There was a time when just kids were fond of the games, but today the gaming technology has reached to far from our imagination the real-world gaming experience. Now more adult peoples are involve in gaming than children. There are more strategically/logical/adventures games are there and people loves to share their gameplay techniques. This tutorial will give all great tips on how you can record any of gameplay with high quality and share them online.
There are about three top leaders in record gameplay in highest available quality are: Fraps, Dxtory, Bandicam. But Fraps is the one the require minimum configuration to do and can easily able to record gameplay in HD quality. In previous article I told you how you can record movies with Fraps but it rocks when recording gameplays. You can check out the gameplay movie I recorded with Fraps here https://vimeo.com/75310586
Now let's follow the steps below on how you can record the gameplays of your favorite:
STEP ONE: RUN YOUR FAVORITE GAME
You can run your game if it's shortcut icon available on the desktop or you can run it through:
|I) Start Menu > All Programs > and scroll to your game program.|
STEP TWO: RUN FRAPS
Now as you're in the gameplay and run Fraps you need to minimize the game, and I usually try to do this by pressing Windows Key + Desktop to go to desktop or simply press Ctrl+Shift+Esc. and run Fraps from Desktop Shortcut Icon or Start Menu.
II) Start Menu > All Programs > 'Fraps' folder > Fraps program
STEP THREE: CONFIGURE FRAPS PROGRAM
Now you need to do a little steps of configuration:
I) Click on 'FPS' tab and select 'Hide Overlay' option button because I know you don't want to keep seeing the FPS benchmarking while gameplay.
II) Set a Hotkey to capture the gameplay by going to 'MOVIES' tab and under 'Video Capture Hotkey' set the hotkey. I just set Shift+F7 key here.
FINAL STEP: LET'S RECORD THE FAVORITE GAMEPLAY
You're ready to record the gameplay and let's go back to the gameplay we minimized and just press the 'Video Capture Hotkey' Shift+F7 whenever you want to start gameplay record. When you want to stop gameplay recording just press 'Shift+F7' again and the gameplay recording will be finished.
One thing I forgot to tell you that Fraps eats lots of your hard drive that’s why you need lots of hard drive space for recording gameplay for long-time, and possible you may see some lag for long recoding but don’t worry I share some tips to get rid of lags forever in any recoding of gameplay just keep in touch and le't’s enjoy recording favorite moments of your gameplay and sharing online to help people how to clear all the stages of the game :)
