Screenshot Taking Program

Post by RPG » Sat Feb 12, 2005 1:55 am

Whenever I take a screenshot with F5, I get a
screenshot file, bzfi0000.png. I'll take another one,
and it will save a bzfi0001.png. The trouble comes when
I close the program. When I restart BZFlag, and take
another screenshot, it will overwrite bzfi0000.png, and
go up from there. Simply it doesn't start saving
screenshots where it left off last time. Instead, it
starts at 0000.

It's only a problem of incrementing the screenshot number. I'm going to submit this one to Sourceforge to make everybody happy :D

it was never designed to save the last screenshot across sessions, it's doing what it's told to do. Clean out your screenshots between sessions.

Once the game closes, all memory is gone, so it can't know what the last one was last time you ran, unless we save it somewhere. Probably can save it in the config. It's not a bug, your asking for a new feature ( a usefull one ) :)

imho it should have the date and time as part of the filename. maybe I'll even get around to that sometime.
