Taking screenshot from three positions


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I am quite new to modding. I am trying to create a small script that allows me to go from one camera position to another, while game is paused.


When I set GAMEPLAY::SET_GAME_PAUSED(true), next frame is not getting rendered (by research on this forum, it looks like i am not alone on this).

I also tried taking screenshot, rendering next scene in one tick and taking next screenshot in next tick. But this makes the two screenshot lag by one frame. Which makes lot of difference when entities with high speeds are involved (bullet etc).


I have tried slowing down the system by using GAMEPLAY::SET_TIME_SCALE(0.0f), but it does not make much difference.


What am I missing here?


Is there an existing mod for this? (pause the game and move camera around)


Any hint/help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Cuky,


First, I apologise for delayed reply. I was busy with other work.


The solution actually was quite simple. It worked with GAMEPLAY::SET_TIME_SCALE(0.0f).


The trick is though, you should do the GAMEPLAY::SET_TIME_SCALE(0.0f) one frame before you want to take screenshots. After that, though game still runs, movement is negligible for next three frames.


I hope this helps. Please let me know if you want me to post implementation.


Thanks and regards,

Hi akrram,


thanks for your reply. I'm already using this method, but I'm also looking for a solution without movement between frames, even if it is very small.
