Hey guys for once I'm having a non-mod related issue...

I've followed the tutorials, done the paths and all that but regardless of me pressing the keys to take a screenshot in CE, I'm assuming something isn't right since the screenshot folder remains empty...

Anyone ever have this issue and fix it?

Alternative: Is there a program for taking screenshots or recording floating around out there?

You create a shortcut

AFTER the " mark, you add -console -devmode -screenshot



"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\haloce.exe" -console -devmode -screenshot



Then you run that shortcut.

There are other ways, but that should work. You don't actually need console or devmode, but having devcam is great for screenshots, as is using the command game_speed 0.


Is that what you were doing?

I got good news and bad news...

Good news is the screenshots are working. Just adding -console and -devmode with the -screenshot made it work (I already had -screenshot).

Bad news is my screenshots are TGA files and when opened anywhere all you see is a grey square.

Why the hell is it so hard for me to take a screenshot... Seriously what has my CE gaming become. I bet I'm the only person to have ever had this issue? Must be a Windows 10 or security thing once again making simple tasks over complicated.

I laugh at people who put STUDIOS in their name.

Oh hahah. The TGA files from halo's builtin screenshotter.

What's your current photo editor(if you have one) ?

those usually open targa files

I have paint, paint.net and GIMP. (I can get photo shop too but I need to reinstall it).

If it's too much I'll watch another 5 videos and eventually figure it out.

Too bad print screening the game doesn't simply do it...

...Or have I missed something with the TGA part?

This AA injector that works with CE also adds the functionality of saving screenshots via the Print Screen button. They aren't saved to clipboard such as how the function otherwise works, but instead saves them to your Halo CE directory as bmp images, so you can take as many as you want at a time.
