Push the Print Screen button while in-game.

Here's the way I do it*:

1) Open Windows Paint

2) Start BF1942, play as normal

3) When you want to take a shot, press Print Screen

4) Hold Alt and press Tab, and it should switch to Windows Paint

5) Hold Ctrl and press V, then save

Wa-la!

*Note that I'm not sure if "Alt-Tab" works on other OS's besides Windows XP.

Or you could use a screen cap program like FRAPS that will save your pics in .jpg form, however I have used both the PrtScr method and FRAPS and they both work, so take your choice.

have fun

all your screenshot will go in the screenshots folder in your Battlefield 1942 directory.......you can use a program called InfranView to open them, or if u have Adobe Photoshop.....or MS Paint.....

I usa InfranView.....it's quickier......:rock: :D

I had the same problem with the printscreen button, you should just change the button to alt, it makes it so easy to take good screenshots because it is easy to get to the alt button. :lol: :lol: :lol:

in the battlefield 1942 folder there is a folder where all your screenshots go after you take them.
