  • why is it that every time I try to take a snapshot.  my computer turns OFF!!
    both the keyboard shortcut and the manual way shut down the computer.
    I'm trying to create a CJ but screenshots would help.

    Wow, beats me! Maybe you should try reinstalling Sc4. I had a similar problem once and a quick reinstall fixed the problem.

    Are you simply trying to take a snapshot within SC4, or grabbing a picture of your screen using CTRL+ALT+PrintScrn? If it's the latter it could simply be a matter of a missed keypress as my son used to do that, and every time he went for PrintScrn he hit Delete and shut his PC down! If the shudown is occuring from the picture taking function within sc4 then I would do as Mikeaut1 suggests and reinstal sc4.
