all you need to do is press the F12 key.
this is the simplest thing to do.
press F12 once to start a capture
press F12 a 2nd time to end it.
[[ once you add 2 lines to the config.cfg file, at the bottom is fine. ]]
then, at your leisure, after the game is over, you can look at the screenshots, and convert them to jpg, save, archive, whatever.
this also allows you to play TM full screen.
2 changes to make to the
TreadMarks config.cfg file
# to enable in game screen captures
# by pressing the F12 key
# add to the bottom of the config.cfg file
# found in C:\Program Files\Tread Marks 1.5 folder
# or where ever you installed TM
# the following 3 lines
# Animation frame saving. (F12)
AnimDir = c:\TempShots\tank
AnimFPS = 15
# remember though, to press the F12 key twice!
# press F12 once, and you start a non stop series
# of in game screen captures.
# press F12 a second time to stop it.
# create a folder called TempShots on your C: drive
# TM will save screen captures as bmp files, so they
# are large. the saved bmp files will be numbered
# tank00001.bmp, tank00002.bmp, etc. etc.
# screen captures are good for bragging rights
# also notice this entry in the config.cfg file
LogFileActive = 1
LogFileName = "tank.log"
# by default, it is set to 1
# so a log file is created and grows and grows
# every time you play treadmarks
# to deactivate the log file
# set to 0
LogFileActive = 0
# or comment it out with a pound sign
# LogFileActive = 1
# LogFileName = "tank.log"
may peace doggedly
