Tips and Tricks




Kode Screenshot

Pressing PrintScreen will capture an image of the screen as-is, just like anywhere else in Kodu. Pressing Shift-PrintScreen in the kode editor captures a clean image. This is an image with the cursor, help overlays and background removed.

Screenshots are saved in Documents\SavedGames\Boku
Normally Jpegs are saved. If you choose the clean option it will additionally save a Png file with transparent background which is nice for compositing in Photoshop or whatever tool you are using.

The clean option only works in the kode editor. In the rest of Kodu you still get the extra Png file but the images are exactly the same as pressing PrintScreen without Shift.
