Please dont move this or else no one will answer it inside the Total War thread!

In Medieval 2 TW when I take a screen shot during the game where does it go? I cant seem to find it anywhere!

Just hit the print screen button. Open paint. Hit EDIT at the top and hit PASTE. There is your screenshot.

Thats because Paint doesnt support the TGA format........

use photoshop or gimp

And actually name your thread something of value, no one has any idea of what this thread is about


If there is no image, Mikey broke something...

Uh...I'm pretty sure I named my thread something fairly straight forward here

Just hit the print screen button. Open paint. Hit EDIT at the top and hit PASTE. There is your screenshot.

I tried this, it works pretty well, you just need to minimize M2TW and then do it right away...thanks for the help

There are many TGA to JPG converters on the net if you dont like the TGA format
