How to take Screen Shots

Recommended Posts

It has come to my attention that many people do not know how to take and send Screen Shots (S/S)

So this post will attempt to explain how to take, and find screen shots to send them to who needs them.

First, make sure what you are trying to show someone, is on the screen. If it is a message someone sent, make sure you can see it. Because if you cannot see it, the S/S cannot capture it.

Second, It is wise to use time stamps in your screen shots, using the /time command in game or in a channel.

Third, After you are all set up to take the s/s Press the "Prtsc" or Print Screen button on your keyboard. Mine is located right after the F12 key.

There are two different ways to go about finding your newly taken s/s. If you have only taken one screen shot, I find it easier to use the "Paint" application. To do this, open paint and press "Paste" or right click and click paste. Here you will find your entire screen has been captured. (can be cropped to show only d2 screen)

Multiple Screen Shots-

If you have taken multiple screen shots and need to find them all and send them to someone, the easiest way is to locate your d2 program file. To do this follow these steps:

Open "My Computer" Or "This PC"

Open the (C:) Drive

Open "Program Files" or "Program Files (x86)"

Open the D2 Folder

In this Folder are your screen shorts, most likely labeled "Screenshot001.jpg"

Screen shots found here will only show your in game image, unlike using the paint application, which shows your entire screen, browser, desktop, porn, the whole 9.

You should be able to take it from here. You can drag them out of the folder and do as you please with them. Sorry I could not find more excuses to use s/s's in this post.

i never understood how to take a S/S using D2 files, but i have found another way, not sure how you do this with a Mac, but here how i do with my windows XP and Windows 7 

First, find the screen shot you want

Second, push PrtScn/SysRg or Print Screen, button on KeyBoard that button is above the numbers buttons

Third, push the Windows button, be sure you in town so you dont Die while making your Screen shot. go to town,,lol you can do this without exiting the game

Forth, after pushing the Windows button, click start icon, then open your PAINT tool and Paste your screen shot, after you edit/resize it, click Save as a ( J.peg )

Fifth, now you can share it as much as you want

this is the easiest way i know without having to Download any program or go to a other site to change the Size, paint tool should already be in computer

i hope this helps you make it easier, i still have problems Navigating my Computer, witch is why i dont like making a change to my computer

Thanks Lynn.  One comment, if you do do a screenshot using the D2 folder, be aware that you have to make another folder after your SS's reach 60, otherwise it just stops doing it.  I found this out the hard way LMAO  You can take as many as you want, just move the old ones to a new folder.
