None of them work, which may be because you failed to enter the file type at the end, example :

The file type at the end is bmp. So add that if you want to see the pictures. Anyway, what are we exactly critiquing here? This are just screen captures from A New Hope with some text on them that looks like it was added in MS Paint. Some of the pictures have even been scaled wrong.

Perhaps when you've done some actual work on the game, we can help you.

Though it looks like you've put forth effort in creating these screens, I must advise against making a Star Wars game. So.. Please don't..

This isn't good idea, for several reasons:

1. These will look very bad in an adventure game.
2. It's very hard to rip succesfully every background you need from a movie.
3. I don't think LucasFilm would approve this. You're even using their logo.

But if you really want to do this, then I'd suggest you to draw these bg's yourself. And not to use LucasFilm's company logo.

If you are going to rip screens, at least edit them; rearrange, add or remove things, make it your own. And you can make a Star Wars crawler just like in the movies, so you wont have to use that crappy combined screen. There's a thread around the technical archive somewhere, but I'm too lazy to search for it.

And if I may be nitpicky, Lucasfilms works on movies, Lucasarts works on games. If they made a game like this, they would use the Lucasarts logo. But they're not making it, you're making it, so it would be better(not to mention smarter) to use a logo of your own.

No definatly not.
Take a look at shadows of the empire. THAT is cool.
You'd better make your own backgrounds or atleast modify screens alot better than that. About the logo, I hope it was a mistake you aren't seriously thinking about using it are you? :-\ It is property of lucasfilms! and like largopredator said it would have been LucasArts!

Haha. I really wouldn't do a Star Wars game. Really.

And I would also never post BMPs on the net. Sick.

Star Wars is one of the reasons great commercial adventure games died out.
It completely corrupted LucasArts :(
