    Recording all voices, including your own !
    A lot of Tactical Gamer videos demonstrate talking teamwork, and to do that you will need to record your voice along with your team mates. Putting videos on YouTube of good talking teamwork helps to recruit people just like us. There is now a straightforward solution to recording all voices, including your own, and that is to buy Fraps. Get more info here

    Gameplay recorders
    There are several recorders available to try out, see list in here

    Minimising the drain on your hardware while recording
    Many people want to try recording but they quickly find out that its drains their hardware dramatically and it usually puts people off even trying it again. The hardwear drain is not usually CPU or graphics card but hard drive write speed. There are two methods to reduce the hardware drain right down to a level where you can game with higher graphics and still record, they are;
    1. Have windows & the game on one hard drive and record the raw footage onto another hard drive. Doing it all on one hard drive is just too much of a bottleneck. The second hard drive for the raw footage can be an internal or external, for the external make sure its USB 2.0 for the faster write speeds and record at half screen size. For a second internal drive record at half screen or even try full screen, even on high res. This is the main method for alleviating hardware drain.
    2. Reduce the recording footage resolution, the resolution determines how much data is being written second to second onto the hard drive. There are two variations of this (a) play at 1280*720 and record full screen ie at 1280*720, this is usually the maximum a standard 7200RPM hard drive can write at. This is usually the lesser option because people do not want to play at a lower res (b) play at very high resolution ie 1920*1080 and record half screen ie 960*540, then when rendering scale up the res to 1280*720, so that when its uploaded to youtube it triggers the HD

    YouTube widescreen
    Youtube widescreen is triggered by uploading a video at resolution 1280*720
    Youtube super widescreen is triggered by uploading a video at resolution 1920*960 and has slightly sharper image quality that 1280*720, so we recommend rendering up to 1920*960
    Also when you upload at this res, the default 'normal' res seems clearer as well, more info here
