How to take a Screenshot

What is a ScreenShot?

A screenshot captures what you are viewing on your computer at the exact moment, that the screenshot is taken. Providing a ScreenShot/Picture when reporting a bug or a submitting a ticket for technical support, will help the Support Department in many instances to locate the issue.

See below how to make a ScreenShot/Picture, and attach it to your ticket submission.

Method 1

When in the action game press F9 – this will save a screenshot in .tga format on your disk. The screenshot will be saved in the folder %temp%\HNG\live\Screenshots. If you have moved the game’s files using H&G Sync the screenshot will be saved in the screenshots subfolder there. Even though the support system cannot display .tga files you can still attach them to a ticket, see step 11 below for how to do just that.

Method 2

Step 1: Press the Print Screen button located on your keyboard, to capture what it is you want to show us. This will save the ScreenShot/Picture into your clipboard.
