Contrary to popular belief, we are not all-knowing-all-seeing magical beings!

If you want help you're going to have to provide lots of info. Like what is your hardware, what is your operating system, what version of GZDoom/LZDoom/whatever you're using, what mods you're loading, how you're loading it, what you've already tried for fixing the problem, and anything else that is even remotely relevant to the problem.

We can't magically figure out what it is if you're going to be vague, and if we feel like you're just wasting our time with guessing games we will act like that's what you're really doing and won't help you.

When you mention new version of gzdoom I assume you mean version 4.9.0

First of all, create the folders where you want to save the game and screenshot.
Then you have two options for the ini file:
  • 1 use gzdoom_portable.ini in the GZDoom folder
  • 2 let GZDoom create a gzdoom.ini somewhere in Windows
In the ini file, set the paths for save_dir and screenshot_dir

If you opt for option 2, then use whereisini in the console to find gzdoom.ini,
for example
This option has the advantage that it applies to any subsequent releases of GZDoom.
