I didnt know where to post this so bear with me, I just posted here becuase this is the one of few games id like to record. When I install GameCam, it ses a codec needs to be installed, fair enough. When it finishes installing it ses Codec installiton failed! Then i think oh well. But when I try to load the game it ses could not initalize codec, then it closes down. Fraps, Works ok, but when i use it ingame, I hit the record button, and my FPS dies literally, drops like by 50 or something. The game becomes laggy, i turn off record, it becomes fine. When I go to review my recordings, I get a horrible quality video with no sound, although ticking the box to record sound and high size video clip. Im guessing it's something to do with Vista/The codecs.

Recording a game with anything slows it down. As if running the game itself wasn't enough, the computer also has to record 60+ frames per second with sound and compress it at the same time. As for the codec problem, that could be because of Vista.

Different computers, different situations. Judging from your sig, your memory and gfx card are your problems. Especially the gfx card.

Even though my shitty family rig can run it fine and record? I was thinking the sound card was the problem, afterall it's some rubbish one that came with my comptuer

The sound card will not affect your video.

Honestly, the last thing i can say short of an upgrade is turn all your grafics settings in JA to the lowest they can go, and make sure you close every other program execpt JA and Fraps. Now, the way the people that make the cool movies you see use a different method. Check it out here, New Time Studios -> Movie Making with demos (in JKA) .
