Solved How to take screenshots of Far Cry 3 (uplay) Tags: PC gaming Games Video Games Last response: December 12, 2012 3:19 PM in Video Games Share velosteraptor December 5, 2012 1:45:11 PM I haven't been able to find anything in Google related to this, but i just want to take a few screenshots of this amazing looking game. uplay doesn't seem to have a built in function for screenshots, and the default ctrl+print screen comes out as a solid black image. I tried a few programs, greenshot and one other, and both of them would not take screen shots while in a game. If anyone knows of a program that will work, or if there is a built in function i am missing, please let me know!

That's exactly what i was experiencing with the 2 programs i tried, as well as the default. The video would lock up for 5-10 seconds why the sound continued, and the screenshot would be solid black. Maybe its just not possible right now? I've played the game a total of ~2 hours, and the game crashed 3 times while in the menus, on top of the screenshot issue. m 0 l Sunius December 5, 2012 5:13:13 PM I haven't played Far Cry 3 myself, but in other games that only caught black screens with print screen, MSI afterburner would give good screenshots. It might be a game bug. m 0 l velosteraptor December 5, 2012 5:42:18 PM Sunius said:I haven't played Far Cry 3 myself, but in other games that only caught black screens with print screen, MSI afterburner would give good screenshots.

Missed it. m 0 l OS Outlawz December 8, 2012 12:56:02 AM I have been running FRAPS and using their in game screen cap.
