I was wondering, are the potd actual screen shots from the game. I mean do people modify them. I think the potd shouldn't be modified. Its what someone saw in a game and quickly hit the screenshot ket. I mean comeon not all of these pictures are the quick reflexs of people. Can we just get some real potd's. (that is if they are not modified). Basically just wondering if they are.

[COLOR=burlywood]Some are real, some are edited for entertainment, and I think both should stay as valid submissions. I've seen hilarious pictures that were taken in-game and not modified and I've seen equally hilarious and creative pictures come out of Photoshop and the oftentimes strange imaginations of Battlefield gamers. :D If PotD submissions were limited to "pure" screenshots only, I think we'd be missing out, and vice versa.

You have a vaild point. But the ones that someone actually captures in a game that is awesome should get that credit.

You mean like this one?

ScreenShot10.jpg

This is a genuine ingame screenshot. No editing touchups etc. There is also another matter to consider, and that is changing the games physics to make sceeenshots, like lowering the gravity to get funny pics, maybe we should have several sceenshot threads. Genuine ingame screenshots with standard physics, screenshots with adjusted physics and edited screenshots, or maybe just get the poster to post the details of the sceeeny or something?

Have fun

Well! :rolleyes:

I said that this is a genuine screenshot and I meant it. There was no post editing done, it was done on a server with no adjusted physics or anything, just cause you don't know how to do it doesn't mean it can't be done. Here's another one from the same series.

You would do better asking me how it was done rather than just dumping your envy on me by claiming it has been edited.

Anyway, have fun, no hard feelings.

[COLOR=burlywood]That's one of the best shots I've seen. :lol: And if someone wants to make mention that it's an unedited picture they simply have to say it's unedited. Just a quick -unedited in-game screenshot- before the caption would be fine. I think the current PoTD setup works just fine. But you never know, maybe Pro'll decide to do some coding and have separate PotD sections. He's a coding madman I tell ya. [/COLOR]

those are pretty dope-ass screenshots. How do you lower gravity and stuff so i can get a jeep like 50 feet in the air.

I'm gonna think twice about "enemy sub spotted" now because I actually needed help to sink an enemy sub, but nobody helped.

Hi Thrillho,

The gravity commands are in the console list on bf1942files.com. Also re subs, you either need to catch them on the surface to sink them, or get a cruiser with depth charges to come and help. Basically if I'm in my cuiser and you're all the way across the map in Midway and you call for help by the time I get there you'll be sunk and the sub will be long gone. generally on maps liek that the AA and Battleship should always have a cruiser escort, but you and I know ppl don't play like that.

Also you don't need low gravity for jeep jumping, just friendly fire off and expacks will do the trick.

Have fun
