Blank Screenshots

Filed in: Unreal Tournament.

I got a bit of a surprise a couple of days ago when I tried to take some screenshots in Unreal Tournament 2004. Last month, while trying to get the UT3 demo working I updated the drivers for my PC's graphics card. Unfortunately, what I didn't know at the time is that there's an incompatibility between UT2004 and the latest version of the nVidia drivers which means that screenshots now come out completely black.

There's a thread in nVidia's forums, and a thread in Epic Games' forums. The one on the Epics Games forum suggested downloading and installing nHancer, which allows finer control over nVidia graphics settings, but it didn't make any difference.

Since Epic hasn't released a patch for UT2004 since 2005, hopefully nVidia will release something that will fix the problem...

Edit: I came up with my own solution!
