Several of you have asked how to take a picture of their score on a Palm. There are several programs that allow you to do this. I am going to explain how to do it with ScreenShot, a shareware developed by LinkeSoft (the demo lasts for 15 days).

First you need to install it. Download the program from http://linkesoft.com/screenshot/screenshothack.zip.

You will need also to download a "Converter" from the same site: http://linkesoft.com/screenshot/screenshotconvertersetup.exe and executing this program will install the Converter on your desktop.

Unzip the Screenshothack and install the prc file on your Palm. It requires the use of an Extension Manager such as HackMaster, X-Master, or TealMaster. If you don't have one already, install the X-Master freeware of Linkesoft, which is in the same zip file. After Hotsync, activate ScreenShot in the Extension Manager by checking its checkbox.

There you can also setup the way to activate the screen capture. For example, you can select to activate it by a slide from Calc to Find:


Now you can go to the score page of FitalyLetris by going to the menu and selecting Game/HighScores to display your score sheet (this is not mine, it is one from the DP II contest):


Now you can do the Calc-to-Find slide to capture the score sheet. After HotSync, you will use the Converter to convert it to a gif file:


One last point: When you run the Converter, it gives a name such as screen08.gif to the image. I recommend that you rename it to something like YourNameNov18.gif to avoid conflicting names when uploading the image with your message.
