#13348 new defect

AGS: in certain games screenshots only show chosen elements

Reported by: lwcorp Owned by:
Priority: high Component: Engine: AGS
Version: Keywords: screenshots, OpenGL
Cc: Game:

Description (last modified by lwcorp)

In certain AGS games such as QFG2VGA and Kathy Rain only certain elements are saved in screenshots, meaning screenshots are unusable.

Compare the attached QFG2VGA screenshots (internal ones taken with alt+s and external with alt+print screen), including in the very first scene of the game.

Could it be related to #12438 or even the much less severe SCI issue #13767?

Does this still happen? I couldn't reproduce it with the current development version when I just tried it.

comment:2 by lwcorp, 5 months ago

Yes, it still happens, just reproduced it in v2.6.0git5160-g7b29c092086 (Apr 17 2022 04:49:50).

Odd, I still can't. I assume all I should have to do is to start the game and press Alt+S for a screenshot. (And I assume it's the remake by AGD Interactive.)

comment:4 by lwcorp, 5 months ago

Yes, but be sure to literally start the game (where you can walk around, talk, etc.), as saving the intro screens work. Look at the screenshots above to see how they look due to this bug vs taking them externally.

comment:5 by eriktorbjorn, 5 months ago

This time I walked around a bit before taking a screenshot, but I still couldn't reproduce it. I'm running ScummVM in Linux, and I tried both the "SDL Surface" and "OpenGL" graphics modes.

So I have no idea. Sorry.

comment:6 by lwcorp, 5 months ago

I've tried it in Windows, and it gets fixed if I manually use SDL Surface instead of Default or OpenGL. Although the game's screen is a lot smaller that way...

This also happens in Kathy Rain (see attached screenshot, tested on Windows x64 2.6.0), so it's not unique to this game.
