In-game screenshot function is needed.
New, WishlistPublic


There is currently no way to take screenshots in-game without using third-party software such as FRAPS or using the Steam Overlay. Third-party software is a drag on performance and the Steam Overlay does not work for me (SHIFT-TAB does nothing and F12 only brings up a command window; I have Steam Friendly UI enabled and the Steam In-Game enabled in my Steam settings). PrintScrn only produces a pure black image for me and requires ALT-TABing.

Given that the game includes a "Splendid Camera" with many pan/zoom functions it might as well have a native "Take Picture" function like most other games do to allow players to avoid all the extra hassle of setting up screenshot sofware.

Goddammit, people, it's not steam friendly UI, it's stReam friendly UI.

Whoops. Okay, ignore the part about "Stream friendly UI." The rest of the issue is still valid.

BIS_fnc_exportCfgWeapons actually calls a command diag_screenshot. However, this appears to be disabled in the Dev and Stable versions of Arma 3.
