Is it bad to have 2 entries in one post?

No, that's completely allowed.

Man, in my opinion this will be hard, because I normally can't find anything funny in a game, and when something happens then when I am about to click PrintScreen, it's not there anymore. Ayayay.

The first thing I think of when I see something funny is to tap the Prnt Scrn button. This contest assumes most do.

I expect this to be one of our better contests. I have seen countless funny game screenshots before, so I know they are out there.

Try a certain program called Fraps. Runs quietly in the background and lets you take as many screenshots/videos as your HDD can stand (assignable hotkeys for both). It also doubles as a benchmark and lets you see your FPS in-game.

Yeah, I just remembered, I have FRAPS. It is a nice program. Too bad this contest can't contail videos, only pictures though. Thanks for the idea.

If you mean cropped or removal of something profane, no that wouldn't be a problem. Editing the photo to make it funny is not allowed.

what an EXCELLENT idea! I have a few screenies that have forced a chukle or two out of me!

I'll whittle them down and forward them on.

Brilliant!

Actually, I was thinking Photochopped to add something profane.
