Hi guys,

Anyone out there know how to take screenshots in CFS II, 'cause it is either undocumented or missing as far as I can tell. In addition, a couple of small things that could be addressed in the planes available for download at Airbudah's site, the control surfaces don't move in any of the cockpit views, and the light doesn't work in the virtual or 3d cockpit. I also can't get the avenger to show up in flyable aircraft. Other than that they are awesome, particularly the Glamorous Glen III. Wish the hell I could take some screenshots of that one!

I don't know if I'm the only one, but I found that the Glamorous Glen caused a severe frame rate drop. Is this to be expected?

Yes, it is normal. Airbuddha did what he could to reduce the frame rate hit from his early aircraft. He could not, however, reduce the polygon count (the main culprit) due to the loss of the source files in a HD crash. If you haven't goten the CFS2 ready files yet, I suggest you get them, as the frame rates suffer less with them.

Thanks for replying so quickly! Could you tell me where I can get those files? The planes are superb, and I really want to start using them.

Press the "Print Screen" key on your keyboard, minimize CFS and go to your image editing program such as Windows Paint open a new file and paste into it (Ctrl + V)

Edit or save the image.
