Taking screenshots for HOL

Before the FAQ gets an update, a short HowTo about taking screenshots for use on HOL. Again we had a contribution that wasn't usable because of missing pixel information due to a bad filter setting in WinUAE

The easiest way to prevent any problems is to use FS-UAE, as it will by default save three versions of the screenshot:

(1) The full overscanned / uncropped amiga video frame without any filters or scaling applied
(2) Same as (1), but cropped according to the current zoom setting
(3) A screenshot in the classic sense, exactly what you see on screen with all filters applied

The first kind is optimal for processing. Just upload the screenshots with '_full' in the filename.

When you're using WinUAE, tick the 'before filtering' checkbox on the output panel.

I hope this short post will help to increase the number of usable screenshots in the future

Or simply tick "before filtering" checkbox in output panel.
