    AAR Support

    I wasnt sure if i should put this here (did so for maximum visibility) or in the AAR forum (seems like no general threads there, just AARs so i didnt do so). Lately some people in posts have been referring others to particular AARs in regards to nations and game elements so i thought id start this up to help any newbies (like me!) interested in maybe doing some AARs.

    Please feel free to post any sites or programs you feel are good for creating AARs. Alot of people use Paint.net i dabbled with it awhile back, i need to download it again. What sites do you like for pictures? How do you like to make arrows? cutouts? text? etc... Help the newbies!

    I use the following sites;

    photobucket.com for hosting pictures

    and

    docs.google.com for hosting documents

    Hope this helps!

    Can I suggest checking out the AARland FAQ - link is in my signature, where a lot of this is covered. If there is anything missing then start up a specific thread in the general AARland page - there are 2 or 3 at the moment on issues such as comments/writing/screenshots and so on. But starting a new one that all can comment on and that I'll add it to the FAQ if it ends up offering something new or worthwhile. In other words there are already a lot of general threads.
    Remember, whatever the question, the answer on 18 September is Yes ...

    Considering the amount of AARs that Paradox games spawn, wouldn´t it be cool if they added in some support for writing AARs directly into the games themselves?

    They already have. That was one of the motivations behind the extra screenshot options Johan put into DW (and all subsequent Paradox grand strategy games) IIRC.
