I am looking for some people who has a little bit of free time, and can take in-game pictures of Assassin's Creed directly. What I mean by this is taking pictures/screenshots of gameplay without using a camera but instead having the screenshots go directly from the console/TV to the computer. For those of you that can do this, you already know what I am talking about...

If anyone is interested in taking some screenshots for me for my website, which is still a work in progress) then please leave a message here, and I will contact you on the details. You will get full credit for any pictures you take for me.

Maybe you should just invest in a TV tuner card if you are starting such a website.


What is the aim of the site itself?

I would invest if there is no one that can help, but if I was going to spend a hundred bucks just to snap a few pictures then it doesn't really pay off.

If you're going to host a fan site then there's no option other than to invest in those things. It's up to you to decide whether or not it's worth it.

If this is one of those fan sites that will die after a few months then I can understand why you wouldn't purchase a TV Tuner card. However, if you plan on putting a lot of effort into it, something like this (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815255012) would be a good investment.

If your computer is a desktop and has a spare Pci slot, then this is an even cheaper option.

It will allow you to record the game play, and you could grab frames from it.
I have a slightly more expensive card, (Digital tuner), and with the right cables and adaptors, I can save video and make screenshots from almost any source.

1)NEVER buy anything from Tigerdirect.com I bought a plasma tv and a mp3 player from them and they mysteriously never arrived, although I did get a charge on my card. Fought it, and with a HUGE amount of resistance from TigerDirect(threats of lawsuit from the customer rep and manager etc.) I managed to get them to back off.

2)I saw a lot of PCI TV Tuner cards...but seeing as it's a PCI connection, I don't know how fast it would work.

Sorry to hear about your bad experience with them, but I only used that link as an example, there are plenty of other sites out there.
I've had no problems as regards transfer rate speed on my Pci card, I often use it to watch Digital TV in a window while working on my computer, but any TV tuner, whether it is a Pci card or an external usb 2 one, needs AV input to be used as an external capture source, the one you linked only had the normal TV RF aerial socket.

Ohh, I see what you mean.
