Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Record movie from inside a packaged game.

Hello mate, as the title suggest, i want to ask that is it possible to record movie from inside a package game? And is it possible to do something like the kill cam in Call Of Duty, where you can see how you died and stuff for a short amount of time and then we can saved that movie to a hard drive? Of all the search result that turn up, i find most of them are instruction about how to use matinee from editor, and only this one question that is manage to come close to my requirement:

I am thinking about taking a bunch of screenshot, then write a small c++ dll to make a movie from all of those .bmp files. But i think this is more like a hack than a proper solution.

New problem, it seem like i can't load bitmap created by command Shot, if i create a bitmap with paint then load it with LoadImage function, it work fine, but too bad i can't say the same about bitmap made by unreal.
Also, it maybe not relate but when i try to use ACDSee Photo manager 2009 to view bitmap files made by unreal, i can only see a dark screen, while using Window photo viewer there isn't any problem. If i use a bitmap made by paint or some source other than unreal, both those program can display the bitmap just fine.

Hello mates, i got good new and bad new. The good new is by following this instruction how to link static and this instruction how to capture screen using DirectX libraries, i have managed to capture and create a huge avi video file. And by huge, i mean it. And that is the bad new. I haven't figure out how to use video codec from inside unreal, so the result video file is big and some how the frame are mess up.
