Issue: (maybe) Cant screenshot using Printscreen key

Post by PREC0GNITIVE » Fri Dec 06, 2013 6:01 am

-IS this an operating system issue or a game issue? Close if OS-

Desc. Can not use "Print Screen" to take screenshots

Operating environment: WIndows 7 Ultimate

Steps to Reproduce:
1) Run FE
2) Sign into server (account)
3) Press Print Screen
4) Paste clipboard anywhere (e.g paint)

Expected Behavior:
Frame from game is copied to clipboard

Actual Behavior:
Only part of game that is copied is a little black box: Image (top left corner)
Also I looked for a folder in the install directory in case it was auto-pasting there but found none

Impact: Minor, just hard to show bugs :)

Additional Information:

CPU: AMD A6-3670 APu (Quadcore) 2.70GHZ
GPU:Nvidea GTX580 3GB

Application State:
Fullscreen: Yes
Resolution: 1280x720 (16:9)
Quality: High

There's nothing specifically in the game that would block print screen from working and indeed it works correctly on our machines. It could be a driver issue.

Alternatively the free version of FRAPS should work quite well for screenshots.
