How do I take a screenshot again?

Post by Venom » Tue Mar 28, 2017 9:09 pm

:?: Howdy all, I just got me gold version of I76 to work on XP for me. But I forgot how to take a screenshot in game. I have this old mousepad that allows you to stick a photograph in it. For years it's contained a picture of my old car from the game...but also years of spilled drinks have caused the photo to deteriorate...so I wanted to take a pic to replace it, but I forgot how to take a screenshot in game.

Try CTRL-P...or, conversely, join a game and ask someone with FRAPS to take one for you?

on XP I just used to hit printscreen and then open up mspaint and hit paste and that would work

but on bigger machines with win7 and up usually if you try to screencap in the game that way it shows up in weird colors on mspaint.. so the best way to screencap is to use FRAPS


hope this helps.
Bring water to a boil. Lightly salt and oil. Add pasta. Cook until al dente...

my win 8,
I hit windows button and printscreen.
then just find where they save to. works fine for me.

btw, go git you a nitro copy and come join us for a couple of hours tuesday nights......
usually racing but combat is an option.
also, if we have enough people, we can run CTF!
Hotsauce!!
