Game Help: Screenshots

Attaching screenshots to your post, often times, is the best way to show others the issue/problem you are having. Though many are not aware just how to go about attaching one to their post. So this Guide was created in hopes of helping those, who don't know how, to attach screenshots. MTS allows images up to 1280x1024 pixels and 250 kilobytes so you should be able to upload nice big pictures.

What You Will Need

A Graphics program to either take and/or edit the screenshot, such as:

  • MS Paint - Start >> Accessories >> Paint
  • Snipping Tool - Start >> Accessories >> SnippingTool (Vista & Win 7)
  • Gimp - www.gimp.org (FREE)
  • Irfanview - www.irfanview.com (FREE)
  • PaintShopPro
  • PhotoShop


Posting Screenshots in your Reply

If you already have somewhere to post your images, like tinypic, modyourpanties, etc. and just need to have them show up in your reply:

  1. Click on the "Go Advanced" button next to the "Post Quick Reply" button, you will be directed to the "Advanced Options" Reply to Thread page
  2. For each image you want to appear, present like the following: [IMG]http://www.DomainName.com/ImageName.jpg[/IMG]
    • NOTE: this does not work for files on your computer, only files hosted on another website
  3. Be sure to read the Screenshot Basics Guide for image requirements.

Attaching Images to Your Post

  1. Click on the "Go Advanced" button next to the "Post Quick Reply" button, you will be directed to the "Advanced Options" Reply to Thread page
