TOPIC: [SOLVED] Massive FPS drop and screenshot spam

Massive FPS drop and screenshot spam 1 year 11 months ago #1

System: Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 x64
CPU: AMD Athlon X4 760K 3,80 GHz
GPU: AMD Radeon R9 270X 2GB
ReShade Version: 1.0.0.915 32-Bit

I have noticed both in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Hearts of Iron III that when the effect .dll is loaded into the game, the game itself seems to freeze in a odd way. It only happens when I run the game with the .dll file. When browsing the game folder, I also notice a huge spam of screeenshots of the main menu.

Any ideas? This has happened to me in the past, in Half-Life 2, using ENB Series, so I think is a problem related to the FX engine.

Thanks.

You either have bound the screenshot key to some key you use very often (via "#pragma reshade screenshot_key") while playing or something on your system causes the default print screen key to be registered as being held down at all time. In case of both options, try to change the screenshot key binding.
To do that, add "#pragma reshade screenshot_key 123" to any of the shader files. Replace "123" with the keycode of the key you want to use, in this case F12 (see msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows...31%28v=vs.85%29.aspx for a list of possibilities, note that you have to convert them from hexadecimal to decimal convention before using).

The second option is more probable, since i do not press anything while in the menu, just move the mouse around. Then something is making reshade to make screenshots like crazy, as you can see in the log, it creates 1 or 2 each second:

Do you have any idea what background program could be causing this? I only have Steam and some system tools.

Some macro software like AutoHotkey maybe?

Found it, it was a desktop snap tool. If anyone have this problem, disable any screen capture program like Puush or Postimg.

Thanks for your help.

UPDATE: The problem was not the screenshot software but the key you use for it. If you press PrtScr while SweetFX is active, it starts capturing the screen without pause. You have to press PrtScr again to stop this.
