Entries for the Screenshot Comps are run on a an anonymous basis. PM your entries to me (Wolferz) and I shall post them in the Comp threads for you. Just to keep things fair.



Taken some decent screenshots? Let's see them then!... But - Are they good enough to win? You won't know unless you enter them!

The screenshot comp started with SH3 over 2 years ago, now incorporates SH4 and is still going - and growing!

Why should I?
Because it's good for the community and you don't want Captain Wolferz to make it an order.
He tends to add all manner of unsavory tasks to his orders. Like cleaning the bilges with a toothbrush and Brasso... to make it shine where the sun does not. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
Time frame: Generally, it's from the 1st to the 27th of the month.
Voting: At the close of the competition everyone gets an opportunity to vote on the best shot and a second place shot. One vote per voter and no voting for your own entries of four shots maximum.
You can PM me with any questions or concerns.

The May competition is hereby opened... Let's see 'em folks.

Unedited SH IV shots only.
If you wish to do SH III shots, you can start a competition in that forum.

Actually play very lil, but still got plenty...

I find RSRD most useful and have played enough to know when to find the best battles when surface ships and planes get in the works. Main thing is to pause and look at what's going on and see what it getting ready to happen. Once when attacking a CV group when US planes attack I'll let myself be seen so mass JP planes will spawn and you can get a nice mix of US and JP planes that will shoot each other.

Some good battles for mass action is Eastern Solomons, Santa Cruz, Leyte northern carrier group, where planes from both sides attack ships. Also some good PT boat battles with RSRD.

Many take great sunset shots or ship sinkings, but we've seen so much of that in past years they don't pull votes like they once did.

I don't play FORS like I once did, but it's a good mod for SS action as is Uboat OM.

Having a good title seems to help, just ask Wernher, he comes up with the best titles.

Course in times past we had numerous people enter and vote, I was lucky then to win a few times a year.
