Description

It would be a nice addition to the interface if a small screenshot would be saved along with the savegame which then is displayed in the save/loadgame interface.

The screenshot doesn't need to be included into the savegame itself but can exist as an separate file with the same name. Then the savegame or screenshot can be distributed independantly of each other if necessary. The interface would show a default image for a missing screenshot.

Another solution would be to write savegames into a ZIP-file accompanied by the screenshot, thus keeping related files easily together and optionally reducing the required diskspace for both, if you would not choose to simply store the files into a ZIP-archive without any further compression for speed reasons.
