Want to add a minimap or picture to the forum? Here is the easiest way to do it:

Pictures in the Forum - Using BB Code
If you want to add a picture to your forum post, you can do it by creating a GIF or JPEG using the photo/picture editing software on your own computer.


  1. To get a screenshot from within the game, hit Alt-PrintScn to copy it.
  2. Paste it into your editing software (Paint, Photoshop, etc.)
  3. Crop the picture however you like it, then save it.
  4. Upload the picture to your own webspace (free webspace can be found at bravenet or freespace, etc. A directory of free image hosting sites is here.)
  5. Get the URL for your picture by right-clicking on it (once it's uploaded) and going to Properties. You can copy the address and paste it into your post.
  6. If you want the picture itself to appear, use this code:
    [img]http://www.castor-lycan.com/walls.JPG[/img]

    This appears as:

  7. If you want just a link to the picture to appear, use this code:
    [url=http://www.castor-lycan.com/walls.JPG]Link to Picture of Walls[/url]

    This appears as: Link to Picture of Walls

If you have a bunch of pictures, or the files are large, then it's better to just have a link to them, so people on dial-up don't suffer too greatly!

Have you tested the old PNG tool with the new format SH2 maps?

Good question, I was just wondering about that... no, it doesn't.

What file are the screenshots stored in after you take them?

Gordon I do believe that it is not working, I have searched and can't find where they save to. I gave up and installed Fraps, or I use the print screen key. Hope that helps. I think we have it listed in the bugs list for the editor.

Hmm... I'm not getting anything when I use the printscreen key, Lady A... guess I'll have to go find Fraps!

Gordon: The screenshot function in the game is definitely not working right now...but using print screen on your computer, then minimizing to desktop and pasting into any editing program (like Paint) works just fine!

Later,
pat!

BTW..I do hope that FF fixes that issue in a future patch, but I wouldn't consider it a major issue...
