'Sup fellas. I’m in need of some help. Recently I’ve been attempting to create a couple of “arcade/console” comparison videos for a couple of Neo games, namely the original “World Heroes”, “Fatal Fury Special”, and “Samurai Shodown”. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not asking for the “games” as I have all of the “games” necessary that I intend to make the videos out of (the original Neo versions, and the various Genesis/SNES/Sega CD ports), but I’ve hit a roadblock as far as getting to record them and then putting the video together for YouTube, etc. consumption.
I have a pathethically archaic PC (1.6 Ghz P4, 640 MB DDR SDRAM, 16 MB ATi Rage 128 Pro, Integrated Sound) that almost screeches to a halt when using video recording/capturing programs such as FRAPS, Camtasia, ZD Soft Game Recorder and the like. I’ve attempted to record emulator gameplay footage with them, but even with the lowest settings on the programs and the emus itself, the frame rate and video quality is abysmal.
Recently though I’ve been indulging in several emulators’ recording options. specifically ZSNES which not only has input recording options (as most good emus do), but video dumping/conversion options as well. From my brief trials, I can say that ZSNES’s dumping/conversion feature is GREAT and much less complicated than messing with video capturing programs.
With that said, does anybody know of any Genesis/Neo-Geo emulators that not only record input movies, but are also able to dump these input movies into AVI or a viewable format? I’d really like to showcase the rather obscure Genesis/Sega CD ports of “World Heroes”, “Fatal Fury Special” and “Samurai Shodown” alongside the other versions/ports.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
