Taking screen shots in game?
« on: September 04, 2008, 10:07:00 am »
I was playing Spore on a mac and found it very hard to take screen shots. I had to use a 3rd party program to do it.

How do you take screen shots on a Mac in spore? Or is there some in game way to do it.

(I normally use a PC but since I live in the US I don't have spore yet. :( However, I do know people that have it, but it's not on PC!)

If you run it in windowed mode, you can get a widget called Screenshot Plus. As for fullscreen, there's a keyboard shortcut I think, but I don't know it.

Page 4 of the manual says hit the 'C' key. I don't have the game yet so I cannot test.

You can download it from EADM, allegedly.  Someone (was it you legodragon?) got it through EADM by clicking on the picture for Spore (up came a button for download manual, or something).  I still haven't gotten it, yet, but I'm still trying to figure out how he did it.

Here is where you get the manual if you have EADM. -Lego

Uh, trying out streaming. Had to kill my resolution to get it at a decent frame rate though. http://www.ustream.tv/channel/zam%27s-spore-play
