    fraps is old, no idea why people still use that program anymore. I don't think its been updated in over a year or more. Don't expect it to always work in newer games using newer mods.

    Like I said try using the sweetfx built in one. Check the injector.ini file for the key to take a screenshot. Hit it a couple of times in the area you want. ALT+TAB out of game and check to see if it worked.

    If I use print screen button, dxtory, afterburner to take screenshots neither show up sweetfx settings.

    The sweetfx effects do show up with the built in screenshot function but that's not a viable solution I don't want to get 30mo bmps...

    30MB!!!??

    WTF? I take screenshots using this and the max size I have seen is 10MB normally around 7-8MB.

    What resolution you at, I am at 1080p maybe its your resolution that is causing high file sizes.

    Also, you do know you can just open up those .bmp files in paint and them save them as .jpeg and the file sizes will be halved.

    EDIT:

    Actually just tested this with a few screenshots I took of Borderlands 2. The .bmp file that was created was 9.4MB I opened it up using paint, saved it to desktop as .jpeg and the file size didn't halve. It went down to 712Kb.

    I opened both .bmp and .jpeg up and put them side by side and whilst there was a slight difference in IQ it was barely noticeable.

    30 mo is for 4k, at 5k it's around 65. As I said it's not viable I take between 200 and 1000 screenshots per game and to this point I never had this problem with fraps it's probably tied to the game.

    Probably. Do what I did and try and open them up in paint and save them as .jpeg and see what file sizes you get doing that.

    It is a bitch to do with every photo and you do take a lot it seems. But it probably won't hurt doing it with just this one game :)

    I think you people trying to use SweetFX forget to turn off Afterburner/Xfire/OC Guru or any similar applications which inject ingame.
    Nvidia Shadowplay also breaks it so you need to uninstall GeForce Experience.

    afterburner does not conflict with sweetfx... RTSS does.

    I stand corrected, still I know that Shadowplay conflicts with Boulotaur's sweetfx.

    14 hours in and so far 27% overall completion. While the game is basically a hybrid of assassins creed and batman, I'm enjoying it very much. Its a good mix of stealth and combat which is essential to master especially when you're fighting 40+ orcs at once. The nemesis system is original and I can see future games copying it. Overall so far I'm glad I bought it on launch day and feel its easily worth the 50 bucks.

    Agreed.
    I grabbed it through GMG and used a coupon, only cost 35 bucks. But it is easily worth every penny. I'm about 8 hours in, at 15%... I find I'm spending more time exploring, doing the hunting and survival challenges.
    Side missions, stumbling upon random Orc and Uruc Captains.

    Monolith... while it may be a licensed title, it's good to see the quality is still there.

    Good game. I was pretty sad to find out most of the cut scenes are just movies.

    Ahh, finally I get an idea of how this game plays :D
    I still wasn't sure what to think of it, since I haven't read any reviews so far. I still have no idea who the protagonist is, but I guess that's what I'll see when I get the game with my new rig around christmas.

    Fastone image viewer will allow you to resize a whole folder with a few clicks.

    FRAPs was probably automatically resizing your pictures, maybe there is a setting for it? That would explain the file size difference.

    Can't the built in sweetfx screenshot tool be setup to save as different file types etc...?

    30MB is a somewhat typical file size for a raw uncompressed 4k screenshot.

    Great job to the Developers...

    Ironically, they look far better on PS4, which I was playing last night, simply because the game is also running at 1080p but, unlike the PC version, has some post-process AA which means there is a less jarring difference between the FMV cutscenes and the in-game graphics.

    You still have the problem of the cutscenes not showing the outfit (Dark Ranger one) you are wearing though but that is obviously something the developers did not consider when making this game. :bang:
