Screen Shot Filename

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Screen shots are used by a large majority of the player base.  The filename created "screen_772ecb06-6f5f-4812-a618-d89f0fb2306f" and "screen_6f900529-2f2a-4a2a-af67-f3ac96d20c4f_hi" can be difficult to distinguish one screen shot filename from another.  The debug screen shots have different filename structure "screen_(-5, 2, 0)_714f52de-e400-4ecd-abc9-342b031e3285".

Can the screen shot be titled differently?  Maybe include the save file name associated with the screenshot.  Allow the player to initialize the screen shot file name string in the settings panel and tack a counter to keep the filenames unique.

Also could screenshots be placed inside unique folders associated with the save slot being used.

Bonus points if anyone can figure what the code indicates for the current filename structure. 

 

The filename is "screen" an underscore then five groups of hexadecimal numbers delineated by dashes.  The first hexadecimal group consist of thirty two bits then the next three groups are sixteen bits followed by a beast ninety six bit group.

The debug screenshot filename has the coordinates in parentheses after the word "screen". 

The "_hi" tacked on at the end of the filename indicates the screen shot is high resolution.

What are the numbers representing?

I suppose you could create some type of .bat file to do this.  Something like looking at your savegame file date/times.  For example, Save1 you last played (and saved) on 7/4/2019 17:15.  Save2 you just saved at 7/9/2019 13:15.  Any screenshots with a datetime stamp between those 2 datetimes would go in Save2's folder.  You would have to look at the latest save filename to determine the correct folder to put it in.
