Screen Thief is indeed a useful program for when you can't use PrintScreen. Of course, it should be used only when DOSBox doesn't work since thats usually easier Happy You can DL it from:

http://www.dosgames.com/files/st.zip

Just run it from a command prompt, then press the left arrow key twice to get back to the DOS prompt. (The command prompt may run slower after that ... like, laggy. No worries.) Then run your game like normal (from the same command window of course), and press Alt-Ctrl-T to capture screens. The screens are saved as GIFs in whatever directory you're in.
