Are your getting kill stealers , harassers,or people luring monsters on to you?
Have you saw someone doing speed hacks,botting, or using exploits?
Ok then lets do something about it
This is a basic guide on how to get fraps a program to allow you to record video of the game.and what to do with it.
there are other types of software to record game video but fraps is what Im familiar with so thats what my guide is about if someone else would like to add a guide to different software or make another post thats good the more tools people have the better.
If someone would like to add anything feel free this is a long post and I may forget something.even if its just to tell me I misspelled something
So lets get started
STEP 1: down load the free version of fraps(allows you to record 30 seconds of video)plenty of time to catch someon in the act
1a. Goto http://fraps.com/
1b. Click the download tab
1c. Click<Download FRAPS 2.9.1 Setup (952k)
1d. When the download box pops up click run
1f. It will download the execute program and another box pops up asking if you want to run the software click<run>
1g. The license agreement pop up click <agree>
1h. Another box comes up asking about the destination folder the default is c/fraps you can change it or leave it as default click <next> to continue
1i. another box comes up showing the default start menu folder click<install>
1j. A box comes up with text in it as it installs once its done it will say completed at the bottom of the text .Close that box and you have installed fraps you will now have an icon on your desktop
STEP2 Now that you have it installed lets set it up .There are detailed instructions on the fraps website. Once you have it open there is a red help tab in the bottom right corner to click anytime you need help you can use this feature to learn the more advanced settings for now we will just go thru the basics so you can record.
2a. There will be a fraps icon on your desktop double click it to open up fraps
2b. Click the <fps> tab you'll see overlay display hotkey and benchmarking hotkey with a blue dissable tab beside each click them both to dissable
2c. Next click the movies tab notice c:\fraps is the default.
I prefer to make a folder on desktop and change it to that so i can get to it quicker,
If you want to change it click the blue change tab it will bring up a box you simply find the folder you want to put the video in click it to highlight it and click ok.
Ok now set the video capture hotkey I use f12 just click in the box under video capture hotkey and hit the key you want to use make sure you pick a key that you dont use in the game.
STEP 3 Click the screenshots tab(its prety much the same as the video)
Iblacked out my destination folder it has my name on it.
3a. You'll see "folder to save screenshots in" with the blue change tab you can make a desktop folder or leave it at the default
3b. Set your hot key same way as the movie section again choose a key you dont use in the game I use f11
3c. Below the screen capture hotkey you can click a box to repeat screen capture every so many seconds untill you hit the hot key again just click the box and set the number of seconds in between shots
STEP 4 How to take screenshots and record video
4a.You start up fraps
4b.Enter the game in FULL SCREEN
you will see yellow numbers in the corner of the screen as you play
4c.Hit the hotkey for screenshots to take a pic
4d.Hit the hot key for video to start video the numbers will turn red .Hit the hot key again to stop video if you didnt get what you were trying to kust hit the hotkey again and take another video
Your video and screen shots will be saved in the default folder previously mentioned
Those are the basics. All you need to capture video or take screenshots with fraps if you want to know the more about the advanced features just click the red help tab in the lower right corner p
Now what do you do with them once you have them
Ok for screenshots or you have to upload them to a site like http://www.tinypic.com/
For video use http://www.youtube.com/, http://www.tinypic.com/
. You may have to edit the video for size and quality so I added another guide in a post below.
You have to sign up for an account for youtube and photobucket
once uploaded you will get links to put in forums posts and emails .
5. Ok now you have video what should you do?
5a.First thing is ask for a GM or GS in the shoutbox let them know you have someone violating the rules also tell them the IGN of the violator (make sure you have the name Exactly right capital letters count thats where a screenshot come in handy for a refrence),server group ,sub server,coordinates, and what map you were in.
they maybe able to observe the problem and resolve it without uploading the video but youll have it for backup
5b.You can send an email thru the contact us at the bottom of any last chaos website page .
Include all the information just as step 5a.
5c.You can make a post in the forums include all the information just as step 5a.
So now your ready to catch a cheater,harasser,ect or even learn the advanced aspects of FRAPS to make game movies
I hope this guide helps.This is my first guide so be kind and let me know if you see anything that needs an edit.
