hi i was wondering if anyone knew how to remove the menus ect for screen shots thanks Foddaz:)

There are a few aspects to this, but this link should help you do it all:
There used to be a page for it on DoWfiles but it seems to have gone missing during the server problems.
screenmode = 0 fogofwar = 0 unitstats = 0 forcesynckills = 0
bind( "shift+tab", "toggle_user_interface() ")
bind( "shift+F1", "toggle_stat_UI() ")
if screenmode == 0 then
print("Hiding user interface") message_hide() taskbar_hide() screenmode = 1 else print("Showing user interface") taskbar_show() screenmode = 0 end
print("Toggle unit/building stat bars") ingame_stats_toggle()
print("Toggle unit/building selection boxes") ingame_select_ui_toggle()
print("***Obsolete*** Toggle stat bars on mouse over units/buildings") ingame_stats_mouseover_toggle() end
then open up notepad. Paste the above into notepad and save as a .txt file. place the .txt file into your DoW directory and rename it autoexec.lua. You need to have file extensions turned on to do this. Then in game you hit "shift + Tab" to disable the GUI. If you run the game in -dev mode then you can also hit "shift + F1" and disable the unit selection circles, loading bars, and transport bars. This won't hurt your ability to play online (-dev mode can be run for replays and play in regular mode.)
Happy screen hunting.
Thanks for the help I can get some good screenshots now wooo!:):lol:
