So I just started again after a few years off, and can not find my screenshots anywhere. Any help?

If they are not in your eq screenshot folder.. then i don't know what to tell ya.

hmm there is no screenshot folder :(

My computer-Local Disk-Program Files-Sony-Everquest-Screenshots... Should be a folder.

Note that there are actually a few different places your EQ folder might be found, depending on when you initially installed EQ.

\Program Files\EverQuest
\Program Files\Sony\EverQuest
\Program Files\Sony\EverQuest Trilogy


Regardless of where that folder is, there should be a "Screenshots" subfolder inside it.

If you took screenshots a number of years ago, they might be in the base EverQuest folder.

Several years ago, there was no screenshot folder and all screenshots just sat in the main folder with a bmp extension. Are you using your old install or did you do a fresh install of EQ recently?

I just DL'd EQ from the patcher after coming back from a couple year hiatus. EQ was never installed on this particular computer before. I've got a Sony folder and an EverQuest folder in my Program Files folder,neither of which contain the Screenshots folder.

Perhaps if I just created one, would they go there?

If you reformated your computer at any time then your screenshots were lost. The servers do not keep your screenshots... So DLing eq is not going to do much. However if you are sure your screenshots should be on your computer I recomend that you use search from your start menu and look up jpegs to upload all the pictures you have on your computer. It's tedious but I assume those memories are worth it :D GL

Found them, they somehow got placed in my Documents and Settings folder, along with a bunch of other EQ stuff. Mysterious.

And I wasn't looking for my old ones, just the new ones I recently took. The SS's folder ended up in my Documents & Settings file in C:

Glad you found them
