Is there an easy way to do this, ie not doing PrintScreen, exiting, saving somewhere & restarting game?
I heard of FRAPS, not tried it yet, any other suggestions?

That's the whole reason I got FRAPS. The main purpose of FRAPS is video recording, but you don't have to use that.

FRAPS says PC doesn't have SSE2 support and will not run (it's an XP we use for older games). Also tried DuckCapture, LightScreen, ScreenHunter & SnapDraw, they don't save any screen grabs either to file or to the clipboard.
Now I come to desperate measures I tried doing PrtScn and saving image myself but I cannot seem to capture screens mid-game anyhow, only during menus.

Any suggestions?

Pressing alt+tab after PrintScrn will send you to the desk top with the game still running. Paste it into your paint program, save it, then click the game window open and you are back in the game

...

Yeah. You need an older version of FRAPS that doesn't demand SSE2. How about 2.9.4? That ought to work.
