Vakarr's guide to producing AAR's

Post by stockwellpete » Mon Dec 04, 2017 9:06 am

One of the occasional features of FOG2DL will be an AAR of a match that we will show on the forum. It can be a match from any division, or any stage of the tournament. If you would like one of your matches to be shown as an AAR please let me know. My thanks to Vakarr for providing this guide. :wink:


F2 – Takes a screenshot and dumps it to Documents\My Games\FIELDOFGLORY2\SCREENS. There is also a Windows program on your computer called Snipit which allows you to select a part of the screen and take a snapshot of it (and draw lines and arrows on it). It's easier just to press F2, though.

So, get the screen how you want it and press F2, and keep doing that at each point in the battle where you want a screenshot.

After the battle, go to My Documents\My Games\FIELDOFGLORY2\SCREENS and you will see a bunch of numbered files. You can then view the files and perhaps rename them so you know what they show. If you want to add arrows and text to the pictures, you can use Paint or another picture editing program to do that.

Now go back to the forum. When you reply to a message or create a new thread, at the bottom of the screen you will see this:
Capture.PNG (15.41 KiB) Viewed 1477 times
Click on the Upload attachment tab and you will see this:
Capture2.PNG (18.16 KiB) Viewed 1477 times
Click on the Browse button, browse to your screen shot, then click Add the file. You can also type something in the File Comment box to say what it is.

Now click where you want a picture to go, and click "Place inline" to put that picture there.

Repeat as necessary for each screenshot depicting your match.

Please note that it may be necessary to run your screenshots through or similar to save them in a less memory-intensive quality - otherwise they may exceed the file size limit for attachments.
