Hey, when my game goes full screen, how can I even screenshot it? Puush and print screen doesn't work.
Like to know this in case bugs happen

When you hit printscreen, it saves the screenshot in a folder under NwN called "screenshots" I think, or something similar to that.

I run in windowed mode, but usually keep everything in full screen.  When I want to make a screenie, hit print screen, and it saves it in my NeverwinterNights/NWN/screenshots folder at a TGA file.  You need to get a file converter to turn it into a jpg.

Are you using CTRL-SHIFT-3 with puush? That'll capture fullscreen. If not, try windowed mode with CTRL-SHIFT-2.

You can alternatively just press printscreen, then alt tab, open paint.exe and press ctrl-v. Save as an instant JPG/PNG.

If they aren't saving to you screen shot folder in your NWN file, or saving as black screen, then it's some issue with compatibility. I had this a while, so i updated my drivers and downloaded this program that screen captures and records my game (movie style). Since then, I have not had any issues, and the screen shots save to my nwn folder.
