The F10 and F12 didn't appear to do anything but Rob's procedure worked just fine.

you're welcome.
that F10 key procedure may have worked only in earlier versions of Links (?)

Looks like Blade is the frontrunner. Might be the leader in mulligans too. :)

Perhaps its was CTRL-F10 or ALT-F10 - my memory of Links is fading.

Armand, I found it ! Links in-game Help section. Its ALT+F10 for BMP and CTRL+F10 for JPG, BUT after exiting the game, i can't find the Win7 Folder where the BMP or JPG was automatically saved :(

maybe its not compatible with Win 7 OS ?

I think the filenames are numeric sequence of numbers, but if you sort the files by date created, they should be near the top of the list. Check for the screen shots in one of the following folders (if exist):

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Links 2003
or
C:\Program Files\2K Games\Links 2003
or
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Links 2003
or
C:\Program Files (x86)\2K Games\Links 2003



If they are in none of the above locations, make sure hidden files/folders are enabled in Windows 7 and then check here:

C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Links 2003
or
C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Links 2003



If nothing there, them I'm out of suggestions.

The attachment playerstat.jpg is no longer available


(I'm guessing it was cart path aided.)


I agree with Higgi, had to be 17 at Kap Plantation... Windy F(C)/F(C).

I have 31 yards... when and where... no idea... and can't even imagine. It wouldn't surprise me if I chipped from on the green... which I believe goes as a putt.

BTW, Using Alt-F10 to capture a screen is ok, but then you have to go find it in <name>->AppData->Local->VirtualStore->Program Files (x86)->Links2003.

A faster way is using the Windows "Snipping Tool" Piece of cake and you can save it anywhere you want

Just click on the window (lower left) then type snipping. It will come right up... right-click then click "Pin to taskbar"

After you've saved a screen, you can also annotate using a pen supplied by the Snipping Tool.

I went to practice at Kap Plantation Driving Only with Windyw F(C)/F(C). 416 was the best I could do, but it was not a full tailwind and it was not full strength.

I also tried #6 at Bighorn LS but could not get a tailwind.

So, I'm guessing the big ones must have been there
