Would it be possible to add into your patch a way for people that run server as an option to disable the print screen button. I have noticed that during dogfights that people are using it way to much.

On that note, even if they did allow you to disable it, you could get a 3rd party screen capture util that would do the same thing independed of the game.

All in all it would result in a user having a very bag ping, which, if the host was smart he could tweat the ping limits to kick those people using 3rd party screen captures.

But there is no way the in-game screen capture would cause it becuase it is allready limited to how many screen captures you can take per min.

Yep, online it's already limited to once every ten seconds. Even if it was being abused a server side option would be useless as all one would have to do is run FRAPs or some other screencap program and do the same thing.

But yeah, amazing how this myth keeps living...
