Summary0001634: Long pause from taking first screenshot

I get a 5-10 seconds pause when taking the first screenshot after starting MTA. Subsequent screenshots take around 1 second. And no my PC is not that shitty: P4 3.2 GHz, 1.5 GB RAM, 6600 GT graphics.

TagsNo tags attached.

However, we're using an internal function to do this so I'm not sure whether there's much we can do without rewriting the function ourselves. It doesn't seem trivial enough at this point.

Well for starters the screenshot capture isnt very good anyway - it just takes a screen dump rather than a shot of MTA. This means in windowed mode you'll have a shot of desktop. Fraps is still the way to go for me.

If jpeg takes so long, why not use .BMP? id rather sacrifice disk space for speedier snap taking

As I've said we're using a GTA function to do this.. not our own one like in MTA:VC. This is not a major issue.. probably something for the future. We should save in .PNG format anyways cause its superior.
