Screenshots Thread

Welcome to Screenshots Thread 2: Screenshot Harder. The last one had some really cool stuff in it, it can be perused here. So, what is this thread for?

1.) Showing off cool or interesting things that occur in the games you play

Did you spot a beautiful vista? A cool easter egg? A weird/hilarious glitch? Show us.

2.) Showing off a new game

The previous thread turned into an excellent place to get a glimpse at brand new games being played by forumers. Being able to see what a new game looks like while being played on actual hardware instead of bullshots from videogame review sites or compressed Youtube videos is pretty cool.

3.) Interesting mods

If it changes up a game you love in a new or interesting way, odds are someone will be interested in checking it out too

4.) Personal customization

Did you build a rad city? Does your in-game character have the bithin'est of bitchin' weapons/outfits/cars/etc? Revel in your self-expression and give us a chance to admire and/or laugh at you.

and last, but certainly not least,

5.) Highres moneyshots

Got an i7 and tri-SLI'd Titans OC'd to match the heat output of the sun and want to show off your downsampled shots of Crysis 4 running at 90FPS? Flex your e-peen, friend. You've earned it.


Rules:

- You can only post screenshots you actually took yourself. Nothing you find on IGN or GameFaqs or Dead End Thrills or whatever.
- Vanilla doesn't resize images or scroll when they're in a spoiler, but it will resize images that are posted inline, so don't worry about destroying anyone's h-scroll. However,
- Any screenshot that spoils a game must be in a spoiler.
- No NSFW screenshots. You might be able to get away with linking them if they are tasteful, but spoilered images still load and will still be in someone's cache and you'd feel like a real jerk if someone got fired because of you
- Limit your shots to ten per post. Multiple posts in a row is fine though. This is clearly a NSF56k thread, but sticking to a softlimit of ten images per post will help break the pages up.
- The forums are fairly strict regarding emulation, so if you're posting a screen of a console game make sure to crop out any borders or titlebars that could get you into trouble. A screenshot of a PS1 game won't get you into trouble, but a screenshot of a PS1 game with an ePSXe titlebar might.
- Images of MMOs are totally fine, but as a heads up there are threads for both general MMO screenshots and character screenshots in the MMO Extravaganza subforum
- If your game isn't super obvious than please post the name of it


How do I take a screenshot?

For PC games, there are a number of different methods you can use. A lot of games have a built in screenshot capability (usually bindable) that will output a shot somewhere in the game's directory. You can also use a capturing program like Fraps to take shots (this will allow you to alter the output format, which will determine your quality and filesize). Lastly, you can take screenshots in any Steam game that supports the overlay (default key is F5).

Speaking of screenshots hosted on Steam:

To make Steam cloud shots work with the img tags on the Vanilla forum, you need to add "?.jpg" after the final slash in each one's URL.


Getting rid of the HUD

For Source Engine games:
Here's a shot of Half Life Source:

hl22012-01-2712-51-26-66.jpg

If I pull down the console and type "cl_drawhud 0" without quotation marks the HUD will disappear:

hl22012-01-2712-51-42-14.jpg

If I type "impulse 200" the weapon model will disappear:

hl22012-01-2712-51-51-89.jpg

Typing "cl_drawhud 1" will turn your hud back on, and changing weapons will bring your weapon model back.


For Unreal Engine games:
Generally, pulling down the console and typing "ToggleHud" without quotation marks once will remove the HUD, typing it again will return it. Examples from Unreal 2:

Unreal22012-01-2717-05-38-58.jpg

Unreal22012-01-2717-05-48-81.jpg


For Gamebryo Engine games:
To remove the HUD in Skyrim/Fallout 3/etc, pull down the console using the ~ key, than type "tm" without quotation marks and press enter. This is the "toggle menu" command. When entered, your HUD will disappear, but so will the console. Press the ~ key again and the invisible console will close. Then, after taking your shot(s), hit the ~ key again (it will still be invisible), type tm, press enter, and your console and HUD will be back. Then press ~ again to close the console.

Also, Gamebryo games have a command that will allow you to enter a free camera mode, which will pause the game and let you move your camera using WASD independent of your character to set up action shots. The console command for this is "tfc" (for Toggle Free Camera). Entering "tfc 1" into the console will activate it, and entering "tfc 0" will return the game to normal.

These are some of the most popular game engines today. If you have info on cleaning up shots for other games or game engines, let me know and I'll add it here.

OK

So there it is. Post some cool, interesting, gorgeous, funny, thought provoking, or dumb screenshots and let's look at them and talk about them.

    @Ed Gruberman‌ It should still be $4 on Steam, that's the first boss.

    I'd have screenshots of Syndicate too, but... Uhm... I don't know where Origin puts screenshots?

    I actually have it already. I bought it in a Humble Bundle a long time ago but never got around to actually playing it. But that boss looks interesting/unique enough that it would warrant at least a real trial.

    Haven't spent much time with it yet because I was dead tired by the time I installed it but feels very promising.

    Very old school Fallout (which was pretty much the natural evolution of Wasteland anyway so it makes sense).

    @Soulgate, stare at the sky and mash the screen shot key for a minute, enough to track it across the sky, then take all the images into gimp or photoshop and mash them all into a gif.

    Now your background will be one of their moons tracking across the sky.

    If you do, send me a friend request, my in-game name is SmokeStacks. I didn't play it until it hit Steam, but from what I understand a lot of stuff has changed compared to the older builds.

    Also, the USA West and USA central are ghost towns because everyone plays on USA East servers, so choose those when using matchmaking or the server browser.

    Not out of the realm of possibilities.

    There are mods out there that let you dress up as a radroach or a protectron and full on race mods to play as supermutants.

    I do miss the talking deathclaws sometimes. Goris was easily the coolest companion ever.

    Like the M50A1 ONTOS. Which is literally six recoiless launchers strapped to a chassis.

    Naturally we tested this strange find in the most rigorous and scientific of manners.
