I was finally circled by the flimsy airship during clear daylight and when i went take a pic with joystick the four top triggers don't take pictures on the PC like the PS2 does.Is there a way to take in game pics without getting a 3rd party program? I just want to take a daytime and night time airship pic with the fire spewing out of it. (The manual was no help.)

Scroll lock + Print Screen. Took me awhile to figure out as well~

Default described above removes the UI.

If you want a screenshot with UI, You can use a 3rd party program like free, small, lightweight, 'Screenhunter' to take a pic, but the trick is... you put FFXIV in windowed mode, AND, you leave a tiny bit of desktop showing, so you can click on the desktop, thus making desktop and screenhunter active. If FFXIV is the 'active' program for mouse clicks and such, Screenhunter won't respond to your keyboard. You click on the desktop sliver to make desktop , not FFXIV active, each and every time you want to activate Screenhunter for a pic.

Btw, a lot of people take pics with names still on. Awful SE programming not to have a key for toggling names, but if you want a 'clean' pick, go into options and turn names off too.

Oh, another reason someone might want to use a third party program for a pic is to avoid the obnoxious copyright and potentially other watermark stuff SE may put in the pic files.

Thanks, Scroll print worked fine but it buried it in some sub directory I'll search later when the game isn't running. I tried for 30 min once to play this game full screen i cant I'm always looking at craft recipes item drops in windowed mode so the screenhunter might be worth a look.Maybe I'll make a collection of moon pic like I did in FF11 but first I'll have to leave The Black Shroud to even see the sky.

Typical of SE.

They have a screenshot folder but didn't include an ingame key to make screenshots and send them there.

I took 20 pics tonight and the game buried them somewhere in the Square Enix\Final Fantasy XIV\ Screenshot Sub folders. I'll try the ctrl+alt+print screen tomorrow at least I'll know where they're being saved. That screen hunter program is looking pretty good about now. Thanks again for all the help.

You can also type /names to toggle it on and off

I have another question for anyone that might know. Is there a way to Toggle off the UI but not show that damned Copyright notice in the corner?
