I assume that you play on PC - windows.

On the top right corner of your game is a wheel. Click it and you can set the game options. Display is either full screen or window mode. Choose window if you can and then the screenshots should work.

Some people have problems to get the window display - trying to change screen settings worked for a few but not for me.

If you can't dispay MC as a window then your print button won't work. Just black!

There are various apps - free and commercial for taking screenshots but the majority won't work either.

The one that does work is FRAPS.

http://www.fraps.com/download.php

It is only partly free. The unregistered version will allow you to take full screenshots as bmp. Sufficient for me as I only use it for MC.

First of all, I see no reason to purchase some PC app for snipping pictures.   As has been stated, the screen print will only work if you can put MC in less than full screen mode. Many laptops do not allow that setting to be changed. .......That said.....just use the camera on your cell phone to snap a picture of what you want.

Second.....I have a baby game and can provide some of the pictures you are wanting, but I have not opened Three Prisoners/Three Dragons yet, nor has that game opened the Battle Pit/Castle Armory.

The Road Sign (above) becomes Gnome Road Sign during Level 31

The Prison Cell becomes Birdcage during Level 29

Dead Ambassador becomes Door Cache during Level 27

Fairy Sculpture becomes Elfish-Bas Relief during Level 27

Winter Garden becomes Summer Garden during Level 29

I forgot to get the picture of the Mirrors (it becomes Mirror Nave during Level 28) ..... and, of course, I cannot get the Battle Pit and Three Prisoners because I don't have them open on any current game.

The free version of FRAPS that Nona suggested will work with MC. I've used it some since she recommended it to me. And as far as using your phone ... I don't use my phone for that sort of thing.  I know it's there, but I just don't do it.

I've been grabbing the game's window using the PRTSCR button and cropping it using a nifty little program called paint.net

I've only been interested in capturing the HOS's and the items. So far I have everything you can unlock in order up to level 55 saved (I also have a google doc with crafting item recipes along with their icon/artwork. I might post it when I'm closer to being caught up).

JaineJ, Here is the Three Prisoners, then the Three Dragons:


  

I play the game on PC in windowed mode.  I have the Clipping Tool on the Task Bar and when I come upon a pic I want, I simply click on the Clipping Tool (which is set to a Rectangular Snip), then on New, then drag the box around the pick I want.  I paste it in a Word document where I can manipulate the brightness, size, etc.  Hope this helps.
