 Can anyone tell me how to take screen shots while using FS-9.  For that matter maybe you can help with FSX too.   Thanks in advance.

Hello Jim and :welcomeani: to Mutley's Hangar.

 

For screenshots in FSX use the v key, just a quick press like you would on a camera. I cannot remember how in FS9. :fool:

I believe you need a screen shot utility, I dont think anything is built in unlike FSX, there used to be some apps on Avsim, not sure if they are still there though...

Don't know about FS9, never used it. But for FSX just hit the V key amd it takes a bmp and writes it to your \pictures\flight simulator x folder

All I do is press the "Print Screen" button, then pause the flight, press the windows button( between crtl and alt), that brings up your home pc screen,(NOTE in FSX you need to press ESC BEFORE the windows key otherwise you'll find that you cannot get back to your flight for some reason), find your paint app, (mine comes up on the side bar) when your paintscreen comes up, click on "paste from" and your shot should come up. if you wish to crop the pic etc you can do that now. Then press the close button and it will give you the option to ,save, cancel or delete. click save and choose a name, also make sure you save as a JPEG. then just send it to your pics folder etc. It sounds complicated but I found that it works and only takes a couple of minutes.

Once your pic is safe just click on the FS button and resume your flight.

There may be a quicker way of doing it, in which case someone please tell me! :)

Hi Jim I use Fraps for taking screen shots in fs9  and  it works fine for me, you can also have it set to show your frame rates too while flying. You can download this for free.it works with XP Vista and W7
