Screenshots with F12

Recommended Posts

So, I'm cruising along through Washington and come upon a beautiful bridge, meandering it's way thorugh some nice dense forest......

I think great time for a screenshot... Hit F12.... Yellow warning comes up says "You Must Stop Your Truck To Tak A Screenshot"..... I'm sorry... what???

Since when???

As far as I know, you guys are allowed to play with SCS software but cannot circumvent Steam software.....

It's not right..... Taking a screenshot with the F12 key affects gameplay in NO shape or form.....

You need to bring it back.....

F12 affects the gameplay.
When you press F12, your set will stop for a short time, causing danger for players following you.
That's why this and many other options / keys have been blocked while driving

No, it doesn't affect gameplay

Yes it does, when you take a screenshot there is a momentary freeze in the game.  That freeze is a hazard to anyone driving behind you as you've now stopped moving suddenly.  Even in single player there is a noticable FPS drop when you take a screenshot.

I highly doubt that.

Both F10 and F12 keys to take screenshots only work while your vehicle is completely stationary, I am not sure about severity of the lag it could cause while moving.

Using shadowplay to save just last 3 min of gameplay is much more hazardous, I always make sure nobody is following me, cause the momentary stuttering is quite strong.

So it is this way because as other say, you game will lag for a split second. This could cause trouble for people behind you, but it could also be used by trolls to cause damage to other people. Thats why you have to stop in order to take a picture :)

this is weird, when playing SP I do not see any fps drops when I press f12. maybe my fps is so low that the game doesn't even register the freeze. or maybe I use a lower scaling that doesn't effect it. as a side note my fps rarely dips below 30 fps unless if there is a person around with cromed everything

I think it has always been a thing that you can't take screenshots when moving in MP.

It will cause a huge risk to players being you, you may not stop for a second or so in your game, but you do on everyone else's, which creates a huge risk of someone ramming you from behind.
