    Hi.
    While I was thinking about what character to play as, I decided to delete a char. that I wasn't going to use anymore. I tried taking a screenshot of it, so after I deleted it I could still remember it, but the game suddenly crashed. I was able to reproduce the bug/crash twice, so it wasn't a one-time-thing.

    This happened at first while playing with OpenGL, and apparently happens too with DirectX.
    I hadn't tried taking screenshots while creating a char. but I'm assuming the same can happen.

    From the exception dialog, I'm assuming the problem is the game trying to find an incorrect directory from either KITO's default files or LM's :

    (Also, I know I shouldn't ask this here but, is there a limit on how many chars. per account?)

    I have reported this in the past and no one looked into it.

    I think the problem is that the game is trying to save to a folder that does not exist which results in a crash.
    I'd recommend trying to make a "last moon" folder in or near the screenshot folder and see how that works out.
    I know it's not a perfect fix but Myz has been pretty busy so it's the best you can do without him.


    And no there is no character limit, however when we leave alpha (whenever that is) you'll have a cap on how many presets said characters can have.

    I tried what you mentioned and, at least, on my game, exactly making a "screenshots" folder in the main directory fixed it. The entire problem must be that not every part of the game got "told" where to redirect screenshots now when the player tried to take one.
    Also, I know it's a minor problem but at first I thought no one ran into it before, because of how simple it is ^^'

    I should have checked the Bugs section before posting, because I just found your thread about this same thing, but since I saw no one mentioned then how to solve this exactly, this might be helpful for some people too.
    (also, by now that thread is a year old, so I would have necroed if I commented in it :x)

    Phew! I was worried I had made a lot of characters and was about to broke the limit!

    Yeah that's totally an odd bug, I know we have a screenshot folder in the "my content" part of the files but I think @Myz derped.
