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 the Fearles Assassin's forums.
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
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.
This way you will see something like this in your console:
Alternatively you can type
This way you will see something like this:
You can give a name of your choice to your SS if you use screenshotjpeg by typing
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~
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
