Add the following lines to your config.cfg...

AnimDir = c:\TempShots\tank
AnimFPS = 30


You can change the AnimDir to whatever you want. That setting will create a directory called C:\TempShots\ and name all the screenshots Tank###.bmp, at 30 screenshots per second. You can lower the AnimFPS value if you just want to take individual screens, or move it up to 30 or higher if you're interested in making animated .gif files or anything like that. To start capturing, you need to press F12 (it may be control-F12 or alt-F12, I can't remember offhand... it's definitely F12-related, though). Press the same key(s) to stop the screen captures.

Keep in mind that TM only saves screens as .bmps, and at the current game resolution. So if you're running TM at 1024x768, those pictures are going to take up a lot of space very quickly.

If you have a photographic memory, you could describe the screen in detail.

Um... that would take a lot of photographic memory... maybe drawing a prietty picture of tanks blowing up and then using a scanner and going from there? Just a thought...

Photographic memory would mean you could remember everything, sarcasm aside.

Nice, I can use it like a camera now... yay! Oh, while I was fiddling around with config.cfg, I turned on the wireframe... it was fun, and kinda neat, although it was slow... odd... anyways, also, I never noticed that you could change it to Miles per hour... although you wont get as high of a number... I'll stick with KPM... yep. C ya around...
