Problem capturing gaming photos using Print Screen

Recommended Posts

Vercetti42

Hey guys,

 

I've been having this problem for sometime now. Print screen works while taking a screenshot of the desktop but not while capturing game photos. All I get is a black screen.

 

I'm running on Windows 8 and any help would be appreciated.

 

And it does not work with any game.

Try With Fraps.

Right click the game exe, go to properties, hit comptability and disable desktop composition. It's usually the Windows Aero theme stuff that causes that problem. Might be worth a try, should work.

Are you sure you're using Ctrl+Print Screen and not Print Screen only? This happened to me before, I think I was using Win 8 too.

Desktop composition isn't available in Windows 8 sadly. And Fraps messes up my PC and I also tried Ctrl+Prnt Screen but that does not work either.
