Hi there, Howler's the name!
Now that it's possible, I'd like to speak my thanks to Qbix for creating DOSBox and VDMSound--both programs that have served me very well over the years--at no cost even!
I apologize if asking for help on post number one is looked down upon here (and a slight bump to boot!), but I'm hard-pressed to find a solution to a problem that is very similar to the one in this thread, and have had no success trying to resolve it up to this point. If it's something isolated enough to warrant it's own thread, then let it be.
Anyway, I can record DOSBox video using the built-in recorder without issue, but I want something a bit more optimal for high resolutions.
I'm grabbing footage for System Shock, which supports high(er) resolutions, and I want to make use of them if possible. But even tested on an Intel I7, running with an SSD (so data writing speed shouldn't be the issue) the best I can capture is 320x400 30FPS.
Essentially, there's 3 ways I could go about it, but I need some input for 2 of them:
1.) If I can somehow capture compressed footage with Dosbox's built in recorder... I don't think this is possible, but people here would know better than I.
2.) If there is a way to capture the Windows XP command prompt, then I could get the performance I really want, but as far as I've tried, it seems impossible. If anybody knows about some old-ass program or way to trick the command prompt into displaying D3D, OpenGL, or windowed mode, that's probably all I need, but that's hinging on anybody actually dealing with the command prompt anymore. 😜
3.) I could just forget about it, record the native resolution (for that old-school feel, that's what I'll tell 'em!), and wish you all a nice day. 😀
This game really needs a source port, namely because it just flat-out deserves it, but also because if it had one, I'd have no issue at all!
Anyway, thanks for reading, sorry if the info I'm looking for is already somewhere here in the site... and have good times everybody.
Edit: and you can bet I'll force whatever I need to into 4:3!
