Just curious, where do the screenshots get saved when you take them? Is there a special folder predesignated or is it one you set up yourself?

They should be in the root folder, with .tga extensions

I downloaded a program called fineview to see the screenshots- otherwise I couldn't get Windows to display them. I forget the URL, but it's probably something like "fineview.com", I'm sure a Google search would get you headed in the right direction

They get saved as .tga in your main game folder, as grab0001, grab0002 and so on. If you don't at least copy them, the next session you take a screenie, it will overwrite your old grab0001, at least it used to.

I use IL2Manager to automatically convert my screens into .jpg and give each a unique file name. Saves a lot of time and hassle for me at least.

Irfanview is also a great program for viewing many different formats, and converting singly and in batches.

don't forget to get the xtentions too !

screenshots are numbered from 000 ... called grab000.tga and on on EVERY TIME you start the game - they are overwritten = erased every time ! save 'em ! so seesion 1 you take 20 screen shots lol session 2 you take 10 ... you have 10 plus last ten from previous version then (1-10 of first seesion are overwritten = lost!)...

making a nettrack is better! ALLWAYS
define key for quick-record in "controls" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
press that as on/off video http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif ALL VIEWS ALL SKINS ONLINE TOO ! AND version independant!

The nettrack has all integral - you can take screenshots then (time and again playing that track) you can make a quickrecord (snipet) of the track too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif All views work on playback http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Time decrease accel works etc....

making screenshots online will lag the game (for others too!) too - so thats prob why you can only take 1 screenshot per 10 seconds now...
