I'm reuploading them as screenshots in Photoshop.. Maybe that will help.

I just submitted a few screenshots and then saw your comment. I know mine are original, but I checked with Tineye anyway. It gave results very similar to mine on the Bioshock pic. The only way you can tell the difference is to check the health meter. The best one I found was for the BF2 pic. It gives a before and after of the vehicle spam.

So, a Crysis screenshot is popular & on the internet means i can't take that screenshot from my game ? What if a particular portion of the game is popular & many people may want to take that screenshot from the game because it looks great ? What's your problem in that may i know ?

There's a difference between similar and the same. I would hope the judges are experienced enough with tinyeye to actually examine more than just the thumbnails.

That would be fine if that was what you did, but it's not. You couldn't have seen this and decided to recreate it in game, it's a freakin' shop with over 100 hits, including the original image. http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o204/sushrukh/Games-Screenshots/Crysis2-1.jpg http://vetton.ru/walls/nature/vetton_ru_265.jpg

You must be having serious eyesight issues.See the bottom Left & right side of your so-called original image = http://vetton.ru/walls/nature/vetton_ru_265.jpg

Now see my image = http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o204/sushrukh/Games-Screenshots/Crysis2-1.jpg

Both are same to you ? I am not shocked though.In this type of competitions , some people will always try to bring others down to make their own way out.It's pretty obvious. :(

You see by "shop" he meant photoshop. It's a program that allows you to alter and recreate photos.Like in this case were the original photo from vetton.ru had it's watermark removed (that thing in the lower right corner you were referring to) and a crysis2 radar and stat's interface added in.End results are a hyper realistic nature wallpaper made to look like some impossibly good ingame screenshot.

I have NOT used Photoshop in any of my photos.This is insane.I am not a graphics pro.I belong in the Hardware & Networking field & i don't have any idea how to use Photoshop to give fake photos a Game like look. :(

If this picture is bothering you too much , i will remove that pic & will take another screenshot from the same or any other game.

Thank You.

It would be believable if you did not have a history of cheating in contests SUSHRUKH, you even cheated the last time there was a TechReport contest here and you posted a user named LowFat's system and pretended it was your own!!!

read lowfat's commemts on this thread:

No one is claiming that YOU personally photo shopped it, but it is quit clear the "Screenshot" in question is just a photo shopped wallpaper from vetton.ru, wherever it may have come from.

What I don't understand is how you could ever think anyone would buy such an ill conceived lie. Ugh. You wouldn't need to photoshop anything, it's already available all over the web with the hud overlay as a fake crysis 2 screenshot, and the original isn't typically watermarked. As I said there's over a 100 tinyeye hits for that. You can't truly believe no one is capable of such simplistic deduction.

Try this. Here's one without the watermark at the same res as yours

And here's yours.

How much more obvious does it need to be. You did not take that in game.

Are you even in the US? Perhaps you're behind a school/work filter. Imageshack should be viewable by nearly all, but that's fairly irrelevant. Yes you removed it, and oddly you left the other ripped pics. You know it's not like tinyeye can be used on just one image per week, obviously if we can see one is plagiarized we can see the rest are. Not that it matters. You could simply scour the net for shots that don't show up on tinyeye. The point is you're full of BS and tried to cheat at this contest. Get better at lying and try another day.

I must say googling Sushrukh's cheating history in tech contests is pretty damn hilarious! :lol: He doesn't just have a history of cheating in Tech Report contest but in other contests as well.

From 3 years ago! Faked and photoshopped overclocking scores. lol (he gets busted on post #244)
http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/sho ... 46&page=10

Disqualified in this PowerColor contest for ballot stuffing (then on page 3 they take his entry off completely):
http://www.hardwareheaven.com/site-news ... oll-2.html

This one is a non-tech contest but he cheated and got banned on it too:
http://forum.collegetimes.us/topic/ban-request-sushrukh

Anyway back to the original topic, what game is that on KoolAidMan's entry? It looks pretty bad ass!

Considering the facts and the uniqueness of your name, the probabilities are not in favor of you being as innocent as you claim. Especially since you submitted a screenshot that was in no possible way your own.

The mods have been getting reports of stolen photos, and also someone made a report about a pic that was not "family friendly." I think it was the one with all the porn folder names.

I closed the reports because they didn't seem to be a big deal, but did want to bring it up in this thread so that Dissonance can address it it if he likes, and also to let the people making the reports know we are not ignoring them.

omg this is hillarious :D , googling SUSHRUKH's name on the interwebz turns out an alarming number of results, which could indicate he is not the only one named like this... never the less, browsing through the actual results, they are ALL related to computer hardware, benchmarks, contests, gpu's, giveaways, "show your rig", etc

dude, you've definitely been "unmasqueraded". Now, share with us your stories, have you ever actually won anything before? be honest come on. Are you after a Guinness record for most online contests entered ever or something? :D

Do you also have a side business in Nigerian email scams? Same tone and tactics.

If you were to invest this much effort in a real job, you would already have enough money to buy the godbox to end all godboxes.

@SUSHRUKH: You clearly have the hope that no one will check the validity of your submissions so I find your comments very amusing.
