Capturing Battlefield Bad Company 2 Screen Shots

Finally figured out a way to capture BFBC2 screenshots.

As I identified in the "Battlefield Bad Company 2 Deficiencies" thread, the BFBC2 developer didn't provide a hotkey for capturing the screen in the game. So it is a welcome relief to be able to do it without install third-party software that could cause problems with PunkBuster.

To capture BFBC2 screen shots, you have to run BFBC2 in a window. You can do that by reducing the screen resolutions to values smaller than your physical monitor's resolution. After doing that, BFBC2 will continue to run full-screen. Press Alt-Enter (while it is running) to change it to run in a window.

Once it is running in a window, you can press the "Print Screen" key to copy the entire screen into memory. Use your favorite graphics editing software (Paint, Gimp, etc.) to paste screen shot into and save it. You can use Alt-Tab to switch between BFBC2 and other software running on your computer.
