Screenshot tips:

In order to take good screenshots, you will need to at least turn off the HUD. 4th Person View or Spectator mode might also be useful. The code below binds all necessary commands to toggle HUD, toggle 3rd/4th person view, and take a screenshot. Simply:
  1. copy-paste it to a text file
  2. save the file as camera.cfg in your MBII folder
  3. type /exec camera in console to activate it during gameplay
Of course, you can change the binded keys if you want to.

set d1 "cg_thirdpersoncameradamp 0.0 ; set nextmode vstr d2 ;echo 4th Person View"
set d2 "cg_thirdpersoncameradamp 0.3 ; set nextmode vstr d1 ;echo Default View"
set viewmode "vstr d1"

set d3 "cg_draw2D 0; set hudmode vstr d4"
set d4 "cg_draw2D 1; set hudmode vstr d3"
set hudmode "vstr d3"

bind 7 "vstr hudmode"
bind 8 "vstr viewmode"
bind 9 screenshot
If you really want to go all out on your artistic abilities, you can take a demo of the moment you want to capture and then use jamme to take the screenshot.
Download and installation instructions for jamme can be found here
Basic controls can be found in mme/cmds.txt after installation. These include:
  • /view camera -> to toggle to camera view
  • primary mouse + A/D/S/W -> to move the camera
  • C -> to pause the demo
  • 5 -> to remove the jamme HUD
  • /speed <value> -> to change the speed of the playback
  • /screenshotPNG -> to take the screenshot

I guess I enter as a team (with qwerty) since the ultimate snipe was already made long time ago:
(If you want to give extra points, this camera trick was done with pug mod which was a bit harder to use than JAMME :p)

I am apparently late, but I wanted to sign up the poor BH from this video to the contest. Other credits go to myself for the basic popsnipe and Beethoven for the music.
