Mate i cannot for the life of me get this to work!! i have tried your alt and f9 after making up the screenshot folder and nothing happens, i also moved the screenshot into the data section of fm to see if that helped (i sometimes find that downloads have to not only go in the fm10 folder but also moved into the data folder) but still no joy!!

Please help me as i have a wonderful tactic i would like to upload but want some screenshots to go with it. cheers

I find an easier way to take screenshots is this... during the game go OPTIONS > PREFERENCES > SHORTCUTS then scroll down to the bottom and select SAVE SCREENSHOT then change the shortkey to something simple like S or X. Now when looking to take a screenshot simply press S or X. In my case I didn't have to create a SCREENSHOT folders.. one was automatically made when i used this method. Hope it helps

I don't think there is a guide on this and i have seen a fair few people asking how to take a screenshot so i am going to show you what to do


Step 1
You need to create a screenshot folder you can do this by going to Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2010 and then create a new folder called screenshots.


Step 2
When you are on the game and you are on the screen you want to take a screenshot of press ALT + F9 and then that will take the screenshot and that will now be in your screenshot folder

Step 3 Uploading the screenshot onto FM-Base
When you are posting you will see a paper clip icon.? All you do is click that icon and then click Choose then you will need to find the screenshot and that is in the folder you have just created so go to that folder and double click on the image you can upload 6 images at a time but if you do decide to upload more it will take longer to upload so you have decided how many you want to upload press Upload it will now say Uploading File(s) - Please Wait the upload will be complete once that has gone then all you have to do is post and the screenshots will appear on your post


BTW - If you don't want to go to Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2010 all the time if you right click in the screenshot folder and select create shortcut you will get a new file which you can place anywhere you want and they will also appear in there when you press ALT + F9


Thanks Hope This Helped :)
Alright mate, awesome thread however mine says 'Invalid File', would you happen to know why? Thanks in advance.

High Regards,
The Villan.
