Video Capture

Post by BDZ » Sun Jan 18, 2009 10:57 pm

Does anyone know of a good, free video capture program that works with DOS programs? I'm running Windows XP and my QuickBASIC game only runs fullscreen. Any suggestions?

A screenshot is possible in QB.

Let me know if that is what you need. I can give code for DOS legacy Screens 9, 12 and 13.

First of all, Burger, this question is in the appropriate discussion forum. It is not news about Pete's QB Site. It is not News or Announcements. It is not a Question or Answer about QuickBASIC or FreeBASIC; I was asking if anyone knew of a free video capture program that runs under Windows but at the same time can capture video from fullscreen DOS programs.

Anyway, thanks for your offer for screenshot code. I borrowed some of the BMP generation code that you posted for the other guy a few days ago for a small program. :D

You happy........I happy! I have a program called PrintKey, but it cannot grab fullscreen DOS either. No matter where you post your question. :lol:
