Hi, i was wondering how to take a screenshot in the demo. Didnt see any key for it in the key bindings. Then i went through the .ini files and saw something that said scrollLock=screenshot and tried that but i dont think it worked as i did not see the screenshot saved anywhere (maybe i didnt look good enough though). I tried taking a screenshot with the printscreen key but they always come out way too dark. Anyone know?

Thanks

Why did you have to cater for the dumb ***** who buy consoles over PCs!!!! :O


j/k but seriously why did you choose them OVER us. You could have at least treated us equally!

I use a program calls FRAPS. Its a free program(up to version 1.9) and very simple to use.
You set a key bind for capturing either a screenshot(bitmap) or a video(uncompressed .avi). You start FRAPS up, it runs in the background and when you want a screen shot you simply hit the key you set and and it saves the screenshot into the FRAPS folder. You can take as many screens as you want. This is the benefit over printscreen.

Read my post jackass, i said i already tried that but the pics come out REALLY dark.

And yeah ThorsHamburger, i'm thinking about just getting FRAPS.
I heard it's a great program.
