Megalactic screenshots

So, yeah - it appears Megalactic (http://demozoo.org/productions/96484/) foils Fraps when attempting to do screenshots, and I get some weird artifacting on the lefthand side. Any good alternative screenshotting apps that anyone knows? :)

Does that do screenshots, though? I thought that was only for video.

Yes and no. It has a BMP writer, so you will just have to pick some screenshots out of thousands of frames. :)

Ouch. I think I'll look at other solutions. BMP writer is fine though, that's what fraps has too. I just mass-convert them with Irfanview to jpg.

Since I had troubles with Fraps alot (Codec, Recording to SSD) I switched to Dxtory (http://exkode.com/dxtory-features-en.html).
I could record video & take Screenshots without Problem. Uploaded some here: http://public.merde.me/Shui/Pictures/Megalactic%20Screens/

Shui: Oooh, excellent. Thanks for the tip. Feel free to upload the screenshots at the production page, or let me know otherwise and I will.

I'll get to it right now ;)

Ok I tried 4 times now and it won't let me upload that ammount of Pictures.
After some time it would give me a blank page with the url demozoo.org/productions/96484/add_screenshot/
(I'm using Firefox 26)

I made a zip with Screens I think are apropriate, maybe you can re-create the error: http://public.merde.me/Shui/Pictures/Megalactic%20Screens.zip

Just a side note: If you have an NVida GPU that is fairly new you can also use ShadowPlay:


Which might only be for video (haven't checked) but it's supposed to be really good and affect performance very little (as it uses hardware encoder) I haven't tried this myself but might be worth checking out.
