View Full Version : Impossible to take screenshots with WickedGL?

I set the following bind :

bind F8 "screenshot"

and the game says that screenshots are taken, but when I go to look at them the screenshots are completely black. I could take screenshots in Quake 3 and RTCW, but don't remember if I had to use WickedGL in those games. Since I cannot load a game without using WickedGL ( the game crashes ), I'm wondering if it is the reason my screenshots are turning up completely black.

Anyone know if this is the case? Any fixes? Any chance the crash on load will be fixed so I don't have to use WickedGL?

I'm a screenprint junkie and usually take hundreds for each game I play, save them to CD, and use a custom prog to continually change my desktop image... I hope this can be remedied.

I Have to use WGL also (I'm on a V5) and Screen shots where black also, so i Bound the key to "Screenshot_tga" whitch takes TGA screenshots instead of JPG. so youll need to use a program to open them and convert them to JPGs

P.S
JPGs would be about 20-60 K.... TGAs are about 900 K (at a small Res)
