Omnius -> Screen Captures (11/19/2012 6:07:19 PM)

I've been trying to get a screen capture of the game to send to a friend but can not get the screen capture to work properly. I read the Windows instructions carefully and have tried numerous times to make it work but so far I haven't been able to get a screen capture to last to paste into Paint, all I get is a black screen. Outside of the game I can make screen captures work just fine. Is there some trick to getting a screen capture working in Windows 7 and ToF?

Hi Omnius.

I'm pretty sure that the screen can be captured with FRAPS in full screen mode.

In windowed mode you can use standard print screen

I use irfanview to do screen captures in ToF. It's freeware.

You can also simply click on your Print Screen button, then go into Paint, and do a ctrl-v.

I find screen shots are useful in playing the game, using 'Print Screen' with 'MS Paint' or 'FRAPS' (a free download). You play a country turn (e.g. Britain) and send out air recce missions, reveal some of the enemy positions, but when you come to an allied country turn (e.g. US) FOW is back and you are back to square one.

I keep a file of screens from the important fronts to refer to, each turn, so I don't have to waste resources doing recce again. [:)]

Thanks so much for the windowed mode suggestion. I was able to change to windowed mode, which I never used before, and was able to easily do the print screen capture to save a picture in Paint that I sent to my friend. I never would use that mode to play the game in as the window is small on my 27" screen. But it does give me a way to do print screens without wasting hard drive space on some other program.

One thing I noticed in the Windowed mode was that I saw the opening video for the first time. I couldn't get it working in full screen mode after downloading DivX, then just uninstalled DivX.

Best of all I got curious about the resolutions after changing back to full screen mode and discovered the best resolution of 1920-1200 gives me a full screen of game. At the default 1024-768 mode I had the old 4x3 aspect ratio, in 1920-1200 I get 16x9 aspect ratio. Even if a few screens look a little stretched the map looks great and now fills my 27"iMac screen. I'd think that the default screen resolution should be set higher than 1024-768, that's so EGA time.
