Welcome to page 10.

To record a video you need one of the latest work in progress builds of ZSNES. Get them here: http://zsnes.ipherswipsite.com/

You will need a copy of mencoder. For Windows users, I recommend getting mencoder here: http://oss.netfarm.it/mplayer-win32.php
Place mencoder.exe in the same location as zsnesw.exe, you do not need any codecs or other movie programs installed.
Linux users, having mencoder in your path is fine.

If you want to compress the outputted audio, or compress it before it goes into the video as opposed to during, you will need a copy of LAME.
If you use Windows, you must get LAME from here: http://geocities.com/joecool22us/lame.zip
Any other copy of LAME for Windows will not work due to a bug in LAME.

Before you are able to dump an AVI, you must have recorded a movie first, it converts movies, it does not just dump video on the fly.

To play back movies, you'll either need the proper codecs or a video player with built in decoding of the video mode you selected.
I recommend getting mplayer which decodes anything created with mencoder. For Windows, you can get mplayer here: http://oss.netfarm.it/mplayer-win32.php You can download the GUI version.

Advanced users can edit zmovie.cfg and tweak the settings if they want, and even use something other than mencoder and LAME as long as it supports encoding via stdin and you set it up properly.

What you want me to rerecord a few thousand times to have flawless gameplay?

In some games I think it would be pretty hard for me to get any better :P
And I don't know if you realize it, but that Buzzy Beetle move for example requires immpecable timing to get it right.

On a good night, I can beat SMB pretty close to the world record.

The Buzzy Beetle is much harder to do than the Koopas in 3-1.

I can do the Koopa extra life stomp in one try no problem.
The Buzzy Beetle thing needs a few practice runs before I can get it right.

Tomasz420, you should bother to download the stuff yourself.

With that said, you should do the following:

Download one of the more recent WIPs (Works in Progress) from http://zsnes.ipherswipsite.com

Then you download mencoder from this link:
http://oss.netfarm.it/mplayer-win32.php

Then you download LAME from this link:
http://nsrt.edgeemu.com/lame.zip

Once you download mencoder and LAME, copy the main executables to the folder ZSNES is in (finding what the main executables should be fairly obvious).

Once you do that.. learn to use the movie feature in ZSNES. Use the ZSNES documentation for reference http://zsnes-docs.sourceforge.net/

Also note.. spelling ZSNES wrong will get the board's filter on your case.

Edit: Updated with links

This thread has all the info you need. Read it.
Links to ZSNES builds with support is in this thread. Links to mencoder and LAME is in this thread.

And BTW, if you get LAME for Windows anywhere but from the link in this thread, it won't work. Google will not help you.

the problem is that this thread is ten pages long. if the first post was edited, then i can see "read the thread" as viable.

I've read all 10 pages at least a dozen times, and I already know the entire contents, what's your excuse?
We all know the info is contained in the thread, 10 pages isn't that bad, especially considering 3 of the 10 pages have links and valuable info.

That we are not as obsessive as you are to bother reading 10 pages long threads to find a single answer ;P

Mplayer includes mencoder.. but ZSNES only needs mencoder, not mplayer to record movies.

Hi guys, I just got mencoder set up with ZSNES on my laptop, and it's working brilliantly.
I just thought I'd share a little something with any DKC fans out there. It's short, but interesting!

Dig it.

Yes. You can barrel-roll from a tree above to land on the box without breaking it. Now get the 6-up balloon at the end of the stage.

There's a slight problem I found with the latest version of mencoder. After I upgraded to the Mar 23, 2006 build, I can't choose the x264 lossless option to record. If I do, I won't get a picture while playing the video file. However, choosing xvid lossless will work. This never happened to me before so I was wondering if this affected other users.

Well, I guess I missed reading that. :oops: Thanks!
