well, I used X-Fires built in video recorder to record a battle between my 1st Fleet and a moderate sized Tarkan Attack Wing.

Its flippin' huge (2.9GB) I should get and use Fraps, but I honestly didn't mean to start recording, once it was going, I figured, Meh. Why not.


I suffered 2 Armored Cruisers heavily damaged, 1 CnC cruiser moderately damaged.

BB/Armor/F-Node Fusion, HCL, Medium AP Drivers, laser PD. "Agamemnon Class"

Vs.

Lots of missile slewing Basic HH / Armor / Fusion Cruisers, 1 assault snuck in there, maybe two. Either way, I killed 16 Cruisers and 3 Destroyers.

Overall Damage:

HCL: 14k APMD: 134k
Miss: 15k Other: ~8k (lasers, torps)

Not sure what I'm doing with the video, or even if will work, but its encoding, so it will take some time. Another 10-15. I'm assuming the rest of the steps are self explanatory?

No sound. Very sad that. It starts just after the two forces did a head on pass. I tried to stay close to the action, since the AI was fielding mostly missile cruisers during the last battle, and I had knife fighters I figured my advantage was pretty much insurmountable for the AI.


It was.

uploading now.
:)


[edit: forgot how much detail you loose without the full sized picture as well. next time, I'll just to following an enemy cruiser or just fly around free camera. oh well. its still sorta nifty]

You might try checking that box and see if it has any effect on the videos. I've never used the video capture below, but that seems as if it should give you some sound with the videos.

Don't worry overly about the size, X-fire gets them encoded automaticly when you upload them (takes a little time), and spits out some more upload friendly sizes before it actualy uploads them.

hey slash, what settings do you use for FPS, and do you use the full size check box or the half size check box?

30 fps, half size, capture cursor on.
And set to record "wave" in the audiomixer. That catches all the games sound and music.

well, recorded two more. set it to 60 FPS, half size, and my audio was set to "what U hear" since Wave wasn't an option (didn't appear on my list)

- as expected, it recorded the music I was playing via winamp as well as the in game sound.


SUCKERS - You all have to listen to the Rusted Root album I was listening to while playing. :P

April Fools @ X-Fire. They dropped a WMD(h) Weapon of Mass David (hasselhoff).


Morbid and Creepifyin' but funny. And since your eyes are already bleeding, you might as well destroy your ears as well. Watch a video. :thumbsup:
