Use SCMDraft 2, and a image program that can resize/convert to JPG or PNG.
In SCMDraft 2, open a map, under file, click save image.
Open that image in the program of your choice.
Resize it, 768x768 is usually good.
Convert to JPG or PNG.

Enjoy!

I reccomend Paint.NET (google it.) for resizing/converting.

Or you can go where you want your screenshot inside the editor, hit thr PrtScrn on your keyboard, paste into paint, or some image editor, cut out what you don't want, then save that. You can use SCM Draft to place units and sprites to make it look more like an in-game screenshot, like I did with Movie Contest and Robo Battles in my sig.

Hmm, you can upload it without any picture, but it'll sure look better if you add one.

You can upload a map without a screenshot, but you can't put it in the map showcase forum with any.

You can also use the Print Screen button in-game and the image should be automatically put in your Starcraft Folder.

Yeah, but then it'll be in an odd format (PCX), you can open it with IrfanView though.

True, but its probably still a good thing to know. You can just convert these files as well.



None.

PCX is not so odd, its just old and not very wide spread.... But uses a simple RLE compression, so it works quite well (since its very similar to the compression that SC GRP files use).

TheHappy115 -- such as things like Center View work differently on online play (instant on online while single moves the screen slowly and pauses)

TheHappy115 -- I had played spellsword on Remastered roughly 3 - 4 years and it worked fine so not sure why it doesn't work now. Big Rips. I know there is some form of trigger that detects whether its online or not but I imagine it has something to due with latency

Butch -- prob some weird character on a string somewhere or something dumb like that

Ultraviolet -- It's weird indeed, not really sure what is so special about Spellsword that causes it to react differently on Remastered, usually EUDs are the cause of things like that

Zoan -- I haven't played in like 2 years so maybe something changed I don't know about

Zoan -- No-Name-Needed-II
No-Name-Needed-II shouted: Zoan No idea if anything changed.. I've made several maps that push TMOANC to the limit and they are still working.. 3 causes of it I've narrowed down are -Too many islands which some terrain on certain tilesets can create micro islands on cliff edges with basic isometric.. -Too many changes in elevation from high to mid to low ground.. -And too many tiles from certain doodads that block tank fire..
Any clue as to why a map which would previously work fine on past patches would now suddenly not work on the current remastered patch?

Zoan -- I'll try Butch's suggestion of running in 32-bit, maybe that will fix it?
[2022-5-23. : 5:34 pm]
Zoan -- Oh_Man
Oh_Man shouted: Did martiss' link not work?
It crashes as it does when you use EUD's incorrectly - like it closes starcraft and has the error window pop up with a ticket to send to Blizzard. I know it's not EUDs though since obviously spellsword doesn't use any, so IDK what it is.
