I have trouble taking screenshots while FLYING WITH MY DRAGON. The camera angle goes back again....IN MOBILE!!! I know that you have to put two fingers on the screen and drag, but it doesn't work while flying. I have to go through a long process to get a flying screenshot..... any help?

XD I know the pain...

I generally have to use four fingers to change the angle and take the screenshot.... I use an Ipad so it's a little easier to position everything. Generally use two fingers to get the angle you want, then use your free hand for the power button and then your pinky for the home button.... This is assuming this is on IOS.... Any other and I have no idea mate XD Good luck to you

Oof

I can't say the same for the pc version. I have to reach for the print screen button, shift, arrow keys and left mouse button all at the same time. Oh and don't forget trying to hide the mouse cursor as you fly and crash into a wall.

 

Honestly I wish SOD would impliment some sort of "camera view mode" where it'll make people who screenshot themselves and their dragons easier x_x

They actually did... It's the Ctrl and + or - on the number pad. It'll freeze your screen for a bit, but keep pressing it and it'll eventually change camera angles for you :P

Hmm

So far it just kinda bugs everything, but it does work! Kinda confused what the - and + do. And when I get stuck, changing maps does fix it :')

Yeah, I think you have to click something on the keyboard to change the angle of the camera..... I think it's.... alt... and.... :T..... idk.... alt and left click to move it? and alt and right click to rotate? I don't quite remember..... play around with it and I'll see if I can go find it... XD

Just what I wanted!

Thanks!  I've been wondering how to get a fixed camera position ever since watching SilverWillowWing's "Dusk Lightning" series.  Where did you get that image?

I normally use two fingers to keep the angle I want, and then use my free hand to take the screenshot.
