Thanks, I tried Hatari on my mac but found too many conflicts & errors. Steem runs pretty much everything I want to run, especially demos. After so much energy & research trying to screen capture with the hardware I have available, I feel I need to either get a capture device or give up all together. I just can't afford any more time trying to get screen capture working so feel its better to just buy a game capture device, probably one with HDMI in so long as I can get a reliable VGA to HDMI converter.
I'm just hoping that if I get one, the resolution would be sized ok, as I've heard of capture devices which eg, take a composite signal but only work with certain consoles (works with snes, but not N64). I got close to capturing with virtualdub, but the recordings we'rent compatible with final edit (even tho it supports AVI) & the files we're turning out around 1GB for 20 seconds. I figured I'm better to buy one, then spend as much time as I have already trying to configure software in line with my OS & hardware. If I added up the hours I've spent, it'd be well over a week, where as if I'd spent £30, thats less than a days pay, it's really got to this point now.
I'm on the verge of a breakthrough with the music I've made & sprites ready to put into action, I just need this part working to start piecing it together. I'm sure a lot of people could relate, it's just becoming an ongoing task, when I could be using the time to create the visuals.
I've found a few which seem promising, this one records in 480p (640x480) at 60fps, so hopefully it will be everything I need, hoping there isn't anything I'm unaware of in the way Steem displays its images, which could result in a poor or inaccurate capture. Eg, the Elgato DH60 looks like it could work well...
