When you wish upon a star...

Well, here's my second wish: i wish that CoF could make a AWCamera(AWCam)!
i'm sick of using Save Screen and pasting it into Paint, then fixind the
height, width and format! and i'm sick of only being able to take a picture
each 5 minute or so, because my computer is reaaaalllyyy slooow... it shoul
be posible to take as many pictures you want and geting them out in the
format u want, and only gett the AW Picture, not the toolbar, the Web-thingi
and the other stuff...
are you guys with me?!

I don't know about AW, but 3danarchy has a built in snapshot feature.
At the moment, if you try to take pictures in a succesion the last one will be
written over, but if you quickly change the name and get back to the browser,
you might not miss anything. I have been asking for a feature to write to a
different file each successive time snapshot is used. It is in beta testing so
bugs are the highest priority at present so it might be awhile until this frill
is implemented, but I have high hopes.

You can check out some of these snapshots at
http://www.attitudesoftware.com/worlds2.html

My screenshots are in Anarchy City: Cinema and MeetingHall.

I use Paint Shop Pro in multiple captures mode - can wear down the resources
after a lot, but I took 28 snaps of the first real BotBall game using this
and didn't have any real problems.

Hmmm... You'v not done much of a search if you can't find Win-based capture
utils that do the things you'd like... I use these utils:

Hyperionics with Frames

and can either 'multi-snap' (or auto-multi-snap) images using HyperSnap (which
are saved with consecutive file names) OR using HyperCam make AVIs of my walking
around in Alpha...

Just takes a search engine to find like utils...

I agree there should be a good snapshot feature in AW. But not only in AW
have i been wishing for that. Many cool games should have that feature too.
Most games don't have it, unfortunately.
I am personally very often busy with making screenshots and editing them.
And most screen-capturers are really crap. Besides; most capturers are for
Dos (prompt) and don't work (good) with Windows-apps.

Even more than in good-looking games like Unreal, I think one comes across
scenes in Active Worlds that are really worth snapping. And working with
prt-scrn, alt-tab and ctrl-v really irritates me....
