(FFXIV) Reshade won't save screenshots. 2 months 2 weeks ago #1

I am posting on behalf of my sister. I tried to look through some stuff myself, but I can't really find much.

She has the newest reshade and a preset that I made. I made sure her screenshot button (PrtScrn) is active, and the default directory *was* the game directory. We tried setting it to her desktop too to see if that did anything, but it didn't.

I am not sure what info you guys need, please let me know.

The reshade works in game and the preset its present. Just the screenshots do not save. I compared her settings to mine, and we have the same ones.

Run the game as admin, change the screenshot directory to your user folder in the ReShade settings or change the Windows folder permissions to allow writing. The program files folder does not allow you to write to it by default.
Cheers, crosire =)

After take screenshot, select [Log] tab on ReShade GUI.
I guess the error of screenshot will be logged bottom of log.
If logged there, wrong path or not have write permission of the screenshot folder.

Example:
Saving screenshot to (screenshot_path) ...
Failed to write screenshot to (screenshot_path)!

If not logged error, you have set the different key binding.
or if sound is heard from the ffxiv (like sound from camera), the screenshot was saved to screenshot folder. it was setting by ffxiv's system config.

I had her check, and it gives this message: media.discordapp.net/attachments/2758197...98793986/unknown.png

You do not have write permission of "game" folder.

1. End the game
2. Right-click the FFXIV launcher on the desktop and click "Run as administrator"
3. Take screenshot in the game

Thank you very much! It fixed. She recently got a new laptop and must have not switched the admin boxes back on.

Thank you again.
