The BEST way is clearly drawing each frame into a notepad and then flicking the pages really quick to make them move! If you have FRAPS it should work as well as any other capture program. What you will also need is a video editor (post production tool? I'm unsure of the jargon). A really simple fre...

Re: Achivement system

Angel of Death - Have killed over 60% percent of the world population in a single game. So can I nuke my own population to qualify? >D Seriously, I like the idea. Just wondering how well it would work when a player can repeatedly change their name. That means tracking CD keys. unless it's stored cl...

I've seen something similar happen.

As Russia, placing a fleet of six subs in the Pacific, I must have put them on the invisible line joining the map. I could only see four of the six until I moved them away. I thought I'd lost two precious subs!

For the guys who have a failure immediately after launching Defcon, try deleting game-history.txt from your Defcon folder (I believe in Steam it should be C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\Common\defcon\ and for stand alone it should be something like C:\Program Files\Defcon\). I've found that any bl...

People already whine about "Steam players", can you imagine what "Console players" would be like? =)

It's probably in C:\Program Files\Defcon\preferences.txt
You might also want to delete game-history.txt or at least check it contains no empty game names

I think the problem is if a game name is blank in the file.
Posted the problem in the Windows Troubleshooting forum in the hope the devs will see it and fix it =)

After that it worked! Probably had some problem reading from one of the files and decided to give up =P Edit: Just had ...
