Problem with taking screenshots

Recommended Posts

I'm always getting the panel in the shot, even when I'm in spot view, I've got 2x AA on and am running XP SP1, no menu bar either. Does anyone know of a fix?

Well went back to the 29.42s, default settings, 8x AF and 4xS AA and looks beautiful! Thanks. :-)Greg_________________________ "Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return"-Leonardo Da Vinci

You don't say anythng about running dual monitors, but if you are and you have your panel on the second monitor, you will get a picture of whatever is on the second monitor right along side the picture on the primary monitor.If you are running dual monitors try disabling the second while you are taking the screen shot.

Yeah, I'm using the 29.42's as well, very good drivers. Never did like the 30.82's. :-)Ryan-Flightpro08 :-coolVATSIM Pilot/ControllerZLA ARTCC Controller 1 (C-1)SAN TRACON Lead [link:www.taxiwaysigns.com]Taxiwaysigns.com Scenery Designer-----------------------------My "Home Made" System Specs:Intel Pentium 4 2.2GHz ProcessorTurbo Gamer ATX Mid-Tower with 420W Power SupplyEPoX 4G4A Motherboard with Intel 845G ChipsetVisiontek XTASY GeForce4 128MB Ti4600 (Det 29.42 WHQL Drivers)512MB PC2100 DDR RAM40GB Matrox 7200RPM Hard DriveWindows XP Home Edition SP1*No CPU or GPU Overclocking*3dMark2001SE Score: 11298

ALT+PrintScreen will NOT capture the primary monitor....It captures the ACTIVE monitor; i.e. the one where the title bar is highlighted.PrintScreen and ALT+PrintScreen are Windows commands.(1) To make a copy of the active window, press ALT+PRINT SCREEN. (2) To copy the entire screen as it appears on your monitor, press PRINT SCREEN.

I use FSScreen with Windows XP Pro with no problems plus with FSScreem I can take as many screen shots as I want just by using the Print Screen key and retrive them later where they are stored in FSScreen. The only problem is that they are stored as BMPs, but you can rename them to jpg. It is a free utility.
