Nice, Freja xD this post is Win. Lots of players running around with FRAPS running, who know how to compress and upload vids and submit tickets is about the best defense against hackers this game has at the moment. Also fun for amusing naughty vids involving costumes and unintended emote consequences.

Yes it would! If you have the space for a 60 FPS clip (double the size) I guess you could go for that. The important thing is to never choose a higher FPS in the Fraps settings than what your graphic card can render during the recording. If you do that you will get repeated frames, which is unnecessary :o

Updated! I can't change the topic, but it should only be "HOW-TO Video capture with Fraps and encode". Hastur can probably do it!

Nope! While Fraps is idle (yellow number) you won't experience any loss of your precious performance!

When you are recording you might though. It all depends on game resolution, CPU speed, and harddrive speed I guess.

Hmm I can play in 1680x1080, and record in that resolution, but I think the FPS dropped below 30 last time I tried... 1440x900 works fine though~

Oh! A newer version of Fraps might be less laggy, but then you have to pay for it. Unless you are one of those pirates

I think Xfire does the recording and encoding at the same time using their own little modified codec, so it won't be portable (no one without Xfire installed can play it). Atleast it was like that last time I tried. Perhaps they've changed ;)

That's because it's flash, like youtube! I meant that someone without Xfire wouldn't be able to play the Xfire video file in VLC, Windows Media Player, or import it into video editors...

Someone records with Xfire, sends it to you with MSN for example, and you decide to watch it, but can't, because you need Xfire installed!
