does anyone know of a way to get a screenshot before the window for a program comes up? what i'm wanting is to take a screenshot, save it as a .BMP, and use it as a background in a program using allegro. it's done in some screensavers (the funky lens effects that bounce on the screen.. that one with the dog, ripping things up). anyone have any ideas? i don't know if it's even possible.. thought i'd give it a shot though.
windows XP home
MSVC++ 6.0 with allegro.
