Feigning normality since 1973


Filed in: Computers, Unreal Tournament.

Shortly after making my previous post I remembered that someone had mentioned that using the Print Screen button still worked. Since it's a huge hassle to switch from UT2004 to a graphics program every time you want to take a screen shot, I wrote a quick program to poll the clipboard every few seconds and, if it happens to contain a bitmap, write it to a file.

I had a quick check around the internet, but I couldn't find any other freeware programs which would do the same thing, so I figured I'd put it on here in case it helps anyone else who's facing the same problem.

A whole month, and no one bothered to point out I had the link to the program wrong?! Sheesh, what do I pay you people for? :)

The UT2004 black screenshot problem doesn't exist any more (at least for me - GF 8600GTS) with the newest Forceware 169.21 - released on 19th Decembre. greetz sorrx
