How To Print Your Mah-Jongg Results


Shanghai: Second Dynasty does not have any built-in printer drivers, but your computer probably does. If you want to print Mah-Jongg results, follow these steps:

Printing Mah-Jongg Results in Windows 95

- When the Results box is displayed on screen, press Alt-Print Screen on your keyboard.
- Switch to MSPaint, the picture accessory that comes with Windows 95 or any other paint program (you do not need to quit Shanghai: Second Dynasty). If your monitor is set to a resolution higher than 640x480, you can go to MSPaint by using the Start button\Programs\Accessories. If your monitor is set to 640x480 resolution, you can minimize Shanghai: Second Dynasty by moving the cursor to the top of the screen and then clicking on the Minimize button, then you can use Start to navigate to MSPaint.
- In MSPaint, you can Paste by using Edit\Paste, or by hitting Ctrl-V.
- Now you can print or save the picture. You can use any of a variety of widely available graphics utilities to crop the picture or convert it to a picture format that doesn't take up as much hard disk space as a .BMP file does. More information on graphics programs and compression utilities can be found in the chapter on Customizing Tile Sets.

Printing Mah-Jongg Results on a Macintosh

- When the Results box is displayed on screen, press Command-Shift-3 (hold in the Command and Shift keys while pressing the 3 key on your keyboard) to make a snapshot.


The Command key is sometimes referred to as the Apple key.

- Hide Shanghai: Second Dynasty by going to the upper right corner of the screen, where you will find an option to do this (no need to quit the game). - Look in the root directory of your hard drive for the file "Picture1." This is the snapshot you just made. If you made multiple snapshots, each one is assigned a higher number.
- Open the picture with a graphics program (more information on graphics programs can be found in the chapter on Customizing Tile Sets). Once you are looking at the results box in a graphics program, you can print it.
