For those Screenie N00bies. You don't take 1 screenie then exit. Open M$-Paint before loading your game. Now just alt tab to it, paste image. Then press the windows key and push the arrows keys to select M$-Paint again.

For those who don't know how to put in screenies...
Look at the purdy little attachment field. Press Browse, then locate the screenie

Now for tips.

Always BUILD the game when making Screenies, not only does it have better performance then Test Game, but it can show the frame rate as it self.

Always take a screenie including your frame rate. From now on, if a screenie doesn't include the frame rate, and the person wants to sell, We will assume that it is SOO bad that you can't show it. But if you don't know how to get the frame rate, just push tab while you are in-game.

Don't show fight sceens, unless you are using custom media, all fight sceens are exactally the same.

ALWAYS save as JPEG's, if you have window$, M$-Paint can save as JPEG.

ALWAYS save in 1024/768 or 800/600 no smaller.

Show as much as you can, taking a shot of a wall, or taking a shot of a stairwell is as intresting as dirt. Show us the rooms, and show us the cool stuff.

Include your system specs. Simply put, You may have a super-computer and we will never know, people need to know the specs that are expected. People build games around the performace that they have, others don't have the same performance.

Have fun. Shoot your name in the wall, blow stuff up, it is all cool as long as we see what we need.

And Finally, Follow the Seven Commandments!


Thanks Given to SarusX


Rule 5 will be updated to
Thou shalt post in the ways dictated by The ANJL.*

*This confusing rule controls your entire posting method, in it's current interpretation it means no leet or stared swearing, and always post demos, screenies, and Videos in formats coveinent to others.

As serious as this post deserves to be, I really can't stop laughing. You just wrote why 90% of the screenies are basically... well... are bad to say the least.

Good post mate. Have fun.

I'm pretty sure I know everything. Doubts are something rare in me and I am never wrong, as this signature can prove.

Well fight scenes or scenarious can be somewhat different even with default models. With either you only get a frozen pic anyway so small vids are good for action.

Many games made in FPSC using default media for characters and world building too can look very much the same but how the content is used in game concept, level design and the use of lighting additionally can make a big difference even when using default media.

I have seen some nice screens at the fps creator site made using both custom and non default media.

But I get the thrust of the message and sensible choice of screen shots showing creative use of FPSC is what we all like to see best I guess.

Having said that although I agree with the sentiments of the previous posts entirely, personally I cant ask that anyone should not post whatever they want as I presume that all posters of screen shots believe their work to be worthy of showing to others.

Of course all the other points re: jpeg format and so on are valid.

Mind you if you only want users to show Shots of screens with acceptable standard gameplay speeds of 30fps then you are going to be a little short of content which may not be a bad thing.

Not sure many will pay attention to any of this at all but wish you luck.

I never said show perfect 30 screens, I only said SHOW the frame rate, and give us stats. It helps us decide wiether the game is a practical download.

It's the same thing, print screen copys, f12 makes. but printscreen forces the people into paint. Also, your 150-200kb screenies are a nightmare for DialUp, and many people still are on that antique.

Ali M, that is against the AUP. And it is against Netiqute.
