I'm getting carried away now that I know Torchlight's Pause Mode (ENTER Key) spins the camera slowly to give you some really awesome screenshot angles. It's a great way to capture the skills effects in action (or just to get closer screenies of your characters).

I thought it might be worth a separate thread.  icon_cool

Here's a few examples of Pause Mode. I've found it cool just to fire things off in town and hit Enter quickly...





Lightning bomb. I found it useful early, not using much late.

The rifle's the unique Ice Dragonne, by far the most wonderfully ridiculous weapon I've ever seen in a game.  icon_cool

I use the free version of the FRAPS frame rate utility (http://www.fraps.com/). I actually don't use it for FPS numbers anymore, just for its screenshots (saved as one of 4 selectable formats) and taking gameplay movies (though the free version severely limits the length). I really oughta register it at some point.

FRAPS lets you assign the screenshot and movie-recording keys to any key you like (I use the + key on numeric keypad for screenies fwiw). It has a low footprint and doesn't have any discernible impact on performance afik.

I gotta go eat, do laundry etc.  Hope to see others' splashy pix later. I haven't put much time in with the Alchemist and I'd love to see his handiwork in pause mode.  icon_smile

Shift+F9 is the default command for screen shots.

Here's a few Warrior "show off" pics. I haven't memorized the skill names, but I'm sure others know them by heart.  icon_smile

Found a cool chest armor that really looks good on my vanquisher!

Got a nice rare ballista crossbow. It seems to have a different graphic than regular ballistas (the Steampunk look would have fit in well in Silverfall). A good mix of physical and electrical damage, but I need to do some Enchanting of it (my first try failed).



In use (I think this is just Ricochet warming up):


I use Seeker a lot:

These screens do a good job showing just how busy the screen can get. Sometimes I have a heck of a time figuring out what's going on. Can you imagine how nuts it would be if the game DID have multiplayer  retard

My pet summons zombies (3) and Skeleton Warriors (up to 2 at a time). It gets pretty amusing when I actually am battling enemy zombies or skeleton warriors (there's no friendly fire - just sometimes I find myself trying to click repeatedly on a friendly pet). confused I wouldn't be surprised if the MMO version does something to differentiate players (maybe put a colorful circle around a character's feet or something).

From zoomed out overhead, it's generally easier to see what's going on. I spend a lot of time backtracking my Vanquisher, sometimes just so I can keep a clear view of what to target. icon_smile
