    Screenshot Function In Packaged Game

    Hi! I have a camera feature in my game that uses the "HighresShot 1" Command when it saves a pic. I have it set up to save the image to my desktop that I specified in the project settings window.

    My question is, when I package my game, how would it be possible to have a relative filepath so that the picture would save on another user's PC?

      There is nothing built into the engine that I am aware of that would send this picture across a network to another users PC.
      Something you would have to code in yourself, unless you leverage Steam or some other system that allows screenshot sharing.

        i think op means save to a non hard coded filepath like */user/pictures/screenshots and not something like c:/users/XXmikeXX/pictures

                Sure! The screenshot directory is in the Project Settings under Engine - General Settings
