    Taking World Of Warcraft Screens
    I've tried Grab and using shift-command-4 + spacebar. Both result in capturing a black window.

    Does anyone know how to successfully screen cap the game?

    in that case,I dont play wow, but try going to the app, control click it, click show package contents, then look in the different folders for a folder called screenshots.

    Okay, you are going to remap a key to act as F13. You won't find a screenshots folder in your WoW folder until you take a screenshot, make sense? During the game you can hit F13 (or whatever key you bind this function to) and it will show a little message on the screen (screen captured), after exiting the game go back to your WoW folder and there will be a new folder inside called "screenshots" where all your screenshots will be saved.
    Looking for a PowerMac G4 for $500 or less USD.

    you can also use the command-shift-3 to do a screen shot and if you want to capture video you use snapz pro x which has a free trial of like 30 days and then it costs like 10 bucks
