Sorry for the misunderstanding. The rules called for an "original, unaltered in-game screenshot", and using demorecord does not "alter" a screenshot. "Unaltered" referred to not using any photoshopping or image manipulation. We wanted to see actual in-game scenes with no post treatment done to the screen that was taken. I will try to include information about using demorecord to take your screenshot, and clarify what "alterations" are, the next time we run the contest.
So, he took advantage of an unknown game exploit, and you guys rewarded him for doing so?
How is that fair exactly?
After looking up 'demorecord' in Google, I discovered that it dealt with exploiting chatbox commands.
