Record your ED exploits

Postby sanctuary1952 » Fri Aug 28, 2015 12:48 am

I have been in envy of those with higher level computers than I have who have been able to record their ED moments.
I read on one forum that to enable the Nvidia video software you needed a much higher level Graphic card than my sad little Nvidia GT 330M !! :lol:

My laptop specs:
Samsung R780
Intel Core i3 CPU M330 @ 2.13 GHz
32bit OS
64 kilobyte primary memory cache
256 kilobyte secondary memory cache
3072 kilobyte tertiary memory cache
64-bit ready
Multi-core (2 total)
Hyper-threaded (4 total)
Bus Clock: 533 megahertz
Installed Memory 4 GB
NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M [Display adapter] :lol:

..and I still manage to play ED..with some stuttering...variable frame rates :shock: and of course the laptop gets ....hot!

BUT.... I have discovered that I can in fact record ED videos!! :D

1. A beautiful little program called FRAPS which as well as showing real time frame rates has the ability to record your video games whilst playing!
I got ...ahem... "Arrrh me heartys" .."Pieces of 8..pieces of 8" retail version because the free version only allows 10 secs. of recording.
2. You need the Xvid codec pack http://download.cnet.com/XviD-Video-Codec/3000-2140_4-10651548.html
3. The videos produced by FRAPS can be huge in size so the last thing you need is Virtual Dub to greatly reduce the file size yet retain the resolution http://download.cnet.com/VirtualDub/3000-2194_4-10184313.html


Works a treat!!!!!! ;)
