Cockpit screenshot request

Bit of a weird one this.

My main rig is down, brand new 1200w power supply failed (and a Seasonic, too! unbelievable)...I'm currently using a crapsville Pentium Duo from years ago. I'm praying when I bring her back up with a new PSU that I haven't lost my 5820k and dual Titan-X that I spent literally years saving for.

Anyway, I need a screen grab from WC3, naturally I would do this myself, only I can't. Old rusty Pentium has no CD drive, I took it out years ago, and since I'm using the internet through a WIFI USB dongle, downloads are painfully slow, I can't bare to download WC3 from Origin for the sake of one shot.

So basically, I need a screenshot of the Thunderbolt VII cockpit. The bigger the better. It's for a little project of mine.

Unfortunately the only ones I can find online are too small:



So, this being the CIC - I know you guys will come good for me. If anybody has the full res of that second spoilered image, that'd be great. AD? Maybe?

Thanks in advance all.

We have cockpit reference pictures for dozens of fighters at https://www.wcnews.com/news/2006/07/14/dozens-of-dashboards-at-your-fingertips but bear in mind that the game ran in 640x480, so what look like low res images are actually full res SVGA. The darket explosion shot you link above is as big as any in-game screenshot will get.

Thanks, I forgot about the resolutions we used back then. It's amazing how good the cockpits look even when the game scales them onto a large monitor.

I always thought that of all graphical assets of WCIII cockpits are the one that actually stood the trial of time

I would also say the Victory's environments when you walk around the ship hold up very well. I just couldn't believe how awesome they looked in 1994. You could see lots of detail on the escort ships out the bar and bridge windows, which went a long ways towards boosting my imagination when flying in the spaceflight engine.
