Is there an easy way?

I haven't done this in awhile because it's a pita, but on occasion I've saved games to a word doc by opening each page, selecting all and pasting each page into the doc.

Is there an easier way to do this?

Having games in docs makes it easy to analyze when connecting to the internet is an issue.

I believe you can save each individual page onto your C drive. Just hit when you're in your browser and on the appropriate page control-s.
Now, which filetype to save as I'm not sure about.
What browsers you can open them in I'm not sure about (the things you save will be stored offline on your C drive, but can only be read IN a browser, usually of the same type the document was saved in, e.g. requiring Chrome if you saved this page in Chrome).

The links on a page may or may not work properly. If they DO work, then they'd probably attempt to call up the actual online link, e.g. if you saved this page and tried to click on Administration while on the page which is on your C drive, it'd bring the Administration forum up online rather than on your C drive if you have the Administration forum saved there.

But it's possible, even viable.

you can use a "grabber"

there are multiple applications that can do that. Internet Download Manager is one of them on top of my head

Is a grabber any different than alt-a + alt-c? Would it only do one page at a time?

I was wondering if there was a way to download an entire game in one swoop. Like some websites give you print friendly viewing options.

Thanks for the responses FA and mastina.

its will save the entire html page and all the relative files so you can open the entire page in your browser offline. some grabbers are programable so you can tell them to grab all the pages that have "?f=8&t=71938" (the part in url that shows the forum and thread id) that way it will download all of the game pages in one swoop but I'm not sure which grabber can do that.

Before the site was migrated to phpBB3, there used to be a print view that stripped threads down to the bare-bones posts, and could show, like 250 posts at once, I think. I wonder if bringing something like that back would be possible.

Mods/coding team?

This was what I was looking for. Something along these lines would be perfect!

There is print view in phpBB3, which can be accessed right above the Logout link, but it displays only 25 posts at once.

Chrome can also save pages as PDF if you print and then select "Print to PDF" (paraphrased) as your printer.
revise and resubmit

Little-known trick: do what Equinox said above, but also add &ppp=200 to the end of the URL. You'll now have printer view with 200 posts per page.

Ha...I was trying to do something like this but was not having any luck. This is 1 step short of what I was looking for (Just missing the entire game). 200 posts at a time will work great.

Thanks
