My Print Screen key is non functional. Is there an ingame keybind or any alternatives for taking screenshots 'On The Fly'?

If you have the deluxe or CE edition versions of the game you can use the holocam, which switches to first person view and drops the UI for the picture.

When you say your print screen doesn't work, is it because you can't find the screenshots? If so, they should be under your user directory, for windows machines.

Well you can keybind it to just about anywhere on your keyboard if you change the keybinds in preferences

I've used apple keyboard that does not even have a print screen on it
not a problem
just add another keybind

The digital edition camera item is not a solution, especially if you want a capture of what's in chat, a character sheet, inventory, other ui element.

interesting. let me try setting up an alternative bind to print screen.
I would expect it to fall prone to the same problems, but we will see, we will see...

I'd use Fraps. Allows you also to record video

Fraps +1.

Only that worked well. Print Screen key works sometimes but sometimes doesn't.
Also in Fraps, you can change Screen Capture Hotkey too (like to F12).

+2 on Fraps. The free version is enough for screenshots, too.
