One funny problem...

Post Mar 1st '14, 17:40

Hi,
Seems like I have figured out a lot of prickly issues as I've muddled my way through map making, texturing, and terminals. I want to thank Dan for helping with some of that. :-)

One funny problem…which is not a huge deal, but I can't seem to figure out:

How do you get screen captures of your maps? I'd like to use a screen cap of part of my map so that I can add them as terminal pics with highlighted areas…much the same way many Marathon games do.

But I can't seem to use any of my screen capture tools (like SnapzPro) to capture a map I display from within Marathon (while playing the game in Visual Mode or Regular game play.

Any idea how I can see these images?

Thanks!

Not sure, but is this what you're looking for?

As Dan said, F9 works in game.

I generally just use the built in screen capture functions on your system though. CMD+Shift+3 works if you're playing in full screen on a Mac, and I'd imagine print screen on any Windows operating system would work as well.

I'm sure you have a lot of 1x1 screenshots of the center of your crosshair. ;)

You want Command+shift+3, for a screenshot of the whole screen. "+4" lets you select part of the screen.

You may need to move your mouse after pressing the keys. But maybe not.
