Need a DOS 6.20 Screen Capture Utility for high resolution screen capture.  I have an old DOS 6.20 and a program that creates nifty graphic displays.  I want to capture these nifty displays and save them as a file (format can be jpg, gif, tif, bmp...I not picky about this.)

Any ideas out there experts?

oh.. free would be nice too :)

Are you running this on a windows machine or using the DOS 6.2 operating system?

Commented:
if you try running the application on a windows computer in a dos screen or command prompt screen you could use any standard windows screen capture utility such as printkey 2000.  http://www.webtree.ca/newlife/printkey_info.htm

I'm running in DOS 6.20 only.  No windows.  I need software compatable with DOS 6.20 that will convert screen graphics to a file format of some sort.  haim96 the software displayed on that link is not compatable with DOS 6.20.  Oh... I have GWBasic and Basica can I make something with either of those thats not too involved?

Hi abbdan,

This is Dos 2 compatible.
Do a find on the page for ST201F.EXE.

See if you can get hold of a copy of Graphics Workshop from Alchemy Mindworks.  It is DOS shareware & mainly used for interchanging formats but has a great 24-bit screen capture utility built-in.
