When a demo is recorded in JA, its saved as a .dm_26 file. What program is used to open such a file?

It's run by the JKA game. Something like /playdemo demofilename.

Thank you.:)

However, I notice that people release "movies" that are JA recorded. How do I (if at all) convert .dm_26 files to .wmv/ .avi files?

Uh, I know there's ways to do that. I just don't know very much about them. Hopefully someone else can answer that soon.

2 ways wich make sense:

You go into COnsole and type:

/cl_avidemo x

whereas the x defines the frames taken per second.

now do:

/g_Synchronousclients 1

and

/record blabla

Your base/screenshots folder gets now filled up with single shots of the ingame action you can compile into a movie later on with a video converter such as VirtualDub or TMPGEnc.

Now if you set the cl_avidemo to a high value, lets say like 25 you'll get MANY pics in your screenshots folder and in a resolution of 1024x768 they will take away much space so I recommend to use a lower value (between 10 and 15)


The other method would be to use a Realtime Video capturing tool like FRAPS (http://www.fraps.com/)
They offer a Trial version with limitations though.

This tool just records your ingame stuff into an .avi format (can also become very huge though)
