Something weird is going on...I can''t take any screenshots of my DirectX 7 game...the gameplay, that is. I can take perfect screenshots of my main menu, though. What could be the problem? I am using the print screen key (enabled with directx.cpl). This is also the case for PSP. Any thoughts? I have been racking my brain forever on this... Thanks, Martin

There is a tutorial on taking screen shots from directdraw surfaces at www.mr-gamemaker.com

Maybe of some use

yeah, you can use windows GDI to save a bitmap from the GetDC of your surface, but are you using DirectInput for the gameplay and not the menu? if you are acquiring the keyboard, maybe that disables the PrintScreen feature?

Thanks, Gazza, I''ll take a look at that tutorial.

Crazy166: I''m using DirectInput for both the menu and the game.
