View Full Version : Can I record my online fights?

I`m a newbie and get blasted out of the sky pretty quickly. If i could see what happened i might last longer. I note there is a record facility in the offline game - does this work online and how?

There are two ways:

Quick Recording: I think it's set to F12 by default, just hit it to start recording, and hit it again to stop. The quick command gives it a name such as quick0001.ntrk

Otherwise, you can try

Regular Recording: Hit Esc while in the plane and hit "Start Recording Track," and then resume flying.

The regular record command allows you to specify a file name in advance, such as "na85 gets pwned by a P51.ntrk" or similar.

Yes you can. Not sure if you have to assign a key or if it's built in as default. I use Q to record the mayhem.

Welcome aboard Duff!!

Yes, i believe the default key is "Q", press it again to stop record, it will be saved as a .TRK or .NTRK file. Or you can use the Fraps (http://www.fraps.com/)utility.

Note that you have to actually begin the recording manually, unlike playing campaigns where you can just hit "save replay" after you die.

with the ingamge record you can jump around planes when you watch the recorded.
with fraps you can only see what you saw when you recorded it.

I have mine set to Ctrl-R. This seemed like a good idea. Turns out, maybe it isn't.

Awhile ago, I was winging with a buddy, both of us in Tempests. We get jumped by a 262 and a Dora. Both miss on their first passes, and the fight commences.

Wingman: I'm draggin the 262 downward and to my left.

Me: Roger that, diving on him now.

Wingman: Watch that Dora, he's looping out to the east.

Me: Roger. This could get interesting.

Hmmm, I thought, this COULD get interesting. Better hit record.

Wingman: How soon till you fire on this guy? He's closing fa - What the hell!? WHY THE #@#$!@ DID YOU BAIL OUT???!

Me: Uh.... it was an accident. Srry! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Wingman: How the @#$$%!@ do you #@$#$ hit Ctrl-E on ACCIDENT? Great. Just great.

Then the 262 asploded him with extreme prejudice.
