I was just wondering how I can take Screenshots in Oblivion? I hit, "Print Screen", but when I try to Ctrl+V into Paint or Photoshop nothing happens.

From the first page of the screenshot thread.

1. Open up "My Documents" and go to "My Games" 2. Open the "Oblivion" folder 3. Open up the Oblivion .ini file 4. Find the line "bAllowScreenShot=0", and set it to one. 5. Save and play 6. Press prnt screen to create a screenshot in your MAIN Oblivion Directory 7. Use a program to convert it from .bmp to .jpeg. 8. Post here, and send some to the site!

If you're running Vista, you have to turn off user account control. With it on, pics get hidden somewhere in the virtual store where nothing can find them. With it off, the .bmp files are in the oblivion folder like they should be.
