I discovered now how to take screenshots in Legacy. If you are in FreeCam Mode and are playing with a controller (I use the Logitech Precision USB Gamepad) you can take a screenshot and it will be saved in the Star Trek Legacy directory (C:\Program Files\Bethesda Softworks\Star Trek Legacy). On my gamepad it is the key "1", it might be another on your gamepad. I do not know whether this works with other gamepads/joysticks, too, because I have just one. *Sorry for the doublepost if someone else posted this before*

Yeah, that's an option, but not everyone actually has it or has the money to buy it. I personally prefer to use the "Print Screen" button to take screenshots, that goes for any game.

I can offer you guys another fine screencapture software, namely the SnagIt 7 or the latest versions.Have many options, and prefixed ways to take shoots from games, it puts them into a folder you typed in. It has a 30days trial period, but well, there're solutions for this problem:D

I don't know why people get so hyped up about screenshot software. Using the old "Print Screen" button is the way I'll always do it. :p

Yepp I used to do this way but I couldn't take more than 1 shot at the same time, I had to paste it into the Paint:), and if I forgot it, I lost the previous pic as I hit the button agian...How can you take more shots in row without paste the 1st one into "Paint like" softwares?:eek: :D

FRAPS is partially free, you can take screenshots and video with the unregistered version however the options on file format and video length are limited.

Same here, I only use FRAPS for video capture. :)

Exactly. It's very limited unless you buy it.
