Somebody out there who would be so kind to tell me how I put in a screenshot in the long list (now 18 pages). Would be nice with a generel instruction on that topic on the 1. page in the 100K list.

Thanks in forward!

Have a look at this 100K forum (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/857101043/m/9291097203), A simple picture or 2, of proof will do. 18 pages is like a really long novel.

Crl-F11 then save the images on Imageshack or Photobucket or some other image site. Then link the pics in your message.

Linking the picture in your forum post or sig is done with the following sample code:

<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">http://an.imagehost.com/yourpic.jpg</pre>

I simply don´t understand what you mean. Sorry. You are all talking in an art of "subunderstanding" computer language I don´t understand.

I´m not working as a highproof Microsoft person, I am a simple person apparantly not to familiar with a computer.

Again: HOW DO I PUT THE PICTURE ON?? I am able to make a screensave, but not able to put it in on the hompage 100K (at the time page 18 on that topic, not that MY report is on 18 pages).

Please help!!

Move away from the keyboard, get up from the chair slowly, keep your hands where we can see them and back up towards the wall in the rear. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

The AVON Lady, keeping the internet secure from server to server...I CAN sleep better at night! whew!

I've never made it to the 100K club...but I guarantee you that I am a very skilfull Untersee Boot Commander...This isn't an arcade game, it about immersing yourself (submersing yourself http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif ) and surviving a very extreme mode of warfare!

I agree with Otto. What would impress me more is not so much your ability to sink tonnage, but to sink tonnage while surviving through the war, at or near 100% and not resorting to gamey tactics like reloading when you die, using external views to cheat and the like.

Thanks a lot to some of you (who not are joking with my problem) but here I really have been pushed to the edge!

It still dosn´t work and the problem is as follows:

How do I make a picture from the screen into a picturefile?

I have tried to copy the picture into a word document and no problems with that: I get a fine picture of the picture I have from what I copied from the captains log in a word document.

But when I then try to use photobucket and "browse" (I put in the wordfile with the picture)nothing happens. I think it is because my picture is in a word file and not for example a gif-file or bmp or whatever it is called.

Still hope that somebody out there in the big blue can help.

PS: I have only tried to send pictures to others via e-mail and attached files so you may maybe understand that I am a kind of novice in this field!

You have to directly link to the picture itself, not a document which contains a picture. This is most easily done using a site like Photobucket or Image Shack. Since the game saves the photos as bitmaps, you must re-save them as jpeg files, which are much smaller in size. You can get a photo editing program which allows you to customize the size of the saved file. I use Microsoft Picture It, but I'm sure you could download something freeware or shareware from the internet.

Once you have uploaded your photo to a hosting site, you have to copy the html code to your forum post. Someone posted an example of the html code needed to post photos. You must follow that format exactly or the photo will not display in your post. Your photo hosting site should provide the code with each picture. I use photobucket.com, which makes it easy for me to do so.

Thanks a lot kaleun for a very quick reply.

Sorry to admit it but I am not able enough with a computer to solve this transfer from document(word) to jpg. I really need some experts to help me with it.

The world of computers isn´t as simple as somebody try to make it look like! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

Thank,s, but still not workin in the proces from printscreen:

1) I take af printscreen in the game of the log
2) Close the game
3) Open microsoft word
4) rigth-click and put the picture in a new document

When I try to do as you say, rigth-click on picture in the open document (that now shows the last page of the log with my result) then on file in upperleft corner - file - save - as - I don´t have the choise in the drop-down list to chose to save as jpeg.

I am able to transfer photos to photobucket, so at the moment I need an instruction how to get the picture from the screen down into a jpeg.file. So simple it seems so apparantly impossible...!

Hm.

But thanks again

OK, I think I see what's going on.

You've pressed the PrintScreen key and you've got a screen print in memory (Window's Clipboard memory, to be more precise).

Don't use WORD. Click on Windows' START button, click on ALL PROGRAMS, click on ACCESSORIES in the list that appears, click on PAINT in the list of accesory programs that come included with Windows.

In PAINT, click on EDIT in the menu bar and select PASTE. You should now see your screen print in PAINT's work area.

Now click on FILE in the menu bar and select SAVE AS. You'll be prompted for a SAVE IN folder location, a FILE NAME and a FILE TYPE. Whatever location and name you give is your preference. For FILE TYPE, however, select JPEG.

It's that JPG file that you've just created, following the procedure here, that needs to be uploaded to the WEB.

Your likely problem with the above is the size of the file that will be created. It may be too large for Photobucket or Imageshack to accept but maybe not. In such cases, you would need to resize the file, i.e., shrink it down. In PAINT, you can do this be clicking on IMAGE in the menu bar and selecting STRETCH & SKEW. Usually reducing the vertical and horizontal resolutions both by 50% will do.

See? I'm not just the forum clown! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

My Gramps won the silver star in the phillipines during the WWII. Earned it through by having most of his right knee sheared off by a 20mm round whilst pulling injured members of his platoon back from a failed bunker attack.

His veterans grave site marker is very distinctive since it has an imprint of the medal right on it.

Here's his bio from the new World War II memorial in Wash DC...

SERVICE NUMBER 0-2036693. ENLISTED IN THE ARMY ON FEBRUARY 27, 1941 AND ROSE TO THE RANK OF STAFF SERGEANT. GRADUATED FROM OFFICER CANDIDATE SCHOOL, INFANTRY SCHOOL, BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA ON MAY 22, 1944. A 2ND LIEUTENANT, PLATOON LEADER FOR COMPANY E, 186TH INFANTRY, 41ST INFANTRY DIVISION DURING THE INVASION OF PALAWAN ISLAND, PHILIPPINES ON FEBRUARY 28, 1945. WOUNDED IN KNEE ON MARCH 2, 1945 AND AWARDED PURPLE HEART AND SILVER STAR FOR HIS ACTIONS. RECEIVED ASIATIC-PACIFIC THEATER RIBBON WITH 2 BATTLE STARS, PHILIPPINE LIBERATION RIBBON WITH ONE BATTLE STAR AND COMBAT INFANTRYMAN BADGE. RETIRED AS A CAPTAIN ON MAY 4, 1947 DUE TO INJURIES SUSTAINED IN COMBAT.

My father was born in 1930, so he was too young to serve in WW2. His father was too old to be a soldier, so he served on a small tanker which sailed up and the down the coast of Newfoundland. Maybe his boat was too small to be worthy of a torpedo, but I'll never know for sure, since he died when I was too young to be very interested in WW2.

I do have a great-uncle who served in WW1, fighting at Vimy Ridge at the age of 17. He survived, decorated, and lived on into his 90's. A large number of my father's uncles served, mainly in the merchant marine. I have vague memories of a great-uncle who spent a lot of time at my house as a kid, who still carried the mental scars of the war. Uncle Jim survived being torpedoed twice. On one occasion his friend died in a strafing attack while they floated in the water. Not too many Germans would do that, but he met one who did.

Recently I was digging through some old photos my mother had stashed away in a box. A number of them were air force men, sailors and soldiers. Even though I did not know these men, I felt a kinship with them which stirs in me some sort of pride to know that my relatives served when their country needed them.
