Screen Shot's Missing - Vista

Postby Awkward Turtle » Tue May 06, 2008 2:55 am

I've owned defcon for a while now, but have only recently installed it on my new laptop. In the middle of a 1 v 1 game i was playing against my friend I took a bunch of screenshots (mostly of markerboard drawings of his country blowing up (I was loosing at the time)) but alas and alack! When I went to look for them they were nowhere to be found. I've searched my entire computer several times, in several different ways and I'm fairly confident they are not on my computer. I did get the little notification popup of my taking a screenshot, so I know that part of it worked. And yes, I am running Vista, and no I don't like it so no need to bash me for that, it's not really by my choice. Thanks for any help anyone can give me.

You did try searching for screenshot*.bmp on whole hard drive?

Have a look around "C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Defcon\" ?

The pics were right were you suggested, thanks very much. You've just earned hero status from me. The reason they didn't show up when I searched for .bmps was I had forgotten to allow it to search in hidden folders, and that folder was hidden for some reason.

Anyway, thanks to you I now have regained my awesome pictures of him dying a markeboard nuke death. I can never hope to repay for this :D

If anyone was curious, this was one of the pictures saved by my new hero:

And yeah, both of us suck pretty badly at Defcon, I just happen to suck more.
