How to take screenshot ingame (xp/proof) - Enemy Territory

Recommended Posts

  • Administrators


This tutorial will show you how to take screenshots (in this example we take ss of xp) and also where to find those, so you can post them on forums  tutorial here:

Taking the screenshot (method 1)

Step 1: Join a team (axis/allies)

Step 2: Open console 




Step 3: make sure there is no marks in the line you write (erase by backspace) and now write /autoscreenshot  or  /screenshotjpeg  or if you want to find the ss easy, add a name to it and write  /screenshotjpeg putnamehere 


Taking the screenshot (method 2)


Step 1: Join a team (axis/allies)


Step 2: hold down tab button and at the same time press F11


 -  If you want to make sure the ss was taken succesfully, you can type this (or add in your cfg) before step 2: /bind F11 "autoscreenshot; echo ^1Screenshot^7!"


 - It prints an echo in console and also in popup area on screen (see ss of xp below)


Location of the screenshot


Now you need to find the screenshot.


Step 1: Open the location where your ET is installed (default is C:\Program files\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory)


Step 2: Open the mod folder you took the screenshot (in this example taken on silent mod)




Step 3: Open the screenshots folder


Step 4: Find the screenshot you took. As default ET marks these as date/time, but if you added a name to the ss, search for it (used /screenshotjpeg name)




And here is how these looks if you did all right.

Screenshotjpeg = post-23508-0-79953600-1522446627_thumb.jpg


Screenshotjpeg with a name = post-23508-0-07582500-1522446629_thumb.jpg


Screenshot using tab + F11 =  post-23508-0-74355800-1522446629_thumb.jpg


Taking ss using Prt Scr button (not safe way)


One more method of taking ss is using the Prt Scr (Print Sreen) button on your keyboard. 




Step 1: Join a team (axis/allies)


Step 2: Press the Prt Scr button (do not open console)


Converting ss as jpeg


This might not work and just prints you a black screen. Happened to me also, so cant show example, but I tell you how.


Step 1: Open paint application


Step 2: Paste the ss 


Step 3: save the ss, make sure the saving format is set as jpeg

second tutorial

Hi everyone, in this tutorial you will find out how to take a screenshot (SS) in the game Enemy Territory (ET) as well as upload and attach it to a post on your site


It is particularly useful for those wishing to apply and are not yet familiar with the mechanics and features of the website.

Step 1: Open ET. Make sure to run ET as administrator

You can open ET from your desktop, or from start menu, or from its folder.


Step 2: Join a server. If you are an applicant, make sure to join the server where you have EXP (or xp) and want to add to your application


Step 3: Join a team (axis/allies)


From here there are different ways how can you proceed. I will tell both

Method 1:

Step 4: Open console

To do this, push the key highlighted in the image below (tilde key). This will bring down the console appearing on the upper half of your ET screen




If you push the tilde key shown above AND the Alt key simultaneously, the console will extend to cover the whole screen. Not advised to do if you want to take SS of your xp.

If you push the tilde key AND ctrl key (control) simultaneously, the console will shorten and take up only 3+1 lines on your screen.


Step 5: Delete any characters already typed out in the command line.

Make sure there is nothing written in your console.


Step 6:



This way you will see something like this in your console: image.png.1f89843884e0fcf2514776125c098943.png

Alternatively you can type


This way you will see something like this: image.png.d28e6a979444043dad46ac4cea00847f.png


You can give a name of your choice to your SS if you use screenshotjpeg by typing

/screenshotjpeg [name_of_screenshot]


For example: image.png.4a9823c5a73d1b9d287b465bce5662d6.png


Note: Using /screenshotjpeg [name_of_screenshot] will enable you to locate your screenshot a lot easier. You need only search the name of the screenshot in the search bar.


Step 7: Congratulations! You successfully took a screenshot



As I mentioned above, there is a different way to take SS

Following from my previous steps~



Method 2:


After you have joined a team (which is not a necessary step)

Step 4: push F11 on your keyboard




You will see the below in your console.



Step 5: Congratulations! You successfully took a screenshot


The SS will look like this

Note: You can also press tab and F11 at the same time to take a screenshot of your XP.

However, if this doesn't work


Remember: Press TAB a couple of seconds before pressing F11 and keep hold of it until you have taken a screenshot.

OR type /+scores in the console. This executes the same command as the TAB key and keeps it on screen. Type /-scores to remove it once you have taken your screenshot.




In this case, the SS will look like this

Now you have your SS, next thing to do is to find it.

Step 1: Open the location where your ET is installed (default is C:\Program files\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory)




Step 2: Open the mod folder that corresponds to the mod of the server you took the screenshot on. (In this example, the server mod is Jaymod)


Step 3: Open the screenshots folder

Step 4: Find the screenshot you took. The SS should be at the top if you sort by descending date order.




Step 5: Congratulations! You have found the SS you have taken

And now I will show how to attach a SS to your post.

Step 1: Start making your post



There are a number of ways to attach a screenshot.


Step 2: Click on choose files...




Step 3: Locate the SS (or other type of file) you want to attach


Step 4: Doubleclik on the file OR click Open

Your SS should appear like that

Step 5: Congratulations! You have attached a SS to your post

The other method you attach a file

I will continue from step 1

Step 2: Open your documents and locate where your SS is

Step 3: Click once on the file, drag and drop into your post




You can drop your files into the post area, anywhere there


OR you can drop where it says "drag files here to attach"



Step 4: Congratulations! You have attached a SS

If your SS appears at the bottom, you can click on the plus sign, to make it appear on the post area before posting

Then the SS will appear, and you can manipulate it in different ways

You can doubleclick on it to resize it for example, or drag and drop to different places in your post

In this way the SS will take up place in your attachments, however the SS is independent of any other website.

But you can also use an upload site to upload your SS there and paste it here

Alternatively to upload a file


Step 1: Go to https://imgur.com/upload

Optional step: Make an account there

Step 2: Locate the image in your computer you wish to upload

Step 3: Drag and drop the image where it shows




It will appear as:


Step 4: Open this page (imgur) and the FA forum page where you are making your post.


Step 5: Drag and drop this image to your post




Step 6: Congratulations! You have attached a SS to your post

Keep in mind that the previous method is the recommended one

And now you know how to (1) Make, (2) Locate and, (3) Attach a SS to your post
