New, better, faster solution for taking screenshots!

This news mainly applies to The Peasants Rebellion as taking screenshots is impossible without using an external tool. So what is the news, YOU CAN NOW FINALLY TAKE SCREENSHOTS USING PRINTSCREEN WITHOUT MESSING UP THE PALETTE!!! How, you ask? A small modification into your system registry will allow this. As I'm aware that some people might not be able to do this, I've made a .reg file available from the downloads section (Screenshot Fix) which will automatically write the required strings into your system registry once you launch it. We must thank jbsnorro for this discovery!

Hey credit goes where credit is due :wink: Though I feel kind of bad for not mentioning the guy who originally posted some instructions on how to achieve this from dxdiag (I assume in older DirectX ver) or wherever it was.

Whoever it was, I know about a setting called "enable screenshot in DX7" that appears in DX7/8 dialog

we're talking about legionairy. he told me it was possible, he only provided an impossible method (for me) to accopmlish it, so I started searching on the web. I remember that I found it very quickly, within half an hour or so.
