Right. Looks like it might take a couple days or so to appear.

Re: August 2013 Screencap Contest
Press Print Screen, get tga file in Freespace2/screenshots. You can then convert the screenshot to png jpeg or whatev using something like GIMP or IrfanView or whatever.

Alternatively, use a third-party software like FRAPS. The trial version will shoot bmps that you can convert to whatever afterwards.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Me, I just press print scrn, hit ctrl+alt+delete, open up Paint, and paste the shot in there. Then if I like it, I send it to My Pictures.

Oh and Shift+O gets the HUD off the screen.

 
Re: August 2013 Screencap Contest

Id recommend you just use Matth's method. Lorrics is a bit over complicated. If you need a program to open the TGAs, grab Irfanview. It's free and easy to use.

You know, I thought Matt's method was the complicated one... :)

However, I didn't know about the screenshots. I thought I'd have a folder full of tga screenshots, but I don't. Just two old ones I didn't know about which I deleted. My Saga shots aren't here or any of my shots I took of my WOD campaign. The seperate mods don't seem to have a screenshot file.

I have noticed there is no HTL of the Bravos. As a community; we must fix this, immediately.

Actually, I think the Bravos is broken in FSU. That, or something is wrong with my FSU setup.

All your screens, regardless of mods, end up in the same folder - go to your root FS2 folder and look for the Screenshots folder. AFAIK, there's no way to turn it off, so it's almost inconceivable that it wouldn't be working for you.

That's where I went :)

Just had two shots of a FS2 nebula mission which I deleted.

I've noticed that issue as well in JAD, so it's not just you :)

Re: August 2013 Screencap Contest
Missing texture most likely.
Or at least it's missing in the right folder.

I don't have FS SCP on my laptop so I can't check.

This bug is already reported. (FSU: A step always ahead)

The MV_Assets.3612 VP gives the problem.


As for the screencap contest, a lot of people have partcipated (considering the previous months). Good work.  :nod:
