Eagle of Fire From DOSBox 0.63 readme.txt:
Quote:
================
5. Special Keys:
================

ALT-ENTER* * Go full screen and back.
CTRL-F1* * * Start the keymapper.
CTRL-F4* * * Swap mounted disk-image. Update directory cache for all drives!
CTRL-F5* * * Save a screenshot.(png)
CTRL-F6* * * Start/Stop recording sound output to a wave file.
CTRL-ALT-F7* Start/Stop recording of OPL commands.
CTRL-ALT-F8* Start/Stop the recording of raw MIDI commands.
CTRL-F7* * * Decrease frameskip.
CTRL-F8* * * Increase frameskip.
CTRL-F9* * * Kill dosbox.
CTRL-F10* * * Capture/Release the mouse.
CTRL-F11* * * Slow down emulation (Decrease DOSBox Cycles).
CTRL-F12* * * Speed up emulation (Increase DOSBox Cycles).

These are the default keybindings. They can be changed in the keymapper.

Saved/recorded files can be found in current_directory/capture
(can be changed in the configfile).
The directory has to exist prior to starting DOSBox else nothing
gets saved/recorded !


NOTE: Once you increase your DOSBox cycles beyond your computer's maximum
capacity, it will produce the same effect as slowing down the emulation.
This maximum will vary from computer to computer, there is no standard.

Well, in DosBox, SHIFT + F5 gets a screenshot right away. Screen Thief 2.01 worked well in true DOS machine.
SHFT+F5, or CTRL+F5? Eagle-of-Fire mentions the latter, above. I'll give the other a try, as well.

In any case, the image looks fine when its resized to 640 x 480, so I'll probably just resize 'em to 320 x 200 using IrfanView, and send 'em in.

2.01 was enough for me to take these screenshots. If you know a link to a newer version, I'd like to know - I can sure find a use for it.
Yes. My ignorance. That was the only version I knew of.

All I did was google "screen thief." That provides more than a dozen links to shareware sites with the program.

It doesn't matter which version it is, though, just that it works.

But it does matter, if your version had features that were eliminated in later ones. This happens; for example, I can't use Hypersnap to capture DOS programs, so older versions did. And if your ST 2.01 version was freeware, the current version isn't. It's only a 30 day demo.

EDIT: Just checked the history file in your version of Screen Thief. It's 7 years old. But, it's also freeware, which is good. So I'll give it a try, and see how it gets along with XP. Thanks for recommending it.

EDIT-TO-EDIT: It doesn't apparently run under XP. I've tried increasing its memory and using compatibility settings, but nothing works. Also tried running it under DOSbox before loading the game, but that crashes.

The zipfile of Screen Thief you link to is 2.01. The current version is 3.6. Is there a reason you reccommend an earlier version of the title?

to check out whether the pics are squashed you simply have to look at
the file information by right-clicking on them. if the size is 320x200,
they're just fine!
...So 640 x 200 would not be correct, then? Because that's what DOSbox is taking. I don't fault the program. KOEI's PC-based products used an odd resolution. And if this doesn't cause problems, I can always send the screens in as-is.

Otherwise, I should search for another screen capture program.
