    1. Gamma to around 70 and above
    2. Make sure all sounds are put to the max, adjust the sound level by using the master volume control in windows

    Dxtory - Recording using Dxtory (Highly recommended, Good video quality and good for fast PC)

    Bandicam - Recording using Bandicam (Medium video quality but good for slow PC)

    Fraps - Recording using Fraps (Best video quality but may be blocked by Gamegaurd)

    Programs that you will need:
    Dxtory
    Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0

    Steps:

    1. Download and Install Dxtory
    2. Launch Dxtory
    3. Please do check these settings:

    Dxtory Overlay Setting
    This panel tells you what color is recording and which is not recording. You can change the color if you want.

    Dxtory Folder Setting

    Click on the icon with the small green "+" to add a directory to where you want to save your recorded videos.
    Right click the above indicated box and follow on to the next screenshot.


    First, you have to edit your Folder Path.

    Set it to the folder you want your videos to be saved into and click "OK".

    Dxtory Hotkey Setting
    This panel allows you to configure which button you want to press to start recording and stop recording.

    Dxtory Movie Setting
    *VERY IMPORTANT*
    Make sure that you are using "Dxtory Video Codec".
    Change your Frame Rate to "90" or "60".
    Set your Scaling to "50%".

    Dxtory Audio Setting
    Make sure your Audio Device is set to what you are using. Usually it will be "Speakers".
    Make sure you choose "PCM" as your audio codec so that you will have less trouble in editing the videos.
    (If you choose other codec, you may not be able to have sound in your video when you edit it.

    Steps:

    1. Download and Install Bandicam
    2. Launch Bandicam
    3. Please do check these settings:

    Bandicam General Setting
    Click on the box to set the folder to where you want your videos to be saved to

    Bandicam FPS Setting
    Make sure that you settings are the same as screenshot and untick the "Only when capture" box.

    Bandicam Video Setting

    Set your preferred Record hotkey and click on settings.

    Set the following as shown in the screenshot.


    When you press your Video Capture Hotkey, in my case it is "Num 8", the number will turn Red. This shows that your Fraps is recording.


    Press on your Video Capture Hotkey again to stop recording.

    Steps:

    1. Download and Install Fraps
    2. Launch Fraps
    3. Please do check these settings:

    Fraps General Settings
    Start Fraps minimzed - When ticked, Fraps will not show up on your screen but minimized to your taskbar
    Fraos window always on top - When ticked, Fraps will always be on top of other windows
    Run Fraps when Windows starts - Whec ticked, Fraps will automatically start up when you on your PC.

    Monitor Aero destop (DWM) - When ticked, Fraps will be recording your desktop screen instead of your ingame screen. (Useful when you want to record your desktop instead)
    Minimize to system tray only - When ticked, Fraps will be minimized to your Taskbar when your close it instead of exiting the program.

    Fraps FPS Settings
    Benchmarking Hotkey - Click "Disable" to disable it so that you do not accidentally start Fraps to benchmarking mode.
    Overlay Hotkey - Click "Disable". This option turns on/off the number on the top left of your screen. It is best to leave it on.

    Fraps Movies Settings
    Video Capture Hotkey - Change it to a key which you prefer. In this case, I prefer to use the numpad's "Num 8".
    Video Capture Settings - Select 60 fps + half-size

    Fraps Screenshots Settings
    Screen Capture hotkey - Change it to a key which you prefer. In this case, I prefer to use the numpad's "Num 9".

    4. Once you have done these settings, Launch blackshot and your Lobby should have Yellow numbers on the top left corner of your screen.

    5. Go into a game and the number on your top left should be Yellow. This shows that your Fraps is NOT recording.

    When you press your Video Capture Hotkey, in my case it is "Num 8", the number will turn Red. This shows that your Fraps is recording.

    Press on your Video Capture Hotkey again to stop recording.
