Rage’s 300mb Wallpapers

I’m not going to make a habit of linking to wallpaper releases, obviously, but I think the update for Id Software’s latest on Bethesda Blog might be worth an exception. They have all the normal sizes, as you might expect, but also two 25,600×16,000 images, and a marginally smaller 25,600×9,080. You know, just in case you decided you wanted to print out these wallpapers for some actual walls.

    No 320*240?

  2. DrazharLn says:

    Well, that’s one way to show off the uber textures, I guess.

  3. Brumisator says:

    Hell I don’t have anything else to do with my bandwidth, I’ll download one of these kajillion pixel images for kicks and giggles.

    • Brumisator says:

      Well, this actually kinda looks like shit. At actual size zoom on my compy, the textures are very blurry if they are even slightly in the background.
      I’m thinking if you’re going to make some ridiculous size pictures you might as well make them look good.

      Doom3, now taht I recall, had a console command to take screenshots that where bigger than your actual resolution

    They could have at least converted to PNG…

    nice PR stunt

    • Leelad says:

      Surely to make it a PR stunt they need to have included a hidden cock somewhere in the picture.

    • Leelad says:

      or a cock hidden…a hidden cock would be pointless.

      Edit please!!

    • Lewis says:

      If they ever did do that, don’t tell John. He’d accidentally get those responsible fired.

    The downloads don’t seem to be working for me. Anyone else having issues with it?

    • itsallcrap says:


      I imagine it’s a server load thing.

      Bethesda have squashed Zenimax.

    This is just what I’ve been looking for to decorate the nursery. Cheers.

  8. Old Crackjack! says:

    Needs moar 3840×1080.

  9. MD says:

    My house’s native res is 30720×23040. Thanks for nothing, id. :-(

    I am the only one who has so far been utterly bored by Rage?

    Q3:A was the last thing id were responsible for that I gave a shit about, to be frank.

  11. Thants says:

    You can use to tiledshot command to get super big screenshots in any Unreal Engine 3 game. Like this.

    So many, many pixels… and no thumbnails to see what exactly you’re downloading.
