UMDers are the best cheaters!

PostAuthor: Gorgon » Sat Jul 30, 2016 6:51 am

I took a bunch of screenies at the latest Blandenberg event, since... the button was there, but haven't bothered sorting through the lot yet. I did take these when I arrived at the horse races, and decided to make a crappy animated gif from them. It is still huge (1.5+ meg) even with it cropped down and the really reduced quality. but it does show what I've been saying for years.

Finger wigglers UMDers are the best cheaters! - FIXED!!!

Timestop - Getting Ahead The Easy Way!

Kassha ironically lost another race later by waiting too long to cast it.

Another Trade Fair means more screenshots! :P

Trade Fair - Dec 2016

I went a bit crazy, and had to trim down 360 or so of them to the 61 in that folder. They are pretty random, and at various graphics settings, since I was lagging a bit at times with my crappy hardware.

I couldn't resist doing up an animated gif from some of them, which is below (reduced size and a few quick artistic filters to blend it all in/fix detail glitches).

Movies can do it, so I might as well...

Teaser trailer from the 100+ screenshots I took at Sunscream's Santus event this year (link below). Couldn't resist another quick animated gif (sorry for the 1.2 meg size :oops: ).

Who's really is bigger?

More to come after sleep... :cooler:

Since Dropbox is getting rid of their old public folder stuff, I'm going to be moving all my pics to the Avlis Gallery site eventually.
I don't even wanna think about all the links here I'll have to update, but at least the gallery does ftp, and other bulk upload methods. :roll:

Anyway, I tossed up the Santus screenshots there, to try it out (and spent an hour or more playing with all the configuration stuff). I'm sure I'll end up tweaking things later, and moving them around a bit, so let me know how it works for you (PM or in IRC please, to avoid spamming here :wink: ). It has a lot more options, and can keep them in order, unlike my Dropbox albums, so I like it so far.

Image

It even makes neat bbcode links with thumbnails like that for you, so pretty nifty. :prost:

I tried out the slideshow thing it has, using some old java plugin that sets off all sorts of security warnings (sandboxed, of course), and it does work. I won't recommend the rest of you use that, unless you don't mind clicking yes when the browser says you shouldn't. Never a good idea. I had to fiddle with even more settings there, just to keep it from resizing stuff into blurry full screen, but it works pretty well after that... though the navigation overlay seems buggy as anything. I don't think that site has had any updates in years (*coughs* like moving to Gallery 3).

At least it works for storing and linking any pics we want, and without any worry of running out of room, or size limits (yet anyway :mrgreen: ). You can also set different album permissions for what is private and public (and way more complicated stuff), as well as changing your theme settings any way you like (you might want to read the instructions there, since it wasn't very intuitive - lots of trial and error for me).

*edits* I'm falling in love with the permalink feature the gallery has. I'll be using that from now on, since it doesn't matter if I move stuff around in my own albums. The links here will still work, without updating anything (full albums or individual images). Also keeps them short and non-username specific. Very cool.
:cooler:

Here we go again! 234 screenshots trimmed down to only 103, since I hate throwing away stuff. :P
They are all in order, so you can kinda follow the event along as it played out, using the forward arrows.

Taking screenshots in tight tunnels with dozens of people and critters, while having to switch the hud on/off, plus use function keys for special attacks... is about as hard as that sounds. I only IKD miss-clicked one PC to bleeding, so things went better than expected!

:feuer: Plethora's New Years Party - 2016 :feuer:

Image

Clicky-clicky, and thanks for loads of fun there everyone, especially Plethora! :D Hopefully a primer write-up will follow later, so others can fill in the blanks. I think I remember how to do an event write-up post... :idiot2:


*Note* The image toolkit is still missing on the gallery (after a recent update), so no automatic thumbnails or smaller sizes yet. That'll take care of itself when it is fixed.

Also, the last 2 show my conflicting override stuff between the CQ DC Forest tileset, and my own edits I normally use in a hak, so the wilds and other places tend to look a bit messed up when I use CQ there. I'll get that all sorted out one day (lazy...).

A quick stab at how to (use Google for better instructions):
  1. Take a screenshot while playing NWN by hitting the Print Screen key on your keyboard. This will save a .tga image in your nwn/screenshots folder (with the server name followed by a number/letter suffix to keep them in order. Sort by most recent date to find the last ones in your file explorer).
  2. Convert the image from .tga to .jpg. Most image editors (not old MS paint) can "save as" a different image type (see the tutorial stuff below).
  3. Upload the .jpg image to an image hosting site (E.g., Photobucket, Imageshack (no longer free?), Imgur, the Avlis forum gallery or the Avlis Gallery site) - The Avlis forum gallery is the easiest if you don't want to set up an account with some other site (though I love the Avlis Gallery site).
  4. All of those sites have buttons to provide the code you need (or simply show them below it when logged in to your account) to add links in BBCode for forum posts here (or clickable thumbnail versions), but you can do it manually by pasting the link to an image with image tags around it (or url tags for bigger images to just provide a link). Code example below:
    Code: Select all
    [img]http://gallery.avlis.org/d/12745-1/Santus_12-23-2016_92.jpg[/img]

    Code: Select all
    [url]http://gallery.avlis.org/d/12745-1/Santus_12-23-2016_92.jpg[/url]


    The Avlis forum gallery also has an easier way (since it is here), and will give you an image number inside album tags (all these tag buttons are up top when editing/creating posts btw). Example below:
    Code: Select all
    [album]339[/album]


    Note: Using the Preview button when posting will show the results, so you don't have to submit anything until it looks the way you like.

This tutorial is about using paint.net to save and use images on Photobucket.com or Imageshack, but you can also upload to the other places mentioned above, and it should be a similar process. Other image editing software is the same, as long as it can open .tga files.

* You might want to resize/crop really big screenshots, or use thumbnails/url links, so they don't take up big areas of the screen here.
** Standard compression for .jpg files is usually fine, so don't use the higher qualitiy settings if you don't need them (screenshots start out with huge file sizes, and some people don't have unlimited data to download, or speedy connections [crappy mobile stuff usually]).
