Hello Nohope, thank you for the work you`re doing.
We are using your software for CS2D (Counter-Strike:2D). Yesterday an interesting bug occurred which we`d like to get some clarification about. We have a MOSS report with a number of screenshots.
This screenshot is a “normal” screenshot. It has these dark areas on the left and right which simulate “fog of war”, all HUD elements, pointer, and game graphics are displayed properly.
These screenshots are “bugged” ones.   In some, game graphics looks like graphic artefacts (black squares), it lacks HUD, but most importantly, it lacks fog of war – as you can see, game field is completely visible, without dark areas obstructing player’s vision. This bug (?) with fog of war is what our community is musing over.
One party think this is a clear evidence of the “no-fog-of-war-cheat”, because no FoW is present.
The other party says these screenshots were taken when the game graphics is being drawn, so only MOSS itself sees it, not the player.
What do you think?July 13, 2017 at 8:38 pm #2400
Unless the game is badly coded , I highly doubt this could be a bug.
if it was the case, a player running a desktop duplicator process would be able to cheat just using a second monitor.
this would be the first game and the first time I hear that. maybe you should ask to game dev if they overlay in any way to create the final renderJuly 14, 2017 at 7:42 pm #2404
CS2D developers guess that MOSS takes screenshots from some sort of backbuffer / Z buffer, might this explain the problem?July 14, 2017 at 10:46 pm #2405
screenshot method depends the OS level, which of GDI DX9 or DX11 appears in log ?July 14, 2017 at 10:50 pm #2406

I use the front buffer in your case (DX9) so I should only see what is made available by the game , if some objects or textures are missing , it means they arent available at screenshot time , I have not way to know the buffer is incomplete
