Hello.
I want to make screenshots at real msx size and only the colors used in this moment.
I don´t want PNG 24 bit depth color.
Is that possible?

I mean, could i get 256*212*16 screenshots?
If it´s possible could anyone please tell me how? I couldn´t find it on the manual.
Thanks.

Sorry for my english, i´m spanish and i would like to write better on english, but i don´t know.

If you only want to see the 'real' colors and square pixels, use the -raw option with the screenshot command, see http://openmsx.sourceforge.net/manual/commands.html#screenshot
You'll get a 320x240 screenshot, which you will have to crop manually. (It's still a 24-bit depth PNG, but it should only have a maximum of 15 or 16 colors.)

Ah ok.
I take some screenshots but seeing that they are 24bit i don´t think only 16 or 256 are present.
So it´s easy to convert to other format and other palette.
Thanks.

openMSX just always writes the same PNG format Smile Use a color counter on the raw screenshots and you'll see.
