Ummmm this may sound stupid. LOL. But can anyone tell me how to take a screen shot? I found a VERY nice ETH Messerschmidt's reaver and want to do a screen shot of it. I dunno if it makes a diff, but I am using Win XP. Thanks.

If you run diablo 2 in a window, i.e. you changed the targeting path and added -w to the end of it (so that it said something like: "C:\Program Files\Diablo II\Diablo II.exe" -w), you can just drop your cursor into the window and hit alt+printscreen, then paste it into MS Paint.

Otherwise, if you play full screen you just go into the game and press the "print screen" key, and then alt-tab or quit and paste it into Paint.

Well I did what you said Hal. Nothing seems to happen. I press the print screen key, alt-tab out and theres nothing there but my desktop and my minimised game. Is there another key that can stop my print key from working if it's on? Thanks.

Hell:

after you al-tab, you have to open up the Microsoft Paint program, right click inside the window, and select paste. Hitting print screen just saves the image to the internal clip cache, you have to actually paste it into a viewer program to see it.

Royal:

I've noticed that problem too, i think it has something to do with the full screen res or something of that nature. An easier way to take care of it might be to make a copy of your shortcut to diablo 2, paste it, and then alter the target path by right clicking it and selecting properties, then adding a -w outside of the quotations as I mentioned above. Make sure there is a space between the last quotation and the -w.

When I press the Print Screen, d2 makes a .jpg file in the d2 folder.. So you dont need to go in paint.. :^

LOL, I had forgotten all about that! Yes indeed, baa's method is a lot easier. I had totally forgotten that LoD caches them itself...so used to UO and taking screenshots for the department, lol!

Well, that's good that that is settled. You can still give that thing I suggested (with the -w) try if you want to play LoD in a window; it tkes some getting used to, but it makes the graphics a good deal clearer, and you don't have to alt-tab anymore.
