Examples of rather advanced nature. If you’re not confident with making screenshots like these, then better go to the beginners page and learn the basics first.
In order to make advanced snapshots like the ones on my snapshots page, you first have to pick a level of your choice(usually it’s best to do this in multi). Make sure to pick a suitable level for the scene of the snapshot that you’re going to set up, unless if nothing else seems perfect, better choose any of the flat glitch texture levels, or any of the other levels. Next is the codes used for setting up the scenes. For the below example, the following codes will be used:
Conker Model Modifier(P1)
Conker Model Modifier(P2)
Player 1 animations display (C.Guru)
Press D-pad up to change the characters animation
Player 2/Cpu 1 animations display(C.Guru)
Press D-pad up to change the characters animation
Player 1 Speed Adjuster
Player 2/Cpu 1 Speed Adjuster
Player Control Switch(P1P2P3P4)
Press D-pad Up to Commit Suicide(Player 1)
Start in multiplayer mode(Press D-pad Left on controller 1)
Move Conker ANYWHERE (Player 1) (C.Guru)
(before we begin this example, it is a good idea to frequently savestate the scene you’re trying to achieve, as something will very likely go wrong if not careful. I always do this for safety sakes.)
For this snapshot we pick the Throne Room level(level digit 18), and have character 1 as The Panther King(digit 76), and the 2nd character as the tall, skinny throne guarding weasel(digit 11). In the following picture, both characters screens are visible at once. This is normally not wanted, so your character has to be killed in some way, either by letting him fall into endless space below or using the ”Press D-pad Up to Commit Suicide” code above in order to eliminate the second player screen.
Now, by using the Player Control Switch code, set your character to be uncontrolable, and move the weasel towards the throne so he faces in front of the king, as seen on this pic.
Next, set the weasel to uncontrolable, and you’ll now have control over The Panther King. Set his size so that he properly fits in his chair. Setting the size of the weasel is also important, because in some cutscenes, the game resizes the character models to an fixed size in order to make them not look so small. This also applies here, because if they were at normal size, and the level model are not at the appropiate size (usually levels wholly intended for cutscenes), it would just look unnatural in some way… but it’s your choice if you want the characters to be at normal size or not, this is just a example.
Now, by using the ”Move Conker ANYWHERE” code, position the Panther King so that he looks to be sitting in his chair, as in the following screenshot(just have some patience, and adjust his direction and height position until it looks right).
Next is, if not already done, correcting the weasel’s position so that he stands on the first stairstep. Lastly, what’s left is setting their correct animations, which is done with the animation display codes for Player 1 and Player 2(11 for the Panther King, and 07 for the weasel), and correcting the camera a little, which we do with this code: 8109FA80 3CEE. Before we take the screenshot, better make sure to stop their animations at the desired position with the player speed adjusting codes, and the final scene will be like the pic below.
Making a savestate at this point is optional, but it’s best to do so. Now grab some screen ripping utility like SRip32(i’m using this app for capturing N64 emulator shots), and now you have your first conker snapshot that you worked so hard on setting up! While the result may not look exactly as in these example screens, just think of this as a way of learning the main steps in Conker snapshots making, and over time, you’ll be mastering this within almost no time. Forget not to save it in PNG format rather than JPEG. I personally don’t really like JPG, as it is a lossy format. This snapshot i’d call ”Panther King and His Milk”. If you want, you could give it an humorous description or something to explain what exactly is happening, like this;
Panther King: Hey, where is it!!
Panther King: My MILK!
Weasel: Oh, that one.. er, my liege, sorry to say this, but we’re out of milk right now.
Panther King: We’re out of milk?? No way, I want my milk NOW!
Weasel: Ok, Ok! You know where i can get some more milk perhaps?
Panther King: Just go and buy some over at the local food store. It’s not that complicated! I need it now, right NOW!!
Weasel(shaking in terror): Alright, i’ll go and get you some more milk then.
Panther King: And you’d better come back as soon as possible.
Weasel: Ok, i’ll be on my way.
Panther King: You know how it gone for your fatter buddy. I don’t wanna cut the nose of yet another weasel, again!
Weasel: Err… yeah, that sure ain’t very nice. Ok, goodbye, goodbye.
… but, if you don’t want to, then you don’t have to…
