I want to screen record TOMI, nothing works

posted by Dan2593 on - last edited - Viewed by 478 users
I have two screen recorders. Xfire and Wegame. Now these work with every game I own. I seen people have used Xfire to record there gameplay as some of it is on the Xfire site but for some reason Xfire and Tales do not get along.
It doesn't appear in my games list at all so I can't record it. I really want to use one so I can do a long overdue Tales Of Monkey Island EP: 1 review.

Does anybody know any good screen recorders I can get for free and work with Tales Of Monkey Island?

Or does anybody know how to add games to Xfire? Thanks.

  • Have you tried fraps?
  • E.F. Game Capture

    This is the one I used for my video.

    When you want games to "work" under Xfire, you will need to post that in their forum where people suggest games they want to have supported. They only recently added Secrets of Monkey Island: Special Edition. Once Xfire is updated with support for the game, you will have in-game support and you will be able to make screenies and videos with Xfire. Right now ToMI is not supported yet and so will not be recognised. That's with ALL new games and it takes a bit of time sometimes, before they're recognised/supported.

    If you want to make screenies, just hit Print Screen and go to an image editing program (MS Paint, Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, etc.) and paste it there. For video I'd suggest, as suggested before, Fraps.
  • I find recording modern PC games to be a little too much work. I bought Sam and Max on wii just to record it without confusion!
  • How is recording on the Wii easier than recording a game running on the PC?

    Through a DVD recorder presumably.
  • If you're using Vista or 7, you can press Ctrl+Prt Scr then minimize the game and open paint and paste the image. It's built into Windows.

    The Print Screen button should work whether you press the control button or not. I must admit I am using XP though, so I don't know if they changed it with Vista and 7.
  • I might have to go to Fraps. I refuse to shell out money for a screen recorder for a single game and I won't do screenshots as motion is more friendly on the viewer.

    Fraps it is.
  • Fraps worked fine for the entire game. No hiccup or anything at all during the entire let's play. :)
