Some other useful stuff: press tilde (~) to bring down the console, and use freezeall to stop the action and (urgh, I can't remember exactly) freecamera? or camerafree? aaack, I'll look it up :) Anyway that will allow you to move around the character to get a good angle.

You can also use zoom (actually just changing your fov to less than 90) to get just the right distance.

Don't look at my sig as an example, it is very generic. I'm working on another. So do as I say not as I do :P

Hello again. You could have continued this in your previous topic you know. Anyway...Phew. Where to start. Here goes - the definitive guide I think:

Make a note of your original settings so you can change them back afterwards.

1. Start UT2K4

2. In the settings menu:

- Video tab select Resolution to max
- Details tab push all to max & check all boxes
- In the Game tab hide the crosshair

3. select your favourite skin

4. Start an instant action game in any map you choose & set no of bots to 0

5. In game select a good spot (well lit) with a nice background

6. Open the console (the @ or ~ key) & you can use all or combinations ofthe following commands:
- freecamera 1 (this allows you to turn around your character)
- fov 30 (or any value lower than 80 for close up shots)
- shrinkHUD (several times to remove it completely if you didnt do it in the settings tab)
- slomo .3 (your character will move slower so its easier to capture the right position)
- lockcamera (this freezes the camera where it is)
- playersonly (this freezes all bots and shots which is good for action shots)

7. Try movement keys, changing weapons, firing etc or taunt animations.

8. when theres a shot you want hit F9 to do a screen capture. Its best to take lots of different ones and then choose one you like later on and discard the rest.

9. Exit the game and in Windows Explorer open the sub directory of UT2K4 thats called Screenshots

10. In there are all the screenshots you took

11. Open the one you choose in a photo editing package

12. Resize, Crop, Rename and change to .jpg format (thats more web friendly)

13. Send payment to [FnG] Wulfy :)

Dont forget to reset your settings to what they were or "your in game experience may change during play" :lol:

One option you might like to add to step 6 is 'togglescreenshotmode' which disables the hud, removes the crosshair and any visible weapon all in one go, entering it again brings it all back.

You need to get them hosted at an image hosting site.
