Default Screen capture that works with OS X (10.6)

The latest version of ScreenFlow (v2.1.1) captures WWII Online excellent when I tried it on OS X (10.6.3) on my iMac from August 2007 (first aluminium iMac generation).

ScreenFlow can be used it without paying the license fee. However you get a "watermark" over the movie unless you pay the license fee.

You can easily add music and otherwise edit the movie and sound.

No hassle to install. Just drag-drop the app to your program folder and your are up'n running.

I didn't notice any significant FPS drop when I used it on the live server at the fringes of a hot town. During my short test didn't I even notice that ScreenFlow was working in the background. I therefore have really big hopes for this program.

How do you get it to start while you are in-game? Do you have to switch to finder?

Yes, I had to switch to Finder by clicking "cmd-F" and then do I "cmd-Tab" to Finder.

In Finder did I just click the key-combo to start the program. I've choosen "cmd-*" (* in numb pad on an extended keyboard) to start/stop the capturing, but anything goes I guess.

Is that cpu accelerator easy to use?
I dont know much about computers so the easier the better. From what it looks like on that pic, all you do is open it and basically drag the meter over?
And this isnt gonnna crash my imac is it? This is ultimately my moms and she would be pissed if i did! lol

Default Re: OS 10.x system and game performance utilities.

For those with "dual" video cards in a system and OSX thinks it's smart enough to switch them automagically on you - thus crashing WWIIOL when you tab out of it and into another application (because it switches to a different video card) use this: http://codykrieger.com/gfxCardStatus/

It allows you to "hard code" which video card to use and thus bypassed the OSX automagicaly switching feature. It solved all my crashing issues when switching applications.

Seems fine to me.

I've had a couple of minor problems with 10.9 but the game, fortunately, is not one of them.
