When you're testing your VN in the launcher, it will save all the screenshots in the launcher's folder. But once you create a build that makes it ready for others to play, it will be saving screenshots within the VN's folder. No changes need to be made if this is what you want.

Otherwise, to set where the screenshots are being stored, that's config.screenshot_pattern. Let's make it simple by having a folder specifically for screenshots in the game's folder. Within the game's folder, create a new folder and name it "screenshots"

Use this if you want to save your screenshots within the game's folder while testing. Change 'NAME_OF_VN's_FOLDER' to match yours. Just remember to delete the folder and remove this line once you're done, before creating a release build.

Code: Select all

define config.screenshot_pattern = "NAME_OF_VN's_FOLDER\game\screenshots\screenshot%04d.png"
Or do this if you want to keep the screenshots saved to a specific folder for the release version. It won't work while you're testing from the launcher, so temporarily put it in front of a # until it's time to make the release version.

Code: Select all

define config.screenshot_pattern = "game\screenshots\screenshot%04d.png"
