V key stopped taking screenshots


Recommended Posts

I know there are other options, but hitting V is just simple.

It's quit working though and gives me an error message. "Can not open the screenshot file"

my screen resolution is 1920x1080x32 and FSX-SE's resolution is the same.

As usual, pretty sure I changed something without knowing it. Any ideas?

The only changes made are the addition of the Carenado 172N Skyhawk II (Which is pretty nice, BTW) from the Carenado websight and HD Trees downloaded through Steam...

You may have assigned it for something else? Looking thru Commnads for 'V' uses: 1. Ctrl+Shft+V=Cowl Flaps Open (incrementally), 2. Ctrl+V=Wing Leveler, 3. Shft+V=OBS Indicator (Select). Maybe this will rign a bell?


Of course you can always use the keyboard 'Prnt Scrn' key (or, keys) and paste it into graphics program.

I thought I'd found it in the Steam program. it has a screenshot key set to F12. I set it back to V, but nothin....

verified my installation, tried again... nothin

and on top of everything, all of my awards are gone. deleted the rewards .BIN file and renamed the RewardsOLD.BIN to Rewards.BIN (or whatever it was). Nothin


Fellas.. I'm stumped
