Inspiration has struck once again, but this time, it isn't in the form of art... It's gaming. 

The Sims, to be exact. Gameplay, building, CAS... You see, it's the one thing I CAN do. Well enough, anyway. I know the game and it's mechanics very well (I've been playing it religiously in one form or another since elementary school), and I feel I have semblance of skill in terms of using it creatively and hopefully in a way that will entertain or help people get to know it better. Perhaps maybe even give me a chance to have enough courage to interact with some really cool people I've met through this awesome game. 

And thus leads me to the manhunt for a good quality, unrestricted screen recording software. (Oh, that also isn't laced with malware or "optional" toolbars)

I've been using CamStudio for most of my other projects, as it's free, relatively easy to use, and it's been recommended to me by several other LPers on YouTube. While I'm sure it works for them... No go for me. During the test, all I got was my cursor moving around on a black screen. Apparently CamStudio doesn't like DirectX-powered games like The Sims 3 unless they're in windowed mode, and that just won't work for me. So back to the interwebz I went. And came back with squat. 

After researching and inevitably turning to other, more experienced persons for help... I found a software that should work (I'm about to test it out with a sample lot). But it wasn't free. :/ TheSimSupply recommends XSplit, and others recommended Fraps. XSplit was about 15 bucks for a personal (unlimited), 3 month license that I can always renew... Fraps was 37 bucks... You can guess which one I went with, and even then I was almost considering to hell with the whole thing. So far, the interface is usable, nice looking (although that wasn't ever really a factor, it's still icing on the cake), and is supposed to be GREAT for full-screen game recording in high quality. Oh! And it didn't even ask me to install any "toolbars" or "plug-ins." Fingers crossed! I'll see how the test works, and if I post about a channel in the near future... You'll know it worked!

Thanks for adding me to your watchlist, Rachel. You should post more stuff! And regarding your scanner issues, you might try just taking a picture with a decent digital camera, and then playing around with the image when you upload it. That's what I did with "...More Dangerous..." and "The Cask of Amontillado". Maybe it wouldn't work as well with color...never tried it.
