How to take a Screenshot!
( Advice is to close chat box)
Players can quickly take a screenshot now using the Print Screen button on their keyboard. This will save the file in your C:/Program Files/KingsIsle Entertainment/Wizard101/Bin folder (note this will capture your entire screen, so if you are running Wizard windowed, it will capture everything on your screen) You will see the following text to let you know you took a screenshot. In your email make sure to state which image is A,B or C

Another way to take a screenshot using your Print Screen button. Follow these steps:
while in the game, press Alt+PrtScn buttons
Alt+Tab to desktop and start MSPaint or similar application
create new image file
press Ctrl+V or otherwise paste the clipboard content
save the file in a safe place you'll remember 

(Desktop is what I use) I would name your screenshot A,B or C
You can then either drag your screenshot into your email or add it as attachment to email to my contest email.

  2. Hello,

    I have two questions.

    1. Does the water pump count as a water tower?

    2. Does the dorm room have to based on a real fairy tale, fable, or folk tale that as been written/published, or can we make one up?

    Thanks,

    1. 1. No needs to be a tower. You can craft one that is a bit shorter.

      2. I would search the internet. There are literally 1000's to choose from. You can take one and make your own version of it.

  9. Hi. I'm Miranda Dreamsong (but will submit side character Brandon Dreamsong's dorm)

    I was curious whether in the screenshot with our wizard in it, if we can have the housing inventory open to use its zoomed out camera?

    ReplyDelete
  10. The one with your wizard must have your wizard in the screen shot with your name showing. Without using control G. Aslong as that is showing you can be in decorating mode. I would suggest using your Brandon wizard since its his dorm.
