    Screen Capture

    So, any one have a screen capture program? I've been playing with one but the only thing it displays is a black rectangle. Just really starting to ........ me off, if anyone has one please post, all help will be greatly appreciated.

    are you talking about an OpenGL or DirectX window? I noticed that too. ::GetDC with a null parameter will give you the whole screen with a black rectangle on the opengl window. I think it's because those libraries bypass the GDI so you can't capture it without accessing the video card itself
