Auto Screenshot
August 4th, 2004
Getting the exact scores at the end of the match has always been a pain since BG continues to give capture points after the timelimit has expired. However, there is a built in HL function that automatically takes screenshot for you the exact moment the timelimit ends. Here's how you do it:
  1. Go to your Steam\SteamApps\your@email.com\half-life\bg folder.
  2. Open config.cfg in Notepad.
  3. Scroll down to the command hud_takesshots "0"
  4. Change the 0 to a 1 so its now hud_takesshots "1"
  5. Save the file and close it.
If it's not there (it should be near the other hud_... commands), then add hud_takesshots "1" to the file and save it. Screenshots will automatically be taken at the end of every round and will be put in your BG folder. I recommend that everyone enables this command so there is no debate over scores at the end of a round. With this setting on, everyone should have the same scores at the end of a round.

Perhaps we can convince the BG Dev team to add a toggle for this command in the in-game Settings menu for the next BG release.

I think that would be a really good idea.
