Screenshot from fullscreen game possible!
 
Yes there is a built in option in Windows to enable screenshots from a directdraw game without horribly messed colors.

It is a simple registry option that needs to be enabled.

The patches are available here:

(they talk about another game in the readme, but this fix is universal and works for SPMBT too.)

So now you can take a screenshot from the game even if it is running in full screen with the print screen button. Enjoy. :)

Wargamers,

For those interested this registry hack is shown below so that you may know what key(s) is affected:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DirectDraw
E n a b l e P r i n t S c r e e n = d w o r d : 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1

I popped open the prntscr.reg and the above is all that is contained.

However, you may want to set a system restore point before launching this hack, as is typically done with a registry modification, or saving the registry prior to executing the hack.

I like to take a picture of the map as a way to help in planning a battle, so I think this will be a big benefit.

Thanks SP4Ever!
