    Hodrio nochmal.

    As I am playing full-screen, the creation of screen-shots from Foobillard is a little cumbersome. A hotkey should probably be provided by the game itself and a configuration-option to tell it where to store the image-file.

    LOOOWWwww priority, though. ;-)

  • I will do my best :-)

    But the screenshot itself will stay in the program-folder or home-folder. Why? There ist no special gui for foobillard++ and I don't want to code one……

  • @holger: The missing gui… I mean that underestimatee feature, that there just "is no gui" is highly appreciated. ;-)
    The home-folder will be fine, as it is already for other serious software-systems, like scorched3D, bzflag and such. This will bear no surprises…


  • In the upcoming release 3.42beta there is a hotkey #0 and a button on the playfield to make a screenshot in compressed png format on supported os and in bmp with windows. The screenshot is stored on linux in the home-directory and on ms-windows on the desktop. A directory foobillardplus-data is created and the screenshots are stored there. The filename is a random filename.

    In the svn-tree a working binary can be build with revision 98.
