After searching around and looking through the config files I couldn't find a way of changing the default screenshot key binding of PrintScreen, nor a way to set a custom output directory for screenshots.

As other programs can't capture ReShade's injected effects being able to customize the screenshot hotkey and screenshots directory is something sorely missing, both for the customizable nature of the framework and user's own needs, and for being able to organize screenshots.

Would love to see these features added in a future version, as there's clearly a lot of love in the project and for tinkering with ideal settings :)

0.19.0 now allows changing the screenshot location. Just add "#pragma reshade screenshot_location "<PATH>"" anywhere in one of the fx files, where <PATH> is a valid path to an existing directory (like "C:\Users\...\Desktop"). Don't forget the quotes around the path.

Fantastic! Thanks for the quick update on the first feature. Will test when I get the chance. Will help a lot with keeping things organized.

With the eventual custom keybindings it will be the perfect combination ❛◡❛

Possibly my english is not good enough,but I can't get it to work. I only have one Fx file "Reshade.fx" Put it in,but nothing happened.

Just put the following (with your custom path) on a separate line in one of the shader files:
#pragma reshade screenshot_location "C:/......./MyScreenshots"

Please make sure you are using either "/" or "\\" to separate folders in your path. "C:\Test\Path" won't work for instance, because the string is escaped. It has to be "C:\\Test\\Path" or "C:/Test/Path".

No it is not added yet, you can past this line on top of ReShade.fx for now::

#pragma reshade screenshot_location "C:/......./MyScreenshots"

With your screenshot folder location of course. ;)

No biggie, but this doesn't seem to work for me.

Note: There is a space in my screenshot path, if that matters.

Doesn't matter, as long as you put the path in quotes.

Looks like the setting requires the use of forward slashes rather than backslashes in the path (at least going from the example above).

Strings use escape sequences, so there is nothing wrong with backslashes, but they need to be escaped:

"C:\\Test\\"

ReShade 1.0.0 Changelog
Added option to change screenshot key via "#pragma reshade screenshot_key"

Hello!

Can anyone help me please - how can i add custom screenshot key to standalone "ReShade 1.0.0 with SweetFX 2.0 package"? :blush:
I want to bind F12 for screenshots. I think that F12 keycode is 123 if it's does matter.

Thanks!


EDIT: Managed to edit ReShade.fx with new line #pragma reshade screenshot_key 123
