I'm trying to record some Modern Warfare 2 footage for my youtube channel. I'm using Fraps (registered) to do the recording. Regularly, I run the game on max settings and get about 80FPS. When I first tried to record with Fraps, my framerate dropped to about 20FPS and below. I thought "Well maybe if I turn down my graphics settings". I did that, everything is now low - normal settings, I'm running the game at 100+ FPS, but again, when I try to record, it slows down my frames significantly, too choppy to play WELL, still about 25FPS.
yes this is not just that game only but also many games I also try for example->>crisis2,gta4,black ops,dead space 2,just cause 2,mafia 2,nfs shift 2 unleashed and etc!(eventually I later crash in gta4 lol)
well I will suggest U to run minimum processes in the background as u can!
I don't think this is the best answer!
I actually found a way to make it work, it just takes some getting used to when I play. I just changed the resolution from 1920x1080 to 1280x720. It's still HD, and I can run the game on High, good stuff!
