Screenshot problem

Postby YeeTee2 » Fri Feb 12, 2021 3:46 pm

Whenever I take a screenshot it says "could not open C:/Users/Owner/Desktop/ethan/GZDOOM/Screenshots/[file name]". I'm using stable 4.4.2 and my screenshot_dir command is C:/Users/Owner/Desktop/ethan/GZDOOM/Screenshots/

Nothing here indicates there's a GZDoom bug, so I've moved this post to Technical Issues. This sounds like permission issues.
Does it work if you set it to use another folder, such as the Documents or Pictures folder? What about just "C:/Users/Owner/Desktop/ethan/GZDOOM"?

Try creating a new folder outside of the /Users area - let's say, C:\Temp\GZScreenshots - and set it to use that instead.

It looks like you are running GZDoom from a sub folder of your Desktop. That may be the issue.

So do you suggest putting my folder on the desktop?

No, somewhere that is not associated with the desktop of any of Windows' "special" folders. Something like C:\Doom\GZDoom or C:\Games\GZDoom.

It works now! Guess I gotta reconfigure all my ZDLs
