Thread: V key stopped taking screenshots

  1. Default V key stopped taking screenshots

    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...

    Will the v key work in windowed mode?

    I was hoping you'd pop in! Nope. Doesn't work in Windowed mode either

    Have you tried the delete FSX.cfg and let it rebuild trick?? Don't forget to backup your original!

    no luck there. I've run into the problem before but just can't remember how I fixed it.

    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
