Screenshots

To upload screenshots, simply click on the Upload Files button. You can upload an unlimited amount of screenshots all in one step! Once they finish upload and you refresh the page, all the screenshots will show up. (Please convert your .BMP files to .JPG first. You can use irfanview or any image editing program.)

For more professional looking screenshots, you may want to take a look at these optional tips:

  • Use sv_cheats 1 in combination with cl_noclip 1 (to fly around), godmode 1 (invincibility), or cl_notarget 1 (enemies ignore you).
  • Try to show off the map's architecture and interesting areas.
  • A few screenshots with actual co-operative action are nice, but not required.
  • Use r_drawviewmodel 0 and crosshair 0 to hide the crosshair.
  • Add "nosuit" in the map's .cfg file to hide the HUD. For a guaranteed way of removing the HUD, install these blank HUD sprites. Backup your originals before installing.
  • Command (impulse 50) removing the HUD. Thanks, Sniper.
