Questions regarding arena backgrounds (screen resolution, copyright)

Hi,

I'm doing some custom arena backgrounds for the NHL teams and thought about sharing 'em here in the mods section (once done, may take a while lol).
But now I noticed that the backgrounds look different in windowed and full screen mode, especially on the bottom part. Does that mean that those backgrounds will look slightly different for every user, depending on the screen resolution he/she uses? Isn't there a way to create them to look the same on every screen?
My resolution is 1440x900 and I really don't want to change it all the time to check how the backgrounds look on different ones. Anyone any ideas how I should handle that?

Second question may be stupid, but nevertheless: what about copyrights? Official NHL stuff is probably covered anyway, but I'm also using concept logos and other things. The point is: is it allowed to share this in public or could that cause any copyright issues?

screenshots (resized):

Chicago, windowed mode 1440x900:


Chicago, full screen mode 1440x900:


Anaheim, windowed mode 1440x900:

Any help appreciated,
thanks

There shouldn't be any copyright issues, mods made and shared by private individuals for free generally aren't covered by copyright restrictions.

I'd be interested, would make each game feel a little different.

that's pretty much what i'm aiming for
something individual for every team that lets you instantly notice where you're playing.

still got a bunch to do...

thanks mate
i'm still concerned about the look for users with different screen resolutions, the logos and wordmarks might look overly stretched or squeezed

stephen, if you don't mind you could do a little "beta testing" (lol). your avatar is screaming "canes" and that one's finished, so maybe you could check out how it looks on your screen?!
just put the two "carolina_hurricanes" files into "C:\Users\User\Documents\Out of the Park Developments\Franchise Hockey Manager 3\saved_games\your game name.lg\graphics\arena_background" (that's on windows, don't know much 'bout macs) and you're good to go. it's intended to look like the screenshot i've included. here's the download link (mega) --> CANES-stephenk24.zip

sidenote: the background for the hurricanes is actually on my "2nd-look-list". once the complete package is done i'll do some cosmetics, rework, maybe alternate versions. but for now i'm just tryin' to finish the initial pack.
