How to make a QuakeWorld video

Monday 25th December, 2006 | Skip to comments (9)

First of all you need EzQuake to pull this off.

- Download ezQuake
- Download Xvid


demo_capture_codec “xvid”
demo_capture_dir “movies”
demo_capture_fps “25″
demo_capture_mp3 “0″
bind z “demo_capture start 30 name.avi”
bind x “demo_capture stop”

Now you can start playing the demo and demo_jump to the right time. Press the button ā€œzā€ and it will record for 30 seconds. If you want it to stop sooner just press ā€œxā€.

The avi is located in Quake\Movies\.

Now go to here and upload your movie!

* if you get tabbed out to windows, its because of the xvid settings. We can fix this by following these 2 steps:

  • Go to “start”, click “run” copy + paste this line below
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe xvidvfw.dll,Configure
  • Then click “other options” and unclick the “display encoding status” (located at the bottom)

It should be mentioned that demo_capture only works on Windows... So the links at the top for Linux/MacOS is kinda redundant.

the program fraps is also nice and easy, maybe ppl who had problems with this would like to try fraps.

if you get a bunch of .tgas this works flawlessly;
mencoder mf://*.tga -mf w=800:h=600:fps=25:type=tga -ovc copy -oac copy -o output.avi

mushi, fraps is a bad thing! ezquake has a perfect capturing-possibility, stick to it!

... the ezquake (1.9.2) says that mac users can use the demo_capture command, but im having issues.

/demo_capture 10 video.avi
