Welcome to the fifth edition of the Screenshot of the Week!

Submissions are now closed!

Vote for your favourite screenshot below!

To start with, congratulations to the winner of the previous contest! arghtype's submission of a dark soul's rendition of a bat signal took the first spot with 23 upvotes! Here it is in all its beauty:

Arghtype's screenshot

To submit a screenshot, simply post it as an answer to this question. After a few clarifications on previous competitions, we've compiled this handy list of requirements, so please take note of the following:

  • One screenshot per post, and one post per person, please!
  • Limited picture modifications are allowed, such as cropping, simple filters, and blurring of identifying info such as names, but not adding other images or text.
  • To ensure a fair playing field, please post screenshots you've taken yourself rather than ones you found online.
  • Stack Exchange’s Code of Conduct still applies - so if it would be unacceptable to post normally, it’s unacceptable here.

Also, try to avoid pictures that include spoilers. We want everyone to be able to enjoy this contest, so the less spoilers the better.

How long will the contest run?

We will accept submissions for a week, until 19:00 UTC of 2020-02-03, then have a second week-long period where only voting will be accepted. This is to give every submission, even those posted at the end of the first week, a chance to be voted on by everyone.

After the end of the second week, at 19:00 UTC of 2020-02-10, we will count upvotes only to determine the winning screenshot, which will be featured as the winner in the next Screenshot post.


Theme

This week's theme is: Glitches and Bugs

Got an interesting, funny, absurd or awkward screenshot that showcases a bug, glitch or other non-intended game behavior? That's this week is all about!

    Theme idea: Moments before Disaster. e.g. Mining a block just before falling into lava in Minecraft, Blocking yourself with no escape in Bomberman, etc etc – Robotnik Jan 28 at 4:05
  • Are animated gifs of clips allowed? Sometimes it is hard to show a bug or glitch with just one image. – Travis J Jan 28 at 18:00

    @TravisJ, after discussing with the other mods, right now we want to keep it to just screenshots to keep the playing field even for those who can't create animated gifs. might be cool to do a specific theme for animated stuff sometime – Dragonrage Jan 29 at 5:39

Bugs you say? With 92 original and valid Minecraft bugs reported I feel especially qualified for this! (But I'm not as crazy as this guy with 734 bugs.)

I'm not sure if this is technically a bug, but you can actually sleep outside of beds in Minecraft. It requires a bit of skill to get right, but with enough sideways momentum at the exact moment of entering the bed, you can bounce on it while sleeping and bounce out of it. I used this to create this screenshot of a watery grave:

Here are some more awesome bug screenshots:

And some that are not made by me:

    One post per person? But I have so many awesome bug images. :( Alright, I'll delete all except one. – Fabian Röling Jan 29 at 17:11
  • Just save them for another competition :) – dly Jan 29 at 17:51
  • Nah, I have way more awesome non-bug related screenshots. I'll have enough content for the other competitions. Is my entry OK like this now? Or should I add a disclaimer that people shouldn't vote based on the links? – Fabian Röling Jan 29 at 18:59
  • @FabianRöling 'Glitches and Bugs' will most likely be a recurring screenshot theme ;). And yeah that's fine for now – Robotnik Jan 29 at 23:39
  • BTW, I found out recently that this bed bouncing while sleeping is actually a Bukkit bug. – Fabian Röling Aug 25 at 7:28

In , you can see a lot of stuff outside the map, or when you glitch into unintended areas.

So many things, like, the fire forgetting how it works: That's not how fire works

Some very well-watered trees in StoneHearth

Trees in water

A while ago in one of the earlier builds of the game, you could still plant trees anywhere, even if there was water there. While I don't have any photos, I remember once you cut the trees down, it left a big hole where the water should be.

Peebee leaning against an invisible railing

I posted this in chat a while back as a demonstration of just how broken Mass Effect: Andromeda was, even in small ways. There's more where this came from. For reference, Peebee is supposed to be leaning her arms against the railing, not awkwardly trying to sit on it.

Abstraction in , when the lighting was extremely buggy.

    for others like myself: this screenshot is not vertical and actually has over exposed part to the right – arghtype Jan 29 at 3:17

    First I thought this was an actual photo, just with a smaller than usual colour palette (lines in the sky). I was wondering why you called this "extremely buggy lighting" until I saw the right half. – Fabian Röling Jan 29 at 9:54
  • @FabianRöling Funny that 'why on earth would he post an actual photo' was not the first thing you were wondering about :) – Joachim Jan 29 at 11:19

This is what happens when you accidentally portal outside the map on the Plains of Eidolon.

C&C Renegade... oh I loved that game - and my Spongebob skins for the explosives.

Here someone tried to drive that tank over the wall and got stuck on it. At least it can't get stolen there.
