Features
Press PrintScreen to save the screenshot inside the project folder of RPGVXAce. Screens are located inside screenshot folder.



I didn't create a new folder and rename it "screenshot" and go on paint to make these two screens. That's the script doing the work with the convenience of the PrintScreen key.

How to Use
Paste this script above Main.

Note- Click on the pastebin link and then copy the script to your Materials.
Another note- If your keyboard has "Fn key" use it with/ for your Print Screen button.

From which button can I make a Screenshot?

It doesn't seem to work. I press the PrintScreen key and nothing happens. Doesn't create the folder nor the screenshots.
Did you go to the link where the script is located? (instead of copying the link as a script) I'll add that detail as a Note.

If you did copy the script and then try printscreen, it looks like nothing happen on the screen. You have to look in your project folder manually to see screenshot folder. It takes a few seconds to appear.

This might sound silly but I've done it before, do you need to press the function key for your Print Screen button? I know it's the case on some keyboards and would explain why it doesn't work.
Not silly at all, I used Fn key+Prnt Scrn button. Script instruction isn't really up to date since it was made in 2012.

I did in fact copied the script correctly. The thing is it doesn`t work for some reason. I've pressed the PrntScrn key and waited a full minute pass for it to appear, but nor the folder nor the screenshots were created.



I've even tried on a blank project and the problem still persists.
I don't have a FN key on my keyboard and my PrntScrn key is not broken as you can see, so I don't know what gives. :/
Where is your project file directory located? Which version of VX Ace did you use: Steam or Non-steam?
If you can, could you try the original script- https://gist.githubusercontent.com/rutan/2905662/raw/screenshot.rb

My project folder is located inside the 'RPGVXace' folder inside my Documents.

C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\RPGVXAce

It's the standard folder location path, I think.
And I use the Steam version.

Well, I tried to use the original version of the script, but again, got no different results.
I'll check with Rutan if it's possible for Steam version compatibility. Might take a while for a reply.

Script was tested on non-steam version. Not sure if it's same issue for others who use Steam.

Oh, I didn't know this was a thing.
I thought that all the versions of VX Ace were essentially the same.
Thanks for the help. I'll wait patiently for the fix, if available.
Just wondering, in your project directory of C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\RPGVXAce, could you search: screenshot in search bar. (making sure it's not hidden)

If anyone's looking for alternate script- there's Screenshot Taker. http://pastebin.com/raw/0fpPC0Xm
