Default Might be a software issue...?

Hi everyone,

I've been trying to record gameplay using fraps and an emulator. I know that fraps doesn't recognize all emulators, but it does recognize the emulator I'm trying to record.

First thing's first: I'm not extremely tech savvy, but I have recorded smooth gameplay with fraps before (about a year and some change ago). This was on Zsnes (yes, I know that sounds silly, because so many people say that fraps doesnt recognize it). Additionaly, it cannot recognize it now for some odd reason. Moving on, I got snes9x, which fraps can record currently. So I started recording and immediately found that the gameplay was extremely choppy. At first I thought that it was just due to the recording factor and I could just deal with the slowness and still get smooth results, but upon viewing the final product, I saw the same thing I had experienced. I've tried google searches for the past 2 days and have not had fruitful results.

If it matters at all, my system specs are:
Intel Core Duo CPU 2.4 GHz

I'm not sure how to find out how much dedcated memory my graphics card has, but I think it's 512mb.

This could be due to settings in my emulator as well, or maybe I just have too many processes running? I just really don't know and was wondering if any of you have had similar problems, or an idea of what might be causing it.



**EDIT** I just tried recording project 64 and got 60 fps through the whole recording. Anyone else finding my issue weird?

Fraps likes to lag games, because its recording method is pretty silly. To be honest, I'd recommend just using another screen recorder. I use ZSNES and Camtasia Studio 8, and have no lag problems at all. Good luck~
