Angry Stuipid PCX

Is there a way to stop your game from saving your screenshots in PCX format???? the reason i hate it is because it cannot be opened with a regular program (i do have a program that does open it but it's still a pain) and it takes up a whopping 2.0MB on average per screenshot instead of like 600KB like JPEG and i'm tired of changing the format.

P.S. i feel the same way about cheaters - cheating may seem like fun at first then it just plain blows. I would always be so much more proud of my stats doing it for real. If your cheating why the hell bother???

will at first novalogic had it set to save to pcx for a reason none could edit it. but later on some programs software MFG came out and let them be edited so it was drop and later on in JOTR it was change over to png for better and eassyer to upload. the tech team at novaworld maybe able to tell how to change it to save jpg format

there is a eassyer way to make it into JPG/JPEG is press Print scrn key it will copy the image on your screen and then open up some image software past image into it. then save it. instead of change it over there is a drawback only can do one at a time.

Ok, I don't mean to be a smart mouth either but I do not need any programs
to open my saved images. Every PC I know of comes custom with Paint and or
some sort of picture viewer program which will work as well. If you know not to
screw around and delete your important files, you can save your images by
simply doing this and it saves on my pc as a jpeg. No problem. I just find this
much easier the way I access my saved images. This will definitely work for WIN XP.

I used DFX for example because it's the only one I don't have a program designed
for opening pics with and I know I don't need one. It works for me as I do not want
any more programs on my PC than I believe I need.

#1) Go to My Computer then open this path : C/program files/novalogic/DFX
(You can also use the path above to directly upload images to photobucket with
out doing any of the rest. Find the image you want, upload it, then you're done.
You only need to copy paste the path given by your photo/image host which links
to the pic of your choice.)

#2) Then you double click to open your images (The ones you are looking for
all have a given number such as SS00001 and are followed by: 800X600 JPEG
Image ) and POOF! They open with Windows Image and Fax Viewer.

#3) Then you can click on the little "disk icon" to save as, anywhere you want.
You can also move your images and it won't hurt a thing. Why? Because these
files were not created by the program installer. (Leave the one tittled "keychart"
there. It comes with the game.
)

OR optional

#4) Use the little Icon next to the "disk icon" to open your file. This will open
paint, then save as from there. They still save as a JPEG for me on WIN XP.
(This is where pics can be edited like Nev was saying. I dont' reccommend doing
that as it is dishonest of course.)

From here you can use an online picture hosting website like photobucket to post
your pics. You can use a link or the actual image in most cases.

Try this one for another example. Here's a link to a Screen shot I saved:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...R/cae4d803.jpg

(For the "record" I am using the name Mistletoe-SGF- in regards to holiday season.)

If you would like help doing it this way I will gladly help. IM me: jokexher@hotmail.com

Advise:
This is just another way to save and host your images. I am "mostly not" a PC expert.
By far there are many here who are much better than I am, but I know enough about it
to do the things I like to do. And maybe a little extra...

If you do not know what you are doing then maybe you need a program to
assist you. In that case use the good advise in the threads above. I am just
providing an option.

...so, for Joint Operations its "F11" to take a screen shot which it dumps in your JO folder.
Is there any way to make it a bit more higher quality hidden somewhere in the game config options?

its based on the resolution you set in game for your monitor.



just get any pic editor like the irfanview i linked above and youcan change resolution after you make the screen.
