Why are there so much tulips in summer, now? In middle europe, tulips just bloom in spring. I am irritated.

I've been running last night for 2h all around Serendia hunting snow with my friend. The duration is so short! ;_; (at least i managed to snipe a few pics... i think u.u)

Edit: Until when can we edit the pictures on the entries? I mean if i submited an autumn pic, and i want to replace it, but its currently winter, can i still replace it?

waiting for your screens^^

Some screenshot taking tips:

  • Ctrl+shift+left during ctrl+u mode to make character stop looking towards camera.
  • Certain cash shop costumes have unique idle animations. If you want the same animation with a different outfit, wait for animation to start and then change outfit. This is tricky to set up though.
  • Press enter and click on the M button (macro settings menu) to the right of the text field. This way you can set up shortcuts for triggering animations at will.
  • This is subjective, but a way to increase image quality is to turn off sharpening. This can only be done by editing config files: http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/53082-finally-found-a-way-to-disable-the-horrible-forced-sharpness-filter-and-other-post-processing-effects/
  • A way to drastically increase image quality is to go with super sampling. The game does not have good AA, and the sharpening filter doesn't help, so going with a really high resolution and downsampling is the only way to get really good image quality. If you use an nvidia graphics card you can turn on DSR (Dynamic Super Resolution) in drivers to unlock higher resolutions (not sure if AMD cards have a similar function). This is probably overkill, but I've been taking my screenshots at 5120x2880:  http://www.fluffyquack.com/temp/2016-11-12_279680.PNG
  • Annoyed by your character automatically going into random animations while in ctrl+u mode? Then, well... me too! I don't know of a solution to this and this can be frustrating at times. If anyone knows of a way to get around this, let me know.

I just finished taking screenshots for the event and I'll have them submitted later. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be submitting any winter screenshots. It's a shame snow was only in the game for 2 days and it was rare to see it ingame even during those 2 days.

Here are my entries, I hope there is atleast one winning picture in there, since there are a lot of other great screenshots made for this event.

And for some reason the post gives different sizes for my screenshots, they all the same though. :/

I have that happen to me as well, no idea what's up with the different screenshot sizes. But the one picture that really stuck out to me is that underwater one for summer, that one looks amazing! xD I'm sure you have a chance with that one!

Thanks! Yea that image was made when I sawm to Ilya for Winter pics, then I saw Manta Rays which are my favourite animals. So I went to dive and make images mostly for myself. Then I thought I could use that for summer. (: Would be awesome to see that one winning!

Do people know that they have to use the link given to submit screen shots ?
Instead of uploading them into the forum ...

Yes, probably, but as they said in the firs post:

Submissions: Below are links to the forms for each season (with the associated months) for screenshot submission. We also encourage you to share your submissions on the forums with each other.

Question about the screenshots that can be submitted. Must they come completely unmodified(except by what modes the game itself has to offer for different captures?), or do we have the liberty to modify the pictures as we see fit before submitting them(With the aid of different programs such as Photoshop, Fireworks, Paint, etc)?

Thank you for the reply.

@CM_Aethon

there is all information about this in the first post~ 

 

FAQ:
Can we use editing software (ie: photoshop) to enhance the pictures?

You may only make minor adjustments to the color (hue/saturation/brightness) of the screenshot. No external assets may be added, as the screenshot must remain true to its stock appearance.

Some screenshot taking tips:

  • Ctrl+shift+left during ctrl+u mode to make character stop looking towards camera.
  • Certain cash shop costumes have unique idle animations. If you want the same animation with a different outfit, wait for animation to start and then change outfit. This is tricky to set up though.
  • Press enter and click on the M button (macro settings menu) to the right of the text field. This way you can set up shortcuts for triggering animations at will.

Oh god D: you are so pro

i knew everything but not the resolution trick( now i am so sad, got so many nice shots, but they are all just 1080p T_T
