    Default Screenshots

    Is there a way to take out the cursor when you take a screenshot? Is there any program that, when you take a screenshot with it, the cursor doesn't show up?

    I would suggest to simply put the cursor in the lower part of the screen, so it doesn't show in the action. I think the camera will pan if you put it completely down though.

    I had just figured out how to make the entire battle screen appear in the entire picture and only the cursor is messing it up. So putting it in the lower part of the screen would still show the cursor.

    or use PRNT SCRN, then tab off of EB and paste it into word. i think it removes the cursor b/c it does w/ MS Word.

    That hasn't happened for me. If it doesn't work for someone else either, you could always look for a homogenous place in the picture where you can put the cursor, and then just paint it over with the colour the spot would've had if the cursor weren't there. The sky is both an obvious and good option for this.

    You can get rid of that radar if you press F5. Get rid of the unit cards with F7. Then you'll have a whole screen of unobstructed slaughter, if the cursor wasn't there!

    If you put the cursor low enough it becomes pretty easy to crop it out.

    You gotta be kidding me... I had no idea, and I've been playing this damn game for 4 years! Wow, I thought it was a new feature in M2 where you could completely remove those, or at least have the slide option.

    Thanks for mentioning that korlon. Now I'll just have to let the regret sink in for all those thousands of screenshots that could have been thousands of times better...
