you go to your profile, look which key is set to take screenshot, and either use it or change it to whatever you want

omfgwtf, that was hard... you must have been looking everywhere
as much as the trackmanias may rule, carmageddon 1 & 2 are still the best games ever :D

That's the first place I looked, I've been through every folder where I installed the game, I even tried looking in "My Documents". Nothing!

I am annoyed by the blatant Adware in the TMN launcher (I own TMU and don't need a web page reminding me of its existance)

easiest way is to press default button F10
It saves a bmp file in the TMN root folder

well I've hit the button several times during a brief drive around and I still can't find the screenshots, the "do screenshot" button is f10 but it doesn't look like it's actually creating the screenshots :( since as I mentioned previously I've searched everywhere in the Nations folder including all the sub-folders.

It doesn't screenshot from the Paint Editor of the menus, and the track editor, for some reason.

It screenshots when you're actually driving though. Load A-0 in Solo, press f10, the game'll freeze a little (that's usually a good hint)

But ok, I admit, that IS indeed a extremely weird name for a screenshot. :roll:

I'll be an idiot and say that the xx is to be substituted for a two-digit value (starting at 01).
