Will we be able to take screenshots in the beta weekends (not sharing them though)? I really like taking SS for memory's sake ;b

This is pretty much a given. If Anet would disable the ingame screenshot button for whatever reason, you could always push the Print Scrn button on your keyboard and paste it into paint. :)

EDIT: okay, I found this tweet in the other NDA thread in Q&A:

Correct. Nothing can be recorded. No pics. You can't even tell anyone that you are in (if you get in). No bragging rights. RB

So apparently, you are not allowed to make pics :S

I have no idea how they are going to enforce that though, but that's at least what Regina has to say on it.

Feeling your post got wrongfully deleted? Thread locked? Want to chat? Send me a PM. I won't bite :eek:

I'm sure it's fine, until you publish them... that's against the NDA.

I just asked a similar question just about an hour ago. You cannot record any footage or pics, there was an exception for the media. It's in the questions I posted here:

I am sure you can take screenshots and record video for personal use.  There is no way they can monitor that...

...but if you share that media before the NDA expires...you are in trouble.

Nope you cannot, the link someone found me is from a twitter account, I think he said Regina who works at Anet and it say's you cannot. See my link otherwise here's what was said:

"GuildWars2: @Lokik_S Correct. Nothing can be recorded. No pics. You can't even tell anyone that you are in (if you get in). No bragging rights. ~RB

@YamaTheResilien The press were given an exception for video capture. Those participating in a closed beta event are under STRICT NDA. ~RB"

You may be able to publish them after the game releases... check the NDA first.

That's what I was trying to find out to be sure in my post but from what is says from the horses mouth:

"Correct. Nothing can be recorded. No pics. You can't even tell anyone that you are in"

So that says you can't record or take pictures while your under the NDA. Plus there's no solid info about exactly what you can or rather can't do until someone receives an actual invite with an NDA agreement (which can't be disclosed either lol). It doesn't say any footage you take during it can be shown after it is lifted, you can't record it or take pics during it.

That comment is as close to a solid answer we can get other than receiving a beta invite with an NDA agreement.
