Why it's black??

 

We take many screenshot of this guy and all are black.

 

But when we take a screenshot from another player it's fine and we see without problem.

 

Thanks :D

Could be several things......the worst being a screenshot blocker (part of a cheat). Have you tried making a demo of this player? Have you contacted this player about this?

 

Ask the player to make sure they have the latest video drivers installed for their video card.

Found this little jewel of an explanation for ya....direct for Tony Ray of EvenBalance:

 

We've had some commotion over black pb screenshots, can you please clear this issue up?

 

Evenbalance|Tony: This is a pretty complex issue. Basically, PB gets the screen buffer from the DirectX interface. Some versions of DirectX in combinations with certain video cards are buggy. On machines with the buggy combination, the DirectX interface sometimes returns the wrong buffer to PB. This happens mostly on systems with 2 monitors - that is how you can sometimes see a player's background or task manager (players should make sure to run the latest versions of DirectX and their video drivers if at all possible to avoid this). For some newer video cards, PB just always gets an empty buffer instead of what the player is seeing, this is what causes the black screens. I'm not aware of any bug that can cause only a crosshair to show up on a black screen. For now, admins just need to give players the benefit of the doubt unless they sometimes get real screens and sometimes black from the same player - that would definitely indicate a hack. We are planning a full rewrite of PB's screenshot facility to address these and other issues with PB screenshots and related hacks. Keeping up with cheats is the priority, but we'll get to this as soon as we can.

There's no need to wait for him to come back just go through your server logs find his GUID and ban it.
