Fallout 76 Pictures Not Saving Fix:
- What Can You Do to Fix It?
If you’re using Windows 10 and experiencing issues where the photomode isn’t saving pictures, please try the following steps.
First, make sure your graphics card driver is up to date by checking with your manufacturer’s website or searching for it in Microsoft Store.
Next, update your device drivers from within Device Manager (Right-click on Computer > Manage > Device Manager).
You may have an outdated or corrupt graphics card driver which can cause a variety of issues. Lastly, uninstall and reinstall Fallout 76. Once complete, startup photomode again to see if this resolves the issue.
- Check Your In-Game Settings
The first thing you should do is check your in-game settings to make sure photomode is enabled and that your character is wearing the correct outfit.
Under video settings, make sure enable photomodes is checked on. In the Pip-Boy menu, go to the Apparel tab and look for any clothing that says photogenic or reposition.
- Check Your Mods
It is possible that your save folder has been corrupted. You can check this by first closing out of the game and then going to C:\Users\YourUserName\Documents\My Games\Fallout 76\.
Open the Fallout76.ini file with a text editor, and make sure that sResourceDataDirsFinal=STRINGS\, TEXTURES\.
If this line isn’t present, add it. If that line is there but doesn’t have TEXTURES at the end of it, change it to TEXTURES\.
If this line is there with TEXTURES at the end of it, delete everything after TEXTURES so only STRINGS\ remains. Then try restarting the game and see if photomode starts saving your screenshots again.
