Perhaps sometimes you want to make a screenshot of you character or a nice scene or something else in game :tiger042: .
But you don't know how. No problem, here is the solution!

How to make a screenshot?
  • Start your game
  • Find the scene you want to make a screenshot of
  • Now press the "Print"-Key on your keyboard
  • As confirmation you see the text "Screeshot saved" on the left screen border. It is written in blue
  • That's it!

That part was easy. Now we have to find the screenshot.

To get the image on screen now, you have two possibilities:

  1. You only made one screenshot:
    • Open a photo program of your choice (e.g. MsPaint)
    • Create a new image
    • Paste the screenshot
    • Save the image file
  2. Now it can happen that you want to make more than one image and don't want to switch all the time, then you should choose option 2:
    • You just make several screenshots as described above
    • Then you open the following directory
      Code:
      <directory you installed pwi>\element\screenshots\
      Example:
      C:\Program Files\Perfect World Entertainment\Perfect World International\element\screenshots\
    • There you find all screenshots you made as bmp (Bitmap) files
    • Now you can copy, edit or delete the files as you want

Tipp:
If you have chosen the 2nd possibility (more than one screenshot), then you should do the following:
  • Go to the screenshot-directory and move the bmp-files from that directory to a directory of your own choice.
    The reason here for is, that PWI saves screenshots uncompressed as bitmap. So one screenshot can be a bit larger.
    And if you installed your game, e.g. on your boot drive, this screenshot-directory takes a lot of diskspace.
  • And to reduce the used diskspace, you should also change the format of the images.
    Bitmap is not so nice to save images. Because it takes a lot of diskspace. It is much better to save them as PNG or JPEG. I prefer PNG, because you have no artifacts (blured borders on shapes in an image) here. If you don't care of artifacts, then you can use JPEG. JPEG has the advantage that it is a bit smaller (filesize) but the quality is higher on PNGs.

I hope you make a lot of nice screenshots now.
Have fun.
