Once you have a picture taken, open up paint and "paste" it there.

I've already told another person today in a different thread, but you find the screenshots in "C:\Documents and Settings\User_Name\Application Data\Petroglyph\Empire At War - Forces of Corruption\ScreenShots" however it may be in a different drive for you.

Thats the kind of info that we need in the first post lol. Any new files are saved to the virtualstore folder on your harddrive. Its hidden so go to your EAW directory and you should see "Compatibility Files" with like a folder file type icon next to it close to the top, click it and there you go. While still in virtualstore move everything for EAW to where it should be in the normal directory. Remember when your moving the files don't override any newer files(duh) and delete the whole eaw folder(the virtual store one) so nothing gets saved to there again and repeat for all games. Install to the /games folder(what did you think it was for? lol) so you don't have to do any of that again.

All right here is wat i found there is a virtualstore folder in the directory-

C:\Users\Garcia\AppData\Local

and there are 3 documents in there, which are EAW, EAW:FOC, and BFII. I put the virtualstore folder in the Lucasarts directory-

C:\Program Files\LucasArts

now youre saying if i delete the one from the first directory it will save the files in the second directory and i didnt find any files there also.

Thats not what I said. virtualstore/program files/lucasarts/eaw:foc Thats what im talking about.

The one in the virtual store is the one you delete yes.

and i didnt find any files there also.

So the eaw:foc folder in the virtual store is empty? Im not believing that or there wouldn't be a folder for it under the virtual store.
