OSNews, Generic OSes First of all: the entire OSNews team would like to wish you a very merry Christmas. Even if you're not religious, there's always porn on the internet, right? Anywho, these wishes are a bit tardy, but that's because I've been fighting a battle with my computer the past few days trying to find a way to record Minecraft footage so I could make a Christmas wish from inside my creations - a losing battle, so it would seem. So, for Christmas, I have two OSNews Asks items for you to ponder. First, help me record Minecraft footage. Second, and this is of more practical use to myself and probably others as well, help me to set up an automatic backup solution that backs up the contents of one folder on an external hard drive to another external drive.

right click desktop, choose "Screen Resolution", then click the little "Advanced Settings" hyperlink thing (hard to notice), then click "Troublshoot" tab, then click "Change Settings" button.


Mine's ghosted, with a message stating that only if the driver supports it can you use the button. Odd.

Alternatively, you could set your screencapture program to capture just a region of the screen where minecraft is running and use Minecraft in "windowed" mode instead.


More weirdness: when recording in full screen, there's ZERO lag in Minecraft. When recording windowed (I already tried that), MUCH lag. Very odd.

Heh no it's not worth it - all I wanted to do was record some Christmas wishes inside Minecraft - just one lousy video. We can fly to the goddamn moon, but recording a game session NOOOO.
