BIS_fnc_exportEditorPreviews not saving PNG previews
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I am trying to create images for eden editor previews by utilizing BIS_fnc_exportEditorPreviews function but it does not seem to work for me no matter what I try to do. What I did so far:

Adjusted video setting as described here >
Adjusted arma3profile as described here >
Adjusted function call as described here >
Tried Stable branch
Tried Devbranch and diag.exe

Nothing of this above made it work, as the Screenshot folder always remains empty and RPT/Logs contain errors.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Eden Editor
Steps To Reproduce

Steps to reproduce:

Start Arma 3
Go to Editor and open Virtual Reality
Click on Tools in Menu and choose Debug console
Try to execute function

Observed: Game will be unresponsive for a few seconds and then console window can be closed and there will be popup with the error stating "DX11 error : Saving of screenshot to file failed: : E_FAIL", closing the popup window makes function to proceed normally wihout additional errors on screen but it wont save any screenshots and RPT will contain errors for every unit attempted to load and save screen of.

Expected: Function to execute properly and save screenshots to \Documents\Arma3\Screenshots\...

Additional Information

Function as I used it

0 = [nil,"vehicles",[independent],[],["rhssaf_c_troops"]] spawn BIS_fnc_exportEditorPreviews;

With fresh intel from @kju-PvPscene I got this resolved.

-profiles= paramater should not be used as startup parameter as it interferes somehow

HDR should be HDR>=16, I had it on 8 and it was failing

BIKI should be updated with this info.

Can be closed as resolved.
