Please don't lose the clue that the preview of Khun-Phan might be helpful. It's one of the sweetest clues in all the Enigma levels! Tarim actually noticed the preview wasn't the initial screen from Khun-Phan and realised it must be a clue before he read the scroll.

That won't work - the mentioned screenshot has been taken after
playing for several minutes..

I'm sure Enigma will never be capable to do that automatically. :)
BTW: Anybody out there, who solved Khun-Phan?

If you really must generate ALL thumbnails automatically - then you could always add an inaccessible (and un-viewable) part of the Khun-Phan level map that just had what the preview should look like in it. Then point enigma.SelectThumbRegion at that. But please don't lose that clue :-)

Tarim eventually solved Khun-Phan, after weeks of walking around with a few pieces of cut-out squared paper in his pocket that he could get out and shuffle around whenever he had a spare moment ;-)
