Use CTRL-F11. This dumps a BMP file into your SH3 directory.

I'm using FRAPS to capture screenies (Num Lock key by default). They're stored as .bmp files in the main FRAPS folder.
Personally, I prefer the older 1.9 version of FRAPS. Just google it.

I use Fraps as well, but if you want a free scree capture program that is easy and takes quality shots then use this:


I have a regestered version of Fraps so I use it, but the above program works very well.

Hypersnap-DX pro is one I use. It can save to a directory and you can specify keys for which doesnt conflict with your games. Very powerful and can capture any game or program running.

All good suggestions though.

There is an excellent (free), user-friendly Screenshot manage available from : www.fsdesign-berlin (http://www.fsdesign-berlin).
This certainly works for the computer-illiterate (me) in flightsims, though I haven't yet tried it on SH3, as I'll be installing mine on Sunday. Those Berlin boys are highly recommended http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
