    Some people are quite savvy when it comes to forum environments, and most features are second-nature to them, but then there are those who are new to it all and might be challenged with how the Xenforo forum software works. Therefore, I have listed bullet points as to how to upload your forum avatar photo.

    Upload Your Forum Avatar Photo

    • hover your cursor over your name on the top right forum bar
    • you will get a drop-down menu
    • choose the 7th item listed in the left column --> Avatar
    • it will open up the Avatar Editor box
    • click on "Use a Custom Avatar" if it is not already chosen as default
    • click on "Choose File" and select your avatar photo from your computer
    • the size of your avatar photo should be at least 200 x 200 pixels
    Additional Instructions
    • make sure to keep your avatar photo clean and not risque' in nature
    • do not use anything political, religious or profane with text or otherwise
    • any avatar photo that does not follow these guidelines will be removed and a message sent
    I would like to encourage everyone to upload an avatar photo. If you have any challenges in doing so, please let me know and we'll be sure to get you some help with that.

    I love seeing avatar photos that represent who you are, so bring out your most interesting side. :aok

    Any idea of how to take ingame screenshots? I have them taken automatically for globals but don't know how to take manual ones.

    I use a program called FRAPS and it's free. You can register it for a one-time fee and get all updates free forever. I've used it for years and it works very well for me. Install it, set it up, and you can even choose which folders you want to photos to be saved to. You can even change that each time you enter the game -- for example: you're in an event and want to get photos, or having and adventure and want to save photos.

    It's not an "auto-shot" thing like Entropia Life, but all you have to do is press PrntScrn to capture and save to your folder of choice. You can also capture video footage and do the same.

    Go to FRAPS.com and check it out to see if it's something that will work for you.

    Print Screen button on the keyboard. This will copy a screenie. Then go to microsoft paint and paste the copyied screenie.
    Theres a flaw in windows 8 and 10 that when game is in full screen mode when u paste the screenie it comes out a black screen. To fix this just have game in windowed mode and it will work fine.
    I use entropia life traker now which skips the whole copy paste procedure and does it for ya when print screen button is pressed.
    The only way to get screeenies in fullscreen mode is to use a program like DM explained about.

    I would like to encourage everyone who doesn't have an avatar photo to please upload one. It would be helpful to me when I go through my daily routine of cleaning up spam accounts that have registered. We have measures in place, but there are those who get through, and we're still dealing with leftovers that are being removed as they pop up in birthdays. The forum was neglected in that respect for quite a while.

    Eventually the leftovers will be gone, and I'll be able to keep up with the small number we get daily. Then we'll see a true growth number in membership, and not one padded with spam accounts. :thumbsup

    That's my mission anyway. :clap

    Now dammit, go upload your avatar photos if you haven't already. :devil

    Please? :p

    You already have an avatar photo. It's the one that shows up on the left of your posts above your name. Mine is the DM logo. Your avatar photo doesn't have to actually be your in-game avatar, so you're good.

    Bumping this thread to once again ask if our forum community members would please upload an avatar photo, especially for those who are pretty active at the forum. The instructions are in the first post.

    It's nice to see how creative some of you are with your photos, but remember to keep them respectable. :D

    Thank You :)
