Backup folder

Post  Treamcaster on Sun Mar 30, 2014 5:55 pm

In the past, save files and screenshots taken in fullscreen would show up here.
Now not one thing or the other. Why? You guys now taking shots using fraps?
prt sc's not working right with pso, all I get is a white screen with a grey bar on top (when I paste to mspaint).

Are you running PSO as an administrator? You need to either do that or disable the UAC under Vista/7/8, or PSO won't have permission to write to that folder. I think I'm one of the few people who uses the PrintScreen key, because I play full screen. It doesn't work in window mode and requires something like Fraps instead.

Yeah, I disabled UAC and got some trusted reg file to add "Take ownership" to the context menu. I also went to the folders properties, unchecked the "Read-Only" box and applied to all the folders and sub-folders, then it said I needed permission to continue. I clicked continue and it seemed to work. Next time I checked folder properties again, the "Read-Only" box was checked again. Brgg... anyways, I got fraps so no problem.
Also yeah, I know that window mode never worked for prt sc., somehow things get messed up.

Folders always have Read-Only marked with a grey checkmark, I think. You need to check the properties on a file to see if the box is unchecked now. I guess window mode is more popular now that many people have widescreen monitors. Windows 7 seems to let you make full screen games hold their aspect ratio, but PSO is apparently so old that the option doesn't work.

It remains checked. But never mind, I'm happy with fraps.

Kinda off topic what I am about to say but, I think my PSO pc looks a little blurry, mainly noticed in text (menus, etc.). It's because of it's low resolution I assume. However pso dc through vga looks definitely sharper.

PC looks normal to me in full screen, but the graphics become much worse when the game is run in window mode for some reason. Even the SEGA logo becomes pixelated.
