HOWTO: Running the EGA Version and Taking Videos and Screenshots
#1
Exclamation 
Often, I will ask people to run the EGA version of the game, do certain things in the game, and possibly also take screenshots or a video while they are doing it. This topic shows you how.

  1. The first step is to acquire the EGA version of the game. The easiest way to do this is to buy the game from GOG.com here – you can usually get it for only $1.49 USD when it is on sale.
  2. After you install the game via GOG, most likely you will want to replace the “starb.com” file with a version that gives you a million M.U.’s. This is so you can immediately upgrade your ship and get an appropriately trained crew right at the start. This file can be found here. This download only contains a replacement for the “starb.com” file, and will only work with the EGA version – please do not ask me for the entire game.
  3. After you get past the opening Starflight credits and the Interstel warning screen, press Win+G – that is, press and hold down the windows key on your keyboard, and then press the G key. That will bring up the game bar that is built into Windows 10. Using the game bar, you can take screenshots or record a video.
Any questions?

If you don't like the built in Windows 10 recorder or you're someone like me who still prefers to use Windows 7 or an older OS or Mac/Linux then I recommend OBS Studio. It's free, open source, constantly updated and highly customizable.

For screenshots, Dosbox Ctrl-F5 is both instantaneous and does not give you any sort of confirmation message or require you to click on something. It places screenshots into the dosbox folder/capture
