G'day Bob,Easy;Ctrl + Tab gets the screen shot and saves it in the Fly1 II directory as a *.bmp fileSreen shots MUST NOT be greater than 125 KB so resize the image and save as a *.jpg file.Then post to the forum by adding it as an attachment.Click on "click here to choose your file" and a new window box will open. Browse and select your image file. Then select "upload".You must not close the window until you receive confirmation that your file has been uploaded.Then close the window and click on "post message".That's it.Cheers,Roger @YSSY

Bob,I would also mention that the Screenshot command is in the key assignments list - I believe it's in the Global group. If you don't want to use Ctrl+Tab (it makes yellow arrows appear in the scene when you're in the cockpit), assign any key you want - I use F12.You can shoot as many shots as you want in a flight - they will be numbered sequentially.

G'day Randall,Mate you can set drawCockpitArrows=0 in the Fly.ini and never be pestered by the arrows again. :-)Cheers,Roger @YSSY

G'day Bob,Randal brought up a good point. If you don't want the big yellow arrows to spoil your internal views then either assign another keystroke to screenshot or set drawCockpitArrows=0 in the Fly.ini file.Cheers,Roger @YSSY

A good point, Roger! Personally, I enjoy the one-finger method. :-)
