Nice, easy screenshots

Here I'll show you how to get really neat screenshots, quick and easy!

1. Taking and localizing screenshots

When in-game, playing or as a spectator, press "f5" any time to take a screenshot. Do this as many times as you like as you don't have to paste them somewhere in order to save them.

Close or minimize (Alt+Tab) Counter-Strike and open my computer. Browse to the following directory to find the screenshots you've taken:

[STEAM DIRECTORY]\steamapps\common\counter-strike source\cstrike\screenshots

For me it would look like this:

D:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\counter-strike source\cstrike\screenshots

2. Removing the HUD

Open up the console and type in "sv_cheats 1" (You have to be admin or on a local server)

If you want to increase the picture quality (Which you obviously want to) put in "jpeg quality 100" in the console.

  • To remove the main HUD details type in "cl_drawhud 0"
  • To remove the gun model type in "r_drawviewmodel 0"
  • To fly around freely type in "noclip"

OR

UPDATE
To remove the cinematic bars in spectator mode type in "hidepanel all" in the console. (Thanks dfggf, nice name btw)

    Detail: Very Detailed. Readability: Very easy to read. Usefulness: Not very usefull. Most people already know how to do this. Try to pick a not so much covered topic. Although it would help new players new to the game. 7/10
