Have you every been wondering how you can just get that really sick looking screenshot, but are tied down to having your character in the way by being too photogenic?
Well fear not my friends, this guide will show you that you can take screenshots like photographs!
Step 1: Press esc
, or go to the Main interface menu on your lower screen and click the "Screenshot" option, and you'll see this box appear. Simple enough no?
Step 2: CONTROLS!
By default, to hide the interface on screen would by ctrl + P, ctrl + N, and the "\" keys. These make all the clutter except the annoying event and happening banners disappear. If your chat-bar refuses to disappear, press "enter" twice to make it vanish.
I like to call the "Screen shot" option "Camera mode", as you can simply just printscreen a screenshot. However this option allows for more options like positioning of the camera's height, X,Y,Z angles, and zooming in/out. In "Camera-mode" the camera point of view is frozen in place and your character can freely move without moving the camera itself.
Other controls in camera mode include the following:
Up/Down arrow keys
: Adjusts the Camera's height, by loading a skill like windmill to hold yourself still, you can easily adjust the height of the camera without moving your character. If you move your characters with the wsad keys, you won't really have to load anything.
: freeview positioning. By holding down right-click you can move the camera freely along the landscape.
Mouse-wheel: Zoom-in or out
Middle-click, or mouse wheel button:
Rotate Camera axis
With these few controls at your disposal, you can make pretty neato screenshots of the surrounding environment.
Step 3: You can now make quality pictures like Camera-girl
Step 4: ....
Step 5: PROFIT!
Now go take beautiful screenshots. If you have fraps, you can take screenshots with the light meter in the options in full-screen mode or windowed mode.
