    I don't think there is any screen app for the Wii you can buy, but wait for other members to post here, they might have some other options or opinions to give to you.

    The preview screens that ign have are given to them by the developers of the game.

    One thing you could do, is get a DVD recorder, record footage of you playing the Wii, then transfer it to your PC, and rip the videos off, take a single image and do whatever you want with it.

    It's how I got my avatar and signature!

    P.S. If you want any more info, just ask!

    Was going to post the same thing. Or if you use a PC that allows for video input. you usually have a way to capture the video.

    I think the point of this thread is to find the most convoluted methods to get screen shots. Mine is -

    Connect my Wii to my Tivo and record the screen input. Extract the file over FTP and use an application to convert the TY file to an MPG. Then use video editing software to extract the correct frame from the MPEG file and save it as a JPEG.

    Ok, you want a REALLY easy way? There is a cord out there that can let you use your computer moniter as a TV screen...then just press the Prt Scrn button. Seriously, the hardest part is finding the cord >_<

    If you just use a VGA adapter to hook your wii up to your monitor, explain where the print screen button is located on the wii.

    Think about that one.

    Thank you sadist, that's exactly what I was thinking of. The Print Screen button is located on the keyboard and the both the computer AND the Wii are hooked up to the moniter

    Print screen will only take a screenshot of what the PC is outputting, not what is displayed on the monitor.

    Edit:
    I just realized that you were talking about that thing that Sadist posted so nvm.

    It's awesome, but I wouldn't have referred to it as a "cable"

    Well there was a less advanced version that was even more of a cable than this one, but Sadist managed to find the upgrade that I had heard about...since I hadn't seen it yet I didn't want to mention it as if it were a fact

    I had posted it awhile ago to someone elses question inquering video's. I wasn't aware of a lesser version, however for the most part this is the type of utility to use. Besides lower quality 3rd party camera's aimed at the screen.

    Yeah, I found out about it during the days of the Gamecube...when it was still relatively new...

    The XCM V-box is not a good suggestion. It is a standard USB video capture device that has been modified to use a Wii video connection rather than the standard composite RCA.

    :lol: Think about what you just said. Don't try to pretend you meant what sadistblue posted because it is NOT the same thing.
