How to make a screenshot

If you have a PC, hit the button that says "Print Screen". Then save the image using a image program, for example "MsPaint".
Then upload the image to the Internet or mail it to

21:17:38 Dec 13th 07 - Ms. Minge:

It's a little hard to convey politics or strategy through image form, but I'll give it a shot.

This one would be an example of strategy. The image was named "For Sal", mainly because I needed to give Salamon a precise.locationer of where we were to BT to with our armies and merge, in order to smash all those PHI armies individually before they merged up to attack us (pretty silly tactic for them to do actually)

Which we did. And they got slaughtered =P

This one would be a decent screenshot of warfare. Mainly because it came out of the 3-kd man era, meaning there were a lot of flashy banners about, and a lot of seperate army movements. =P

This would be another strategic image. Mainly me telling a KD mate that the town was uh, get the picture. ;)

22:08:47 Dec 13th 07 - Duke Epyon The Weirdgrivi:

Elsin and company's armies last era :P

and just below that...

22:40:12 Dec 13th 07 - Duke Arzun:


Not sure where this could go, perhaps if you wanted to show the building aspect of the game.

And this would be war.



23:15:00 Dec 13th 07 - Mr. Atreides:

Cool! My first era! And I see 1 of my cities :)
Uh...doesn't really fit, but pretty funny:
Ehh..I have no idea how to post an image actually. Let's hope this works :p

Nvm. I failed in my attempts. That should be the url of the image though.

23:17:56 Dec 13th 07 - Duke Epyon The Weirdgrivi:

it doesnt work with the (url= crap so here, take this link for Atreides pic

lol I remember that too, Val is hilarious :)

23:24:00 Dec 13th 07 - Mr. Atreides:

Ok, thanks to Epyon, I just realized how easy it is :p
For anyone that doesn't wanna click the link...oh, and sorry about causing there to be 3 posts when only 1 was needed :p
Oh, and when you're looking at it, just ignore all my stuff and look only at the pic in the center!

17:32:54 Dec 14th 07 - Lord Seloc:

some pics, decide as you will:

thumbnail sized.

wallpaper sized, p.s don't look to closely.

19:49:42 Dec 14th 07 - Mr. Everscape:

I love this one that I took before Mr. Nester's Strike Force was slowly cut down to size...

In one of most brilliant moves from the last era, Mr. Nester was basically singlehandedly holding a huge block against an enormous Peacekeepers merge that had at least 10 Corps.

In a desperate attempt to divert their merge and at the same time open a hole into their core, Nester burned 3 turns to pass them (and since he was a single army and not a merge, he also moved much faster), and then sequentially built 2 walls behind his advance to slow them, with the entrances in a zig-zag pattern.

The giant Peacekeeper merge broke, and he destroyed many of their smaller armies as they desperately chased him into the heart of their core.  He also burned several cities to the ground on his rampage.

22:35:57 Dec 14th 07 - Mr. Architect:

I called this on "The Beauty of War"

That was all BoW territory before we took it from them.

12:16:19 Dec 15th 07 - Mr. Clone Xxiclone XXI:

In this pic carnage pumped a lot of troops into the blocker, to defend from abydos :)


18:03:22 Dec 16th 07 - Ms. Sezymon:

Haven't got all my pics on this computer, these are mainly from the last eras, got the rest back home, will have a look through them soon:)

Found a good one though, supposed you might call it strategy:P

18:42:04 Dec 16th 07 - Mr. Roxbury:


Try not to clog up your mountain space, your ally might want a 90k mine in your spot!



The more blockers you have, the thinner you have to stretch your defense.



When fighting overpowered Gaia and/or LW, its always good to use diversions in your attacks.



You dont have 3 hours to reach your city, if your enemy has 3 BTs.



Dont let the enemy split up your forces (into 3 man kingdoms).



If there's something strange

in your neighborhood

Who you gonna call?

02:05:38 Dec 17th 07 - Mr. Goldsie:

If the enemy has a larger and more powerful force them you then best is to avoid it... remember armies cant be everywhere at once
