    [GUIDE]How To Use Fraps

    Post  [GM]Primo on Sat Jan 26, 2013 2:09 am

    Have you saw Hacker?,SCAMMER Alert? Botting? Ok then, lets do something about it!
    This is a guide on how to get fraps a program to allow you to record video of the game!


    First thing you need the actual program Fraps. This program is free to use.Heres the step :-

    STEP 1 : Download & Install the free version of fraps
    Where can I get Fraps Free Version? : Click Me

    STEP 2: Now that you have it installed lets set it up.

    • 2.1 : There will be a fraps icon on your desktop double click it to open up fraps



    • 2.2 : Click the FPS (Frames Per Second) tab



    ~ What do the options do?

    The Overlay Display Hotkey lets you assign a button that will toggle the frame rate counter between the four corners and off. To change the Hotkey, click in the box and type a new key to be assigned this function. Clicking Disable will stop the Hotkey from having any effect.

    The Benchmarking Hotkey lets you assign a button that can be used to determine the average frame rate between any two points in a game. To change the Hotkey, click in the box and type a new key to be assigned this function. Clicking Disable will stop the Hotkey from having any effect.

    The overlay corner indicates the region of the screen that the framerate counter will be displayed in. Choose a corner that doesn't obstruct important information in the game's display. If you select Disabled the frame rate counter will not be displayed on screen.

    ~Selecting Only update overlay once a second will only change the frame rate counter once a second.

    ~Selecting Save frame rate to file each second will output the frame rate once a second to the file FRAPSSEC.TXT in your Fraps directory. This option is deprecated and has been removed in Fraps 2.7.0. Use the detailed FPS statistics option to get individual CSV files for each benchmark run.

    ~The Stop benchmark automatically option allows you to specify a fixed duration for the benchmark. Once the number of seconds has elapsed the benchmark will automatically stop and the results will be written to disk.

    Finally, detailed benchmark statistics can also be saved to disk. These are written in standard CSV files that can be imported directly into a spreadsheet. All files are automatically named/timestamped and saved in the benchmarks subdirectory. Currently there are 3 files written for each benchmark when this option is enabled:

    FPS - Contains the frame rate value for each second of the benchmark
    Frametimes - Contains the time (in milliseconds) of every frame that was rendered in the benchmark
    Minmaxavg - Contains the total frame count, benchmark duration, minimum, maximum, and average frame rate values.


    • 2.3 Next click the Movies tab notice C:\Fraps\Movie is the default.



    ~ What do the options do?

    You can select the folder where Fraps will store all movies in. By default this folder is the same as the directory you installed Fraps into, but you can customise it to save anywhere on your disk. Click the Change button to select a new folder, or the View button to show the current contents of the folder.

    The Video Capture Hotkey lets you assign a button that will record movies of the game. To change the Hotkey, click in the box and type a new key to be assigned this function. Clicking Disable will stop the Hotkey from having any effect.

    Choosing Half-size will store the movie at half the resolution of the game screen. Full-size will store the movie at the same resolution as the game screen.

    You can choose the frame rate of the output movie from 25fps, 30fps, 50fps, 60fps, or a custom value up to 100fps. Higher values result in smoother playback but will increase the file size. Some video editing programs will treat movies recorded at 25fps as PAL, and those captured at 29.97/30fps as NTSC.

    ~How do I record a movie while running a game?

    First select the target framerate for the movie, which indicates how many frames will be included in the movie each second. You can currently choose from 25, 30, 50 or 60 fps. In the game press the Video Capture Hotkey (F9) when you want to start recording. While recording the frame rate counter will turn RED. When you want to end your movie, press the button again to stop recording. You will now find the movie saved in your default folder.


    ~Why is the AVI movie generated by Fraps so big? How can I reduce the size?

    The filesize is big because there isnt enough time to encode the movie while the game is running. The movie frames are slightly compressed, but still require a large amount of disk space due to the high resolutions. After you have finished capturing you can convert the clips into a compressed format using a video editing program

    • 2.4 Click the screenshots tab



    ~What do the options do?

    You can select the folder where Fraps will store all screenshots in. By default this folder is the same as the directory you installed Fraps into, but you can customise it to save anywhere on your disk. Click the Change button to select a new folder, or the View button to show the current contents of the folder.

    The Screen Capture Hotkey lets you assign a button that will take a screenshot of the game screen. To change the Hotkey, click in the box and type a new key to be assigned this function. Clicking Disable will stop the Hotkey from having any effect.

    Screenshots can be saved in Windows Bitmap (BMP), JPEG (JPG), Portable Network Graphics (PNG), or Targa (TGA) format.

    Selecting Include frame rate overlay on screenshots will include the Fraps frame rate counter on your screenshots. If the frame rate overlay is disabled, no counter will be saved on your screenshots.

    Now what do you do with them once you have them

    For screenshots or you have to upload them to a site : Imageshack , Tinypic , or Photbucket
