When describing the Journal, the manual states "you can extract the data from your Journal and print it". Unfortunatelly, it doesn't say how... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

Does anyone know how to print the Journal, or is this yet another bug that will be corrected in the next version (of the manual)? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

because that nice little feature got cut at the last moment

*mutter*

Wish a nice user would write an extractor for this :P

Supposedly Ubi will, eventually..

I looked in the file system and found that the journal entries are stored as standard .JPG files. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

That solves the problem for me, since there are a lot of programs avaiable for printing jpeg files. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Of course it would be easier to have some Ctrl-P functionality in Myst, but Alt-tab to an Explorer window to initiate the printout isn't that bad.

I read that there is some encryption present in the savegames, but I'm not sure. Well, some specs are in the COBBS wiki. Someone with some patience and time can write an extractor. But I will love if that feature was part from the game, and not an external program.

Where in the Myst file directories are the saved games (more specifically, the journal .jpg's) stored?

The Journal .jpg files are stored in "My Documents\myst4-revelation savegames\journal".
The files are present here only when a game is loaded. If Myst is not started, the directory is empty.
