Hey everyone,

I'm having some problems with Unreal Tournament. The game itself runs smooth, but it seems that the screenshots i'm taking are getting distorted and very strange-looking.

I'm not having any kind of problems with lockups etc.. just this screenshot problem. I get the screenshot by pressing F9.



System specs:
P3-450MHz
128Mb RAM
Voodoo5 5500
Latest drivers & latest UT patch.

I would really appreciate some help..

With the Voodoo are you using Glide?

Are you using 16 bit or 32 bit color? Is it the same as your windows setting?

Have you tried 32 bit? You should be able to with a 5500.

Are you using dx8?

Try setting your desktop to 16 bit and see if that helps.

I thought with the voodoo 5500 you could use 32 bit under glide.

I'll try that.. thanks.

V5 support 32bit colors in D3D or OpenGL. Glide is a 16bit API.
