause mine doesnt have those paper models and trailers

*im worried*

oh hehe damn... :sad:
i dont own a PS2 :sad:
but i would buy a PS2 only because of FUSION!!!
...if I had money...

It's important to be rich in Fusion, but it's more important to reach Fusion.

Btw, what happened with these .tifs?

20th February 2002, 07:41 AM
yeah, i need a paper model ag-craft! oh well, if there doesnt exist any, weŽll have to do our own.

oh, and if its not too much of a hassle for the price winners, i mean, if they dont got scanner or time, couldnt they scan the clip-out feisar ship model they won?

Hey Wamdue: I don't own a press materials disc - so I don't know what exactly is on it. I just guessed there may also be trailers on it.
But if you say there aren't any on it - then there aren't any on it :grin:

I am just wondering if all the pictures on everyone else's disc is .tif format. As I have been tinkering around with the settings of my multitainer,(see W3PA Forum Archive) some of the file extentions and associations may have gotten screwed up. I can usually read .tif with my standard Kodak Editor, or PhotosuiteIII, but neither of these programs will recognise them.
So, to phrase the question a little differently, when you insert the "press materials" disc into your cd-rom, what file extention do the pictures have?

20th February 2002, 07:10 PM
jpegs i think. i cant check right now cause im visiting my brother in gothenburg and hes a mac user :wink:

thanks, Wamdue.
When you get back home, could you please check for me... returning the disc may be bit of a problem for me, seeing as it was given to me as a present from SCEE, so if I can make any necessary changes at my end, it saves everybody a bit of hassle.
I hve tried copying one opf the images and renaming it as .jpg, .gif, .tga, .bmp, .img, but it still doesnt recognise the file.
