Press Alt + Print Screen|SysRq to take the screenshot.
Paste it into Paint.
Use Irfanview to convert to a .jpg.
Host it on a site like ImageVenue.

Hope this helps.

Greetings,
To get a screen shot and post it here:

1) Choose where your shot is taking place then press "printscreensysrq"

2) Press alt + tab and go out the game and open up microsoft paint.

3) Press ctrl + v and your image should show up on the screen.

4) Choose to save the image as "nameofscreenshot.JPEG" and save it as JPEG format *jpeg *jpg *blah *blah *blah"

5) Upload your image to a hoster like Imageshack.

6) Get the link code for forums and post it here like so:

[url=h_t_t_p://www.nameofimageandhosteretcetc.com]My screenshot[/url]

or if you want it to display as an image directly

[img][url] h_t_t_p://www.nameofimageandhosteretcetc.com [/img][/url]

or if you want the image to be shown on the forums in a smaller size, and it can then be clicked on to make it fill the screen on a new window, do the following:

[url=h_t_t_p://www.nameofimageandhosteretcetc.com][img][url]h_t_t_p://www.nameofimageandhosteretcetc.com[/img][/url]

NOTE: If your image is bigger than the 80 Kilobyte limit, it will be displayed as something like:

[JPEG numberofkilobytes]

As a link. That only happens if it is in either the second or third options shown above.

And remove the underscores(_) from between the http:// bit as that was only to stop it from displaying as an actual URL on this message.

If you follow what I told you to do in paint you will not need to use Irfanview.

As for the controls, play the prologue (son of mars) campaign.
You need to master them yourself. Hotkeys are on the back of your game booklet.

Will paint save as anything other than a bitmap?

DISCLAIMER: My crappy work computer is still running Win98, so I can't be held responsible for new versions(?) of Paint.

Paint will save things automatically as a bitmap image. Just change what it saves it as and put the correct file extension down.

Again, this is on the crappy Win98 PC...

Just tried this. In Paint, there's no .jpg extension in the drop-down box. If, however, you go ahead and save it as test.jpg the file name is changed to a .jpg extension, but the image is still a bitmap (according to the file's properties in Imaging), and as .jpg's are vector-based...

See where I'm going with this? Merely changing the extension doesn't change the file type, so the "test.jpg" is still a huge file.

You can still save jpegs and gifs with Win 98, at least I could when we had Windows 98. Gif files are the next best after jpeg's

Nope...don't have one of those in 98. I'm sure my XP box at home does. But being one who isn't shy about admitting defeat...

In either case/OS, Alexander should know how to grab screens, now.

You know what, come to think of it, if even Firefox isn't past 'Legionary', then I don't even care to know because it just ain't right...

they don't promote somebody because he's a good player, they promote you if you can (and will) improve the site. Promoting Firefox won't make a difference.
