Fraps 2.9.0 out, DX10 and Vista support

And just about everything else

| Posted: Jul 11, 2007 11:47 am

The latest version of Fraps has just been announced and version 2.9.0 not only adds Vista and DirectX 10 support, but it also features a host of bug fixes and new features. If you're not familiar with Fraps, then you've missed out on an excellent piece of software. It allows you to record video and audio from within games and you can also take screen shots with it. As if this wasn't enough, it also has a built in frame counter for games that don't have this built in.


The latest version has now been updated to add all this great functionality to Vista and as an added bonus, thanks to the new audio subsystem of Vista, Fraps can now record sound directly from a sound stream without needing hardware support. This allows for in game audio capture, even with audio devices that doesn't normally allow for this.


Another new cool addition is the ability to capture screenshots and record video from the Vista desktop thanks to the fact that Aero is using DirectX. Some of the new fixes include screen tearing in some DX9 game video captures, improved resource sharing with multithreaded games and loads of little bug fixes that caused Fraps to crash. Owners of the Logitech G15 keyboard will also be happy to know that it will work properly with Fraps under Vista.


You can get the latest version from Fraps themselves.
