FRAPS is fine unless your computer is a bucket of shit. The only issue was HDD space with continuous recording. With large drives these days, that's not an issue either. ? You should only record at or a multiple of the frame rate you're going to encode at. Since that will either be 30, 25 or 24 fps, it doesn't matter. Further, because the engine in BF2 is shit, you're not going to get CGI type rendered smoothness anyway. A modern computer (note not one built when BF2 was new) will cope perfectly well. Depends on what it is you're doing. If you're recording from BRs, then you could use battledirector. Just recording live gameplay I'd stick with FRAPS.
