Can not screenshot

Recommended Posts


I think what F-24a is saying is that making screen shots in the game is not working............ I know barely works any more.. always comes up as junk.

I always save as BMP now as JPG became a bit buggy for me. I then convert it with PS or Paint.net etc

At the risk of looking like a dumbass (which don't scare me no more, lol) have you guys tried replacing your Options .ini? I'm not sure why I think this would work, but if you cut and paste your present Options .ini to a safe location, you could try it with no harm done. Replacing the Options .ini solved some problems for me recently.

In that case, I'd suggest deleting options.ini altogether. Then run the game. It should create a new options.ini. Please try it, and see if the problem still occurs.

That's exactly what I meant above. F24A, my Options .ini looked fine too, problem was it was pointing to an earlier .exe of the same name (I think). And all my SF2 stuff is on my F: drive, too. :blink:

Abandon mods?

It won't do that. I recently experienced various issues with the game, deleted options.ini, and ran the game. Problem solved. I didn't lose my mods.
