There's no good reason why the screenshot must be obtained using the integrated screenshot functionality. A screenshot is a screenshot. I don't think my score should be disqualified if the integrated screenshot functionality causes my computer to crash. As it sometimes does. And is why I always make another screenshot before using it. But whatever. I'm going to post my scores with whatever screenshot I have. If that ain't good enough .

It ain't good enough, and there is a reason.

Datafile required.

Nice attitude and first post BTW.
