Feel free to reply here and let us know of any additional tutorials or tutorial sites that are out there in the wild that we do not know about.

Also, feel free to post any requests for tutorials. I will try to keep a compiled collection of requests on the 2nd post. Bare in mind that requests are generally for ANYONE to complete...not specific to an individual.

List of requested tutorials (number on the end is how many times it has been requested)

Some people are reporting issues with Taksi giving black screen or audio problems with recorded video. The audio issue might be sorted out by installing the free AC3 audio decoder and processor filter. It is also recommended to run Taksi first and then the game you want to record.

___________________________________________________________________________

Tips from the Taksi User Manual (author has not yet updated it to correspond to the latest version):

Usage:

1. Run taksi.exe
2. Run a game that uses one of the supported APIs (DX8, DX9 or OpenGL)
(The order of these two steps is not important for taksi. It should be
able to hook on the game in either case.)
3. Look at left top corner of the screen.
If you see a green rectangle in there, then Taksi was able to sucessfully hook on the game.

Default keys

F5: Turn visual indicator ON/OFF.
F6: Toggle system-wide hook mode. When ON (indicator turns blue), allows
for mapping into multiple applications, but may have a strong negative
effect on the overall performance of the system. Recommended state: OFF.
(The hot-key is disabled, when Taksi uses DirectInput for keyboard
handling.)
F7: Small screenshot (WIDTH/2 x HEIGHT/2).
F8: Regular screenshot (WIDTH x HEIGHT).
ScrollLock: Video capture ON/OFF (Writes an uncompressed AVI-file).
(Dimensions of the video are WIDTH/2 x HEIGHT/2.)
