Not sure if this goes here or not, it's a Freespace Open Problem, but is caused by or related to FRAPS use.
Aside from a massive framerate drop (often goes down to single digit FPS) and associated jerkiness, which I suspect is just a case of me needing to edit my detail settings, whenever I start recording with FRAPS the 2D elements get skewed. It happens to briefing icons, the hangar bay doors (ie. menu items), and if I open the settings window the buttons there go wonky too along with the dialogue box buttons. If I open a menu while in space, when I close the menu the HUD also ends up out of whack. I am currently running the latest version of FSO and am having this issue with the Media VPs as well as FSPort. At the moment I am using the free version of Fraps because I don't want to pay for something that isn't going to work, so I am not going to buy it unless I can get it to work.
If anyone can help me get fraps to work, or suggest an alternative to fraps that will work, it will be appreciated.
My current system is a Toshiba Satelite L505D with:
Athalon II Dual core M300 (2.00 GHz)
2.75 (Usable) memory
ATI mobility Radeon HD 4200
Let me know if theres anything else I should post. Since FSO uses open GL I figured a DXdiag would be useless, but is there an OpenGL equivalen?
