I have screenshots working but it does one goofy thing. Everytime I start the game it starts numbering them over. It overwrites the first one and then the second etc. Is this normal? Do I need to rename them or move them when I restart? Jeff

Gringo proved me wrong on this one a while ago. Yes they do start over. I would still swear that I had sessions where they just filled in the empty gaps but ever since gringo and I talked about it, I've found that the numbers do start over... I have a theory that the jpegs start over but the tga's do not but that has yet to be proven. ;)

Yes, I've noticed that too. Usually, I move my screenshots in an other folder to avoid this problem. I take my screenshots in jpeg. So I don't know about tga. Gonna test it.

Yes the tga's are being overwritten too, i take all screenshots in tga so I can always edit them or make them jpeg if I want.

actually they start at 0000. I strongly recomend going into the screenshot directory and rename the ones you want to keep (the others will be purged when overwritten) after you've shot them.

Bummer.... It's kind of a waste of those name space then... When will you get more than 9999 screen shots in a single session???? Hmmm sounds like a reason to gold plate a feature! j/k maybe later....

well I believe that you can set up a feature in game that will snap shots continuously (sort of a cheep movie). hmm maybe I could write a script that will make the screenshots from a demo for easyer movie making..... *adds to list of stuff to tinker with*
