  • For windowed games (such as Minecraft), QuickTime does a good enough job, just drag around the gameplay window. It doesn't seem to impact framerate too much, although it doesn't have an overlay like Fraps so it's hard to tell.

  • In the Southern Shelf area there is a mini "fort" for lack of a better term next to the small bandit town (near the first Handsome Jack audio recording). Inside the bandit town there is a drawbridge that is up and a sign that says "scram". Drum music can be heard around this area. It appears to be the only way to access the adjacent "fort", but I can't figure out how to make the bridge drop so I can cross. I also can't find any reference to this area anywhere on the internet.

  • I try to record some of my games, such as Diablo III, DayZ and Planetside 2, where the gameplay can be pretty intense at times. I often end up having 3-4hr sessions and equal length videos. Lots of standard, uninteresting gameplay, and few intense highlights. I'd love to create 10-15 minute clips of the highlights of these sessions, especially in multiplayer where I play with friends. I almost... the entire video? I am using DXtory and FFsplit as capturing / recording software. Could be a tip or technique, mobile app, keyboard macro or annotator, anything that allows me to easily find interesting

  • I have a bunch of demos recorded in TF2 from before the Hatless update. Any attempt to open the files in TF2 for playback causes it to toss up a few resource loading errors that I'm assuming are the result of changes in the update, and the demo never loads. Really all I want from these files is the voice chat audio, the action on screen wasn't important. Is there any tool available that can extract that information independent from TF2 itself? On a similar note, for files that I can open, is there a way to make TF2 output just the audio track when recording playback using the startmovie
