Game into Summer in style with BTR by entering to win a rare NVIDIA 64GB GeForce GTX USB Flash drive and a 30-game pack from Green Man Gaming that includes Mass Effect: Andromeda Origins.  All that you have to do to enter to win these great prizes is to post an Ansel screenshot.

NVIDIA has created a limited edition GeForce GTX replica thumb drive and they have been giving a total of 1080 of them away to media who attended meetings at NVIDIA’s E3 booth and to a few lucky GeForce gamers (out of millions) who downloaded the GeForce Experience.   Well, BTR is went to E3 and we got one of these GTX USB Flash drives for ourselves plus we received an extra one from NVIDIA!   So we are giving our extra GeForce 64GB USB Flash drive away to the winner of BTR’s Summer Contest along with a Green Man Gaming Level 30 loot pack (that includes Mass Effect: Andromeda Origins)!

The 64GB GTX Flash Drive is rather large and it is pictured next to an Xbox One wireless adapter and a regular sized Kingston USB flash drive.
Contest Details

BTR would like to reward our community members who contribute so much to our site.  This contest is open to all current members of BTR’s community over 18 years of age, and also to those who sign up during the contest.  We will ship the GTX USB Flash Drive at BTR’s expense to a winning resident of North America while the PC game prize has no unusual geographical restrictions and the games may be activated on Steam or Origin.  If the winner lives outside of North America, we will ship the GTX drive at the winners expense if they choose.  If not, the GTX Flash drive will be awarded to the runner up in the contest.

To enter to win the GTX Flash Drive and game pack, just post an Ansel screenshot in our community contest thread.   That’s it!  For those who may not have access to Ansel or to an Ansel-supported game, a regular screenshot will be accepted although we would love to see our members’ creativity in composing Ansel screenshots.

To be eligible to win, you must enter by July 23, 2017 at 11:59 PM.  All of the entries will be put into a drawing, and a program (luck) will decide the grand prize winner and the runner-up (if necessary).  Each contestant may make one entry although multiple screenshots are welcomed.  The winner will be announced on BTR’s community forum in the contest thread by 10 PM PDT on July 25, 2017 and has 24 hours* to respond to BTR by replying to the announcement in the contest thread or by email.  BabelTechReviews will ship the GTX flash drive directly to the winner within ten days, but the 30 game codes will will be awarded within 24 hours after they respond.


The following two Ansel captures are from Mass Effect: Andromeda:

NVIDIA Ansel is a great new way to capture in-game photographs. Think of Ansel as a camera that is integrated into a game that allows you to capture gameplay screenshots that were never before possible. When Ansel is supported in game, players can move the camera to any angle the dev allows, apply filters, use super resolution capture, and even capture in 360 for viewing in VR.  You can learn more about these features on NVIDIA’s Ansel Technology page.

BTR is still a small community, and there is a very good chance that you may be a winner of a very rare GTX flash drive and 30 games if you enter.

… Happy Summer, Good Luck, and happy gaming!

Don't have any brilliant regular screenshots either, really but attached is a Fallout 4 screenshot that happened to be in the folder, so it will do for this competition.  It is me and my buddy MacCready on the hunt in the game.

I'll attach the image when the file attachment issue get fixed (I thought this had already been addressed?!, file type is .jpg btw), using something like imgur degrades the screenshot quality since they auto recompress all uploads and resize anything larger than 1080p.

I know that some of us don't or can't use Ansel which is why there is no requirement to use it to enter the contest.
- BtW, GFE is easy to install and also uninstall just by doing another clean install and not checking the GFE box.

How big of a file are you wanting to upload? I just now increased the maximum size for a .jpeg/.jpg from 500KB to 1MB for the contest.

Try again and please compress it further if it is too large. We don't need .bmp or high quality .jpg for these screenshots.
It looks great! The compression did not ruin it. Thank-you for your entry.
For the same reason of not installing GFE I won't be posting an Ansel screenshot, instead I'll post an ARK: Survival Evolved screenshot I had on Steam :)
It's <1mb anyway so I haven't done anything with it to fit the 1mb cap.

Good luck everyone! :)
Sorry, no Ansel. I spent a good hour trying different games but couldn't manage to get it work. I press Alt+F2 but nothing happens. So I used my good old Fraps instead:

I added a new image upload plugin, its right below the comment section, let me know if this works better or not :hi:
Thanks Mario! I hope you are feeling better!
No worries!

Yeah I am finally feeling alive. I now know how horrible Pneumonia feels :(

Just tried this out and it wasn't working for me either. Found this solution and worked like a charm :)
Quote:Go to Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\Ansel\Tools and click NvCameraConfiguration, then make sure you set NvCamera to 'enabled' and click Save. After that Ansel should work.
