    Press print screen. You can also get fraps or any other screen capturing program.

              Nothing is supposed to happen when you hit the key, the image is simply buffered, all you have to do is paste it in any image editor.

                  What he means is that the image of the screen (created when you hit the 'Print Screen') button is temporarily stored in the Computer's memory. To access that image you have to open the 'Paint' programme (the simplest image editor around and the only one bundled with Windows) and follow the instructions given earlier. Let me recap those instructions in my own way.

                  1) Create the scene you wish to save
                  2) Click the 'Print Screen' button
                  3) Open 'Paint' (click Start button, go up to Accessories and it's in there)
                  4) Click 'Edit' and then 'Paste'
                  5) Voila! There's your screenshot!

                    I recommend running the game windowed while you're taking the screencaps, That way if you mess one up you don't need to reload the game.

                    IrfanView is better.

                          Screen Printing

                          Hi,

                          The methods listed above mostly work OK, but for some reason do not work with WinSPMBT when WinSPMBT is in "Fullscreen" mode. They do work if WinSPMBT is in Windowed mode. Selection between Windowed and Fullscreen can be made in the initial WinSPMBT welcome

                          Even The ScreenGrab program that I recommended earlier does not work with WinSPMBT in fullscreen mode.
