I'll admit I haven't taken 1000 caps yet, but I've taken >600. I think the 999 should be replaced. — Lunarbunny 13:50, 8 December 2005 (UTC)

Its easy enough to get around. Move the screenshots to another folder, or rename them and you can continue. I was archiving mine every 100 or so, but after eating up 6 gigs of space, I decided that I didn't need the old screens that badly so now I delete them every 100 or so screens. --Rainith 14:09, 8 December 2005 (UTC)
Not that anyone cares but trying to take a screenshot when there were already 999 there used to always crash my Guild Wars and since I've owned the game I'm pretty sure it's the only thing that has crashed it but you now get a message saying "Your screenshot folder is full" (and the game doesn't crash). For all you people taking hundreds of screenshots for the wiki...rejoice! --Xasxas256 08:22, 7 August 2006 (CDT)

Can we endore products? :D I use this everywhere, very handy. Wisdom-soft_screenhunterSkuld 09:05, 7 August 2006 (CDT)

What's the advantage? Please tell me more! What steak knives does it come with? How many easy repayments do I have to make? Sorry after I wrote "What's the advantage?" I got a little carried away! :P --Xasxas256 09:17, 7 August 2006 (CDT)

Does anyone know why my GW is not saving UI elements when I screencap? I don't have the UI disabled or hold shift. It only started happening recently and is bugging me when trying to save images of inventory items and cape designs. Sunyavadin

Should the tip for Henchmen being a problem be updated to move them where you want. I'm not sure if this is only available with Nightfall or if it was applied to all campaigns. Flesh Over Steel 10:44, 1 December 2006 (CST)

jpg format

ah say goodbye to full color screenshots readily available for photoediting programs. instead, we get crappy jpgs. Probably because of the space requirement of bitmaps. Still, compare recent screenshots to your old ones, and you can detect a noticeable loss of quality. Too noticeable for me. -divinechancellor

add "-BMP" to your shortcut for gw -Ichigo724 18:31, 20 January 2007 (CST)

I think it was intended for those users who have crappy computers, "ZOMG I hit Print Screen and it crashed GW!!!!!" -won't happen anymore. For the rest of us though, adding -BMP is nice. Entropy 18:39, 20 January 2007 (CST)
It's still saving screenshots for me in BMP format even though I'm not using "-BMP". -- Gordon Ecker 22:02, 21 January 2007 (CST)
Seems like its just you that this is happening to. Mine are saving as JPG and I haven't seen anything else on boards about this. --Rainith 22:08, 21 January 2007 (CST)
Just a thought, but what size is your GW file? I wonder if it is bloated and corrupt and that is affecting it. --Rainith 22:09, 21 January 2007 (CST)
3794731kb. -- Gordon Ecker 00:27, 22 January 2007 (CST)
Currently at work, but I think that is about 700MB larger than mine (and I use -image every time there is an update so that I get everything). I would guess that if you deleted that, ran gw.exe with the -image command line and downloaded everything again, you'd be getting jpgs. --Rainith 11:59, 22 January 2007 (CST)
Ok, back home, the Gw.dat file (sorry I wasn't specific before) on my computer is 3,185,979,392 bytes, so if yours is ~3.8GB then it may have a bloat issue. There was a known issue that caused some problems for people. See this thread on GWG for info about the bloated dat file issue. --Rainith 21:15, 22 January 2007 (CST)
Wait i still don't understand, how i can i get it to take bmp pictures again? too bad too i just took the most amazing picture in a jpg :( --|DeLcRoY|Danceyeah 19:19, 22 January 2007 (CST)
Check out Command line - use the "-bmp" parameter. — Fin sig kyrasantae 19:21, 22 January 2007 (CST)
Oh cool thanks --|DeLcRoY|Danceyeah 19:27, 22 January 2007 (CST)
I got the same problem (only getting BMPs), and it's not my gw.dat file. I did a clean, fresh install of the game on a virgin computer (never had guildwars on it before) and copied the gw.dat file to my machine (it is ~2.8GB of size, btw.) and I still only get BMP. I also downloaded a new gw.exe via the setup program that you can download from guildwars. com. Still only bitmaps. Something weird is going on here... --84-175 (talk) 15:00, 6 February 2007 (CST)


Funny that if i duplicate a shift + printscrn screenshot into another layer...the UI gets visible again... - Nytemyre 06:24, 21 January 2007 (CST)
