TOPIC: [SOLVED] Witcher 3 crash when taking a screenshot

Witcher 3 crash when taking a screenshot 1 year 5 days ago #1

So, I started to have a slight problem after porting my settings to the new version of ReShade (1.1.0)
Whenever I try to take a screenshot in the game it just crashes, this didn't happen when I was using the previous version of ReShade (1.0)
Here's my dxgi info:

What happens if you change the screenshot key to a different key (#pragma reshade screenshot_key X)?
Cheers, crosire =)

I'm not actually sure where I should paste that line but I tried it in ReShade.fx and I wasn't able to take screens using the defined key...

Meaning it crashed or nothing happened?
You can paste that line anywhere, in any of the shader files.

The following would change the screenshot taking key to F12:
#pragma reshade screenshot_key 123

I must have done something wrong before but now it seems to work. Changing the screenshot key to F12 allows me to take screens and the game doesn't crash anymore :-) Any idea why it started crashing in the first place?

Could be some other tool interfering or maybe an incompatibility with the games own screenshot feature (if it has one, I'm not sure).
