I made sure to record all approperate game screens, such as resetting the game to show it was a fresh start, and letting the continue timer run to 0 and reset after entering initials. I felt like especially since this is my first score submission, and I've just joined today this was especially important.

Maybe from now on I will setup a camera to record viewing the system and the TV rather then capture going forward. 

Quite possibly the worst setup you guys will hear of on here, so please if you have any suggestions let me know on how I can record better gameplay.

PC Used for Capture: Microsoft Surface 3 (Non-Pro)
Capture Device:  Diamond VC500
Software: Diamond Multimedia EZGRABBER
Format: MPEG4
System: Playstation 2
Game: Capcom Collection Vol 1 - Section Z
Settings: N/A (No option to change game settings)

@Ivanstorm1973:

Hey thanks so much! Next one attempt I'm going to try and film with the rear camera of the Surface 3 instead of the VC500.

It's wild, because as soon I hit record and know I'm filming it and going to submit it, my nerves start to get to me. Before the first death I was all over the place, soon as I died, I said to myself, "Okay, calm down and focus". Then I did much better laugh

It's the idea of being watched that puts the pressure on you for sure! Recording/Uploading is pretty simple, just having the tools that work properly is annoying. I was almost tempted to pull my rig out from my room and bring it in here so this awful Diamond VC would hopefully work a bit better.

There are some inexpensive one click USB capture devices out there that will work better at least, should check em out sometime!

Thanks for the welcome, I'm really excited about it. I really like this setup here smiley

Thanks so much Derek smiley It's funny because when I was watching the playback I kept thinking about how undisputibly perfect your recording was. And you just happened to be the one that inspired me to go for a score in Section Z!

Haha thanks, I use a dazzle (an old one) and a pirated version of debut recording software, there’s better stuff available but it gets the job done :)

You are splitting the signal from your console to your CPU and TV, right?

I've got the PS2 going into the TV and the TV's Video Out to the USB Capture device. Audio is going into a mixer and out of the mixer into the USB capture also. No noticeable lag when in the preview window on the computer, only after I view the recorded video do things not look so great.

@KMP:

The way I’ve got it setup is I split the PS2’s Yellow,red,and white video cable (actually I split the output from a 8 in 1 out Video box) with three wye connectors. One goes to the dazzle and the other to the TV, video signals are running simultaneously on my computer and TV. I have 8 consoles hooked up to the video hub box and it seems to work well, sound always seems to be in sync

My main issue is using a subpar computer for capture. Did a test run on my gaming rig with the VC500 recording and it was fine. 

Smart setup!

My TV has a total of 6 video inputs, with L/R inputs for audio on each, then a single video and L/R RCA output jacks. So I can run all my systems on one tv which is great, but to play through my receiver and speakers, I ran all the systems into an audio mixer to one input on the receiver. 

So much easier when I only have to change my video select :) Plus the receiver doesn't have enough inputs for all the systems.

Good enough for me.yes The score might be to small to clearly see but I'd be sweet to see that ps2 screen in action. I was going to give it a shot on my gamecube but the screen decided to get all screwed up.

@OriginalGamer: It's the best PS2 screen to get, the rest are awful. Even though the name makes it sound like it will be terrible. Joytech. It's an 8" LCD. That's terrible :( About your screen not working right. Hopefully it's not a Joytech/Hori PS2 screen situation and harder to find then birds teeth.. Yeah the score is difficult to see with such a tiny screen. I've got things setup to film my scores the way you do now ^_^

@BrandonGuerra97: Yeah that video was all kinds of screwed up. One score I did, I think 2 below this one that scoreboard the audio was so messed up that if I watched it from someone else I would of said "they are using some kinda rapid fire". Ive moved on from bad screencap software. Doing it right now :)
