Well, yes, but you won't be able to see the screenshot unless you convert the file using FineView or a similar program

I use PaintShopPro.

Good for making skins as well.

PrintScrn key saves screenshots in your game folder with filenames in the format:

grab0000.tga
grab0001.tga
grab0002.tga
etc..

If you don't have software that will view .tga files there are several free utilities including Irfanview (http://www.irfanview.com/) that can be downloaded.

Any screenshots that you wish to keep should be moved or renamed before restarting the game, as the game restarts the filenames at grab0000.tga each time you exit and restart.

I got the FRAPS program. It shows the frame rate and allows u to take a screenshot. Simply press the desired key and then go into the Fraps program file. Select the shot u want and viola!! Easy as pie
