Gidday, just recently, the last two days when playing IWD- TOTL I noticed
the game doing some pausing/stuttering and today when I left it on pause I
was told my drive on which IWD is installed is out of memory. I was sure
there was at least 1GB of memory left but when I checked was only less tham
100KB.

it seems the culprit is the ScrnShot folder within IWD - it contains 1.85GB
of screenshots that all seem to have been taken in the last two days and
alot of them look like multiple shots of the same screen.

i tried deleting the ScrnShot folder, but when I restarted IWD it just
starting taking screenshots again and the folder is back. May need to
reinstall?

Has anybody else come across this - is it a bug (sure isn't normal)? What is
the key to take screenshots??

any help would be appreciated
cheers

Check your game settings.
Most likely you've mapped the screenshot key to something you press quite
often.

Gidday,

as I understand you use the print screen to take shots and i don't think the
screenshot key is able to be changed

cheers

Your keyboard may be stuffed, then. Get a new one from somewhere, and see
if that fixes the problem.
