Map Bug ? + Screenshot Bug ?
Ok the map scaling or positional following seems to be off, or could just not be showing underground areas, if so perhaps a dotted line of those on map would be handy.
the map appears to have areas you can go and areas you can not,
but a lot of the time my positional marker shows me deep within the areas i can not go, at one point off the map altogether.

tried to take a screen shots but will not take any.
tried F12, print creen, ctrl print screen, alt print screen. ?

Not working for me or at least not placing them in the correct folder.
C:\Users\Craig\Documents\Alersteam\Exoplanet First Contact\screenshots
no screenshots being placed there.

just took that screenshot now.

then the issue might be caused by something else.

any antivirus you are running?

Keep in mind that the map is outdated, it was added in update #3 and doesn't include Windscream Canyon, for example.

As for screenshots, you can set the button in Steam settings: Steam (left up corner) -> Settings -> In-Game -> Screenshot shortcut keys. You can set the folder for screenshots as well.

Also, any time you press alt+F1 to send a report to us, the game creates a screenshot automatically, so what you actually need is just to describe the problem and make sure there's something you want to show us on this screenshot. Open your map, alt+F1 and tell us where are you now (THe Fort, for example) while your marker on the wrong position.

cragarion... thats the wrong folder... open View (the TAB next to Steam) and scroll down to Screenshots--- there you will find your Screenshots.

it's not. exoplanet actually does save screenshots in that folder too

we are both right :) the folder which you do mention is the hires folder xxx.png
The folder I´m talking about is the screenshot_upload folder, where are the pics for uploading are stored.. At least I use it for this purpose :)

Thanks but screenshots not there iether, there is definatly a screenshot folder for this game but no screenshots in it,
starting to wonder if my f12 key is broken.

normally you wil hear a "click" if you do a F12 and in the lower right corner will be a popup with the screenshot

nope that depends. if you run the game without steam, the sound wont be played and the files will only be saved in the screenshot folder in documents, thats why i prefere reffering to that folder, since under all circumstances that should work.

cragarion it's either your key is broken, another program is blocking the hotkey or an antivirus is messing with the screenshot folder under documents.

thats all the reasons i could come up with on the fly. maybe there are more :D

ah ok... did not know that you can run it without steam ;(
cragarion Dec 29, 2018 @ 6:07am 
Ok silly question do i have to have the steam overlay active for the steam screenshots ?.

As for screenshots, you can set the button in Steam settings: Steam (left up corner) -> Settings -> In-Game -> Screenshot shortcut keys. You can set the folder for screenshots as well.

Not sure about Steam overlay but I suggest you to take a look at my post once again. You can have other button, not F12 in your Steam settings. I bet that's the reason you can't make a screenshot if your Steam works fine. Also, there you can choose the folder for your screenshots.

Take a look at this:

P.S. Looks like you have to have your Steam overlay turned on.
