HOW TO SCREENSHOT posted by Cysero on

Learn The Secrets Of The Screenshotting Masters!

Taking a screenshot may seem like pretty simple stuff once you learn how to do it but we all hard to learn sometime. 

Artix-Cysero-Screenshot-AQW-Video

Earlier this week Artix and I decided to spend a little time in AQW talking to you guys and it seemed to both of us that a lot of you had no idea how to take a screenshot and capture the moment you met your all-time very, very, VERY favorite AE Dev...

...Or Artix.

We decided to make a quick video explaining some fairly fast and easy methods, namely LightShot and the Snipping Tool. You can watch the video here

We were amazed by how many people started using our methods and thaking us for teaching them how to do this, so we're putting it here for anyone else who might want to learn how to take screenies of their favorite gaming moments.  

There are other methods, like just hitting the PRT SC (Print Screen) key on your keyboard which captures your whole display and Pasting into a new file in a basic art program like Paint, but using the Snipping tool is faster and using Lightshot is even faster still and also great for storing and sharing your files with your friends. And it's all FREE!

Happy Screenshotting!

The creative minds behind the PvP MMO EpicDuel have teased about a "big, exciting announcement" for the past few weeks. But today is a very special day, because that well-kept secret is finally being revealed…  

BioBeasts_New_Arcade_Mobile_Game

Titan, Nightwraith, Charfade and Rabblefroth have been secretly developing a new mobile game entitled “BioBeasts” while also working on EpicDuel (woah, they must drink A LOT of coffee!). Today we’re excited to showcase the progress the EpicDuel team has made so far!

BioBeasts_Free_Mobile_Single_Player_Offline_Arcade_Survival_Sci_Fi_Beasts_Robots_Game_Charfade_beast_concepts

BioBeasts Bio

BioBeasts will be a free, single-player arcade-survival game for mobile devices (Android and iOS) where you control a mutating beast fighting to escape from a robot-controlled laboratory.

Unlock new beasts with special powers and obtain potent mutations to experiment with as the game progresses.

The team is already well into development and have a number of screenshots posted on their shiny new website: BioBeasts.Artix.com! Check it out and peruse the BioBeasts FAQ.
