I have a quick question. Do screenshots work on anyones computer? If so, how? I have a Win98, does XP work? Or 95 or something? Thanks...
By the way, i like the site. If anyone needs help with 4-6, ask away, i have finished all of them in level hard, (not to show off) And i have finished ck 1-3 except the extra games.

If you're using Dosbox, I believe it had something built in for screen capture, I'm not sure about using just Windows though,

What is Dosbox? Sorry if that sounds pathetic....
I do have an old working DOS computer though, would that help?
I also tried using a camera and it ended up looking kind of weird and blurry. Scratch that idea...
Thanks for the help though.

DOSBox is a DOS emulation utility for Windows, obviously, it's not necesarry for Keen, but seeing as it can take DOS screenshots, it could be useful
Depending on how old your computer is, it might run slowly... seeing as it's running a whole version of DOS... but if you only need it for taking screenshots...
Alternatively, there are utilities for DOS which take screenshots which you could put on your DOS computer,
(Sorry if I don't get to your replies quickly, I don't stay on this forum much due to the lack of real posts,)

DOSBox download :

A Google search should get you a Freeware screen capture utility pretty fast,

You could try downloading Screen Thief for DOS. It allows you to assign a key combination to capture the screenshot to a file while you're running a game.
