"Make Screenshot" don't work and the quality is very bad.
Any solution ?
Well, I have been taking screenshots of the modelviewer by simply using the PrintScreen button on my keyboard and pasting the resulting capture of my screen in something like MS Paint or Photoshop or Gimp (it's free, unlike Photoshop).
It should take a perfect snapshot of what appears on your screen and you can save it without any loss of image quality if you pick a decent format (.jpg especially if you save with MS Paint will kill the quality of your image but .bmp in that case will do (it's heavier tough). I don't remember if Paint can save in this format but if you have Gimp or Paint.net or a similar program I suggest saving in .png)
Hope this can help you and sorry if I'm confusing you with that talk about image formats!

Yeah thats one major flaw with the model viewer. Its extremely hard to get the camera in the position you want it
Hahah, I noticed. XD
I tried again, and found out that using "Load Weapon" never worked for me on standalone : the weapon model appeared but it was always appearing badly on screen (like having the camera half inside the gun or being super ultra-zoomed on the bonesaw handle) and there was no way to make it rotate or unzoom.
BUT, by simply using "Load Model" like for the characters, I was able to load a weapon on standalone and rotate/zoom/translate all around at leasure. :)
I edited my tutorial according to this new discovery. :)
