    I actually looked in the manual for this one! So I pressed the "prt scr" button and I also pressed "ctrl+prt scr" because I wasn't quite sure, but no screenshots to be found anywhere in my FFXI folder. Help?!

    Yes, you press Scroll Lock, which should then remove all game windows from your screen.

    Press Print Screen again and you will hear a clicking noise, which means your screenshot has been taken.

    Press Scroll Lock again to get your windows back.

    You can access your screenshots through the PlayOnline client, but it's pretty shite, to be honest. The screens are stroed in a directory on your computer, but I can't seem to recall what it's called right now. Will get back to you on that :D

    Do yourself a favour and get an external program to take your screenshots.

    The ingame one sucks horribly, not only is it half-res, no windows on screen ( so can't screenshot damage-shots ), branded with a copyright notice at the bottom right corner it is also, and this part I really truly godly LOATH - You have a restricted number of screenshots to take.

    That's right, you can't go around taking pics of just about anything without clearing out your folder from time to time. ( looks at the 5 directories with 800+ screenies each from daoc )... my... preciousssss...

    Just say NO to in-game methods of taking screenshots. Get an external program to do it for you. ( Fraps can do this easily if you already use it for rec'ing movies ).

    would be nice though not to have to pay for a program to take those pictures ;) (and iirc for fraps you do).

    Hmm, see what you mean, small and crappy :(

    Fraps doesn't work for me for some reason. I get an error when I try to load it. I did post about it on BW some time ago but no one came up with a solution, but I'm guessing it's just my computer is too damn old to handle it :(

    The screenshot also sits in your clipboard, so you can paste it to something like paint shop pro if you like.

    no I am refering to me, I havent paid for it and am a fan of taking pics. And would rather not pay 30 dollars for something that should have been in the game :p (and I dont think I will use fraps to record video's, unless the free version lets you SS just aswell?)

    unless you use the free version yes you do:p (and for making a video for daoc atleast the free version wasnt so good (atleast so I've heard)).

    Funny thing tho - they detect players on sound. So if you dont move ( :D ) they cant see you.
