    So... You start a fight... as usual... And BAM KAPCHOOM SWANG you're ded. Because that guy you were fighting has such a bad aim they need an hack to insta- aim and cooldown their attacks.
    Not fair. Not an excuse. So yeah, you don't wanna see these people ever again. And HERE in this post YOU (yes you beautiful person) can learn how to be ALWAYS ready for recording the HAXXXX
    Oh, forgot to say (well actually it's in the title) This is a tutorial based on Nvidia Shadowplay, a REALLY cool software you have FREE with a GTX series GPU.

    First thing you wanna do is to open "GeForce Experience"
    (tip: just type gef no one will notice anything)
    [​IMG]
    Sorry, my PC is in Italian so... yeah. But you should still be able to see the same icon and name.
    Wait some minutes before it launches... Oh, look, it popped up!
    [​IMG]
    Now what you're seeing here is a bunch of information about drivers and things... Not what we came for. Do you see that? Top-right corner. Yes. YESS >:D
    It's Shadowplay.
    Click it.
    [​IMG]
    OMG A POPUP
    Again. It's Shadowplay.
    Turn it on. Literally.
    Switch the little button-kinda-thing, like this:
    [​IMG]
    OH NOW IT GLOWS TOO THIS IS SORCERYYY
    Nope. Shadowplay.
    But this time it's on.
    You can see a bunch of options (only-kinda-not exactly) for experienced users.
    The first one is for the modes. You ca select manual start and stop, only save the last 10 minutes (it's actually customizable!!!) of recording.
    The other one is, of course, for the lenght of those last minutes you are gonna save
    And then Quality. The big one.
    You can select Low, Medium, or High. If you have access to Youtube just select High. But if you can only use free video hosting services like SendVid for whatever reason, better to go for Low. (it reduces size of the file wich usually has to be 1024MB or less for those kind of video hosting websites. Or just upload it to a private cloud with TONS of space (I use OneDrive) because they usually have a "share link". Really useful feature. No size limits. Just... It'll take SOME time to load...
    By the way you can also select "Custom" quality where you can adjust Frames Per Second and Resolution.
    Then you can select Audio.
    Audio in game, In game +Mic or only Mic.

    Leave Shadowplay on. It should start automatically in the background when you restart your PC
    In the folder icon under the On-Off switch (ok I checked wikipedia for that problems?) you can choose the folder where your records are gonna be saved.
    Press Alt + F9 to start recording
    Press it again to... STOP recording!
    Important note: go to the gears under the On-Off switch to go to settings and turn on "show monitor".
    As Minecraft is not a "Game" for Shadowplay, It'll not record it UNLESS you check that lil' box.
    Yup.

    If you have any questions just ask!

    Nice. I would prefer using the windows 10 default recorder, it records with the click of a keyboard key. Also OBS and fraps and Xsplit all do the same.

    I know that Fraps needs a license. Free one click recorders:
    - OBS
    - Xsplit
    - Bandicam
    - Windows 10 recorder (Doesn't need a download and install)

    Agree, but this is for users who are still on Windows 7 or under and to show the features of some GPUs.
    Also, Shadowplay is known for not affecting the In-Game FPS.

    Most users have updated to windows 10, as there was the free upgrade. Plus, is they have a GPU, they most likely have OBS.

    Well Shadowplay is unique though In some of Its features, and some users didn't use the free upgrade because they didn't like the update (for some reason i mean Win10 is AMAZING!

    I would feel like users are more likely to use a broadcaster software. But anyway, your method works.

    The thing about windows 10 screen recorder is that u have to click a certain key to start recording, so when i accidentally click that key during gameplay it messes with my game.
