Nice work!
A few things I'd suggest. The first is to walk through the steps required in ET to get a screenshot (Press TAB, Press F11, navigate to ET folder, etc). Second thing would be to show users how to use our basic uploader- we don't use it much anymore, but this will probably become more relevant as flash gets phased out and blocked by browsers.

I'm not thrilled with TinyPic, or their host company Photobucket. Disabling third party hosting to use tracking cookies to sell data? Grr. It works though, and nobody's fault. Imgur is slightly better- they use tracking cookies now too, but they at least still allow for third party hosting. Best bet is to upload directly to the forums.

Damn you're right, there wasn't the standard way tutorial for ss...Will do this when I have more time.

 

I use the basic uploader and this tutorial is with using it. Maybe you meant the advanced uploader? 

Anyways thought also to show how to upload with that too, but the basic version should work on most common browsers just fine.

Yeah I've heard some have issues with ss. Cant tell as I dont recall never having any issues. And just to avoid such thing, I have added a echo with a bind for ss and also for demo. If the echo wont appear, something is wrong :)

 

bind F11 "autoscreenshot; echo ^1Screenshot^7!"

 

//DEMO SCRIPT//

bind F12 "vstr demor"

set demoon "autorecord; echo ^1Recording ^pDemo; set demor vstr demooff"
set demooff "stoprecord; echo ^1Stopped ^pRecording; set demor vstr demoon"
set demor "vstr demoon"
