    Fraps 3.1.2 on Build 7989


    I have noticed that when recoding with fraps on build 7989 does not exhibit problems with minimizing and resorting a game that is being recorded. I am recoding SAMP and minimizing while recoding would crash the game. Win 8 Beta this problem does not exist, allowing you to keep recording constantly.

    I have not fully tested this and am wondering if anyone else has tried fraps on win 8 yet?

    It's run very smoothly for me. My SSD had microstutters while recording in Win7 but that doesn't seem to exist here.
    Either it's a kernel thing, or just better performance.

    Frapping to an SSD ouch! i use striped WD500's.
    Out of curiosity I aimed fraps at my OCZ Agility 3 60GB and found that it did indeed shutter while recoding even in build 7989.
    what brand/size SSD are you using?

Running build 7989 Where are the new features?
When I first saw Windows 7 I thought, Oh boy.. it's Linux. I'm looking at Windows 8 and so far I'm thinking It's just like Windows 7. I expected something a little less windows 7ish. I wanted any new features exclusive to Windows 8 to jump out and grab me. I know this is a really early build but...
