Cannot capture fullscreen many games

Comment by sirgregoryk

ShareX (and also Greenshot) cannot capture fullscreen directx (maybe also opengl) applications.
If you want to capture these applications, you need to run them in window (or borderless window) mode.

about ShareX Dec 2016

Confusing user experience. It's like frankenstein's monster. SareX can everything, but you should spend a lot of time to understand how it works. Useful for complex professional tasks only, not for a common user.
But the point is that the Greenshot inside ShareX looks better (cleaner) than standalone one.


Just a PSA for Those Who Use This Guy's Software -2 Helpful

Negative Comment by gammafication
about ShareX Jun 2016

The guy outright denies a feature I requested because he thinks that "he should draw a line somewhere". Bullshit excuse; I wouldn't be surprised if he c-ould code the setting in under 30 minutes. Then he proceeds to rub it in my face that he had the feature in before.

Not going to be using this **'s software anymore.

No linux version

about ShareX and ScreenCloud Jun 2014

there is no linux version for this application and all other alternatives on linux are not even close to ease of use and feature set. for now my recommendation is screencloud for linux users.


More options is not always better

Comment by wrygiel
about ShareX and Greenshot Feb 2014

ShareX seems to be a port of Greenshot. It has more options than Greenshot. However, Greenshot just feels much more "solid" when it comes to user experience. If Greenshot's options are enough for you, I would recommend Greenshot.

It is also quite true what one of the other commenters had said - the developers of ShareX seem to be very defensive when it comes to bug reports and feature requests.


Has potential, but...

about ShareX and Greenshot Nov 2013

The developers don't like bug reports or suggestions, it makes them defensive. (Not sure why they bothered making it open source.) And documentation is nil. Think I'll switch to Greenshot.

So much customization:
- Your choice of hosting services.
- Support account logins.
- Custom hotkeys.
