I would like to try an AAR - never done one before. How do I post screenshots please?

In that case, sorry no idea if direct upload is supported here, this is for Matrix Staff to answer... I just use them myself a lot, they are easy to use.

There is a "file" box below the message box whn making a new post.

EDIT: And it seems to work fine, but only 1 screenshot allowed per post. Better to upload to something like tinypic.com. Easy enough, no need to register or anything.

Press Ctrl+P at any time to save a screenshot in-game, screenshots are auto-saved in by default in: "My Documents\My Games\Commander The Great War" or similar.

Thanks for your patience. I found the folder but it has saved the screenshot as a PNG and it won't upload....

Aye ok, is probably because PNG`s are good quality but quite large to upload/load, forums and websites like JPG/JPEG formats better.

Now just get this free software Irfanview and you can resize and save in almost any format. So change your PNG to JPG format.

In Irfanview open and load your picture, got to Image tab on top menu and choose resize, here you can resize to any desired format. If you have big size monitor it is better to resize them.

Than hit the file tab in top menu and go to save as, and at the buttom pick your format, in this case JPG.

Use imgur to host the screenshot instead:
Then you just have to copy the address shown in "BBCode (message boards & forums)" into your post.
Example:
[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/iip27.jpg[/IMG]




imgur accepts png files.

That is probably less work! Wizzy software is not always bad... ;-)

I see you have a big monitor, so in Irfanview go to Image and select Resize/Resample, you get a selection of predefined most common settings, or choose one your own.

Eg. select and check 1024 by 768, make sure you have save aspect ratio checked than hit ok. After that save as JPG.

BTW reading your AAR, remember that early air planes are just wood and paper flying scout vehicles.

They upgrade and air tech greatly improves over time to better dog-fighters, bombers, greater scouting ability, airship killers, anti-submarine measures etc... and you can speed up their tech, but it is costly, however air superiority can help you.

Of course maybe the enemy will counter with better anti air-tech, or invest in tank technology early on and kick your ass back. :-)

You can post more than one image per post:
.


.
.
Use full stops to create lines that would otherwise not be there.
.
.

.
.


.

Get the text etc perfect using Notepad because it is a text editor and it removes all that weird formatting of Word etc.
.


.
.



When using Microsoft Paint, push the corners in to tidy up your screen shot;
.

Before
.


.
After.

hey joe, multiple images per post???
is this because they are image links? I thought uploaded images were restricted to 1 per post.
