I would like to submit a picture of the day, however, I do not know how to take an ingame snapshot. How is this accomplished?

Press "ALT-P" ingame. This will save the picture as a bitmap image in your Armada 2 folder, to submit this as a POTD you need to convert it to a jpeg file with a program such as Paint, which comes with Windows. Just open the file and choose "save as" and select the file type as a jpeg image.

Either press Alt - P (which is one way) or, the other way, is to press 'print scrn' on the keyboard (located alongside F12 on your average keyboard). You then drop to desktop (may be wise to pause the game whilst doing this) then paste it into paint. (also, if you have the patch 1.1) press Alt & I i think it is, i haven't played A2 in a while, anyway, press that and remove the interface! Also (off-topic) Freyr, your in the OX Clan for DOW right?

No, Its probably someone using the same name. I only play A2 online these days, I used to do OFP and Time of Defiance but I haven't played them recently.

this can be accomplished by placing the correct ODF and SOD files in the appropriate directories.

For my enterprise b mod, these were the files:

fentb.odf fentb.sod

After moving those files, move the texture files into the \Texture\RGB directory

After that, open tech1.tt and after the last fed ship in there, add this line:

fentb.odf 0

add that same line after the last fed ship in fulltech.tt as well. I don't like to add any new wireframes, and i only use build buttons if available, so i never edite gui_global. my mod did not come with a build button. any ship image bitmaps for the admirals log should go in \bitmaps\admirals log\shipimages i hope this helps
