How do I take screenshots? I need to know. :cry: Also, how do I upload my Episodes/levels to a website?

Press F12, but just make sure that you don't have any tabs open in SMBX when you're taking one.

Uploading episodes/levels is easy. Just zip up the folder containing the episode/level, go to a site like Mediafire (don't use Sendspace!) and upload it to there.

"NPCs", "Layers", "Block & Tiles" & etc. Don't have those visible in the editor when taking the screenshot.

New problem: when I take the screenshot, I can't find it in the screenshot folder.

Make sure that you have the editor window selected (and hopefully the pointer out of the way!) when you press F12, and you made a folder called "screenshots" (without the speech marks) in the SMBX folder. If you did it right you should hear a sound and a screenshot should appear in the screenshots folder. It'll be called "screenX" with X being the number of the screenshot.

Just Press F12 to take a screenshot. Make sure you have a folder called "Screenshots in the SMBX Folder.

If pressing F12 doesn't work, try pressing Fn and F12 at the same time. That's what worked for me, anyways.

You'll need to be more descriptive, Tyler. Do you have a screenshots folder? Are the screenshots not appearing in that folder when you press F12?

There is a more complicated way as of how to take screenshots in SMBX and that is by pressing the "Prt Scrn" (Print Screen) button which saves the entire screen onto your clipboard and then paste it inside your paint program. After that make sure you cut the area to the point where only your SMBX window is visible and then save it. Best to save it as a .PNG format for uploading it to specific image file hosting sites.
