We Need Your Screenshots
Submit your best screenshot and we'll put it on AQ.com!
If you've visited the homepage recently, you've seen the cool, super-clean new look it's got. But now we need new screenshots of the AQWorlds, to make sure they're as shiny as the site is! Send us your best screenshots of you and/or your friends battling, taking down bosses, looking awesome in cutscenes, chatting, and playing the game on Facebook or Twitter. We'll choose the most engaging shots and upload them to the screenshots page on AQ.com!
- Screenshots should not be edited, just a straight, unaltered picture from the game.
- Minimize your in-game chat.
- Do not crop your screenshot; we'll do that if it's needed
- In battlescenes, try to show class skills or monster attacks going off.
- If you're taking a cutscene screenshot, appearance counts (so equip your best gear!)
Cysero's Secrets Of The Screenshotting Masters!
Taking a screenshot may seem like pretty simple stuff once you learn how to do it but we all hard to learn sometime.
Earlier this week Artix and I decided to spend a little time in AQW talking to you guys and it seemed to both of us that a lot of you had no idea how to take a screenshot and capture the moment you met your all-time very, very, VERY favorite AE Dev...
We decided to make a quick video explaining some fairly fast and easy methods, namely LightShot and the Snipping Tool. You can watch the video here.
We were amazed by how many people started using our methods and thaking us for teaching them how to do this, so we're putting it here for anyone else who might want to learn how to take screenies of their favorite gaming moments.
There are other methods, like just hitting the PRT SC (Print Screen) key on your keyboard which captures your whole display and Pasting into a new file in a basic art program like Paint, but using the Snipping tool is faster and using Lightshot is even faster still and also great for storing and sharing your files with your friends. And it's all FREE!
