I use FRAPS available here:

Or you can just press Prt Scr to save the image in your main Il2FB folder.

Hope it helps.

Press "PrintScreen". Works best when you pause the game as it slows things right down. The sceenshot will appear in your main IL-2 folder as a TGF?TGA?(can't remember exactly) file. If posting them here, change the format to a Jpeg as it isn't so big.

Yes, I did that. I paused the game, pressed the print screen. I looked for the folder, found nothing. I looked for a TGF file. didnt see any.
I will try again.

It's a TGA file. TGA was used in many games due to it's great support for transparency and layers, like PSD (photoshop file). I don't know why so many of the games take screenshots in TGA format.. it's rediculous.

Use photoshop to convert it, or Paint shop Pro.
