With the screen shot thingy, I think that Print Screen produces a better image than p

elexis, uh. How exactly is 'Print Screen' better?

'p' is saved as lossless PNG. I don't know how you can go better than that.

Of course, Print Screen might handle accidental overlays (popup notifiers) better - but you don't want those in screenshots anyway.

Image

PNG maybe, but the quality looks a bit J-peggy to me.

Clearly you've never seen a compressed JPG. ;) I can assure you that the PNG you've just linked is a per-pixel copy of what the backbuffer had in it. I'll also note that how Multiwinia takes screenshots and how windows take screenshots are basically identical (i.e. they pull data from the backbuffer, the only difference being that if MW is running in a window it'll only grab the area of it's render context, while windows will take all the backbuffer). Print Screen can never be "better" than pressing p.

Ok, forget what I said. I just thought that the armour looked a little odd and just blamed it on the image quality. All the screenshots that I took during the beta was using print screen because i didn't know 'P' existed. Also for some reason whenever i try to use print-screen the image saved is either black or completely monochrome. That didn't happen in the beta.

It got hit with a 'nade, and took damage.

Actually, its kind of a glitch. After a game finishes, you can go around all your officers, engineers, squads, armours, harvestors (and in rocket riot + blitzkrieg, turrets) and use c to destroy them. An armour will explode as seen here and any very close MW's will be killed.

Anyone know where I should be going to have concepts explained that aren't explained in the included manual?
Eg.
- Futuwinians
- Evilwinians?
"Surely you didn't mean to press that button just then did you?"
"No, nor will i disarm the nukes."
"Oh well, I will have my Fighters shoot them down."
"Sure you will."
"Oh NOES, ITS BEEN PATCHED!!!"

The forum does have a search function. All I did was type in crate and I found the answer.
