wot replay is not a video file its a special game file. You cant gif it unless you use a screen recording software to record the entire game and then gif that

Does he have to record the whole game? Or, can he just record a part he wants to 'gif' and go from there?

Doesnt matter. You need to have some way of converting your replay into some video file. Recording half a second or recording 15 hours doesnt matter as long as you record the part you want and it is a video file

If you have an nvidia card then you can use shadowplay to record video. Simply start the replay then once it gets to the bit you want to turn into a gif start recording. Then you can turn the resulting video file into a gif.

I screen record a replay. (Windows ten allows you to do this by pressing WIN+G in a replay to save it out as a video format.) 

Upload the video to Youtube and publish it.

Copy the Video URL that's created after the video is published. 

Head to Imgur and select the create a post option. 

Select the video to GIF option at the bottom. 

Paste the URL from Youtube. 

Select the Start and end for the GIF.

When the Gif is done on Imgur. Hover your mouse of the down arrow next to the copy link option and select the "Get Share Links" option.

Select the BB Code Forums link and select "Copy"

Then on our forums select the add a picture option. 

Delete the [ img ] and [ / img ] before and after the URL and select okay. 

Also make sure the link ends in ".gif " If it ends in " .mp4 " you can change it to " .gif " and it should work as well. 

 

Note: sometimes you may have to wait a little bit before you press the "OK" to have it post in the preview properly. 


Hope this helps. :D

I don't recall him ever being negative while posting LOL.  That is odd, kind of like the -69squllion xp bug in the tank module window.

Once upon a time, KrzyBoop broke the forums by somehow posting the same thread several thousand times with one mouse click. Deleting the threads resulted in a substantially negative post count.
