What game are you talking about exactly? Most games tend to have their own demo managers, in which you can create a demo file. From there, you can usually find utilities to turn that demo into a sequence of images (BMP, TGA, JPG (lossy though)), which you can then turn into a video.

Unreal Tournament is a great example of this. You simply record a demo either from the system console, or via Demo Manager (separate umod addon), then use MovieUnreal to do the capturing for you.

I'm not sure exactly what type of video you are looking for, but most people making movies out of games, (like mmo's and stuff) just record their 'tv out' to a VCR while playing, and then encode the tape on their computer later (otherwise it'd cause slow downs)

edit; I must not be awake yet.

Why do you keep bumping, you have your answer. Hook the tv out of your video card to a vcr and record. Then dump it back into digital format. For better quality, record on a DV camera instead of a vcr. The reason you can''t find a program to do this is obvious, it takes a lot of resources to run a game and it takes a lot of resources to capture video at a decent frame rate in software. The two can not be running at the same time, hence you pipe it out from the video card.

ok well i''m looking for a program here and if I liked what I saw before I wouldn''t keep bumping this, did you ever stop to think about that? I could care less how slow is goes as long as it can get 10-15 frames per sec, then its all good.

I can''t believe they actually charge for a beta test account =]

Although at least they are honest.. most newer releases ala Shadowbane, SWG, etc have released the gold game in pure beta form with a million bugs, etc... and change a lot more than priston does =]

Don't ever ask for help on bypassing security issues for something illegal on these boards again. Be you, a beta tester or not, it doesn't mean that you own the rights to the game.

Open beta doesn't mean open source. Now, if the cd is protected there probably is a reason for it. Don't you think? You'd be better off trying that question somewhere else, like IRC in UNDERNET somewhere.

One other thing, do not disrespect older members of GDNet when you ask a question. As for bumping, if your question dies, it's probably because people tend to think that it's not worth answering so you can stop bumping!

ok cyber first off cool it!!! who ever siad i was trying to get pass cd protect or bypassing security on a cd , the game doesn't even run off a cd! the protect it has it to protect is from people who use skin hacks and so on. Now look "Camtasia Studio" a video capture program works just fine! just it give 1 frame per second and "FRAPS" another video capture program just dont work on it at all so how am i doing anything illegal or posting anything illegal??? So before blowing up, try getting your facts straight before you post. And as for bumping the post, the right people are not always on at the same time as i am to see the post! and thx! i will check out IRC in UNDERNET and i'm not disrespecting older members of GDNet i'm only trying to get an answer which never seems to get answered...
