No logos on the screenshots. I have been using the free version for years. It's really great for all your screenshot needs. Only one minor problem: the free version only supports bmp images, not jpg. So I keep converting them to jpg every now and then, so that my hard drive doesn't fill up with images.

For this purpose there is also a free batch program Multiple Image Resizer. It says resizer but allows many conversion options without necessity to save file by file.

Ah, good, then I shall try that. :2thumbsup: thanks!

and the .bmp thing is not really different from the situation now (.tga or .bmp). for conversions, I am used to irfanview's "batch" mode. :)

Yeah, I use IrfanView for batch conversion as well. Btw, IrfanView also has screenshot-taking capabilities. I used it for a while, but found it problematic (it would sometimes not grab the whole screen, and similar such problems). You can try that as well. :)

Not all. I have broken off one Level because of constant Lagging. It's not funny to play a Level with FPS between 10 and 30 (mostly well below 30)

Phew, that's it, just posted my last review. Now, I have to say a great big thank you to everybody involved in creating the amazing objects, textures, music etc., for this year's competition. What a superb job you've all done. Take a bow. :D

Seriously, with the sheer amount of 'stuff' on offer, the builders were able to produce a surprising variety of looks and feels so that I didn't find myself suffering from 'wad fatigue' at all, even though there were more levels than ever before. I think that speaks volumes for the skill of all involved.

And yes, many many thanks to the builders (whoever you are) for so many hours of entertainment.

Damn, I shall no longer have an excuse to ignore the housework. Ah well.

Just finished my last level and submitted all reviews to the boss. It's amazing the quality of these levels, considering the short time they're built in. Wish I had half that talent! 8)

And, of course, kudos to the people responsible for making it happen in the first place! :2thumbsup:

With the two fabulous Advent calendars keeping everybody busy, I did not even dare to post a reminder, but here on Christmas Eve, let me point out now that there is one more week to go and play and review those BtB Levels that you did not get around to playing yet... :D

And don't forget to submit your builder guesses if you have not yet done so... ;) - The prizes are currently en route from the US Square Enix Offices to my home... :)

I'm on my last level, and I have a backlog of 11 reviews to post. Still, that's doable in 4 days - I remember that last year I posted my last review just minutes before the deadline. :-P

Oh, and I have to post my guesses - not hard at all ... I have a pretty good idea in case of 17 of the levels, so only 8 will be wild guesses. :D
