Truevision Graphics Adapter.

Post by KiwiWarlord » Mon Feb 19, 2018 7:04 am

Hi On my winXP PC screen saves ( F2 button ) are TGA files, on our win10 PC the screen saves are jpeg.
How do I change the TGA files to jpeg please ?
Thanks

Been playing around and after a stuff-up where I could not open the TGA files at all, can now open the screens with Nero photosnap.

No problems on the win10 machine, it is the winXP machine that the screens are TGA files for some reason.

you can add a command line to the game for it to always make a given format, so same as the default in windows 10 does, but tbh i'm not 100% sure windows xp supports it, so maybe wait until the developer replies to make sure, as the engine is the same one, but don't want to tell you something that may or may not work with win xp either

If you add the line

ScreenShotOutput 1

to

/Config/System.txt

F2 will save .JPGs instead of TGAs
