Hi hazarta,

Are you using FRAPS or some other program? Or just pressing "Print Screen" on your keyboard?

Cheers,

If printscreen doesn't work for you (keep in mind "Alt + PrintScreen" captures just the open window) then there's a few options.

You can use FRAPS which does captures, videos, and benchmarking.
You can use Xfire which is a social gaming platform, but does streaming video, screen captures and uploads them to xfire.com if you wish.
Or you can use one of a million alternatives, one being Jing

Well,thx.I'm not sure if I understood you.I'll try it now.
