It would be cool if I could get Fraps on my USB drive, so I can test my fps, etc. on the go.

Here's the site www.fraps.com

( categories: )

Fraps is not open source and requires admin rights

Those two features make it unacceptable for PA.c.

This does not mean it can't be run from a USB. Use something like Sandboxie to see if installing it to your flash drive requires it to save files into a user application folder. Also, tools like RegSnap allow you to see if any changes are made by the program to the registry after closing the program. I do not know, but I believe that Fraps installs a driver which monitors your graphics card, which might not work well from computer to computer.

Also, welcome to PA.c.

Limits are for people with no imagination.

Not only no OSS

It's payware

Eiñ??? A siñature????


Thanks auqi. What is sandboxie? I have never heard of it.

FRAPS requires Start Menu Folder


After reading this page, I wanted to try Sandboxie (very interesting discovery).
I did not have to wait too long. During FRAPS installation you must choose a Start Menu Folder and you can't choose not to create one. CCl°: it's not portable-friendly.

a+, =)

Configuration :
Windows Seven x64 Ultimate
Sandboxie v3.50 x64
Fraps v3.2.7
