    Smile Comments on the Screenshot Entries

    I'm starting this thread in good time for the next round folks lest I forget.

    As so much support was shown I have decided to open this thread in order that folk can comment on the entries without cluttering the actual entry thread as this makes sifting through the entries rather time-consuming for the round winner and of course the voters

    Feel free to bump up this thread from time to time - any comments about screenshots per se (not necessarily to do with the current round), will help keep this fairly active and therefore it will be easily spotted by the uninitiated.

    Good luck to all for every round. I am frankly stoked at the amount of interest and of course the hard work that folks put in with such threads as the Scoreboard.

    All are welcome!

    Lo
    Everyone is entitled to my opinion.

    Thank goodness you put yours up first - now we're all going to have to strive very hard indeed to beat that!! *Sighs loudly and feels defeated already*

    Excellent shot Xcom - I guess you had that saved in your folder already you norty boy - or did you play again to capture it?

    btw, Philip, why can't you enter?

    I'll believe you sweetie, thousands wouldn't

    I'm very glad to see members getting accustomed to the new thread and commenting here - I am sure you'll all agree that it was a good idea when it comes to round VI's voting thread - it will be so much easier to judge without the customary clutter eh? Even if it is interesting clutter

    I can but the screens I want to take will be tough, I have an idea for a great one but it'll be very tricky and I don't have Anniversary for PC, so if I take a picture from my camera of the TV, it'll look really bad.

    btw, I'm gonna keep this font Xcom.

    There isn't any fire in the TR Anniversary demo, which is the only TR game I have on computer, so i'm afraid a bad quality image from the PS2 will be my entry for this round

    I've been counselling Phlip as to his options for at first he was despondant right Phlip?

    Pink, you need not worry. We all judge on the skill of the screenshot and not the quality of the picture

    Please do rest assured that people are exceptionally fair in their voting, by and large.

    If you are overly concerned, you can always add to your shot entry something like 'Sorry I had to take this on my camera...etc' then explain how difficult it was to capture the shot. People will take this into account.

    Cool

    You know what?

    I'm gonna damn well give it a go. I'll need a someone else other than myself to actually take the picture on my demand though. Is that alright?

    Well done and that's the spirit Phlip!

    Of course it's alright - it's you who is doing the hard work afterall and you can't possibly take a pic at the same time! Just remember to save if possible just near the area you are going to extract a shot from and hope that the person taking it angles the camera (a few practice shots may be a good idea), in such a way that you get no flashback from the TV screen.

    I am so glad you decided to enter and good luck buddie!

    Awesome shot Captain Mazda!

    By the way I forgot to add Xcom, that I really do love the Terminator reference! The scene near the end of Judgement day was totally awesome when Arnie dipped himself into the hot spa

    Cool

    Indeed, it was great scene. That's why some of us immediately thought of that when we saw Anniversary Lara sinking in lava for the first time. It would have been hilarious (but kind of silly at the time) if she also did gesture.

    Also (sorry to run off topic and on my own thread at that!), I liked the bit where that other robot model got frazzled. All those weird manifestations he took on - horrific

    Put me off barbecues and toast for....ooooh a whole week did that

    JBG and Tirinka..... very well done!

    I am yet to think up a shot but it will probably be from an older game!

    Atheist will be well asleep now but I bet she is already having these weird psychic nightmares about round VI

    Thanks both for entering and the very best of luck!

    Ah nice Tirinka. I didnt see this in Legend so I'm assuming its ahead of me in Anniversary. *cringes in terror*

    I don't know if I can participate in this next round.. I'm trying to re-download the TR3 demo from last round, but it's not wanting to cope.

    x.x It's really frustrating, I'm trying to get a demo to fit this round.. I'd get some nice photos from a camera, IF I HAD ONE.. But meh.. So as of right now, it's an i don't know.

    Thanks, Lo. Glad you like it; it took several tries to get it right. It was one of those moments when I was gripped by this mad urge to make Lara do mad things just to get a screenshot. Does it show?
