I've been thinking of a game for the forum and I came up with this: its when one user takes a screenshot from a pink panther film and posts it, the other members guess what film its from. Sounds pretty simple? For those of you who are not sure how to take a screenshot from a DVD all you need to do is insert it into your computer, run the film, when it gets to the scene you would like to capture press 'alt' and 'print screen' You would then paste it to a image program, then upload it on a hosting site e.g www.imageshack.us and then post it here.
If this is successful we could expand it to other films that Pink Panther actresses actors have starred in.
I'll get us started with an easy one... tomorrow (Imageshcak is down )
nice idea, Dreyfus... for those of you who use PowerDVD, there's a simpler way to grab screencaps, too... when you're watching the movie, if you pause it on the shot you want to capture, there's a little camera symbol in your control panel on the program... click that, and it saves your image to a predetermined location on your computer (you can tell it what location if you go into the program's "configuration" section...
i'm sure if anyone has trouble getting screencaps or uploading them, you can ask Dreyfus or myself for help... also, i think it'd be a good idea to point out that you shouldn't be required to be able to do screencaps in order to participate in the game... if you want to guess what film a shot is from, i think that should be perfectly acceptible... then if you're not willing/able to give the new cap, just say so, and we'll leave it to whomever wants to to jump in and provide the next one... sound good?
