Is there any freeware programs out there that can make a video of what you see in game for a certain period of time or so. So that it just tapes whats on my screen instead of me having to actually tape it off the screen and make it look horrible.

The easiest way of course is a video capture card, but that takes money, and who wants to spend that? ;)

If you have a good system with a good video card, its POSSIBLE to use a program called Camtasia Studio (http://www.techsmith.com/products/studio/default2.asp) ... best of all, you can convert the avi's to flash when you are done and they only take a fourth of the hard drive space!

Bad news: if it works, expect the game to run very sllllloooooowwww... especially if you set it at a decent frame rate. But when you play it back it should be fine.
