Dis section

Post by Furburt on Wed Jun 15, 2011 10:22 am

Right, is anyone actually going to do a lets play sometime soon, or would it be better to just get rid of this and put future lets plays into the normal review section?

A guy my dad used to work with had the innovative solution of two monitors with a camera pressed really close to one of them.

You'd be surprised by how well this actually worked.

Or at least doesn't reduce your framerate to a crawl.

I mean seriously, modesty aside, I have a very good computer. I can run Crysis on highest with no lag blah blah blah. But the moment I turn on FRAPS, everything goes to shit.

When I'm playing a game with Fraps on, it's fine. Maybe a drop of 5 fps, nothing really noticeable.

But then I try to watch the video & if it's not Amnesia or Silent Hill 2 it'll run for two seconds perfectly then I'll be lucky to even get 5 fps.

I get a weird thing, either it'll run fine with slight jitters, but the sound will be totally fucked up and distorted, or it'll run terribly with perfect sound.

Are you guys using Fraps on the same hard drive? Apparently you want to record on a different hard drive while gaming in order to get the most out of Fraps. You also may want a more powerful CPU, but the requiring a second hard drive seems to be what's consistent.

Or so Google has told me.

Make sure it's not the same one the OS is running on, or so says one guy in this discussion. Along with it being same price or cheaper, better or same. As I said, what seems to be consistent in that discussion is that the HDD is the problem usually, not powerful enough, etc. Which comes around other sites as well, but that one is the best I can find for it.

But if all else fails, you can try this one.

Or this one.

Aw shit. I've got Steam & all my games on one hard drive & the OS on the other.

But really, WeGame works pretty well. The only issue is the sound, but that's not a problem unless you're going to talk.

Why not try Bandicam? From what I read from one dude in that discussion is that the worst he gets is 40 FPS.

And if not that, try Debut Video Capture Software.

Both allow audio.

Hmm. FPS dropped to <20, it was a little difficult to play. And there was a God-damn banner overlay.

Sound was perfect, but it didn't record my mic.

The chicken failed me!

Last time I buy chicken behind a Chinese shop.

Ah well, might as well record the video and then find a way to sync the sound with another program? Wait, can you rock two programs? An audio recorder and the video recorder?

Found a way for it to record my mic as well as the in-game sound but I'd rather it could record all the sounds my computer was playing so I could get some Skype in there. Gonna test that now.
But the framerate really was pretty awful. Not unplayable, but it made sniping difficult.

I'm gonna run it now with a Skype call going & minimum settings.

Well I was thinking use what has the best framerate and rock an audio program along with it then find some way to sync them. Makes it a bit complicated, but it should eventually work.

I'm actually going to do more research on how to get these working better. Extra hard drive won't do the trick, but I find it hard to believe that it's this hard to get a video recording software to work right.

FPS runs beautifully but who knew Crysis could be so ugly on low graphics. I'm at least going to test the boundaries a little, push the physics & object load distance up a bit.

Well, here's to hoping something works out...

Have you thought of using Xfire? The most you can record is ten minutes, but it worked pretty well for me from what I can recall. You can broadcast with it too, not sure if you can use the mic with it, though. Would seem strange that you couldn't, but then again the sound is supposed to limit the framerate as well. But when it actually plays, you can't notice much of a drop. Again, from what I can recall.

And I'm still looking up on how to get them working, seems a few people are having this problem. Very little solutions.

Not sure yet if your problem is in there, but it solves some others. Particularly sound lag.

Okay, WeGame doesn't have the same audio issues in Amnesia. Framerate was fine even on the highest settings.

Only problem was a green square in the top left corner.

I think the Green Square is good. It means the game is detected. Hit the hotkey and it should disappear when recording.
