I just got a new computer with Windows 7. Well when i take screenshots, i get the yellow message saying they are saved to my screenshots directory. When i go to my screenshots directory which is a sub-folder of Forsaken World, there's nothing there. Anyone know where these screenshots are goings?

    That happen to me before, make sure you are logged on an admin account or else it cant write the file or some **** like that.

    Wasnt aware the computer had a screenshot folder of its own on windows 7, windows XP did not, but 7 is new to me. Either way this wasnt the problem

    I am the only account on the computer which is the administrative account. However windows 7 in its brilliance still doesnt allow changes unless you run the program itself as an administrator. Thats annoying to have the popup box every time you run the game. I did find another way around it. I went to the screenshots folder in Forsaken World, and went into the properties>permissions and granted users the right to write to the folder. That seemed to fix it without having to run game.exe as an administrator.

    anyhow *SOLVED*

    Thanks for reading.
